Pot growers just paint a big red bulls-eye on their place of operation.
If my neighbor buys a 60" flat screen it makes it more likely for my home to be invaded. Doesn't mean he did anything wrong.

I'd do nothing, as long as his/her agricultural activities did not disrupt the neighborhood.

No it doesn't. Buying a flat screen isn't illegal. But if growing weed is illegal where you live, your neighbors could have a valid concern.

If it were for personal purposes I'd view it as similar to a home brewery or grew his own tobacco. If he went 'commercial' with it, then my position would be the same as if he went with a commercial brewery: a commercial operation in a residential district is prohibited. I'd approach him and tell him what he was doing before (personal purposes) is fine but expanded it (for commercial purposes) is not.

I wouldn't care about the marijuana itself. My concern would be related to the whole "drug trade" part of the business. I wouldn't want someone pulling a drive-by on my house by mistake when the intended target was the neighbor.

Doesn't matter how much they are growing, there is no way I would tell anybody.

I might ask to help them taste test the crop.

Agreed, i think it should be voted on by the individual states and the fed should get out of it. I'm not pro pot, but i dont think people should be in prison for habitual use. (I dont know of any but i'm sure they are there)

None of the choices, I'd offer to take care of the dear little things when my neighbor
has to go out of town!

Bake them a cake, offer them a Budweiser, and welcome them to the neighborhood.

I doubt that anyone has been shot in a drive by over a handful of pot plants.
