Continuing the discussion from Obama’s Department of Justice says marijuana as dangerous as heroin:
I find indoor growers are the worst offenders. Spraying outlawed pesticides and systemics. Pyretherins are neurotoxic. I know because I’ve worked with them, spraying scale in Colorado. They cause numbness, hallucinations, and migraines. Very toxic stuff. What happens when this stuff seeps into trichromes and becomes a part of their cellular structure? Not to mention, indoor environments are much more toxic than outdoor environments. Outgasing of building materials, toxic molds, mites… I find it difficult to justify the use of resources to grow plants under a bulb. It works out to about 6 lbs of coal just to produce an 1/8th of weed. That’s for the shortest flowering indoor strains. And it only accounts for the lighting load. It doesn’t account for the nutrients or the other equipment or repair costs to water and mold damaged properties. Don’t get me wrong. I love marijuana. I suffer from sciatica. It helps me. But I don’t agree with the methods most growers use to produce it.
