Mmm. You might want to be careful, though: I've heard some interesting
rumours about the police confiscating indoor growing equipment from
marijuana growers, selling it off at a police auction, then making sure they
have the address of the buyer. Six months later, a little visit to check
that the buyer isn't using the gear for the original purpose - and if they
are, bust the buyer, confiscate the gear, start again.
All just rumour, of course. But as long as you're not growing anything
(blatantly) illegal, you can indeed pick up some bargains at police
