Growing marijuana has become a problem in rural and urban neighborhoods across the BC. When it comes time to purchase a house, there are some tell-tale signs to look for that may indicate the house was used to produce illegal substanc­es.

Some signs that a house has been used to grow marijuana include:

  • Unusual number of recepta­cles added in rooms,
  • Circular stains on carpets or concrete floor,
  • Mould growth on floors, walls, ceilings, etc.
  • Recently painted foundation walls and floors,
  • Patching in the foundation,
  • Signs of nail holes in the ceiling,
  • Patching in the ground at the exterior around the main electrical service
  • Patching in the floors between levels in the home where venti­lation ducting was run
