Northern California Congressmen Introduce Bipartisan Bill To Eradicate Illegal Cannabis Grows On Public Lands

Permalink Report to webmaster

Here’s some legislation we love and hope they can enforce with gusto so that public land isn’t mis-used and polluted by illegal growers….

From the office of Congressman Jared Huffman:

Congressman Jared Huffman (CA-02) issued the following statement after he and Reps. Doug LaMalfa (CA-01), Salud Carbajal (CA-24), Hal Rogers (KY-05), TJ Cox (CA-21), and Doug Lamborn (CO-05) introduced the Protecting Lands Against Narcotics Trafficking (PLANT) Act. This legislation provides resources to help local, state, and federal law enforcement eradicate illegal marijuana grows on public lands and establishes a fund to restore land that has been damaged by illegal cultivation activities.

In 2018, local, state, and federal officials completed a year-long illegal marijuana eradication effort known as Operation Forest Watch. The effort resulted in the seizure of 82 firearms, 638,370 plants, and over 103,603 pounds of trash, pesticides, and chemicals. The most concerning finding was the fact that 89% of sites were confirmed to have traces of carbofuran or methamidophos, pesticide components that are prohibited in the US.
