Meth labs, whether large or small, are dangerous. Chemicals used in making meth are dangerous, the process of making meth is dangerous, and the waste left behind is dangerous.
Methamphetamine is an illegal stimulant typically made in "laboratories" from common materials, many of which are readily available to the maker. Recipes for the substance and step-by-step instructions can be found on the Internet, making it possible that a meth lab could be located in nearly any neighborhood in any city, any rural setting, or even campers and fish houses.
Local people will be able to sell or have their old coins and antiques evaluated at a free event being held at the Valley City Eagles Aerie from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, said William Gross, president and owner of Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyers LLP.
