Over the years I’ve inspected a couple of homes that had Marijuana grow operations. This year I have inspected (3) so far. In Michigan with a License it is not illegal to grow Marijuana as a Care Giver or Patient. One of the homes, the Seller showed me his “Care Giver” license and the set-up was clean, very elaborate, and appeared to be legit. The other 2 were obvious illegal operations and there was so many electrical safety defects I could not possibly list them all.
I am curious if others are seeing an increase frequency in these operations and what narrative do you use. I don’t care if there is a grow operation because I don’t know if a licensed been issued but more concerned with all the defects and safety hazards due to the unregulated handyman installations.
Here an example of a grow operation I discovered in the crawlspace just last week. The floor of the crawlspace was cut out, dirt removed and replaced with potting soil, support columns removed, moisture issues, venting issues, numerous electrical and plumbing issues and the list goes on.
