Good advice:

"If you're going to grow marijuana in your house, make sure your electricity is done properly"

Had to modify, bad song.(missed it) Sorry.

Off topic but: closest topic I could find.

Not real bad, but discretion is advised. (volume down)

So: Google "cave of weed". 1 heck of an under ground harvesting set up. That was Illegal.

I have inspected two legal grow ops over the last 7 years. I do get calls from the police department on occasion to deal with the illegal ones. They are never happy unless I have the power cut off.

A guy over here thought he was being smart and cut into the tails between the meter panel and the switchboard.
Unfortunately, his knowledge of how these things work was not the best, he had connected on the wrong side of the meter.(Load-side)

Once he fired his operation up, the meter reader called the police after the disc in the meter was seen to be spinning like a chopper rotor.

well ok, i admit i've never fielded that sort of call here

out of curiosity, should advice on 'proper marijuana growing electrity' be solicited, what would one say?

Tell them the best lighting is natural light, usually found on the street side of the residence.

Here is my opinion.
In these dark financial times upon us, I say legalise marijuana, tax it just like they do with tobacco, the country will make a killing, it would bring everyone out in the open.
Also it will reduce bottom-feeder crims that control the fear given by the authorities, nothing to go on with.

If you get upset over this post, just think about the high-flying bankers,lawyers and other sorts that are snorting coke and have been for some years, they are snorting your money, coke used to be the "respectable" drug of the 70's and 80's.
While us minions had to rely on things like beer and wine.
A recession will sort the fittest out though.
