Got Marijuana? Make it Organic

It’s no secret that growing marijuana is big business, big money, and rapidly expanding across the country. But do you know that guerilla marijuana growers are illegally clearing forests, damming and dewatering streams, and using toxic pesticides that pollute waterways, impact salmon, and kill wildlife? Legal medical and recreational marijuana is not being evaluated for inhalation, ingestion, and absorption exposures to the unregulated pesticides that may be used to grow it. Join us for an enlightening conversation about what’s at stake and what government, businesses, and the public interest community are doing to forge organic and ecologically regenerative systems of marijuana production.
