The Green, Green Grass of Home

That is, grow houses in Tampa.

TAMPA - The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office announced the dismantling of 62 marijuana grow houses and about 70 arrests related to the investigation this morning.

Operation Indoor Outlaws began in February, and investigators continued to raid grow houses through last night, Sheriff David Gee said.

A total of 5,806 marijuana plants were seized during the investigation, along with 3,240 pounds of marijuana. Gee described the operation at a sheriff's conference room surrounded by some of the seized plants and marijuana.

Forgive me if I have posted about a similar bust on this blog, but apparently growing indoor dope is big here in Tampa. The reason why these guys steal electricity is because a big spike in the power bill is a dead giveaway that your house contains an emerald forest
