In these articles there is little information about how the police knew that marijuana was being grown in this home. From the charges that issued it appears that at least one of the defendants sold to an informant or an undercover police officer. There are however other ways to detect houses where marijuana is grown. Unusually high electric bills are often an indicator. Grow lights use a tremendous amount of electricity. Windows covered with dark plastic or heavy curtains sometimes indicate illicit activity. Condensation on windows is associated with marijuana cultivation. The humming of grow lights or rooms lighted twenty four hours per day might also signify the presence of this activity. There are of course innocent explanations that might account for the existence of these factors thereby making it extremely important that anyone charged with a Crime in Massachusetts contact an Experienced Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer.
