Yes. If you find yourself in that situation, get out.
Kat... Meth IS an environmental hazard..
Here is some info:
How is Crystal Meth Manufactured?
Crystal meth is "cooked" in labs that spring up in abandoned homes, warehouses, and kitchens in neighborhoods across the country. Household chemicals and solvents purchased in grocery and hardware stores, over the counter medications such as pseudophed, and ordinary items such as pots and pans are used to manufacture this killer. When these ordinary ingredients are combined the result is a deadly form of amphetamine...crystal meth...and toxic by-products that contaminate the air, can cause illness and death, and are highly volatile, often exploding without warning. When meth labs are found and shut down, hazardous materials units are required to properly handle and dismantle the labs in order to protect homes and people living near the lab.
People cooking methamphetamine in clandestine laboratories produce a toxic cloud that spreads through the entire house or apartment, according to researchers at National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver.
Prior to the findings that were submitted to Congress and the Drug Enforcement Administration, researchers said the effects of cooking meth were unknown.
The findings help identify and quantify the health hazard clandestine methamphetamine laboratories pose to adults and children living in the labs, and to health and law enforcement personnel entering them.
Associate Professor John Martyny said researchers were surprised by the large amount of acid and meth vaporized during the cook.
"The chemicals spread throughout the house. The methamphetamine is deposited everywhere, from walls and carpets to microwaves, tabletops and clothing. Children living in those labs might as well be taking the drug directly."

Oh, just to brighten your day a little more, meth, while cooking, is also extremely flammable and highly explosive.
Yes very much.You need a complete HasMat suit to avoid absorbing any mask,suit,boots and gloves sealed off completely.
Hell yes...not only that that the factors for explosion should be enough to keep you away....cooking meth is a very dangesous and unstable process that can and often does lead to explosions and fires across the country.
Yes, but only traces. Even if you touch it it will.
