Marijuana grow operations and clandestine drug labs for the manufacture of illegal drugs such as methamphetamine and ecstasy are an increasing problem for building landlords. Marijuana grow operations can contaminate buildings with mould growth and pesticide residues; drug labs can leave dangerous and toxic chemical contamination. In both cases these present significant health and safety risks to building occupants.
Several agencies (e.g., building officials, public health, Electrical Safety Authority) may require investigations and remediation. Use of a property for these purposes will also impact future leasing and sales opportunities, potentially impacting property values.
It is important for landlords to understand the potential impacts of these operations and the required steps to clear the property for normal use.
