CONCORD – As if the heroin epidemic was not bad enough in New Hampshire there is growing concern about a new form of meth that could be making a comeback.
A lab full of ingredients like bleach and gasoline additives are the most commonly used in meth production.
But now, the one-pot method is growing throughout the state, especially in Concord.
This new form of meth is known as Shake and Bake and it gets its name from mixing toxic ingredients together in a bottle then letting in air.
However, one wrong move could cause an explosive result.
Not only is the final product extremely volatile and dangerous but so is the process of producing it.
So far, there have been 19 Shake and Bake buys so far this year – compared to one between the years of 2003 and 2007.
This new meth has a street value more than double that of heroin and cocaine – about $200 a gram.
So far Shake and Bake has not been connected to any drug-related deaths in the state and police want to keep it that way.
