Metro Battles Marijuana Grow Houses
(Las Vegas, NV) — Metro Police hope a new public service announcement will help reduce the number of marijuana grow houses in the Vegas Valley. The video, now airing on YouTube, urges people to call police if they suspect a home is being used to cultivate pot.
Metro says warning signs include nighttime activity, windows covered with tin foil, and a “skunk-like” odor coming from the house. So far this year, police have shut down more than 80 grow houses in the valley.
