The famous TN marijuana cave is being sold on auction. The 2 mile cave will be split between two potential buyers with the buyer who gets the entrance having access to only 360 feet of the cave and the other buyer with the 1.5 acre tract of land getting the cave below the surface but having no entrance to it. How do you enforce your neighbor from staying out from under your property when you cannot even get to it?!
Everyday several visitors come to Reality Me to read about the cave because periodically it hits the news again. I had some thoughts on the cave. And the original reference. Need a secret passage?
Update: Wisconsin cheesemaker to make curd instead of cannabis as noted by Michael Silence.
So in Nashville, this guy had a secret passage from his garage that was hydrolically sealed to a cave under his house complete with a Hogan’s Heroes style escape hatch that came up under a rock.. You know, I wouldn’t want to get busted for the plants but I’d love the hidden access to a cave! How do these people get busted anyway? I guess maybe they were doing surveillance on the house and the guy gophered out his backyard.
This is how they grow it in Tennessee . This grow was underneath a
house in a cave. The entrance was through a secret hydraulic door in the
garage that led to a concrete ramp that went about 50 yards into the
ground. Inside the cave was living quarters and a secret escape hatch that
led you through a tunnel that exited via another hydraulic door that
opened up a rock on the outside. It was very elaborate. The set up
allowed them to harvest every 60 days which resulted in multi-million
dollar sales. One of the guys busted was living in a house on the water
in FL and had a nice yacht.
One of the agents here in Nashville worked on this for 5 years
before the warrant was finally served in December.
