As a medical marijuana user, I applaud the successes of California law enforcement finding and shutting down these illegal grow operations. These illegal growers are destroying our precious ecosystems by stealing spring water, and going against all the work being done by the medical community to restore America's relationship to hemp. With the decriminalization of marijuana for medical purposes, illegal growing and selling operations in California are on their way out. Let certified caregivers grow cannabis in safe, secure, and legal operations where they create jobs, pay taxes, and put criminal drug-runners out of business.

Medical Matters,

I agree wholeheartedly that illegal operations should be shut down. I feel strongly that the production and sale of marijuana should be legalized and that all operations should be properly regulated to assure safety, quality and environmental compatibility.

This is an outstanding source of revenue that should not be allowed to slip through our fingers.
