I saw this interesting RFP come in:
The California Department of Food and Agriculture requires the services of an environmental consulting firm to prepare an environmental impact report for its Medical Cannabis Cultivation Program.
Awareness has increased about how marijuana cultivation has affected water diversion, pesticide use, energy use and forest habitat. The results of this study will be interesting.
This notice caught my eye as I attended a presentation on Marijuana in Washington by a local author this week…and then saw a program focusing on the water and energy needs of farmers who grow the plant and how variations affect the breeding and quality of the product.
