If your neighbor was growing marijuana, what would you do?

Ask him to sport me a few blunts at Christmas.

I would let them do their thing. It's not my job to be the police. Not to mention, I personally think that if adults can smoke nicotine and drink alcohol, they should be able to smoke marijuana too. Total inconsistency in laws if you ask me. Even if they were doing something majorly illegal, I'd rather not get involved. Even if you don't believe in God, I believe in the sentiment behind the saying "Let go, let God."

I agree, but I don't think smoking marijuana is a safety issue. Combined with other things it can become a safety issue. If someone got really stoned and then hopped in the car to drive, then that would be a safety issue and I would tell them to either get a cab/take a bus or let someone else drive. But if they're just smoking themselves or with friends, or even just selling it to other people just to smoke, then I don't see how that interferes with anyone's personal safety.

I'm sure a lot of this has to do with where you live. While my answer might be the same for the most part, depending on where I live will certainly have an affect on how I react to it. Right now, living in Pt Reyes, I would be surprised if NONE of my neighbors are growing pot. I'm sure that it is common out here, and I don't worry, at all about crime or violence related to it. When I lived in Sacramento, or in Richmond, I still wouldn't report the house, but I'd be a little more cautious and pay more attention to what is going on next door. This is because of the closer proximity of the houses and the higher likelihood that nefarious characters would be involved in the operation, of course, the scale of the operation would factor into my concerns as well as the character of the person living there. If it was just a grow house, and no one lived there, I would certainly take measures to secure my doors and windows so that I don't become a victim of someone trying to rip the house off.

By the way, the government's ban on pot and other drugs shows how sorely ineffective the ban has been thru your own awful experiences.
Exactly! Just because drinking and driving is unsafe doesn't mean drinking alone is unsafe. Likewise, just because smoking pot and driving is unsafe doesn't mean that smoking pot alone is.

Unless there was a criminal element coming to the neighborhood because of it, I wouldn't care.

To answer the question, though, I'd probably go make a new friend.

I don't smoke, but hey, sounds like a rad guy. My current neighbors are more the crabby-old-people-that-*****-to-the-landlords-when-the-grass-is-too-long type.
Guess no one's going to be growing pot in your neighborhood. Lol.
