Grow HouseMarijuana grow house is the common phrase used to describe a property, typically in a suburban area, used for the express purpose of marijuana cultivation. These properties use complex irrigation systems and are usually identified by law enforcement by a significant spike in energy use.

Typically, criminal consequences of drug offenses such as operating a grow house can vary widely. There are three factors that can influence the degree of penalties you face.

  • A landlord who knows that a grow house is being operated and continues to let an individual rent or lease the property could face a third-degree felony charge.
  • A resident who knows about the grow house or is active in its operation could face a second-degree felony charge.
  • If there is a child present - even if the child does not live in the grow house - a landlord or resident could face a first-degree felony charge.

A conviction on felony charges can mean several years in state prison. A first-degree felony, for example, is punishable by up to 30 years incarceration.
