Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

Get a high mag telescope, and take a peak at their electricity meter. Those grow lights require a ton of juice to run. Or have your wife bake a cake, then go over and give them the housewarming gift. See if you get anything in return.

Alternatively, could they be making beer/wine/moonshine? Sometimes fermenting mash has a really strong odor if you're doing it in large quantities.

Maybe they'll hand over some loose-leaf decaf green tea!

Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

One year (in a past life) we stuffed a Thanksgiving turkey with some oregano like substance . Talk about a loss of motivation after that meal!

Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

could be pot...could be a skunk


how long have they lived there? if less than 60 days or so, prolly not the pot

most advanced indoor farms have basic equipment (activated carbon, ozone etc) to eliminate odors as they are ventilated out of the grow room to keep temperatures down.

my guess is that if they had enough of the sticky icky to make it stink in ur car, they have an advanced/large setup AND the knowledge on how to hide the smell


i vote skunk

Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

does it matter?

if you could smell the capatlistic (sorry cant spell) pain killers burning would it make a difference?

stop worrying about it, instead teach them to farm and live off the land.

reject career and all its promises

Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

No, no new info. Landlord said he'd deal with it after the the Thanksgiving holidays, but I haven't heard anything.

What argues against actual skunk is that when I went to the door, the smell was coming from inside. I can't imagine living with that smell.

I'm sure I'll find out sometime, but I'm considering it mostly none of my business.

They've lived there about 6 months I'd say. The smell grew gradually, though it was there inside when I went to the door a few weeks after their arrival.

Re: Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

OK, Update.

Landlord called the tenants and scheduled an inspection. After a delay of a few days he inspected the place, and it smelled strongly of cleaning products, but no skunk smell. Tenants said that another neighbor had talked to them about the smell.

My conclusion: there wasn't a major growing operation involved. Maybe a little growing and a lot of using.

Landlord friend was very grateful that I mentioned the potential problem.

... and since they didn't want to share their crop for the rest of their lease, they decided to clean out the evidence.
