Miami Lawmakers Want Landlords to Watch for Tenant Drug Dens

You might be used to your landlord hassling you about messy pets or damage to his property, but now he might also be narcing on you.

Miami lawmakers have drafted a half-baked resolution that would require landlords to inspect properties every 60 days to look for marijuana plants and drug labs.

Citing the explosive danger of meth labs and the seedy element that hangs out around weed growing houses, the Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners wants owners to keep a close eye on their tenants.

The Board is also worried about the electrical skills of certain potheads. 

"Marijuana grow houses pose fire risks due to extensive electrical rewiring and the use of hot grow lamps," the resolution states. 

So it sounds like drug-dealing tenants should make sure their landlord is a customer.
