Luckless Pedestrian got me thinking about the law enforcement and planning connections that seem to be making the news lately. I've heard that some jurisdictions are considering or have created strict new regulations against using known Methamphetamine production homes/buildings without first completing a decontamination process.
It would seem reasonable to expect the police departments/drug task forces to notify building departments of known drug production homes/condo's/commercial structures after a bust. Since Meth production uses some nasty stuff (not sure about the specific chemicals used) why not pass some zoning regulations that make it a code violation to rent, sale or use a property known to have been a drug production facility without first proving that it is decontaminated and safe for human habitation? This would seem to me to be the type of cooperation between law enforcement and planning that makes sense.....what say you all?
