Methamphetamine really does strike all walks of life. WABC7 reports that federal agents arrested ten men during raids on nine meth labs all over the city. And the men arrested are a pretty diverse group. Citibank vice president Michael Nibb had a lab in his East 39th Street penthouse that overlooked the United Nations building. Columbia graduate student and TA Mehmetcan Dosemeci "mixed methamphetamine to stay awake for tests." Two mechanics mixed batches in the repair bays at Potamkin Mistubishi!
Here's a PDF from the NY State about how to recognize a clandestine meth lab.
