Grow op shows the need for individual metering

Next time you meet an environmentalist potsmoker ask them where the energy came from for their pot. It's becoming clear that eliminating grow-ops such as this one and the 1,000 watt incandescent lights used for growth would save more energy in Toronto than all those CFL bulbs (and dodgy LED christmas lights) Toronto Hydro are giving out. Apparently apartment blocks are popular with growers because power is part of the rent rather than being individually charged and thus disproportionately high bills being easy to spot.

I don't actually have a problem with pot being legalised but growing pot in an old apartment block while rewriting in dodgy manner likely to cause fire, not to mention taxes having to be paid to relocate innocent co-residents - well, that's just uncool man...
