Re: “Facebook Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz Tosses $50K to Prop 19

Please don't call Oakland's plans "farms." Farms are natural places of sun and soil, or at least they should be. Oakland wants to create factories. Factory farms, like for veal or de-beaked chickens.

Re: “HempCon Blasted for Cheap Medical Pot Prescriptions

PayPal has also discriminated against legitimate cannabis activities. They denied California NORML services, and recently denied service to the new 707 Cannabis University.

Cannabis activists, educators and legal business need to deman respect and recognition.

Re: “Huge, Legal Cannabis Farm Study Surprises Industry, Officials

What's getting lost here is the issue of sustainability.

a 5000 light operation, at 1000 wats per light, is 5 million watts per hour x 12 hours per day (the shortest amount of hours the plants are exposed to light) =60,000,000 watts or 6 MW. A MW (megawatt) powers about 500 California homes per year. One day of electricity use by this factory farm could power at least 3,000 homes for a year, that not including fans, filters, dehumidifiers & etc.

This is not sustainable. Where are they going to get this energy? From drilling for gas in the gulf? From mountaintop removal for 'clean' coal?

It is a weed, and will grow with solar power, no need for special equipment. Just plant them in the sun. The City of Oakland, which has expressed its desire to be a leader in efforts to achieve oil independence, needs to rethink it's enthusiasm for indoor growing. It's one thing to think about the jobs and money that come with cannabis, it's another to let those bright lights blind them to environmental reality.
