See all the damage illegal marijuana causes our nation?

Don't destroy America.

Preserve it, for our children.

Return freedom and liberty to the U.S.A.

Call or write your Congressman and tell them to end the destructive prohibition of marijuana.

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Cagey B: Illegal marijuana grows have been known to be causing extensive environmental damage for some time now.

If people don't want weed to wreck the environment, obviously they can simply choose to buy organic weed, perhaps certified through an independent company, the same way Fair Trade is. We don't need more government regulation - the Free Market (peace be upon it) will sort this out.


Or they can just legalize it so that people don't have to hide their grow ops.

Crazy Lee: Repo Man: AbuHashish: I expect to see many more articles voicing concern over legal marijuana in the months to come. Cartels in Colorado mentioned in Drudge today with no stated evidence and rants about weed falling into the hands of children because legal, etc. It's clear there's still a vocal fear mongering opposition. The law narrowly passed in Washington and only a few counties are on board.

Ok. What has any of that to do with TFA?

TFA:  "The problem is we have wild rodents out here that are going to eat the rat poisons, and then they become little time bombs,"

So, dopers kill any wildlife that eat the poisoned rodents.  The horror!  `Marijuana is THE gateway drug'.  Failing to mention the fact that it is the exposure of any tender little procurer, in search of weed, to the black market of substances that is the only `gateway' involved never crosses the mind of the `concerned'.  Taxpayers are actually the only guilty actors (fund the war - eat the dead wildlife).  Meth heads have dumped their `cook' leftovers in our woods (piles of 5 gal. buckets - some always seem to leak).  If I had my druthers, anyone over 21 could buy dexedrine/benzedrine OTC at just enough above cost so as to fund eventual treatment of those who want it and to lock up anyone (any substance) who interferes with the life/liberty of another citizen for a mandatory minimum.  Have a care for one's own `temperance'.

/every old line of bullshiat will be dusted off, draped over the MSM and drug out along the dead-cat-walk over the coming months




The damage done by these gardens is not hyperbole.

Butte County Supervisor Bill Connelly, a conservative who describes himself as "definitely not an environmentalist," shares this belief. He contends that ramping up the war on pot because of trespass grows will ultimately fail to either eradicate the farms or protect Mother Nature. As a result, he's calling for the legalization of marijuana nationwide, joining a cadre of unlikely advocates on the right, including current Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey.

They poisoned the guy's dog. All he was doing was trying to look out for the welfare of the wildlife in the area.

I'm sorry, but I can't white-knight the growers.

Just start planting in the Appalachians... The damage done by the cannabis growers will just mix in with the spills from the energy companies.

It's part of the remains from a raid last summer. A law enforcement team swooped in by helicopter and found 8,000 marijuana plants here, all between 3 feet and 6 feet tall, as well as lots of leftover rat poison and empty poison containers - trash left by the growers. (Most of the plants were hauled away, but some of the poison got left behind.)

Wow, I'm glad they got the REAL poison out of there!

More like poison is poisoning wildlife.
