they look for lots and lots of concentrated heat like a grow set up then they get a warrent and search the place

they dont just fly around looking for possible grow rooms.
i wouldnt be the least bit surprized if they did....
but yeah, even if they see heat coming from your house,, that probably isnt gonna be enough to get them a warrant... and if it does it wont hold up in court... i recall some guy getting the charges dropped because the police used a heat gun and found lights in his attic, then busted his grow... its a violation of some ammendment...
+ thats why alaska kicks so much ass... i think theres something called "right to privacy" up there... so basicially if your growing a few plants in the privacy of your own home, thats your buisness and the police dont have the right to bust you... although that sounds too good to be true so im probably wrong...

"good morning sir, i've seen a big heat spot in your house..

No, i dont.. it's just my electric radiator.."

As for heat/light/smell detectors, I agree that IMHO it's just the heat that is picked up. Besides, it's more lucrative in the UK for them to sit on the side of the road nicking speding motorists....

Thank you, someone else who actuly knows what they are talking about.
Marijuana, like anything else, gives off vibrations and waves. These waves can be picked up by sensors. I think marijuana looks white or lighter in color on the sensors monitor. They have been known to be on helicopters, but I think than can do it only if they have a warrant????

What the fuck? They blow a shitload of our tax money on police helicopters (plus gas, maintainence, etc.), and then use them just to look for weed grow ops? Maybe the police wouldn't have to bitch about being "underfunded" all the time if they used some common sense to manage their resources.
i friggin love this one! haha. i totally agree. and its hilarious at the same time.

thats bullshit about the indoor thing with a heat seeking camera... think about all the shit in ur house that gives off heat, stoves, heaters, tv's lightbulbs. And that would be so illegal, it would be like an unwarrented search
It's not bullshit. It's true. And common house hold items don't put off as much heat as a large grow. Many of the things you mentioned don't put off much heat at all, let alone for long periods of time. IR camera's are most likely not going to pick up on small grows. But it will detect grows that take up entire rooms. It may be illegal but it still happens in many cases. If someone is doing an big enough grow to be taking up an entire room they should be using precautions. If they don't, that's their own fault if they get caught. Legal or not, police can and will use infrared technology to find grows.

intresting links Mustard....thanks for the read.....thank god i dont live in the states......lol...laters.
Well, like the article said, a lot of U.S. Law Enforement tactics are being used by Canadian Law Enforcement. I don't know where you live, but it's obvious U.S. influences are spreading. Especially when it comes to the drug war. It's been happening for years. It seems that Big Brother is growing. You don't only have to worry about LEO now days, but in Canada especially with the large scale Medical Grows getting ripped off is becoming more common.
