Absolutely agree. Not only is the house a health hazard, and a blight on the neighborhood for a long time to come, but imagine the characters associated with it. That is what i would be concerned- especially as a parent.

JOHN, no one areas about your novel of a comment, I lost interest in reading it after the first sentence.

anymore than meth? how was growing up in the "reefer rmadness" era. I live down the street as well and this literally does not affect you or I directly. He was not peddling to kids at the park, calm yourself down.

NDGT, He may not have been peddling to kids at the park, but he was certainly suppling those who are willing to. BTW, since your handle references a physicist, you can't be that unintelligent to not see that a grow house is a blight on our neighborhood. Don't be obtuse.

Neil Degrasse Tyson...this does affect you and I directly. The next person who moves into our neighborhood is going to have to spend a whole lot less on their new house than two days ago. This directly affects perception and value for properties here. Not speculation...17 years professional experience in home sales.
