Let me start by saying I have never grown marijuana. I imagine that’s obvious? But I just found out the marijuana weed plant, hemp, absorbs ground properties, therefore reportedly it has been planted in Russia to help clean the area around the nuclear problem of Chernobyl.
Why is this fact pertinent to Las Vegans? Because one recent hang-up, pausing the opening of Nevada’s first medical marijuana dispensaries coming this summer, is they must meet regulations regarding pesticides and other chemical issues. And those regulations had to be meted out first.
Bottom line: If you grow (or possibly store) weed around toxins or metal and other properties, people fear it will absorb those nasties.
