Expel all carbon filter and ozone-treated air via a roof vent or chimney to minimize ground-level fragrances. Treat air with a deodorizer or filter that traps odors before evacuating. See “Fragrance” in Chapter ??? Air for a complete rundown on deodorizers and air filters. Check with a qualified professional when installing a ceiling vent or when venting out chimney to ensure safety. See “Setting Up the Vent Fan” in Chapter ???
Do not let garden room air-conditioner water expelled from sealed rooms drain outdoors; it smells like cannabis and could draw cannabis/catnip-loving felines, drug-sniffing dogs and other pests.
Surround garden property with a bed of fragrant cedar shavings or chips in the flowerbeds. Few flowers have such pungent odors during the fall and we have no examples of fragrant flowers to mask the fragrance of flowering cannabis.
Greenhouse fans are equipped with louvers (flaps or baffles) to prevent back-drafts. During cold and hot weather, undesirable back-drafts could alter the climate in the room and usher in a menagerie of pests and diseases. Installing a vent fan with louvers eliminates back-drafts, but may present a security risk.
Law enforcement in some jurisdictions collects information via hear-say evidence, trash, surveillance records, etc. – to obtain a “warrant” to search the premises of medical cannabis gardeners. If law enforcement discovers a cannabis garden, they can legally continue to build the case against the gardener by using anything the gardener says. They legally collect most of the information from the gardener, friends and family. Do not be the weakest link in the chain.

Keep electrical use to a reasonable amount for your home and neighborhood. And, above all do not steal electricity. See sections on Electrical Safety, Electric Consumption, Conserve Electricity and Smart Meters in Chapter ???, Lights, Lamps and Electricity for more information on these subjects.

Internet traffic is so dense that it is virtually impossible to monitor or investigate “perceived” crimes. Arresting medical cannabis gardeners that post photographs and text on the internet is beyond means of law enforcement to police. They are overwhelmed with budget cuts and controlling violent criminals, property theft, policing traffic, helping citizens in need, etc.
What is true today can easily change tomorrow on the world-wide web and iPads, iPhones, androids, etc. Smart medical cannabis gardeners can easily have several levels of security. Personal privacy and preservation of your sanctuary are of utmost importance when communicating with other cannabis sites including activist, cultivation and nostalgia sites and social networks.
Cell telephones record their location and time with an internal GPS, even when turned off??? The locations of gardens photographed and videoed with cell phones are able to be pinpointed. Removing the battery from cell phones is a simple way to avoid tracking when traveling to secure locations.
Facebook and other traceable photos of your cannabis garden should not be posted if you are concerned about crop theft. Be careful if your employer frowns upon medical cannabis cultivation. Everybody in the world has access to your “private” Facebook information. Strangers can access it from any cell phone or computer.
Many sites about security are on the internet. Type “proxy server” or ‘internet anonymity” into www.google.com to find simple easy ways to conceal your internet identity from unsavory types.
Keep your computer secure from criminal and government snoops. Check the sites http://www.pgp.com/www.pgpi.org/prod...ions/freeware/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenPGP#OpenPGP and search for “proxy server” at www.google.com for more information about Internet security.
There must be more sites about proxy servers and also things that I forgot to add about fragrance. But, there is also quite a bit about fragrance in the "Air" chapter too. Either way, please do not hesitate to add as much as you want in the comments section below.
