I'm sure your sensational articles about marijuana grow-rooms will sell 
lots of papers, but I think you've been receiving lots of bogus 
information. As a former grow-op gardener, since retired, I have had a 
dozen grow rooms in my time, and not one had any trace of mould. The key is 
to provide proper ventilation, so the air never becomes too humid. Do you 
suppose everyone with a sauna, or two or more bathrooms has a mould 
problem? Of course not! The homes are properly designed to eliminate the 
extra humidity. It's the same with grow rooms. Of course, not everyone will 
take the time to properly construct these rooms, but if all the rooms 
you've seen have had mould, then I suggest they've been done by amateurs. 
This mould nonsense is mostly scare tactics, and unfairly punishes the 
homeowners, not the crooks. I guess the police are running out of ideas. By 
the way, my respiratory health is great, but I'm against decriminalization 
for other reasons.
