Thank you AT for posting this article! I grew up in an area with a lot of meth labs and they're very toxic and the chemicals leftover can cause health problems. Clean-up is possible, but people should be aware of the risks and decide for themselves if they want to take on the task.


This House is Broken-Bad: How Not to Buy a Meth House MSN Real Estate

I think this post is very irresponsible on the part of the site, since it does not address the real health risks of living in a former meth house. Don't just show a picture of a fancy kitchen. Tell the reader how they tested the house to make sure it wasn't toxic anymore and how they decontaminated it if it was. Or maybe this wasn't a former meth house at all, but sounded jazzier to call it that in the headline since it was once suggested it could be. And if that's the case, shame on you. It's not a light matter.

This is a real teaching moment and instead you've just inspired a bunch of people to go out and get a great deal on a "meth house", and you haven't even told them that there are real health risks that should be considered.
