Illegal marijuana farms ravage America’s national forests

Some of America’s most pristine forests are under assault by illegal marijuana cultivation that is ravaging the environment. Federal narcotics agents destroyed …


  1. “Less a drug war, and more a battle to protect the environment.”

    Okay, that statement may have a token or two of truth, but it is profoundly misleading.

    The wave of Cannabis “legalization” that is beginning to sweep the West, like in Canada and in several US states, is really a form of pseudo-legalization. This is because our governments are trying to regulate the legal Cannabis industry through the lens of the drug war: by adding tiresome regulations to the law – in addition to the necessary ones – in order to continue criminalizing as many users as possible.

    Marc and Jodie Emery have stated very well the shortcomings of the Canadian government’s new Cannabis legalization, in sum, illuminating how the new regulations provide law
    enforcement with even more opportunities to charge users with non-crimes than they had under prohibition, and I think this observation is to be made about the “legalization” happening throughout the
    U. S.

    Legislators MUST learn all that they can about Cannabis before regulating its sale, use, and production, and in order to do this, they have to view the issue through a lens other than that of Richard Nixon.

  2. The legalization of marijuana has created a new and dangerous cartels. They produce a product that contains dangerous pesticides that cause cancer , probably sell to dispensaries.
    But rerouted ground water would make fires 🔥 so there you have it . Wish the DEA would look for illegal farms in southern Oregon as well.

  3. Who are the Criminals? During the 1st Era of Prohibition, making Alcohol Illegal simply created a Black Market for it, which enriched and empowered Organized Crime. This is a product being developed by skilled people looking to engage in Capitalism, and from what I hear about the Irrigation System, that skill is very "high"(lol). This is nonsense. This is criminal, and I don't mean the Marijuana Farmers. The Criminals are the men in this video, and should be arrested by State Police. State Sovereignty should always overrule National Sovereignty. States each have their own unique Cultures, Laws, and general ways of Operation that make them all seem like different Countries rather than subsections of a larger Country. That's why it's called a Union, because they are Independent Entities that are tied together. But when that over-arching system becomes too strong, it undermines those Individual States in ways that hinder operation of State Governments and American Freedom. Gandhi once said that Government is Important, but we should have as little of it as possible.

    "You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."- John Ehrlichman, Former Nixon Domestic Policy Chief.

    This is a nation Divided, not United, and the core reason for that is the disparity between the State and Federal Government. The people enforcing Anti-Marajuana Laws are more of a National Threat than the Black Markets they Create.
