charleston wv real estate for sale: Am I Buying A Meth House? - 07/29/12 09:00 PM

Am I Buying A Meth House?
What is Meth? Short for methamphetamine, it is an illegal home cooked psycho-stimulant drug with ingredients that may include paint thinner, Freon, starter fluid, lye, Drano, and battery acid to name a few.
Once the highly addictive drug is cooked and smoked or inhaled, a euphoric feeling is provided to the user.
Explosions that can level an entire home are possible due to the volatile elements.
If caught the residence must be remediated to remove all hazardous substances that may have been dumped into the plumbing or absorbed into the ventilation system and walls during the creation process.
