Conflict of Interests: Marijuana Production Sends “Greenhouse Gas” Emissions Through the Roof

Smoking is a form of masturbation. It neuters men while making them feel momentarily good.

The government wants people high because getting high is a cope that makes people less likely to resist the insanity that Bill Gates and the elite are pushing. They also want people to believe in the climate change hoax and go along with whatever they claim will help reduce “greenhouse emissions.”

But it turns out that marijuana is increasing these supposedly doom-oriented emissions.

Study Finds:

Although marijuana may be a natural product, it turns out America’s cannabis industry is becoming a lot less eco-friendly. A new report reveals that the energy it takes to grow marijuana in large quantities is sending greenhouse gas emissions through the roof, literally.

Researchers from Colorado State University say the $13 billion cannabis industry is a booming business across the United States. However, most of that commercial production takes place indoors. As a result, the gas and electricity it takes to run all these operations seriously worsens the industry’s carbon footprint.

The team adds that the problem shows no signs of slowing down as more states legalize marijuana’s use, both medically and recreationally. Study authors performed a life-cycle assessment of indoor cannabis operations across the U.S. Their report analyzed the energy and materials needed to grow marijuana commercially in each U.S. county in order to find the amount of emissions it causes.

What makes growing marijuana so harmful to the environment?

The results reveal the bulk of greenhouse gases come from the electricity and natural gas consumption involved in growing cannabis. This power helps to run high-intensity grow lights, regulate the grow house’s temperature, and supplies carbon dioxide which accelerates plant growth.

“We knew the emissions were going to be large, but because they hadn’t been fully quantified previously, we identified this as a big research opportunity space,” study leader and graduate student Hailey Summers says in a university release. “We just wanted to run with it.”

The report updates a previous study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers which looked at small-scale grow operations in California. Those results, however, predate the growing number of states to follow Colorado in legalizing the drug in 2012. Currently, 36 states allow the use of medical marijuana and 15 allow recreational use.

The solution, of course, is to stop raising cows and start using that land to grow marijuana. It would be killing two birds with one stone: we stop the climate-ruining cows from farting and give people the bread and circuses they need to stop them from protesting.

Or, another option: this inconvenient fact just doesn’t ever get mentioned again.

One thing is certain: they’re not going to take people’s weed away. They need people as high as possible to make this system work.
