Homeowner's $37,000 meth clean-up deemed unnecessary

From Morning Report, 7:12 am on 30 May 2018

The owner of a house where traces of methamphetamine were found says she's devastated to learn she didn't need to go through the stress and the $37,000 expense of getting it decontaminated. Yesterday the government's chief science advisor Sir Peter Gluckman said there's never been evidence of illness from third-hand exposure to methamphetamine anywhere in the world. The official verdict that traces of meth pose no danger comes too late for the hundreds of people evicted from supposedly contaminated homes or forced to pay enormous clean up bills.
