An explosive new method for making meth is responsible for a spike in local meth labs and could present a danger to the public, Bay County Sheriff’s Office drug investigators said this week. Users call it the one-pot method or “Shake and Bake.” “In this method you have to put fuel and fire in the same container and then create pressure in the plastic container,” said Lt. Faith Bell of the Sheriff’s Office. Meth makers usually use a Coke bottle in this method and the process also allows them to be highly mobile, Bell said. However, the concoction is highly unstable and the process can blow a hole in the bottle that shoots out fire, similar to a flamethrower. Sometimes the whole thing explodes. “When these things blow, they are blowing out fire and fuel onto you,” Bell said. “It’s like throwing a bucket of burning gas onto someone.” After Florida passed a law that tracked meth ingredients, Bay County enjoyed a drop in meth activity for about two years.

The newest way to make meth is called the Shake n’ Bake or One-pot method and poses a new danger to communities. New on the scene is the easiest and possibly most dangerous way of making meth. Using the one-pot method means that meth cooks can make meth in one sealed container which is generally flipped upside-down to cause the reaction needed to turn several toxic ingredients into meth. This method generally produces meth in smaller quantity, but doesn’t make it any less dangerous. The chemical reaction going on inside the container (which can be anything from a Coleman fuel can to a soda bottle) causes an extremely high amount of pressure to build up within the container after being shaken; this method can cause a pretty large explosion. In fact, just the other day, a man died from making meth this way. Sources: http://somechicksblog. more
