Although California legalized the cultivation and sale of recreational cannabis, illegal marijuana farming continues in the state’s federal and state parks. These grow sites use rodenticide, a type of pesticide, that harms local wildlife. Putting their safety at risk, a team of biologists and law enforcement are pushing to dismantle these unauthorized weed grow sites found in California’s forests.

  1. I'm sober enough 7 months from 2 years of marijuana addiction to know that cannabis is not worth the destruction of entire ecosystems.

  2. Maybe they should actually legalize it so theres no such thing as an illegal grow and no need to do it out on the forest…

  3. You mean the excessive taxation of recreational marijuana didn't eliminate the black market??? Puahahaha. GOOD. Hopefully this will teach the government not to be so damned greedy.

  4. I'm from this area and illegal grows are harming so many things. A lot to them dump waste containing pesticides and other such things into the creeks and rivers, affecting our salmon population greatly. There have been several illegal grows with 100 or so deer carcasses piled up because the growers poached them to protect their plants. They leave insane piles of trash on the sites where they're growing that affect the surrounding ecosystem, and so many more things. They also pose a threat to any humans on that public land. I hunt, and I dont know anyone with private property that will let me hint their land, so I hunt on public land. I have accidentally stumbled upon an illegal grow and had a gun pointed at my face while threats against my life were being thrown at me. It's a very scary situation to be in, and I'm not the only one who has had that happen either.

  5. i call bs on all of this it looked like dirt weed contaminated by the forest and starving, and no prof of pesticides pink water was found not tested, could easily hav been booster and ph balance plant food . im glad alaska dose it right ,ish by letting us grow ouw own
