According to LEOs I know, "meth labs" have changed or gone away due to the plentiful supply coming from Mexico, garage cooks and labs in the backs of vans are just not cost effective any more when you can buy 30 gallon drums of the stuff dry it and cut it up cheaper.
This is another boogie man urbexors want to worry about, yeah theres still some around but if theyre so common to be an exploring hazard why don't we see anyone posting pics of them?
Ive personally only seen one place I suspected of being a cooking operation and it was no longer active or smelling.
Maybe not industrialized large scale labs made for profit, but there are absolutely are yee-haw redneck backwoods meth labs still kicking. It's not hard to cook and you can make high quality gear for cheap for yourself and buddies.
I work in the ER and see people come in with full body burns from cooking every once in a while.
