The key objective is to secure funding for the prioritized decommissioning and remediation of up to 2,000 grow sites, along with additional funding to place more rangers on the ground in California’s National Forests. This will effectively reduce exposure rates of toxic pesticides and insecticides to communities downstream or near trespass grows, users of public land, as well as reduce wildlife poisonings.
