CAN (ON): Police monitoring marijuana grow-op at former flowers greenhouse

Waterloo Regional Police say they're monitoring a large marijuana grow-op at the former Waterloo Flowers greenhouse site — and believe it's operating within the law for medical marijuana for "personal consumption."

The site isn't owned by one of the 28-federally-licensed producers in Ontario that supply's Canada's mail-order medical marijuana, and its less-than-discreet cannabis production beside a busy Highway 7 has prompted rampant speculation among neighbours.

But police say they believe the former greenhouse and garden centre is growing marijuana for personal use under Canada's evolving medical marijuana rules — a system that allows a person to grow up to 244 plants at a time.

Those same rules also allow a so-called "home grower" to have as much as 10-kilograms of dried medical marijuana at any time.

The owner of the former greenhouse, however, has been less than upfront about what he's doing. A numbered company registered in Toronto bought the site in December for $1.35-million.
