Risks

There are many risks and dangers associated with Marihuana Grow Houses that can impact on the safety and well being of the neighbourhood.

Poisonous Fumes: noxious fumes can build up inside the house or be vented to the outside, effecting neighboring homes and properties.

Fires: fire hazards include overheated high intensity lighting and live hydro wires left exposed when external hydro meters are bypassed to avoid high electrical costs.

Electrocution: people inexperienced with rewiring may electrocute themselves or others who come in contact with the external meter. People can also receive a shock from electrical bypasses charging the ground itself.

Booby Traps: life-threatening traps may be set by the growers to protect their crop from unauthorized persons entering the home or onto the property.

Environmental Damage:
chemicals used in Grow House Operations are improperly disposed of, often draining into the ground and water system.

Hazard to Young Children: children living in the neighbourhood are exposed to many of the risks and health concerns mentioned

Loss of property value: If recent history is of any indication, a property that has been used as a grow house, loses significant market value and takes a longer time to sell. It can also affect values of the neighbourhood properties
