What is the law regarding disclosure of asbestos ceilings?

Question Details: Earlier this month, I purchased a condo that was built in late 1960s. I had a home inspector for inspecting condo before sale. It has a popcorn ceiling which turns out has 2.3 asbestos in it. I was not informed by either the inspector or the real estate agent that this popcorn ceiling can have asbestos. Do I have any right to ask for an abatement for the cost coverage? Is there a real estate law that says I should have been informed of the possibility of asbestos in the ceiling before we purchased? Now that I know there is asbestos do I have to inform future buyers or renters of this?
