The manufacturing of methamphetame leaves residues that can be quite toxic.  As a result, regulations have been

instituted to protect the public from housing where previous meth use and manufacturing took place.   The original meth regulations

were brought to be through the extensive use of residual housing to manufacture the meth products.  Meth use and manufacturing

has become more prevalent in multifamily, commerial real estate and hotels.  Depending on the state, a meth discovery in your property

can initiate a series of local or state regulations to determine whether meth is present and what needs to be done if it is.  William Frye posted

a brief article in the online version of Lodging,which should get you thinking about investigating the mandatory protocols that could affect your

property if a meth discovery is made at your hotel.  Here is the link:  http://lodgingmagazine.com/meth-labs-a-dangerous-hotel-challenge/
