Cleaning Up Meth Labs Costly for Mississippi

March 2, 2010- In Mississippi, it costs from $2,500 to $7,000 to clean up a meth lab, said director Marshall Fisher. In 2009, more than 620 meth labs were seized in the state, which translates to a cost of between $1.5 million and $4.3 million.

"A child in state custody who has been injured because of a meth lab will have his or her medical care paid for by the state, maybe forever," Dixon said. "Many meth labs are discovered because they explode."
