The Econundrum for Big Marijuana and the “it’s a plant from nature” mindset:
Outdoors cannabis production destroys soils with chemical contamination and is a water hog.
Chemical contamination follows the plant to the consumer.
Smaller and players and the black market will inevitably drift to outdoor production — trying to keep it hidden in remote locations.
Like the leaching of any chemical contamination through an ecosystem — this phenomenon IS man made: an industrial cannabis market.
Indoors, it’s got a huge carbon footprint — an energy AND water hog, and is a very chemical intensive agricultural process, with the same fertilizers and pesticides as are required outdoors. And it becomes even more of a genetically modified commodity hybridized for concentrated THC chemical production in plant form.
There is nothing natural about industrial cannabis production.
It’s a net loser for the environment – indoors or outdoors.
