We live in a really bad town..and there are alot of meth labs around here...The house across from our apartment blew up and caught on fire on Monday...the smell was terrible. Should i be worried about my kids breathing the air...this type of thing happens at least once every couple of months around here..we cant move until July... Can the air get us sick...??

  • wow I'm so sorry you have to live in an area like that! I think your right to be worried! U should look up a number for public health and safety for your area, and find out if that's harmful!!! The City may have an obligation to do something about it!

  • i just moved to texas from arkansas and meth labs were real bad there. i've had many friends who are locked up or went totally down hill cause of it.
    but i don't think your kids are in danger unless there like in the house with them. and only prolonged exposure will hurt someone.
    i do however suggest to move as soon as you can though. when it comes to tweekers you also have to worry about them stealing your car or braking in your house to get $$$ for more drugs.
