Homes for Mary Jane in Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee Counties

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports on grow houses:

As housing prices fall along Florida's Gulf Coast, suburbs like Lehigh Acres, North Port and Port Charlotte have become a haven for "grow houses" where high-grade marijuana is cultivated and harvested.

While the Herald-Tribune prefers to attribute much of this booming new "grass roots industry" to lower echelon bedroom communities like Port Charlotte, Sarasota County's own code enforcement officers say they're finding the Mary Jane Subdivisions among some of the high end housing in Venice and Sarasota.

Amazing how often the SH_T has to go outside of its prime circulation area to cover stories that can be found on its own doorstep.

The new Real Estate Boom appears to be a hit in Port St. Lucie as well, according to the DEA.
