Crystal meth in Virginia is now being made by the users and they can make one batch from a two-liter soda bottle called shake and bake or by a method called the one-pot method which consists of beakers, tubes and glassware and condense all of it into a two-liter bottle. When law enforcement come across these bottles they are exposed to toxic chemicals, fires and explosions. When users make a batch they have to leave it for about an hour and what is alarming is that during that hour the bottle is unattended, whoever comes across the bottle is in immediate danger. State Police have now trained their troopers, first responders and local communities on how to handle these meth bottles when coming upon them.
