> >I do, however, wonder about the references to meth labs.  These are 
illegal operations and don=92t really seem to be in the prevue of this 
I include the meth lab references for a couple of reasons:
1) the "technology" associated with them seems to be changing rapidly as 
they appear to be showing up in a wider variety of places (cars, 
backpacks, etc.)
2) concern about meth labs is a key component of the way protocols are 
written for emergency responders reacting to a hazmat situation
3) as a reminder that chemical security issues are becoming increasingly 
important in the pubic's mind for at least one specific reason

These and other illegal activities help to explain the genesis of some 
of the regulations we're asked to deal with...
