The deceptive Tennessee pot cave

The deceptive Tennessee pot cave It was an innocent-looking A-frame house.


In 2005, an illegal marijuana grow operation was discovered inside a cave underneath a house in Tennessee after the utility company discovered the house was stealing electricity. The mastermind and marijuana farm managers were arrested and convicted. Later, the A-frame house and another nearby home were destroyed by arson. The pot cave and property were auctioned by the state and purchased by a Wisconsin-based cheese maker.

This reminds me of a Prohibition-era speakeasy, but without the tuxedos and jazz band.
