This puzzles me. How can marijuana growers be bad people?

That's why both babies and baskets should be outlawed.

Firm Tautology: Wait until they hear about almonds and rice.


And Nestle.
And the McMansion owners in Beverly Hills with lawns measured in acreage.

Seriously, grow operations are like the least of California's water drainages. Pun intended.

Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel believes there are hundreds of illegal grows in his southern Oregon county alone, many financed by overseas money.

Using a country bumpkin-level understanding of international financing, a bit of cop math, and a dash of regular ol' fashioned racism, he was able to figure out all of this information on his own. I guess the the only way to take down this gigantic swath of criminal criminals is a raise in pay and a bunch of unsupervised overtime. Please consider watching their recruitment music video for more information.

I compromise by growing acres of weed at my Beverly Hills mansion.

Silly drug addicts.  Everyone knows that only the Nestle corporation is permitted to steal your water.

Our milkshakes?  But what of the boys in the yard?

If only there were an entire midwest where it could simply join the ranks of the staple crops grown with abundant water sources, and only one minor executive order or senate vote needed to make that happen....

And now what are you going to do about cottonmouth? Clearly you guys didn't think this through.

I understand the Vegas casino water features all recycle their water. (So I heard on an Indicator podcast, assuring me they're not nearly as problematic as the golf courses and suburban lawns out there.)

How can Jesus lovers diddle kids so often?
See, we all have questions to ask...

The legal stuff I can buy is far superior to any from an illegal dirt weed farm. Sure it costs a little more, but I know what I'm getting, and the convenience of it can't be beat. In fact my weed consumption went down, because the dispensary has the good stuff, so it lasts a lot longer.

Actually, even recycling loses about 1/3 to dehydration so must be replaced. Also, I live in Monterey-farking-county which has 21- 21! -farking golf course. In just this county! But let's blame it on the growers...

"Yet, water activists often criticize the Bellagio for this man-made lake because it loses nearly 12 million gallons of water per year due to evaporation."

But yeah, the golf courses are much worse. The Wynn golf course uses 100 million a year in comparison.

It would seem that you have never grown.
Nothing beats the sun, and BT is a great way to practically eliminate caterpillars. The rest get eaten by birds.

Ehh - numbers are probably cop math, but other than that he ain't wrong

Not so long ago weed was illegal but water was plentiful, now weed is legal and there's no water. Coincidence? You decide, after you smoke some weed, no need to rush to a decision.

Drove through Selma last week, still plenty of grows along 199 from what my nose was telling me. Planned on camping on the Illinois River, but with super low flows and air smokey from all the fires, ended up staying in a motel. Wonder if the guy in article is the same one selling "cron" lol

RogueWallEnthusiast: Anyone else watch Murder Mountain?


Wife grew up there. Parents were growers. Sadly the grow operation supported other habits and both parents are gone now. Property left to youngest child with 90K lien.

Mrs TUFA kept laughing when we watched Murder Mountain because she was fairly certain the closest Netflix got was the Eel River bridge outside town, and that one person interviewed was known for telling tales and spreading rumors.

I've only been up there twice but my opinion is that it's no more dangerous than other parts of Humboldt County where there's lots of grows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Last six years of so "Bulgarians" are the new bogeyman seems....

Which brings us to vampires.  Know why there's no vampires?  Because enough holy water has been mixed into regular water that now all water is holy water.  That's why the Fright Night sequel is set in Vegas.  As long as he stays away from the Bellagio and the golf courses, he's totally safe.

It's OK for bootleg weed growers to divert water and eph up the environment because Nestle and golf courses and almond farmers! Don't mess with my weed, man!

The Bend area has experienced a population boom, putting more demands on the water supply. The illegal grows are making things worse.


1000 words about the illegal farms, one sentence wiping out their argument.
