I have relatives in law enforcement in a small, rural area, and they told me that at least once a year a house or trailer blows up with everyone in it. Sad.

Check the water consumption
A dramatic spike in water consumption could signal drug manufacturing.
• Faded paint work
If intense lighting is used as part of a hydroponics set up it may visibly fade paintwork.


Does a marijuana grow really count as a "drug lab"?

In Australia? Yes

/I think anything that isn't potentially immediately fatal is illegal there

Random explosions don't mean they're necessarily making drugs. They could just be time lords. I can think of one Tennant that was.
 
2014-05-02 11:59:52 PM  
So what I gather from this is "If you find a drug lab in a tenant's building, they're probably running a drug lab"

Closely check what sort of hats they wear.

Tenant(s) go by street names such as 'Badger', 'Skinny Pete', 'Tuco', 'Mike', 'No Doz', 'Krazy-8', etc...

Regardless of their level of sophistication or size, clandestine laboratories pose significant risks to the community

This represents prohibition's endpoint, a kind of stasis.  The authorities rack reasonably good numbers against big vats due to their technical advantages.  They are, however,  ineffective against, or at least saturated with, a highly granulated bathtub/closet network of smurfs who are basically imbedded in a largely non-hostile matrix.  If we are going to push the rather pallid 'war' analogy, we are in a guerrilla phase in El Norte.

We've got 5 grow lights in the basement and just found out the damn owner is returning from a Singapore gig her husband had years early. And wants to move in months before our lease is up.

We know from our neighbors she's crazy, but sane enough to not go *in* the house without notice but has snooped around the once a year she's in the US. So the past 24 hrs have been a crazy fun game of "let's see what she does to evict us".

Gotta add "starting seedlings" to the damn list.

Keep an eye out of pipes and hoses and equipment that you normally wouldn't find in a house.

Clarification: not pot seedlings.

Although in retrospect happy we never bothered getting our caretakers cards.

(legal in the state, illegal provision in our lease bans it... My uncle is a landlord and I've been casually reading the 'how to very carefully evict tenants for legally growing/partaking' sections in his landlord association newsletters).

I live next door to a police officer, and I made it a point to invite him over for my first homebrewing session after we bought the house. Otherwise, he'd see a guy in the backyard with big steaming vats, coolers, tubes of all kinds, copper cooling contraptions, beakers, etc...

It was a wise move I believe.

Shows what you know.  You revealed to a cop that you can make beer.  He probably won't try to bust you on it, but he will try at every chance to drink all your beer.  Beer to an off duty cop is like nectar to a bee, honey to a bear, or crack to a Canadian Mayor.

Fine by me. He was recently injured pretty severely, so I've dropped by on several occasions with my latest wares to shoot the shiat and get some critique. Having a captive audience (what, you gonna roll away from me officer?) and earning brownie points at the same time.

I'm no meth expert, but I didn't know they used reflux stills to make it. I think that's a moonshine operation.

Australian here. While distilling your own liquor is illegal (and, if you're stupid, dangerous; there are frequent stories here about people killing themselves with their own booze) distilling your own essential oils is not. Thus you just go out and buy yourself an essential oils distillation kit from a retail shop, you can make quite a lot per batch. You don't need to set up lab equipment.

No shiat, home brew suppliers retail the essences you add to your home-distilled booze to make it taste like Scotch or Bourbon or whatever schnapps you like over the counter. Everyone knows someone who distills their own.

Being on friendly terms with any neighbor re: out of the ordinary yet perfectly legal stuff = always a good idea.

Kept wondering why my neighbor kept hinting about pot til I realized he could see the basement grow room lights from the side of his house. Heh. I assumed it was because he knew I worked at an environmental non profit, which was a reasonable enough assumption.

The smell.

Meth labs smell like model airplane glue or the old-style fingernail polish remover. There's no other smell quite like it.

In my state, pot grows are specifically exempted from the drug lab regulations.
