Two years ago, one of the buildings in our little industrial park was sold to a "plumbing supply outfit". Its 3 story at about 15k' per floor. I never saw any activity there and we were all a bit suspicious, one of the guys said he thought they were growing pot in there and he could smell it on occasion, but they paid their share of the common bills. The SWAT team shows up this morning and finds 2,000 pot plants being guarded by...AN 8' ALLIGATOR!!! We got to take a tour of the hydroponics facility and got to see the gator. Cops said the value was over 2 million. No media was present so I wonder if it will hit the papers. Now I need a new neighbor to help pay the bills.
Years ago, I had the idea of converting my spare building into growing Morel Mushrooms but it seems they can't be domesticated. I thought about pot but even I have more smarts than that.
