David K. is a licensed medical marijuana grower and patient who invested about $4300 in hydroponics equipment and supplies to create his sealed grow room. He grows top-quality medical marijuana such as OG Kush and Silver Haze. He has an automated irrigation and monitoring system that allows him to travel from Southern California to a research hospital in the San Francisco area for medical treatment. When he returned home after getting medical care during a two-day visit, he found his grow room practically empty.
David lost his hydroponics lights, hydroponics digital ballasts, Cool Flame C02 generator, a computer monitor…and his medical marijuana plants. Gone were his OG Kush and Haze mothers, as well as his blooming clones and younger clones. The loss of his hydroponics equipment was bad enough, but the loss of medical marijuana plants he’d nurtured and loved—ones he counted on for medicine and had specially bred himself—that was life-threatening and sad.
I keep hearing these horror stories about rip-offs of hydroponics grow rooms, and that’s why I’m providing you a series of articles to increase your hydroponics security. With premium medicinal cannabis worth $500 an ounce, and hydroponics equipment costing lots of money, it’s no wonder you have to protect your hydroponics grow room, hydroponics equipment and hydroponic medical marijuana plants.
There are many protective measures you can take to protect your hydroponics plants and grow room. Some of them are technological, such as CCTV, stealth alarms and monitoring systems. But many of the standard technological strategies you’d use to increase security in a non-hydroponics situation are less easy to implement when you have a medical marijuana grow room. So let’s start with security techniques that you can do without technology…
The number one hydroponics medical marijuana security technique is for you to not let anybody know you’re growing medical marijuana unless you are absolutely, positively, 100%, rationally and objectively sure that the person can be trusted.
Although some thieves use surveillance and detection techniques similar to what police use so they can recognize a poorly-disguised hydroponics operation from outside the building it’s in, the vast majority of rip-offs come because some untrustworthy person knows about your grow and decides to steal from you.
The less people who know that you grow, and where you grow, the better. Yes it’s hard to refrain from sharing medical marijuana with others. It’s hard to refrain from sharing information or clones with other growers. It’s hard to live a clandestine life as if you have a gold mine inside your home. But the fact is that every person who knows about your medical marijuana plants has information they can use to ruin your life—or at the very least, cost you a lot of money and worry.
Loose links sink ships, and can cost you your hydroponics security and your freedom. Sad to say, the smartest thing to do in situations such as a bitter divorce, break-up, family feud or best friend betrayal is to shut down your hydroponics room and relocate…leaving behind the possible traitor and making sure they never find out your new grow location.
This is not paranoia—this is reality. No matter the medical marijuana laws where you live, you have to live smart and stealthy if you’re going to grow medical marijuana. In future articles we’ll talk about more ways to secure your hydroponics equipment and medical marijuana plants. But you can start right now implementing the advice I just gave you: make sure that nobody knows you grow medical marijuana unless you are certain that the people who do know have to know, and would NEVER rob you, snitch you, or otherwise harm you with that information. If you are not certain about that, then you need move to a new hydroponics growing location. Better safe than sorry!
