The marijuana growers are very concerned that their operation emits a clearly
identifiable noise signature. During the growing season, they use a 16 hour on
cycle, changing to 12 hours as the crop is nearly ripe. This not only gives a
good indication of what they are growing, but also tells people when it is
ready for harvest.
Growers in some states are concerned about law enforcement, but most are more
concerned about theft. A large growing operation can have a valuable crop in
the home of the grower and there are people who would steal it and not care if
anyone gets hurt in the process. Growers that rent a home are also concerned
that a landlord may not appreciate the ad hoc modifications to the home's
electrical system and the very high humidity in the house. I saw a Holmes on
Homes show that documented extensive damage and mold in a grow house.
By law, here in Ontario, a real estate agent is mandated to tell any & all
prospective buyers of a home if the place was ever the site of a violent death
(as in murder), or if there was ever a grow-up on the premises...
