On July 18, 2015, an explosion at the National Institute of Standards and Technology campus, in Gaithersburg, Md., led to an investigation of a suspected illegal methamphetamine lab on campus, a taxpayer-funded facility. A security officer was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital. He immediately resigned from his job. The Federal Drug Enforcement agency and Congress have joined the police investigation. Their statement is that no research project or scientists were injured.!
