Hi Guys,

This seemingly cavalier attitude that the authorities have toward grow-ops in 
the USA is rather surprising and alarming to me at the same time...

Here in The Great White North the police go so far as to use helicopters with 
infared sensors to "spot" so-called hot houses from scans while in the air...I 
believe there is even a law in place now in Ontario that mandates real estate 
agents to disclose to potential buyers whether or not domiciles on the market 
were grow-up havens at one time.

Why the feeling of subjugation & helplessness on the part of Americam Hams when 
it comes to these things...? Don't you guys have criminal law on your side when 
all is said & done...?! I just don't get this...
