The environmental devastation from marijuana grows is more severe than anyone could have imagined. Sadly it's also happening on private land in Calaveras County. This is a very serious problem and health concern because of the type and amounts of herbicides and pesticides that are being used at these sites. The contamination continues with little to no oversight or control on our private lands leaving neighbors exposed to a potentially serious health risk.

Marijuana's Ecological Impact video shows some of the reasons why the Calaveras County BAN on COMMERCIAL marijuana cultivation is so important for public and environmental safety! There are many serious unintended consequences of attempting to regulate pot and this video shows some of them including the supporting evidence.
We must warn you there are some disturbing graphic scenes which may not be suitable for all audiences.
"....Each time a policy comes in place we get a green rush. People capitalizing on the lack of enforcement, the lack of government oversight on this market. They overwhelm. They saturate and they overwhelm." Dr. Mourad Gabriel. (Marijuana's Ecological Impact, YouTube, 10/1/2018, No Weed Illinois)
WHY DO WE NEED TO BAN COMMERCIAL MARIJUANA OPERATIONS?
