Federal Bill Would Up Penalties for Marijuana ‘Trespass Grows’

July 20th

WASHINGTON, DC — A bill introduced Thursday by Congressman Jared Huffman (D-CA) and bipartisan cosponsors from California and Colorado would create new penalties for marijuana growers who grow on federal lands or who trespass on other people’s property to grow and who cause environmental damages.

“Trespass grows” are a tempting alternative for growers who seek to avoid having their own properties seized under federal drug asset forfeiture laws.

Growing marijuana on federal lands — or anywhere else, for that matter — is already against federal law, but the cutely-acronymed Protecting Lands Against Narcotics Trafficking (PLANT) Act would instruct the US Sentencing Commission to establish new penalties for “trespass grows.”

The bill identified three environmental concerns: the illegal use of pesticides, rodenticides, or high-grade fertilizers; the “substantial” pilfering of water from local aquifers, and “significant” removal of timber or other vegetation.

Pressed by law enforcement, marijuana growers have increasingly moved onto federal parks and forests, as well as private properties. Last year, in the national forests alone, eradicators cut down nearly a million plants.

Officials and landowners accuse growers of leveling hilltops, starting landslides on erosion-prone hillsides, diverting and damming creeks and streams, and using large amounts of pesticides to protect their crops.

Washington State Moving Towards Allowing Outdoor Marijuana Cultivation

June 21st

OLYMPIA, WA – The regulatory board overseeing marijuana legalization in Washington State is leaning toward allowing licensed growers to cultivate marijuana outdoors, citing the much higher carbon footprint of indoor and greenhouse cultivation, board members said.

The view, which all three members of the Washington State Liquor Control Board told Reuters they shared, represents a reversal from the draft retail marijuana industry rules the body issued last month.

Indoor marijuana grows have a higher carbon footprint, even in hydro-electric powered Oregon.

“If they can provide the security parameters that we require for indoor or greenhouse, if they can provide for that outdoors, then it’s OK with me,” board member Ruthann Kurose said, after a public meeting on Wednesday.

Washington and Colorado became the first U.S. states to legalize recreational pot after approval by voters last November, although the use and sale of marijuana remains. . . . . READ MORE
