The sound of billions of mosquitoes all buzzing in unison dying to dig into your flesh as they crowd your tent on all sides really is quite humbling

This is a life-sized painting of Compsognathus. No, not on your computing device’s screen,* silly, but in print. I have a few of these on the way and I’m going to call them: Life-sized Little Dinosaurs ( | Pterosaurs).
*I wish there was a way to do this, it would be great to know what the actual real-life dimensions of things on screen.
I have been saving this ask because its such a complicated issue and I didn’t have access to some of the footage/photographs I wanted to show, but it just so happens that the US Forest Service recently put out a short (~5 minute) video about the sheer impact that illegal marijuana grow sites have on the environment.
This really isn’t an issue about the effectiveness of marijuana, but on the amazingly devastating impact illegal grow sites have on public lands. Maybe legalizing it will result in fewer of these illegal grow sites, maybe it will cause more because there will be more demand (and you don’t have to pay for land, water, taxes if you grow illegally on the forest). Either way, something has to be done because it is getting out of hand:
(the video if it isn’t embedded above, can be watched here on YouTube).
“Marijuana growing on our national forests causes significant harm to the land, water and animals. The toxicants and lethal weapons found at these sites are both shocking in terms of amount, and raise concerns regarding the health of the Region’s forests. The Forest Service, along with other agencies and volunteers, are working together to restore these impacted lands.” -US Forest Service
