Pot producers have been taking marijuana indoors for a long time now. Marijuana growers take their operations inside for two different reasons. First, it makes sense to take grow operation indoors where police helicopters and passing motorists won’t notice a marijuana farm. Second, growing pot indoors allows the growers to make stronger pot and more of it. Some marijuana growers take their operations into the residential homes that they live in or rent from unsuspecting home owners.
If marijuana growers only use one room in their house for cultivating marijuana that is known as having a grow room, if they use the entire house that is known as a marijuana grow house. You make think this uncommon but marijuana grow houses are far from isolated incidents. In fact, in some areas of the United States, the statistics are mind blowing. In Humboldt County, California, where marijuana production is limited legally, law enforcement says that 1,000-7,500 of the homes are marijuana grow houses. In Canada, the estimate of marijuana grow houses is one out of every five.
Marijuana grow houses are a lot of effort but they also reap hundreds of thousands of dollars. A half a pound of pot can sometimes rack in close to 1,000 dollars depending on the market rate and each plant in the marijuana grow house usually yields around half a pound of marijuana. So if a marijuana grower has 50 plants, that’s 25 pounds pot which comes out at about 25,000 dollars and most marijuana grow houses hold way more than 50 plants.
Usually full blown marijuana grow houses are not inhabited by people but are ideally used for the housing of the marijuana plants only. The mangers of the grow houses may operate as many as a dozen marijuana grow houses like this. There are two factors behind the heart of marijuana grow house operations; money and management. Sometimes the people who provide the money for the marijuana grow house are the same people who manage it but sometimes the grow house is funded by different people than it is managed by. For instance, organized crime can fund the grow houses while other people manage it. All marijuana grow houses have someone who manages materials, renovations, setup and staffing in person.
Marijuana grow houses need someone to manage it because if you are going to rent or buy a space you have to deal with landlords. In some cases marijuana grow houses are bought from crooked real estate agents.
Once a marijuana grow house is up and running someone has to see to its’ daily care and maintenance as well as provide security against other criminals who want a slice of the money that is associated with a grow operation of that size.
Law enforcement agencies have some high-tech marijuana grow house detection tools. They use infrared imaging cameras and can spot pot spots due to the heat the indoor lamps produce by simulating sunlight for the plants inside.
Marijuana grow houses are everywhere and are not isolated to one area of the country. In fact it is said that marijuana grow houses are much more common than meth labs these days. Marijuana grow houses take a lot of money to run but can produce a massive profit which is why most people are in the pot business. There are a fewer number of people growing marijuana for medical reasons or for their own use.
Either way marijuana grow houses can bring criminal activity and property damage to the home.
