Poisons on public lands put wildlife at risk
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Researchers discovered commercial rodenticide in dead fishers in Humboldt County near Redwood National Park and in the southern Sierra Nevada in and around Yosemite National Park. The study, published July 13 in the journal PLoS ONE, says illegal marijuana farms are a likely source. Some marijuana growers apply the poisons to deter a wide range of animals from encroaching on their crops.

Fishers in California, Oregon and Washington have been declared a candidate species for listing under the federal Endangered Species Act.

Fishers, a member of the weasel family, likely become exposed to the rat poison when eating ...

I'm all for legalizing pot so all these morons will start growing their "crops" on their own land.... it's really getting ridiculous and that's not even factoring in all the people we've put behind bars for smoking dope and the lost revenue from not being able to add a sales tax to any of the transactions. I know... I know.... I'm probably the "odd man" out thinking like this but liquor creates far more problems than pot does and it's legal.

Amen to all that you say. In addition, the hemp plant is magnifecently beneficial for food, rope, paper, biofuel, clothes, containers, and many other uses. Our antiquated corporate backed anti-hemp laws are moronic. Indeed, the

The THC level in commercail hemp is miniscule. One would have to eat a twenty foot rope before any mind altering effect would be realized, and by then the devourer of the rope would be long dead. LOL

There's money in drug control, and there's money in selling illicit substances. There's also money in substituting for hemp with less effective materials. For instance, the best quality paper in the world is made from hemp, and it is inexpensive to manufacture. But, in the U.S., it cannot be made. Also, hemp seed is teeming with protein and is always organic and hormone free, unlike beef and other animal forms providing the bulk of people's protein.

Ignorance must truly be bliss, as I am anything but happy with every new bit of environmental and food policy law I learn of...
