All indications are an initiative to legalize marijuana will go to the California voters in the fall of 2016. CalTrout is working ahead of this initiative to guide water-management regulation of this booming agricultural sector.
As such, we support Assemblyman Jim Wood’s (D-Healdsburg) bill, AB 243 that addresses the environmental problems created by medical marijuana farms. For more about the bill, read Assemblyman Wood’s Op-Ed in the Sacramento Bee.
For nearly 20 years, we have allowed the medical marijuana industry to go largely unregulated. We have kicked the can down the road for too long. We must act now to protect the environment and protect our water for future generations.
