POT OR HEMP? NYPD BUST HIGHLIGHTS A GROWING DRUG CONFUSION
Two of the Mexican nationals and the alleged cartel members were arrested in September during a raid on an illegal marijuana operation hidden beneath the thick tree canopies in California’s Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The authorities have to find 8,656 for the cultivation of the marijuana plant, and the 232 pounds of processed marijuana, a Monterey, Calif.’s KQMS have been reported.
Approximately 3,000 pounds of trash, including discarded clothing, propane tanks, and brought in cans of insecticide, in addition to the three miles of plastic irrigation pipes, and open bags of fertilizer were also found at the site, which suggests that the operation had been in use for years, National Public Radio reported.
“The real crime here is the fact that they’re dead, basically, America’s public lands, the killing of the animal, it is dead in the water,” Kevin Mayer, a U. s. Forest Service, law enforcement assistant special agent-in-charge, told NPR. “This is the stuff that, you know, it’s not going to repair itself.”
Although the California and the national parks have been plagued with illegal pot-growing operations in the past, some of which are operated by the hippies for the actions of the cartel are generally larger-scale, well-organized, and the use of serious illegal toxic substances, should be more watchful to protect their cash crops from rodents and insects.
Wildlife ecologist Greta Wengert, who was called in to survey the operation, and after the September raid, told NPR she found a liter of concentrated carbofuran at the site. Carbofuran has been banned by the us environmental protection agency, European Union, Canada, and Brazil, for all legal intents and purposes. It is manufactured in the USA by Pennsylvania-based FMC Corp. (a). and is then exported to Mexico, India and many other countries.

“It’s incredibly toxic,” Wengert told NPR. “A quarter of a teaspoon could kill a 600-pound black bear. So, of course, only a small amount of it can kill a human being. It will remain in the ecosystem for a long period of time.”
They said that they would have been detected with this deadly toxic substances contained in the cannabis plant, endemic, vegetation, water, and infrastructure. Exposure to these chemicals can prove to be fatal for humans and animals alike. A California coalition of environmental activists, law enforcement agents, politicians, and nature, ecologists, and members of the lawful cannabis industry, have joined forces to clean up the pollution caused by the illegal activities of the cartel, according to NPR.
