What To Do About Indoor Grows
Everybody's talking about the problems with indoor pot grows, especially in Arcata. I can understand the concern, but I don't know that zoning laws are going to help that much, if at all.
Our very own, Ed Denson, made some suggestions and observations. He might be right with some of those.
Seems to me the only thing the landlords can do to protect themselves, as far as here and now, is to be sure they have something in their rental contract that allows them to make a monthly inspection of the entire premises before they allow a tenant to rent the property.
And after they've rented the property, INSPECT IT! I don't know that they need to schedule their inspection for the first of each month.
Then again, heck, why not? If a tenant/ grower knew the landlord would be coming by to walk through their house on a certain day each month, they wouldn't have enough time for pot to grow.
I know that's easier said than done and most landlords don't have the time or desire to do inspections each month, but makes sense to me. Seems like about the only thing they can do to protect their property at this point.
