Man Fined $5,200 for Growing Cucumbers in Basement

Mission, British Columbia, resident Len Gratto recently experienced the wrath of local city officials who fined him $5,200 for growing cucumbers in his basement. Under current laws, municipal regulators are permitted to enter premises on suspicion that a homeowner is illegally growing marijuana -- and even if no pot is found, they can levy the fines anyway.

"It's upsetting they can do this," explained Gratto to The Province. "We were growing cucumbers in the basement because they wouldn't take outside".'

  1. So, because you grow your plants indoors, it means that you are growing marijuana in the house?

    I thought they had more sense in British Columbia, obviously not.

    You have searched the premises and found nothing, therefore that should be the end of the story.

    wow, there are just so many stupid people in power now. More power than actual sense.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
