The precise same angle on the War on Drugs appealed to ABC's Jim Avila (subscription required) and NBC's Peter Alexander. Alexander traveled to Diamond Bar in Los Angeles County to show us "one of those sleepy all-American suburbs perfect for raising a family" while Avila showed us "upstairs in this big house in a low-crime suburban neighborhood" in San Bernardino County. Both residences were converted to indoor hydroponic marijuana farms with elaborate irrigation systems, racking up $4,000-per-month electric bills for grow-lights. Avila called the drug houses "hidden in plain sight, marijuana McMansions." So how do suburbanites know what is growing in their neighbors' potted plants? Alexander answered for NBC's In Depth: "The folks next door never seem to be home--and a strong skunk-like odor."
