Consider This Before Renting a Home With a Marijuana Grow Operation

I took a continuing education class last week about Mold, Meth & Marijuana, and I learned something important to share with landlords faced with renting to a tenant who will be growing marijuana. 

According to the instructor, should the Trump administration decide to enforce federal anti-marijuana laws, and should there be a raid on your property with a grow operation, your home could be confiscated unless you successfully claim no knowledge of the operation. It’s called the “innocent owner defense.”  If you have an additional provision in your lease allowing the operation, your opportunity to utilize that defense goes up in… smoke!
