The sale of meth lab homes in Ohio may be changing

Councilwoman Christine Croce has introduced legislation that seeks to provide some protection to home buyers. She wants anyone who owns a home or rental property that was once used as a meth lab to record that information on a city form, a form that would be given to a new buyer. If her legislation gets passed, selling a meth lab home without disclosing that information to a buyer would be considered a first-degree misdemeanor. The crime would be punishable by a maximum of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
