That's three in about 6 months in Bushey, and none of the addresses they were in are cheap to buy or rent. Somebody is making a LOT of money out of this, obviously.

But no doubt as it is a cannabis story people will come out the woodwork and say what a fine job these people do providing a medicine to the sick, and a harmless bit of pleasure to anyone else who uses.

A house in Chiltern would be around £1,800 pcm plus fees. It couldn't be a flat, too easily noticed. So let's say £22,000 a year. The renter would not live there, they never do, so they must have a property of their own.
It would make no sense to rent an expensive place and live in a cheaper one, so we might assume their personal property rent* is £30,000 per annum. So that is £52,000 a year JUST on rent.
Add to that everything else in life one has to pay for like food and cars, plus 'minders' to tend the plants in the factory. OK, they usually steal the electricity, but there is still transport and distribution, setting up costs (I hear those lamps and ventilators aren't cheap) and a million other bits and bobs.

These guys must be in the millionaire bracket, illegally and tax free. It makes politicians look honest, and the people who defend the drug growers look like fools with their 'public service' arguments.

*Many gangsters rent rather than buy, it can muddy the paper trail that bit more.
