Drought in California May Make Marijuana Crop More Potent

marijuana cropThe drought in California hasn’t caused a forest fire yet, but it may help stoners get more blazed than ever. According to retired USDA ethno-botanist James Duke, when plants are stressed from lack of water or other environmental factors, they tend to exhibit more potent medicinal properties. Because of the water use restrictions implemented in California, growers are likely to plant more and more crops outdoors in order to take care of rain as a source of irrigation. Research has shown that marijuana grown outdoors will likely adapt to require less water to survive.  This additional outdoor marijuana crop may cause stress on the environment as marijuana is not native to many of the environments where growers plant it. Although water is being conserved in California, I’m sure that bongs are still bubbling across the state.
