SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —A medical marijuana grower said his home alarm company of three years dropped him after a repairman saw his grow inside his house.
"I still want to call the governor,” said the homeowner, who didn't want to reveal his identity. “If this company doesn’t want to recognize our state laws, then maybe we shouldn’t license them (in California)."
The homeowner is an AIDS patient who said he grows the marijuana legally for himself and more than a dozen other patients.
He said his alarm company, ADT, doesn’t service homes with medical marijuana grows because of federal laws.
“It’s like one more time state laws are just ignored, and that's not right,” said the man.
KCRA 3 contacted ADT about its company policy for California homes that have a legal medical marijuana grow inside.
The company emailed the following response through spokeswoman Sarah Cohn: “As a matter of policy, ADT does not provide services to medical marijuana dispensaries even in states where they are legal under state law because they are still illegal under federal law.”
KCRA 3 contacted many local alarm companies who said they have no problem protecting homes with medical marijuana grows, but they also understand why a national company may choose not to.
The medical marijuana patient whose contract was canceled fears he will now have to spend hundreds of dollars to have another alarm installed, when his current alarm only needed to be fixed.
