    I used to work for somebody else, and we used to mow this nice house. Every once in awhile, we'd come around back to mow and the kids would be out there smoking the "wacky tabbacy". It wasnt really a house that they sold drugs out of, but their kids seemed to like the weed i think. Sometimes we'd come around and there would be a cloud of smoke but nobody around (probably ran inside).

    WOJO, durng the evening news tonight, I saw the report of that drug bust. I have never serviced a drug house, a few years ago a realtor offer me 7 houses controlled by the U.S. Marshalls in Portsmouth, after surveying the locations, I quickly passed on those jobs .

    I've had one.......always a viper, escalade, and a benz in the driveway. He was a cool guy.....HUGE....and he had a hot wife, but anyways, I also did his neighbor's house. What was funny is she was an FBI agent and she told me about them. Late one night they packed up and left......end of that customer.

    Used to mow a rental house. Tenants would put their baby pot plants on the back porch to sun bathe. I don't know if you call this a "drug house". Maybe just recreational users. Don't be surprised if this thread gets moved or removed.

    No, but when I was younger and just getting into Insurance & financial consulting I worked as a career agent for a "home service" life insurance company. Early on I was transferred to an account where I was expected to collect life insurance premiums on the "corner". I didn't mind it much though. I never had a problem collecting the premiums from those guys compaired to others on the account. What a PITA job.

    Looking back thoug, I'm glad the police new my business in that area. Otherwise I could have easily been arrested. I'm glad I was able to get away from that and become sucessfull.

    Nope, can't say I've ever mowed a house. But the backpack blower comes in real handy for dusting!
