    Hey folks.

    Please bear with me while I step up to the soap box for a moment.

    I just read this article, and it seriously made me livid...

    Please, please, please, PLEASE read this, and have a little chit-chat with anyone you may know who is contributing to the outrageous rape of our planet. We're all here because we love our herbs, but this shit's gotta stop... It just makes me sick to my stomach when I think about it.

    I realize I'm (at least mostly) preaching to the choir here in the organic section, but I've gotta start somewhere. I'd love all the help I can get spreading this message to the folks who need to hear it...

    While I agree with you 100%, we can't in good conscience say that the government is forcing us to polute the environment. It just ain't true. There are many farmers who go about their (illegal) business in an ethically and environmentally sound manor. How do we expect to convince people it should be legal to grow pot when this is the public view of what pot growing involves!

    fucking shameful.......people nationwide should be able to grow their own meds....all of this bullshit could easily be avoided.....anytime a black market for anything is created, lives, land, economies, and environments get destroyed.

    As someone born and raised in California, it really sucks to see this happen to some of our most beautiful watersheds... All so that some dried up plant parts can be smuggled to other states and sold for a profit... It's just absurd.

    If state law and federal law were the same then there might be people that would start monitoring the all mmj market seriously. Still i'd like to believe people are putting forward those cases to discredit the community, Monsanto is not the only company that's fucking up the world...

    ...for these folks, its all about profit. Fuck the animals. Fuck the rivers. Fuck the environment... It just gos to show that just because your a pro-marijuana, doesnt mean to have half a brain. Doesnt mean you actually give any more of a fuck then the corrupt bitches in washington. And the sad part is, they already know what they're doing. They know, and its ok, because they get paid. Theres no talking more sense into these people then the mighty dollar does...

    I love everyone... but sometimes its hard not to loose just a little more faith in humanity. :cuss:

    There was a good documentary on CNBC the other night called Marijuana Inc and they talked a bit on the subject of large outdoor marijuana grows and how they affect the environment, I'd check it out if you haven't saw it

    Kinda I guess, a lot of it is about Mendocino county and they interview that guy from Oaksterdam University. Its only a hour long, if you get a chance you should check it out

    Easy solution that will lead to faster legalization
    make marijuana
    legal to possess and grow
    illegal to sell

    I have my flame suit on from the onslaught of cash croppers that what I just posted will anger
