Montana company offering up option for meth exposure testing

MISSOULA – Are you buying a used car that previously may have been used to transport meth? Or is your child going to a daycare that could have been a meth lab in the past?

These are the questions a Montana pair are trying to answer with a new form of methamphetamine testing.

The Montana Department of Justice reported last year a 415% increase in methamphetamine found in controlled substance cases from 2011 to 2017 and a 375% jump in meth found in postmortem cases in that same span of time.

The increase of meth entering our state also raises the possibility of exposure increases.
