I'm using a wok outdoors, so I guess I'm worse than pot.

Indoor Weed Farms Are Hotboxing the Planet

Sure. And the weed is also causing your children to murder their friends, etc etc.

The place Mrs. Falfa goes to grows all their own product 100% outdoors.

Gotta feed the puritanical need for vilifying vices somehow, I guess.

Shrooms require much less energy to produce than weed. Do the green thing and legalize them.

Wow. The anti pot morons will try ANYTHING to take a swipe at weed.

Sure all kinds of fruits and vegetables are grown indoors but WEED IS DESTROYING THE PLANET!!!!!! ZOMG!!1!!1!!!!

" "If indoor cannabis cultivation were to be fully converted to outdoor production, these preliminary estimates show that the state of Colorado, for example, would see a reduction of more than 1.3% in the state's annual [greenhouse gas] emissions," "

One point three percent.  And have growers revenue crippled by having to adhere to Nature's growing season.  It's not going to happen.

Why are they not suggesting the growers implement carbon offsets such as covering their warehouse operations with solar panels and sticking up a few residential grade windmills?

Why are you bundling *those* two together?  One is quite natural while the other is fresh evil soaked in pointless.

^F seeds ^F sensimilla - nothing found

If someone can figure out how to protect outdoor female plants from pollen coming from male plants 2 miles away then more people would grow outdoors.

My jazz-cabbage consumption is higher than my oregano consumption, but a lot lower than my consumption of non-jazz cabbage or only-visually-psychoactive flowers.  Probably lower than my greenhouse-tomato consumption, though that probably varies more seasonally than I realize.

Because both of them are being dissed for their unnecessary energy consumption.
- Weed, because as discussed, it's being grown inside under lights when it could be grown out in the sunshine.
- Bitcoins, because not only are they expensive Beanie Babies, but also they're using proof-of-work algorithms that can encourage high-concentration ASIC mining farms and not widely-distributed CPU-only ones, and because most of the lighter-energy-consumption coin algorithms are either legitimately interesting coins that aren't the market leaders (or else are junk coins designed only to enrich the issuer), and there's no clear path to migrating Bitcoin to a lower-energy algorithm (they had enough trouble just with block size changes.)

I didn't have any issues, but I had two plants that were long growers and had to come inside about a week or so before harvest.
Of course it hermied but I've only found about 8 seeds so far out of...2 ounces?
Nice stuff. Smells like kerosene growing  honey when it's cured.

They're both grown indoors in energy-intensive warehouse operations and siphon real productivity from society?

We should be comparing not the mass of final product consumed, but the mass of plant grown.  With non-jazz cabbage you come close to consuming the entire plant, tomatoes less but probably more than jazz-cabbage.  Is oregano grown in hothouses?

Last time I grew outdoors I didn't get 1 seed out of 6 plants. Pollination wasn't a problem for me but I think more hemp production might be a problem down the road. It probably already is in some places.

Bugs were my problem.

Cannabis pollen in the air from hemp farms makes growing a commercial amount of sensimilla near impossible.

Funny but it's against my personal interests to acknowledge it. I guess I'm a Republican about getting high. *tokes*

It was my first grow and other than running out of warm weather, I had no problems. I do have a green thumb and I consider luck to be a factor. Worst thing I saw was a little powdery mildew on some lower leaves but that was easy to control.

Just like beer, amiright?

What you shiftless jazz cabbage fans fail to realize is that the stuff is more dangerous than plutonium biscuits and therefore must be locked away in high security warehouses lest it escape and menace innocents.

Also, growing in greenhouses under natural light can deal with the males pollinating the girls problem.  But remember, plutonium biscuits, people. Beware!

I wonder if these good meaning people stopped to think about all the electricity required to host that dumpster of a website and calculate their model. How many pounds of give a shiat does that leave us?

The industrial farming that strips land of its fertility and lets it blow away, the chemicals that soak into our food and the land, the genetically-altered crops, the species-killing farming methods, and the roided up industrial animal ranching is the best we can do, and a miracle of our ingenuity. But that pot farming has got to go. It attracts the fringe crowd.

I'm thinking about planting weed as an ornamental to attract wildlife. 6 afghan trees would bring all the animals to the yard.

Y'know what would have made a better article?

Comparing the carbon footprint of indoor weed farms to...let's say whisky distilleries or beer breweries.

Maybe even to hydroponic farming.

Give us a bit of a reference here, authors

And cryptocurrencies actually do add a farkton of pointless energy usage problems.  It's just a bunch of math running 24/7 producing no actual value to civilization beyond enabling some dude to say 'I'm rich, biatch'.
