I have been a home inspector in Vancouver for several years now and have seen the results that clandestine drug labs can have on a property. This is just one of the tell-tale signs that you may be unsuspectingly investing in a ‘drug-lab’. While this comes from an American government site, the signs and dangers are the same in Canada. If you are not using a local home inspector to inspect your purchase, please be aware that there are significant dangers in buying a former ‘drug-lab’ or ‘grow-op’ (please see my previous post http://stonegate-home-inspections.com/blog/marijuana-grow-op-identification-home-inspection-vancouver-port-coquitlam-coquitlam-port-moody-and-maple-ridge/ for marijuana grow operation identification hints)
The following link is related to Meth Labs and discusses visible signs of Methamphetamine production on propane cylinders, a commonly used vessel in the production of Methamphetamine.
