FLORENCE, AL (AP) -
A state representative who has experienced the cost of cleaning up a
methamphetamine lab has prepared legislation to increase the penalties
for meth manufacturers.
Republican Rep. Lynn Greer of Rogersville told the TimesDaily that he will try to pass a bill that provides an additional 5-year
sentence with no parole or probation for meth manufacturers who use
rented property. His bill also would require them to pay reasonable
costs of cleaning up the site.
Greer said most people are too smart to make meth
in their own homes because the chemicals involved can seep into walls
and carpet. He said the biggest problem is in motels.
Greer said he had a rental property that was used by someone making meth, and it cost about $65,000 to get it cleaned.
