Most Drug Labs Discovered in Australia Were Found in Queensland

The Australian Crime Commission reported that up to 54 percent of all drug labs discovered in Australia between 2001 to 2011 were located in the state of Queensland. Most of the clandestine labs were found in residential areas.

In 2012, security officials seized nearly 25 kilograms of precursor chemicals from entering the country and its way to drug labs.
