The problem of clandestine, or mobile meth labs in Marlborough, is part of a drug awareness seminar in Blenheim next week. And Community Constable Russell Smith, says it's common for P manufacuturers to have gear that can be packed into a vehicle. With reports of people using utes and shipping containers to evade detection. The Ministry of Health estimated about 34,000 people were taking an amphetamine substance, including P, each year - and a report out last year from the Drug Harm Index put the annual social cost of meth at $1.8 billion. Russell is giving a talk to educate people about the use of meth and its effects, at REAP in Marlborough.
