the tenant(s) responsible for cannabis growing in this house(as should anyone doing this in their homes), should be blacklisted to all housing associations/council
s/landlords and refused rights to rehoming. There is NO place for anything like this among decent people. People illegally using their residency to grow cannabis often illegally hacking water and electricity supplies for this activity running up huge bills overloading powersupplies and sometimes cause reduction of waterpressure to other residents nearby thru heavy use should have their tenancy terminated with immediate eviction and be charged by the utility companies for the bills run up.
