Cannabis plants found in a grow house
A Grow house is a property, owned or rented, usually located in a suburban residential or industrial neighborhood, that is primarily used for the production of marijuana. .Marijuana, is illegal to produce and sell in Canada & most other countries. It is a product of the plant Cannabis sativa.)
With obvious threat of prosecution from the government the cannabis growers are now moving their operations indoors to avoid attention directed towards outdoor cultivation.
Many of these indoor operations are located in grow houses, which are homes wholly or substantially dedicated to the cultivation of the cannabis plant and the production of marijuana. These homes are often located in upscale residential neighborhoods.
The houses are typically outfitted with extensive hydroponic equipment to provide water, food, and light to the plants, and the houses themselves are usually kept in good condition to blend in with the neighborhood.
These operations often involve significant alteration to the dwelling structure and electrical system. Such changes compromise structural integrity and safety of the property and increases fire hazard. These operations require unusually high electrical usage and can be identified by authorities by their electric usage. To defeat this, operators make illegal electrical hookups making it harder for authorities to identify them, however, there are enough tell tale signs in the property to ascertain that the property is a grow house.
Furthermore, marijuana growing operations can result in significant mould growth which is health hazard.
