The HSU Marijuana Studies Working Group presents the first in a series of free public symposia on the ecological and human health impacts of the marijuana industry in the Emerald Triangle on Thursday, April 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the BSS Native Forum on Humboldt State University’s campus.
Researchers and practitioners specializing in lesser-known aspects of marijuana production—land use, pesticide use, water quality, and other environmental impacts—will discuss issues that are often left out of mainstream discussion and political analysis of the marijuana economy. Panelists will propose a more constructive and progressive approach to ensure environmental and human health protections.
Panelists include Tony LaBanca, Senior Environmental Scientist with the California Department of Fish and Game, Stormer Feiler, an Environmental Scientist with the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Tony Silvaggio, Ph.D., an Environmental Sociologist in HSU’s Department of Sociology, and Curtis Miller, an Environmental Planner with the Hoopa Tribal EPA.
The meeting will be the first of a series of discussions on the topic of environmental impacts related to the marijuana industry.
