I just received an email from Architectural Record. The top headline was: "420 Reasons your Grow House Needs Better Security". Based upon a documentary that I viewed last night, I can name more than a few.
Can you believe that one can now get AIA HSW credits for learning how to design a secure cannabis grown house? I guess learning the technical aspects might be safer than hiring the Cartel as a consultant. They might not like the competition. I do not believe that the profession should be directly or indirectly facilitating recreational drug use any more than we should be supporting the tobacco industry.

I am breathlessly awaiting the first design awards for the most sustainable and secure cannabis grow house.........................on a parallel note, I have yet to see an award winning design or an article on best practices for the design of a brothel!. Although, I understand that prostitution is legal in certain parts of the country as well. I personally don't see the design of either type of facility as "taking up the challenge". Just because something is legal does not mean it is either desirable or ethical. Cheers!
