Illegal pot farms in Calif..
« on: April 01, 2015, 03:43:28 PM »
Heard a interesting item on talk radio today about all the pot farms illegally growing in this state. They said the growers use 23% of the natural water from the creeks and streams that they tap into to water their marijuana... I know Inyo and Mono County have had some huge illegal grow sites the last few years where the have stolen our precious water from the creeks to water their crops to keep the pot heads happy... The largest crop ever in Calif. was about 5-6 years ago where the were growing 250,000 plants and stealing water from Georges Creek..

Yeah, I went to see a talk about this at Grizzly Creek along the Van Duzen River in Humboldt by some guys from DFG. That's the agency that is really going after these morons because of the destruction they're causing to local watersheds. Not only are the growers using a lot of the water and destroying watersheds that way, they're finding spots with great natural soil and basically pillaging entire mountains to grow their crop. DFG is pissed because they're affecting many different species of animals besides the obvious fish. The poisons used to protect their crops are killing deer and many other mammals. 

Check out the video below to see what's really going on up here...
