QUANTICO , Va. — DEA agents in swat outfits simulated raids on a makeshift methamphetamine lab inside the new-two story building.  A studious-looking man in a white lab coat chatted about the scientific side of the highly-addictive drug made of potentially flammable and explosive chemicals.
It was all part of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s dedication Friday for a new $16.4 million clandestine laboratory training and research center in Quantico that has classrooms, labs and a staging area to practice raids on the dangerous meth labs.
John McCarty, special agent in charge of training for the DEA Academy, said the facility will train federal and local law enforcement people around the world to deal with a drug he says is in a class onto itself.
“Hardly anyone recovers” from meth addiction, he said. “It’s one of the most hideous drugs.”
