Lawyers Say Some Meth Clients Are Making Them Sick


Some Tennessee defense attorneys for suspects in methamphetamine offenses say their clients are making them feel sick, the Associated Press reports. “It’s a problem and I don’t know exactly how to deal with it,” said public defender David Brady in Cookeville, Tn. “We’re looking into it and trying to figure it out.”

Vapors from making meth can cause respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, rashes and sores. Exposure to fumes can cause loss of consciousness and even death. Brady told his attorneys to leave the courtroom when they feel sick from meth fumes. He said poor ventilation in two court buildings could be a contributing factor.
