How To Grow Marijuana Without Getting Caught

growing marijuana bustedWhat are the risks of growing marijuana

Growing marijuana comes with a few of attendant risks. There is always the threat from law enforcement (depending on your location), but thieves also present a problem, especially for outdoor growers. For the most part, getting caught with a small number of plants won’t land you in too much trouble. For instance, I was forced to do 240 hours of community service after law enforcement found 900 plants in an enormous hangar in Amsterdam. If you only have 10 or so, then you may just get off with a warning or fine (although your plants will be confiscated).

If you don’t want to get caught, try these things:

1. Do NOT talk to anyone about it

More often than not, people get caught simply because they like to talk about growing marijuana. Keeping your mouth shut isn’t easy, especially when you’re so enthusiastic about and proud of your progress. If you tell one person, then you’ve practically told all their friends, too. Before too long, everyone knows you’re growing weed.

If that’s the case, then someone who doesn’t like you might hear the news. It’s very easy for someone to call the police and snitch on you. Even your good friends can become your enemies and give you away to the cops. It’s better to just not trust anyone and keep your weed growing hobby to yourself.

2. Keep the smell contained

The odor of marijuana is very specific and every strain is pretty pungent. Many people are “outed” because of the smell, but it doesn’t have to be a problem. For indoor growers, it’s important to grow in a sealed space. Don’t let the breeze carry the marijuana odor throughout your entire apartment block.

If you’re growing a lot of plants using HPS bulbs, it’s important to use an exhaust fan that has a carbon filter. The fan will essentially filter out all the weed scents and only allow clean, filtered air to get outside the room. The exhaust fan is also perfect for removing hot air in a grow room so that the temperatures won’t get out of hand.

Outdoor growers have to worry about the weather and the directions of the wind, but it’s not difficult to plan for that. You can even make a greenhouse or grow your plants under a shed. For those growing in forests or cornfields, keep your plants away from hiking trails, recreation areas, or places that are frequented by humans. As soon as the flowering stage hits, the plants will start to smell. The first few months should be odorless, though.

3. Maintain a low profile

Try your best to keep prying eyes away from what you’re doing. If you’re growing inside your home, then you’ll need to carry in pots, soil bags, light bulbs, and other material to construct your grow room. When you bring stuff in, don’t look suspicious. Keep the soil bags in cardboard boxes if possible. When building your grow room, keep the noise to a minimum. Try not to attract any attention to your behavior at all.

If you’re growing outside on land other than your own, then try not to get into a routine. Don’t go to your garden at the same time every single day. Scout out a location prior to growing so you know how busy it is at different times of the day. Use a backpack or other non-suspicious bag to carry your supplies (don’t use a black sport bag that resembles a body bag). You should also blend in, especially if you’re visiting your plants at night. For instance, I like to walk my dog every night and people likely think I’m just out walking my dogs. Your reason for being outside could be for running, mountain biking, or hiking. Dress the part.

It’s general, all of this is rather simple, but you just have to think about it. Following these rules and using common sense will usually keep you from getting caught.

    Attention to anyone growing in the US in a state without a medical marijuana program. Growing even 1 seedling is cultivation and manufacturing, if you have scales and baggies the local DA will try to convict you for intent to distribute. Please be aware of this. Other things to consider if growing indoors is being busted because of your power bill, todays smart meters relay your power consumption from every 15 minutes to several times daily. Your local power company is looking for power consumption that falls in line with a marijuana grow, like 18/6 and 12/12 that happens like clockwork. Power companies report this information to local police which in turn obtain a search warrant. Insulating your room to prevent detection on a heat signature is also important, a dead air space around the room is important, never have a room without it.

      2 timed light areas would be better – 12/12 for 2 areas offsetting each other – one in darkness, the other in daylight. A third on 24 if you want a mother. LED’s or CFL’s help keep the electrical footprint small. Only grow for your own personal needs keeps it small too.

      • Nuganoid

        Running any hps 27/7 will create a red flag, unless you substitute something like a plasma tv which is around 400 watts or better yet a pc also around 400 watts, not many things run 24/7 in a home that have a constant power draw.

        • 2buds4me

          My 2 servers don’t count?

          • Nuganoid

            Anything you can substitute will work, just be aware and do so research on smart meters, ohio and other states have used them to secure many search warrants

          • 2buds4me

            With running less than 200w LED’s I’ll never be the “low hanging fruit” like the guys running rooms or houses full of HPS. They will always be the primary targets of investigation. I’m simply not interesting enough. No smart meters in my neck of the woods yet either. I sure don’t like the idea of a smart meter – my usage data collected for years – scrutinized and crunched by various NSA apps determining my lifestyle, eating, sleeping, sex life habits and bowel movements. Cross referenced with the data freely provided by my ISP they will hopefully come to the conclusion I lead a very boring if not pathetic life and it would be embarrassing for them to use their considerable resources and skills to come after me.

    dont go to your spot with your phone on. a cellphone is just a computer,which in reality, is just an overgrown calculator. point is, it can be hacked by ANYONE with intermediate hacking/programming skill(not just nsa), and to further the problem, manufacturers have been in collusion with the govt. to design phones with hardware that makes it harder to defeat the spyware every phone comes with.notice how u cant removethe battery on newer phones.

    WTA “mod” any comment you don’t agree with?

    • All people commenting as guest need to be approved. No censorship here.

  • “Don’t tell, don’t smell, don’t sell.”

  • Confused

    WTF! I tried to make good comment about this story and I it said it had to be moderated. Was this spammers comment moderated? So much for moderation, still the same insulting spam here instead of smokers and their comments

    • guest

      happened to me yesterday on this article. i wonder about TWB and their intentions.

      • Our intentions were to eliminate spam. I set it so that anyone who commented under the name “guest” had to be approved to see if it helped eliminate the spam. I’m on the road for work so I didn’t see your comment until I got to my motel last night. I changed it back to the original setting last night. Sorry for the problem.

  • has anyone from the usa ever got seeds from here??

  • guest

    actually, my comments from yesterday are there,upon scrolling down.

  • guest

    if your comments are getting “auto modded”, tap “edit” then “save edit” and it should come up.

    • For now no “auto modding” lol. I might turn them on again if I know I will be away from my pc for more then a couple hours, just to keep the spam tamed. If you create an account on Disqus (not TWB) your comments should go through if auto modding is on. I’ll try to keep it to a minimum tho.
