Skip to comments.Officials: Mexican Pot Growers Are Polluting American Wilderness
Posted on 10/12/2008 1:15:41 PM PDT by metmom
PORTERVILLE, Calif. National forests and parks long popular with Mexican marijuana-growing cartels have become home to some of the most polluted pockets of wilderness in America because of the toxic chemicals needed to eke lucrative harvests from rocky mountainsides, federal officials said.
The grow sites have taken hold from the West Coast's Cascade Mountains, as well as on federal lands in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.

In a related note....snack food sales are breaking records.
Could this have some connection with the deliberate failure to guard our border?
Because everybody knows they fertilize pot with dioxin, the blood of children and used 90 weight gear oil.
I’m betting the toxic pollution is a trash dump and this article is just the usual BS.
Sad to say, this is more likely to get people’s attention and get some to demand border control that the cost in human lives from crime. Or the cost to society for the drain the illegals are on our society and economy.
A) contributing to the murderous Mexican mafia, CERTAINLY a grand organization of brotherly love
B) supporting the grand scale rape of our environment through our natural parks, streams, animals, and resources
C) smoking not just his "natural weed" but also the strongest pesticides Mexico can make, straight into his lungs and bloodstream, lowering his life expectancy by 25-30 years
so you are an apologist for the Mexican mafia gangs running their operations through our forests?
Somehow, I don’t think the environmentalists will really give a hoot about this one.
I don’t see their proof that it’s Mexicans growing all this pot. All they offer up in the article is that chemicals long-banned in the U.S. have been found at the grow sites. I don’t know anything about local pot growers in California, but I do know that locals in TN, Ky, and WV have been growing pot in national parks since before there was such a thing as a national park.
Not saying it’s OK, but that’s how it is.
“Mexican cartels...pesticide...national parks.”
Again, I can’t stress this enough people.
Grow your own—or buy Canadian pot.
I think you hit it on the nail.
What are people crop-dusting pot fields in National Parks?
Of course not.
More B.S. propaganda from the Jihad on drugs.
DNC: "As long as they aren't EVIL American corporations let it ride then, we're busy saving an ice wilderness from legitimate and legal energy explorers."
Funny how Mexican alcohol distillers and tobacco farmers aren’t polluting the forest. Pot prohibition is a failure.
Then make it legal. Problem solved.
Nope, they want their money's worth out of their PAC's.
As a cultivator/teadumping/criminal I can tell you...
If you can’t get your own (thanks Unky Scam) buy Canadian...or from friends.
There are plenty of good God-fearing folk who grow weed in this country.
This is Drug Jihadist propaganda. Pure and simple.
Your well isn't very deep is it.
“Your well isn’t very deep is it?”
And neither is your statement.
