Do you notice that all the windows are all covered up? Do you notice that that you rarely see anyone at the home and, if you do, they never seem to have any groceries or seem to hang out in the garage before leaving?
It could very well be that the occupants are very private but it can also be an indicator that the home is being used as a Marijuana grow house. Shades are often pulled down so that outsiders cannot see all the lights that are on 24/7.

When they come by to check on the operation, they will often stay in the garage.
Sometimes, there will be occupants and they seem to live in a very small area, or even the garage.
Perhaps you just think it is the mysterious neighbors smoking weed, but it may be a sign of a marijuana grow operation, especially if you notice the odor when the wind outside is blowing. Some have said the odor smells like a skunk. If you have pets, pay attention if they seem to be continually “sniffing’ towards the direction of the home you suspect.
Did the occupants of the home, all of a sudden put bars on the windows and doors, or perhaps you have noticed a number of vents added, that are visible from the outside? This can be an indicator that there is a Marijuana grow house in your neighborhood.

Bear in mind that each tip, on it’s own, is not necessarily suspicious, however, if you notice many of the signs, please seriously consider notifying your local authorities that there maybe a marijuana grow house in your neighborhood.
