<<<<The carbon footprint of producing 2.2 pounds of marijuana indoors, one study says, is equivalent to driving across country seven times. Yet almost no one is pushing for cleaner sun-grown weed as state officials make rules for legal growing operations.

Marijuana growing is not a green industry.

Done mostly indoors in Washington, pot production often uses hospital-intensity lamps, air conditioning, dehumidifiers, fans and carbon-dioxide generators to stimulate plants and boost their potency.


I would suppose that most of those who are advocates of legalized marijuana also want to avoid more CO2 production.

But marijuama advocates in Washington State seem perfectly happy to be promoting an INDOOR pot growing industry that uses lots of electricity, rather than organic outdoor farming methods.

Now why is that, do you suppose?

Suddenly not concerned about organic farming, minimizing C02 production and such?
