Unsustainable, unecological, and unnecessary cultivation in energy-hog greenhouses

Ecologically destructive practices and mistaken views about climate change are rife among the Cannabis tribe, and frankly that’s on all our heads.

Ceaseless preaching about the virtues of hemp has meant too little awareness that most commercial pot production right now is apocalyptic in its destruction of our children’s futures.

Hemp is not a fig leaf with which to cover the fact that the pot industry is complicit in rendering the planet a living hell for future generations.

Crucial reading for everyone involved in the Cannabis industry is Ernest Small’s paper Marijuana – unsustainable, unecological and unnecessary cultivation in energy-hog greenhouses.

The new era of legalization needs to start out on the right foot. That means good people need to start taking action.

If we want to see a world defined by common sense and basic decency, we need to start creating it.

I tend to agree with the sentiment here, I was hoping to see him expand more on a solution though.

I absolutely agree with the sentiment that asks us to guard our environment. However, Real Seed Co. effectively says nothing here and I'll assume the purpose was to get us to read Mr. Ernest Smalls 18 page paper. Same sentiment in the paper, and I agree with it, but I felt that we, as growers, were getting chucked under the bus a bit. Most of us use electricity :)

I agree sentiment wise but think that there should be some association made with the fact that it's illegal to grow and that illegality's effect on ecological practices. Seems his greenhouse and guerilla grow examples, don't take into account that there's a legal pressure to not get arrested.

I think we should be as ecological as practical.

Decimalization at the National and Global level would be helpful to all.
Wouldn't it be great if Cannabis was treated exactly like tomatoes?
