Section 6-5-155

Legislative findings and declarations.

The Legislature finds and declares the following:

(1) There is a drug crisis in the State of Alabama which is plaguing our neighborhoods and our housing and rental accommodations.

(2) Drugs have caused an increase in crime and violence and a deterioration in the habitability of housing and rental accommodations, as well as diminished property values.

(3) Currently there are inadequate incentives for property owners to take a more active role in preventing the use of their property for the manufacture, use, sale, storage, or distribution of drugs.
