Um....not that I know of, if it does then BARELY. So if they do then it wouldn't be enough to effect anything, so it shouldn't matter anyway. I just dont know how they would send off heat?

PS: If you do grow we have a wonderful grow section on the site. We could help you along and before growing I would give aread through a few journals/threads. You'll regret it if you dont get a little info first! Good luck

Cannabis does NOT produce heat waves. Police used to be able to use infrared cameras mounted on helicopters to fly over and detect "hot spots" in houses for possible pot gardens. However, the heat being detected is created by the lights used for growing and not by the plants themselves. A fairly recent ruling by the supreme court ruled that this type of search constituted illegal search and seizure and effectively put an end to these operations.

Using all this information it is easy to see why your cousin may have drawn the conclusion that the plants produce heat, which is clearly not the case.

What was ruled as illegal search and seizure in the USA was deemed NOT to be in Canada I guess. Go figure.

"Infrared thermal imaging Camera Ruled NOT An Invasion of Privacy in Canada "

Fact is people make wild assumptions all the time. Because they hear police are using Infrared to detect growing cannabis in houses they then make the assumption that cannabis transmits heat, which it does not.
