Marijuana Hydroponics Lab Discovered In Miami Home

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade Police have raided and shut down an underground hydroponics laboratory that was so hazardous that detectives say it could have triggered an underground explosion in a Southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood.

Three people including the homeowner have been arrested on charges including trafficking in marijuana at the home on Southwest 301st Street near the Florida Turnpike.

“This is terrible,” said neighbor Nico Meseses. “This was right next to my door.”

His wife Aurea Meseses told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench, “It’s terrible because kids live around here.”

“It’s scary,” said neighbor Teresa Gomez. “I am freaked out.”

“It makes us not want to live here anymore,” said another neighbor Nicole Danford. “It makes us feel unstable and unsafe.”

Police also released dramatic video from their narcotics bureau showing how the lab had an open hatch leading to an underground crawl space and 82 marijuana plants worth $144,000.

For 11 years, Scott Houck has taught at Thomas Jefferson High School. He was highly regarded and taught tech classes.

However, the 41-year-old is accused of growing and selling marijuana out of his South Park home.

“It’s very disappointing to think that we have a teacher that might be involved in such type of activities,” said West Jefferson Hill Superintendent Michael Panza.

Officials started investigating Hope last summer. His front door shows marks, where it appears a DEA agent may have kicked in the door when they visited his house last Friday.

“Anytime teachers are involved in any type of activities such as this, it’s … very, very disappointing,” Panza said. “Teachers are supposed to be…

Obama says marijuana ‘no more dangerous than alcohol’

WASHINGTON — Marijuana, which is still placed in the same category as heroin, ecstasy and psychedelic mushrooms by the federal government, is no more dangerous than alcohol, President Barack Obama said in an interview published Sunday.

Speaking to New Yorker editor David Remnick, Obama said he still viewed pot smoking negatively – but that on the whole, the drug wasn’t the social ill that it’s been viewed as in the past.

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” Obama told the weekly magazine.

The president said pot was actually less dangerous that alcohol “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

“It’s not…
