Marijuana, like most plants, grow best outdoors with plenty of sunshine, but law enforcement efforts have forced users to grow marijuana indoors in containers like this one. If you find plants around your home that look similar to the marijuana plant in the photo, someone in your household is trying to grow their own weed. In most states, the penalties for "manufacturing" marijuana are much more severe that simple possession of marijuana. If you find such a plant, get rid of it immediately and ask questions later.
