You Might Have to Tell Your Realtor If You Cooked Meth in Your Basement

If you — or, you know, "someone" — has cooked crystal meth in your basement or your 1989 Ford Taurus, Ohio wants everyone to know about it. The Ohio House passed a bill that would require you to disclose whether your house was ever used in a Breaking Bad-way to potential buyers. Could get awkward.

"Listen, the bay window in the family room provides spectacular views of the sunset."

Oh, wonderful.

"All appliances have been updated in the last five years. The hardwood floors are the originals. Brand new, energy-efficient windows were installed last summer."

Terrific, I'm prepared to make an offer.

"And, by the way, that smell coming from the basement is normal. I used to cook meth down there."

The bill now goes to the Senate. Details on the Methamphetamine Awareness and Notification Act from the AP after the jump.
