Humboldt marijuana farm diverted creek, killed fish


Let’s legalize marijuana which will, among other things, put an end to the environmental damage done by growers now.

Charges for alleged water diversions, oil pollution and marijuana cultivation along a creek in the Mattole River watershed are being sought against four Ettersberg residents, authorities said Wednesday.

This farm was relatively small, 1050 plants, $200,000 in cash, and seven guns. Other grows are much larger and the damage they do is much worse. Large amounts of fertilizer and pesticides dumped into streams, trash everywhere, etc.
