For some years we rented a cute trailer in Paragould . We were told by the handy men that the previous owners had cooked meth in it even though the place looked and smelled clean . It was a dream come true. As most know it's hard to find places to rent now days , especially ones you're happy with. We had no idea what they told us was the truth and the land lord only denied and would never confirm until her own some came out of prison and he shared the knowledge with us as well. Daily I would get migraines , felt like my heart was ready to blow up and my lungs on fire. From head to toe I was always in pain. I felt so bad and guilty as a house wife that what started out so nice and well and kept clean every day from top to bottom eventually couldn't do anything except sleep and eat basicly while my husband not only worked but had to eventually take on the house chores as well since it hurt me too much to do so. We figured oh it's blood pressure since I had high blood pressure and was waiting to see a doctor before we found out what else could be wrong with me. Thankfully we finally had it confirmed that yes it was used for cooking meth and the poison literally leaks into the bones of your home. Places like this should be condemned or could prove deadly. I just got done reading a story on yahoo that sounded so familiar to ours. I hope everyone can be aware and know what dangers can lurk in that cute house you're looking into moving into.

That is some good advice. I have seen houses being remodeled, just gutted out because of this. I don't know if it solved the problem or not. Sometimes I think maybe they should be condemned and torn down.

In some states it is against the law to sale/rent property knowingly that it's been busted or used for cooking meth and supposed to be shut down and eventually tore down. Unfortunately seems it's not every state.
