Australia has the highest number of meth users per capita in the English speaking world, and that number is now three times higher than it was in 2011. In New South Wales alone the number of meth labs has doubled over the past eight years.
Most people are under the misconception that meth labs are the main concern in rental properties, but the biggest threat to rental properties is not meth labs, it’s meth users.
