The Environmental Impacts of Marijuana

What are the environmental impacts and hazards of marijuana grown in our national forests or public lands? Is there a threat we need to be concerned about? To help answer those questions and more, the National Marijuana Initiative has just released an educational video entitled, “Can’t See the Forest for the Weed: Marijuana Trafficking on the Trail.”

This video features Dr. Mourad Gabriel, renowned ecologist, author and Executive Director of the Integral Ecology Research Center. Dr. Gabriel will take you on the trail to marijuana cultivation sites to witness first hand the chemical and environmental hazards associated marijuana grown illegally on public lands. The video will also examine the devastating impacts to the fragile ecosystems and wildlife found in those areas.

Video run time: 25 minutes
