Canadian marijuana grow ops head south to cheap houses

grow opBecause of lower property prices and the easing of U.S. marijuana laws a RCMP report reveals that many organized crime groups involved in marijuana grow ops are moving from Canada to the United States. According to the report, the U.S. housing crash has enticed many Vietnamese organized crime groups to move their marijuana growing operations south of the border where the lower cost of real estate allows them to operate a more profitable enterprise. They can also avoid police/customs detection at the border the RCMP report states.
