grow-op

noun; blending and clipping
an area or space in which marijuana is grown in significant quantities with the mutual consent and support of multiple parties; sometimes used in a humorous context to describe an apartment complex with a large number of tenants who use and/or grow marijuana
 
"Listen, it's not my fault that you live in a f**king grow-op"
Etymology : One possibility is that the neologism is a clipping of the term "grow-operation" referring to the production of the illicit substance in question. Because of its common use in referring to apartment complexes and other places of residence by groups of people, the word may also have been a play on the term "co-op", itself a clipping and blend of "cooperatively owned residence." The strength of this possibility is enhanced by the fact that the two terms rhyme with each other.
