We’ve already noted a scientist’s conclusion that one joint of indoor pot equals about two pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. A lot.
And then the Press Democrat’s own Guy Kovner talked to folks about the carbon footprint question who said they prefer indoor pot because it’s rumored to be more potent and others who only opt for the stuff grown in the sunshine.
Guy also found that:
In Humboldt County, average household electricity use last year was 26 percent greater than PG&E’s systemwide average. In Lake County, average use was 29 percent higher and in Mendocino County it was 41 percent higher, according to PG&E.
Do you look for “indoor” or “outdoor” on the labels of marijuana sold at dispensaries? Or inquire when it comes to other sources?
