DEA meth database sparks concerns.

NAA/NMHC have submitted comments to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) expressing concerns over the DEA's National Clandestine Laboratory Registry. The online database (www.usdoj.gov/dea/seizures/index.html), which went live in December, lists apartment communities that may be involved in storing, manufacturing or distributing methamphetamine.

NAA/NMHC's letter cites concerns that the database: 1. does not indicate why communities have been listed; 2. does not offer an appeals process to remove erroneously identified communities; and 3. does not have a mechanism to remove communities that have been appropriately remediated. The letter is at www.naahq.org/govern_affairs/Issues/.
