Taking the necessary precautions for a safe and secure cannabis seed growth operation is the most important–and frequently overlooked–rule of thumb. Cops in Detroit proved this to be fact when they found a massive marijuana grow thanks to the smell of the building. Having improper equipment or just properly insulating your cannabis plants, such as this grower in Detroit, can lead to unnecessary bullshit with the law.
Michigan police claim to have found 800 pounds of herb in a facility in east Detroit on Thursday. The alleged perp is a 37-year-old who grows for business. As the report details, citizens called and tipped off the police to complain about the stinky smell of marijuana strains. Again, a boneheaded mistake – as there’s plenty you can do to help prevent the scent from seeping out, especially if you have a facility under your control. The cops estimate the growth’s local worth to be 1.8 million dollars.
Sgt. Eren Stevens told local press that he thanked the cooperation of the citizens, quoted saying that “this arrest was from someone that tipped us off.” I suppose the tattle should be thanked, but really, I’d prefer that people mind their own business. The press coverage gave little detail of the arrest, not mentioning if the grow was medicinal or not. In addition, they failed to mention the current fate of the herb itself nor the alleged grower. But this is another clear cut example that having a flawed operation, such as this grower in Detroit, can lead to the unnecessary genocide of cannabis plants.
