'Grow houses' may soon be on the market

For sale: County must decide what to do with the residences seized in marijuana busts.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 

ATLANTA, Ga. - The comfortable two-story house for sale on Waterstone Drive in Lawrenceville featured a lake view, two-car garage and more weed in the basement than you might find at a rap concert.

At least it did until cops busted the marijuana growing operation there a couple weeks ago. The marijuana cultivation ring --- 17 houses and counting this year in Gwinnett County alone --- have no precedent for sophistication or scale here.

And now, on top of the prosecutions and ongoing criminal investigation, Gwinnett authorities have another novel problem --- how to dispose of all the houses it expects to seize through criminal forfeiture rules.
