Cannabis farms waste enormous amounts of water and contribute to the drying up of the Colorado River, which begins in marijuana-laden Colorado.

For example, in 2017, there was a massive bust of 9,200 cannabis plants on two islands in the Colorado River, visible from I-70.[1] Merely one cannabis plant consumes 6 gallons of water per day from June through October, which is the growing season during which water is most scarce.[2]
