An explosion at a Broward County home Sunday night led firefighters to discover a marijuana grow house inside.
Due to the electrical needs of a grow house, explosions are not uncommon due to faulty wiring.
Cultivating marijuana is a felony in the State of Florida.
A grow house can result in charges such as possession of paraphernalia all the way up to trafficking.
Trafficking in marijuana is - like all trafficking offenses - based on weight. In dealing with the growing of marijuana, trafficking quantity can be determined by the number of plants.
