Worse than anything in hospital that is for sure. I still never found out if it was coke or meth. I never really knew what meth was until it shows in the newss.I had heard about crack and stuff but a friend of mine came over one night and asked me if I was smoking crack-undoubtly it came up the vents..and he knew exactly what it was..so it prob was crack but I will never forget that awful odor...I always had to burn alot of candles to rid my belongings of stench. Finally they moved out. Strange group..for sure.

Just talked to husband, he is being docile and will be out on Sunday. He goes into alcohol detox soon, I gave him some multivitamins and calcium/magnesium bottles with instructions to take them because of his alcoholism. He promised to. I wished him luck and told him I'd give him a portion of his deposit back if he was out on Sunday.
I'm selling this property this spring, I will more than double my investment. I don't want to deal with this type of tenant anymore

Oregon used to have one of the nations highest area of meth users, one police officer for multnomah county started the "faces of meth" campaign that shows the mug shots of users over time. Even if you think that they are not making it they could, as there have been meth labs found inside of cars, so use caution when entering the house.Here in Oregon, pseudoephedrine isn't just behind the pharmacy counter, you need a perscription for the stuff......it's considered a controlled substance. We have a huge Meth problem here and this is one way they're trying to address it.

The daughter of my tenant came over the other day when I came for the 24 hr notice that the officer said I had a right to do. She does have all the appearances of a meth user, and was confrontational until I stated that I was calling the cops. It's really sad. she has a baby of about 1 1/2
