Recent study findings suggest that although the effect of large-scale cannabis farms on the environment is well-known, the impact of illegal cannabis farms takes an even harder toll.
According to Inverse nature reporter Tara Yarlagadda, these particular farms, without proper regulations, “ruin the wildlife and habitat” of their surroundings.
Executive director of the Integral Ecology Research Center and co-author of a new scientific paper on the subject, Greta Wengert, had this to say on the matter, “A huge majority of cannabis farms in California are still illegal and non-permitted.”
“All trespass-grows on public lands and large tracts of privately owned ranches and timberlands will always be illegal — and deleterious to our environment,” she continued.
America’s ecosystems and wildlife already have various threats posed against them, and now thanks to cartel farmers and their pesticides, our nature and natural habits see other struggles.
As Wengert mentioned, we’re only going to see an expansion in illegal cannabis farms as the legalization for medicinal and recreational use increases.
A simple breakthrough that's changing lives.
At least one of the gals is taking advantage of recreational cannabis.
