"Cannabis factory"? Since when is it mass produced legally? Or do they mean "grow op"?

Oh, I see. And chemist means drug store and lorry means truck. Duh.

Specialist heating devices were found at the property and the electricity supply had been rigged for the cultivation of the Class B drug, Enfield Police confirmed.

Apparently it wasn't even good pot, I prefer Class A stuff myself

A friend of mine at the power company used to work with the police doing busts. It is pretty common for people to bypass the meter or to steal power from the streetlights to run the growlights, problem is the power company notices the pattern change in the supply, work out where the increase in current draw is likely to be so work with the police in busting the operation. He gave me loads of neat pictures taken of the busts.

When they screw around with the power the idiots can quite often do things like bypass the main fuse or wire up across different phases so end up with outright dangerous wiring which could well be the cause of this fire.

It was exciting but scary at the same time.

Somebody is a bit paranoid.

A case of the officials calling the pot black? Maybe the house was just one big bong...was the basement flooded?

I swear more indoor/home growers are busted by improper use of electricity than anything else.

Also, "cannabis factory".

"I did see a young man a few times. He drove an Audi TT. I was shocked when the firemen told me the house was being used for drugs. It just shows what can happen practically on your doorstep."

Yet the original interview included: "I did see a young man a few times. He drove an Audi TT. I was shocked when the firemen told me the house was being used for drugs. [Had I known there was a supplier this close to my front stoop, it would have saved me endless hours of driving and inconvenience.] It just shows what can happen practically on your doorstep."

When he's fighting fires,
He's always cool and calm.
And everyone admires,
When there's a fire alarm.

Are you being politically correct, or do they actually call it Firefighter Sam in the US?

So do mine. But I sing it as:
When he hears the fire alarm, he takes the needle out of his arm

When there's trouble, he'll be there, in his spandex underwear!

I've only seen it on Comcast On Demand, and they call it Fireman Sam.

Wiki says it was originally recorded in Welsh - so it is probably really called Llfrthrpy Thllam.

My dad's a retired firefighter, and that's what they've been calling them for at least 30 years here. I've never referred to him as a "fireman."

I looked at the DVD, my mistake. It IS Fireman Sam. Wasn't trying to be PC. Honestly, my kid went on vacation with her grandmother and came back with the DVD and watched it for 2 weeks straight. I tried to block out the pain.

It's not bad though. Much better than Bob the Builder which makes me want to wage war on England.

Wouldn't that be more of a greenhouse than a factory?
