I'm pretty sure this has been done before but things change all the time so let's shine some light (pun intended) on the subject once more for all the new growers. Actually, I'm wondering about some of the possibilities myself. so here we go...………… 1) First off is a No Brainer.....Keep your mouth shut & never tell anyone & that means ANYONE !!! 2) This one I wonder about.... The websites you visit should be non - tracking websites....or....you can download a secure browser like DuckDuckGo.com to keep your privacy private. I don't know if the police search the websites for this but the cop shows I watch track down sex offenders that way so why wouldn't you think they track down growers that way also ? 3) Another one I'm wondering about.... The sudden difference in Electric Consumption. Do electric companies tip off the police when they see unusual spikes in your usage ? I personally am comparing last years bills to this years month by month to track the difference. 4) Helicopters / IR & Heat Signatures.... Now I know it's an invasion of privacy & illegal here in the U.S. but they still do it & then find another excuse to get a warrant & raid your home. From what I've read....unless you're running 4 - 5 1000 watt HID lights you don't have much to worry about because Reptiles & Reef Aquariums use lights that will put out the same UV / IR / Heat Signature as a small grow set up. How true this is...I don't really know. You can always buy blocking material but it's expensive if you are running more lights or just to feel more secure about your grow ($110 for a 4' x 40' Roll). 5) Smell & Fan Noise …. info on that is posted everywhere & is another no brainer (Carbon Filter & Duct Muffler). 6) Heavy Traffic …. If you have a lot of traffic coming & going …. well ….you're drawing attention & asking to get busted. (Don't Sell !!!) OK you guys … Any other tips you can give are welcome & I'd love to hear some comments on the things I posted. Maybe I'm paranoid & just think these are some ways of getting caught … but I can't help to think about it some. I'd hate to go to jail...They wont give me No Weed !!!
