    Police Bust Doral Grow House in Subdivision

    Police busted a grow house on Friday night in a subdivision of Doral, with marijuana plants that had an estimated street value of about $130,000.

    Authorities said they do have persons of interest but so far no arrests have been made.

    Neighbors said the plants smelled even outside the home.

    [MI] Fort Lauderdale Lawyer Leading Fight To Reform Marijuana Laws
    Fort Lauderdale attorney Norman Kent, the head of NORML, says his fight to change marijuana laws began in 1971 at Hofstra University. Irvin Rosenfeld, 60, a stockbroker in Fort Lauderdale, is one of only four people in the country who receives medicinal marijuana directly from the U.S. government.

    Authorities said it was not a sophistated operation.  There were exposed wires and leaking pipes. Plants were growing and also drying for sale, police said.

    But neighbors said they would see people coming by a few times a week in the evening hours.

    "I am super surprised. I have three little kids and they play around all day and they ride their bikes. It's shocking how they have been exposed or at risk of being exposed to such a horrible thing," said neighbor Claudia Chin.

    Police had gotten anonymous calls complaining about the smell coming from the house.
