For the second consecutive year, California drug authorities have reported that outdoor illegal marijuana growing has decreased.
Yes, the numbers are in at the close of this 2012 season of marijuana-growing. Based on the statistics gathered there was once again an overt and clear reduction in marijuana-related drug seizures and arrests.
According to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, federal, state, and local law agencies have been working towards this specific goal eradicating marijuana crop growing on public land.
In fact, as recently as 2009 illegal marijuana crop growing on public land reached the most high for the decade. A staggering 7.3 million plants were grown on public land in California in 2009.
At that time Federal drugs officials realized that marijuana crop growing public land in California was not only a problem but was reaching epidemic-level proportions that required a strategic plan, e.g., federal government shutdown of marijuana dispensaries.
As a result, newly computed statistics revealed that illegal marijuana crop growing was reduced by more than half within the last 3 years.
The official number of marijuana plants grown on public land in California this past season stand at 1.5 million.
According to the Huffington Post, many presume that the incredible reduction is a result of the Federal government’s closure of numerous California medical marijuana dispensaries.
Apparently, it is simply supply and demand. When the demand for marijuana decreased, the former requisite supply or amount of marijuana-growing decreased.
Meanwhile, others think that the sharp decrease in marijuana crop growing on public land in California is a result of growers retreating to the underground, otherwise known as growing marijuana on private land, illegally, until pro-legalization activists make headway.
