63. Another argument FOR LEGALIZATION......

 

Lets get something staright right now. In CA it takes 7 MILLION plants (at the bare minimum) to supply one years worth of demand.

As long as it is illegal you will have this going on. We were going in the direction of legalization here, with large grows proposed for cities blessing. Oakland and Isleton approved large warehouse grows. Farmers in the Sacramento delta were turning to growing for the dispensaries. Large farms were beginning to pop up.

Then October 2011 hit and DOJ started shutting it all down. And insuring that stuff like this will continue. These are people, that due to the illegality, have to hide and the only place to do that is in the thick forest. Most, but not all, of these types of grows are run by hired hands who are illegals. And they have no concern for the environment or any of that, all they care about is doing their job. They grow crap too. These guys are part of the worldwide crime cartel and by keeping it illegal only keeps them in business.

Ask yourself this, would you rther see this, or large farms, using drip systems, saving water, growing organically?

Most of the growers I know are not at all like that. They grow organic (Again a certification and testing industry was starting in CA until Oct) and own the property they grow on. They also know that 20 plants will net them enough to get through the year.
