I don’t know if other states have this but I just came across this list for the State of Washington, where I live and I absolutely love it.
What it is is a list of addresses where the police busted people for having a meth lab. This means that if you’re about to purchase a home, you might want to make sure that it isn’t one of the homes on this list.
Meth labs are extremely toxic and the chemicals involved get absorbed into everything, making the location unsafe for a very long time to come unless it is properly cleaned up. Even once the location has been decontaminated one has to wonder about the long term effects of living in such an environment.
