Tamer Salloum, owner of Speedpro High Performance, says he’s being smoked out of his auto repair shop by the medicinal marijuana grow-op next door following a flood that damaged the wall between the two businesses. The smell of marijuana has wafted into his shop, which he says has cost him the business of some customers who thought he and his employees were smoking pot.
Surrey business owner Tamer Salloum has had it with the legal medical marijuana grow-op next door to his auto repair shop after a recent flood caused by the grow-op damaged his business and his reputation.
Last December, Salloum, who owns Speedpro High Performance, was told by his landlord that a cabinet manufacturer was moving into the neighbouring unit of his business complex, but something just didn’t smell right.
“I noticed that they were building these greenhouses inside the units,” said Salloum. “Right away, I knew it was a grow-op.”
