One of my college professors did some fieldwork studying meth labs in Missouri, and he would always offer to buy any informants who lived in (FEMA) trailers a large potted plant - not necessarily because that was the friendly thing to do, but because of the crazy high level of fermaldehyde the trailers contained, and the slight fix a big ass plant provided to that. Problem is, to have enough plants to fully mitigate the problem would basically turn a trailer into a swamp.
