The percentage is about 10-15 per this piece and others I have read. Higher than that for drug use though, like over 50% per this article but I have seen others with higher estimates.
Bullshit, more like a least a third. A huge chunk of the mentally ill are also self medicating with narcotics, so theres a large amount of overlap with drg use percentages.
There are also the ones who are mentally ill because they have fried their brains on drugs. As in, they weren't crazy before the drugs, but they are now, and would remain so even if they got 100% clean.

Yep and just like clockwork my daughter and her roommate received notification of a $200/month rent increase yesterday (on a $1500/month 2bdrm rental in Golden Hill area of San Diego).

Landlord has to move quick and get the next couple or 3 years worth of steps in before the limits take effect.

Law of unintended consequences is lost on the Left. Doesn't matter if they hurt that ones they meant to help -- only that they mean't to help.
I would have her check the details of the law. The law is retroactive to March and unless the unit falls into one of the exceptions the landlord might have increased her rent too much.

Yep, I have her doing just that. It's limited to 5%/year + inflation. I see inflation rate reported from 1.5 to 1.8% reported for 2019.
So $6.80/$100 of rent is the potential cap.

I'm not sure what is recognized as the inflation measure. I need to go look for that detail in the statute.
I don't know if that inflation rate is for the previous calendar year, projections for the current year or trailing 12 months (it's almost certainly tied to a calendar year though).

And there are those who are suffering from effects of abuse and sexual trauma. Have experience with a young woman this past year who had such bad PTSD and social anxiety from being raped (combined with TBI) that she couldn't function well enough to keep a job very long and couldn't go to a mission/homeless center type situation for housing.

Now seeing more gun control passing, like restricting the rights of 18-20 year olds. Perhaps they shouldn't be able to vote either if they can't be trusted with guns.

The age of legal majority needs to equal the voting age needs to equal the drinking age needs to equal the smoking age needs to equal the firearms ownership age needs to equal the "draft" age. 18, 21, 35, whatever. They should all be the same

I do think it is not just within a lease, but even if re-renting after vacant or whatever. I.e. no connection to the market, which is what actually drives price

If you guys knew how many thousand "Katrina Trailers" were allowed to rot on storage lots, rather than be sold at discount or given to "homeless people", it would make you angry........ :x
We scrapped out a batch of them, salvaged what we could, but between the units that were trashed by the tenants and the unused ones that had roof leaks and molded, we didn't get a lot of goodies.
