The manufacture and use of methamphetamine occurs in various locations, including residential houses and rental homes. Unlike the controlled manufacture of chemicals and drugs, clandestine manufacture results in the uncontrolled storage, use, generation, and disposal of a wide range of chemicals and the deposit of methamphetamine drug residues on indoor surfaces. These residues have been found at high levels on porous and nonporous surfaces and have been shown to persist for months to years. Persons exposed to these environments often show adverse health effects, especially in children. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/65/wr/mm6552a3.htm?s_cid=mm6552a3_w

undeclared meth labs.
Along with that disclosure statement the seller must inform the buyer of the following:
However, here in Minnesota it is legal to sell a property without a disclosure if a waiver is agreed upon by both buyer and seller. This is common practice for foreclosures and rental properties where the owner has not lived in the property for the past year. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/513.60
