A grow op house can come with structural problems and mould caused by long-term moisture, to say nothing of the danger of being attacked by criminals who think it's still a grow up. Think that former grow-op is a deal? think again.

Until recently there was no way to find out if a property had been a grow op or former drug lab. But the RCMP has introduced a national website that lists addresses where drug lab and grow op busts took place. It also tells how many marijuana plants were found on the property or what kind of drug was being manufactured. Each listing is on the site for a year.
