    Only joking!! I'd better get that bit in before I get annihilated by a bunch of crazed feminists baying for my blood!! lol.
    Biggest mistake ever made was letting women wear shoes, allowing them to learn to read too ...

    I've spent around £50 so far on the materials to make my grow box. The actual box is made and lined with reflective coated ThermaWrap, I've just got to put the door on and install the electrics, lights, extraction etc. I wasn't planning on spending any more than another £100-£150 more really, exculding seeds.

I just exhaust into the loft space the filtered air is clean and odour free so it isn't an issue.
    Seeing as I've only got a small grow box at the moment, I'm not sure if the fan you're using is going to be too powerfull or not. If it's too powerful is it not going to be sucking the heat out of the box quicker than the air inside the box can get warm again?

    I'm planning on using CFL lights for my first couple of grows to cut my teeth on anyway so I don't think I'm going to be dealing with vast amounts of heat. I have two chimney stacks going up through my loft, one is for our working fireplace, the other is redundant. I might just get everything set up and let it run for a day or two so I can assess how much heat my box is producing. If it's not much I'll most likely just vent into the loft space, if there's a bit of heat there I may consider making a hole in the chimney stack to feed my exhaust into.

    My landlord wouldn't know of the hole in the chimney stack - when we viewed the house I asked her what was up in the loft, she said she's never been up there since she bought the place - I doubt she's going to do a spot check on the loft. When we move out I'll just patch the hole up with a couple of bricks and some cement.

    I think you might be talking about the US there?

    In the UK there's no chance of losing your kids from a discreet little grow-room if everything else is fine.

    Keeno lists the CPS sentencing guidelines:

    http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/s_to_u/s...n_of_cannabis/

    Basically there are four categories (C1 the most major through C4 the least), and three roles (leading, significant, lesser).

    Category 4 is "purely domestic" (up to nine plants) and the Lesser role "If own operation, solely for own use". Aggravating factors are potential supply, weapons, previous convictions; migration includes good character, first offence, good character. Sentence reduction includes being cooperative, guilty plea.

    For a Category 4 Lesser role the starting point is a Band C fine.

    I had a read of that the other day mate - did kind of take the edge off of my worries.

    Paying a fine or anything like that doesn't bother me, it's purely the thought of social services being involved in my daughters life that bothers me.

    Everything else is in check - house is clean and tidy, I smoke outside away from my daughter, she's well looked after, I've not criminal record, myself and my partner both have decent jobs etc. so if the sh*t did hit the fan I don't think anything major would come of it.

    I'm going to go for it anyway, hoping to get my grow under way within the next couple of weeks - just got to get my grow box finished off with the electrics etc.

    Yeah, basically don't be a smart arse. Nobody else gets some, not even free to mates. Be very sorry. Apologetic. Nothing like scales or baggies in the house. Dispose of any evidence of previous grows.

    A small amount of personal well away from kids is nothing. They even try to keep kids with proper junkies and alcoholics, with the FGM choppers, etc.

    What I grow is going to be mine and noone elses! lol. I might let the missus partake, if she behaves!

    I must admit it is difficult keeping it from people, especially very close friends - but it's an absolute must to not risk getting caught.

    Yeah, and even a caution will show up on a CRB report.

    That's dead right, the Children Act, in SECTION 1 (I think from memory) it says that the interests of the child is paramount. It is rarely in the interests of the child to separated from their parents. As stonedwolf says a little bit of weed kept well apart from the kids is nothing in comparison to things others do and have done and kept their children.

    Oh right then I would use a large say 120mm silent pc fan and one of those activated carbon foam filters used in cooker hoods you would need a 12v power supply though and it should work OK they are cheap enough. And if activated carbon foam can handle the smell of cat piss a cannabis plant should pose no difficulty's at all. I say plant 'cos you aren't gonna get more then one in your grow space.

    Hi just thought I'd share my experience. .. I was busted 4 weeks ago with 7 plants, social services did get involved, never have been before I have a 4 year old daughter. .. they looked at my daughters room etc, had a statement from police stating clean house, clothes , food in all cupboards and lots of toys TV etc in daughters room. I'm due in court in 2 weeks to see what happens to me. The social have said they are not the cannabis police , they are just there to see the child is OK and that she isn't affected by any goings on , they asked my daughter a few questions like where does she go if she has a problem, her reply was 'but I don't have a problem' lol so that seemed to sum that up... they haven't since been in contact, they said they will once a verdict is in as to what will happen to myself, but that they don't want to hang around if they don't have to, she basically said you don't want us in your hair as I said do what you must come over everyday as I have nothing to hide ... so they will most likely get involved if worse came to worse but If family life is perfect and child is happy there is no need to worry to much. Obviously there will always be an element of worry for all whose kids are there life. One thing I would say though if you plan to grow make sure all electrical are safe and electric paid for etc, I had a letter confirming my electrical were 100% safe so if I ever came Into any issues concerning my daughter they can see I didn't put her in danger. Hope this helps in any way. Good luck
