Greetings War Room Sherbros, Welcome to the next installment of the Presidential sticky-threads. This time let's cover an important aspect of the green revolution (a.k.a. legalizing weed). As a longtime proponent of ending prohibition, I'll admit to never giving any real thought to the associated environmental concerns. There seems to be three main components. One is the damage done by illegal grow sites, another is the gross inefficiency of indoor cultivation, and the third is the sheer size of the industry. While there are many, here's two articles dealing with the subject. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-marijuana-environment-idUSKCN1BJ13W http://www.geocurrents.info/place/n...struction-marijuana-cultivation-united-states It's clear to me that it's time for federal change, since the best way to combat poor practices is to pass legislation that allows for regulation. Not to mention how criminality drives growers indoors. Clearly the users are not showing any environmental concerns when selecting which product to purchase. Maybe an ad campaign within the industry would help? We also need prices to be lower than what the black market will provide, so as to drive people to outlets dealing in responsibly grown marijuana. Not sure if that's a tax-holiday or capping profit-margins. What do you think? When it comes to this subject, does protecting the environment shift your view? If so, what should be done? Cheers, Cubo PS. Due to unforeseen time constraints, the remaining threads will be up for one week instead of two. ***This is an ongoing series of sticky-threads that will take on various topics in varying ways. If you're interested in leading a discussion on something please take a look at this thread and then send me a PM with your ideas. POTWR 2019 Vol 1: Shots Fired!
