Last year Las Vegas Metro Police busted 119 marijuana grow houses in Las Vegas.  So far this year they've busteed 88 such operations.  That's an increase of fifty-three percent over the same period last year.  Grow operations are popping up in the least likely of places.  Sometimes in upper middle class neighborhoods in foreclosed homes; sometimes in shops and office spaces.   We talk to Metro about this growing problem and how residents can help.  We also look at how these operations are able to pop up almost anywhere.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
