Marijuana, Killing California! - Roger Morgan
Roger Morgan tells this story at Townhall.com:
"Marijuana consumes an average of 6 gallons of water per plant per day. Naturally, they need more water during the summer dry months, whereas 90 to 95% of California rainfall occurs in the winter months. So at a time when stream flows are at their lowest, particularly during the drought, the enormous influx of pot cultivators are diverting water, which in many cases exceeds 100% of the capacity of the streams. The result is an ecological disaster for everything down stream, including amphibian species, reptiles, birds, mammals and aquatic species. Many of these are already sensitive and declining."
