If you were really doing something illegal, would you be doing it outside?
most of the time
Before I started brewing, I had a neighbor that was super friendly and seemingly a good parent. I thought it a bit suspicious that he had so many late evening visitors, but I was trusting. I always thought it odd that I could smell a bleach like smell outside. After living next to him for 3 years, the cops paid him a visit one day. They hauled him off for making and selling meth. He'd been hiding his "hobby" in broad daylight for years, apparently making it in his garage. People get comfortable doing their thing, whether legal or not.
