Meth Street Value

Meth Prices Street ValueMeth street value varies across the United States. The estimated cost of making meth is $100 an ounce, with a meth street value of $800 an ounce. Meth street value is approximately $3,000 per pound. While cheap for the people who make it, meth is costly for taxpayers. The OSBI estimates that it costs an average of $2,000 to clean up a lab. Many law enforcement agencies including the OSBI contract out for cleaning services. The OSBI spends $1 million on cleaning services each year.

According to a new study, employers are losing thousands of dollars a year due to meth use by employees. Researchers extrapolated that each meth user costs an employer an average of $47,500 annually.  Meth use by employees was estimated to cost just over $21 million annually.

The study examined the six major categories of cost meth users impose on employers: Increased absenteeism, lost productivity, increased turnover, increased employee theft, increased worker compensation claims and increased healthcare premium costs. Many workers use methamphetamine to stay awake for second jobs or to sharpen concentration. But use of the drug ultimately costs both workers and employers big.

Positive drug tests for amphetamines in the workplace jumped 6 percent last year and 44 percent in 2003, even as use of other drugs appeared to decline. "Drug abuse in the workplace is decreasing, but ironically, methamphetamine positives are increasing," said Mark de Bernardo, executive director of the Institute for a Drug-Free Workplace in Washington.
