FAQ’s “P” Testing
Methamphetamine is an extremely addictive, powerful stimulant. It produces wakefulness, hyperactivity and a euphoric effect. Methamphetamine is also known as speed, pure, P, burn, goey, crank, meth, crystal, ice and yaba. (http://www.police.govt.nz/advice/drugs-and-alcohol/methamphetamine-and-law#anchor6)
Property managers and landlords have a vested interest in the property and lack the expertise for Meth testing. Any test results may be easily challenged based on the agency or landlord not being an independent testing company as it may be perceived they might represent their own interests over and above the tenant’s interests.
This document is not legal advice and should not be taken as such. HHAST strongly recommends landlords seek independent legal advice prior to conducting any “P” testing on their property.
