A California farmer says it’s time to band together to fight the problem of drug cartels using ag land for their marijuana growing operations.
Dennis Simonian is a prominent Fresno County grower, with a popular area produce store. During a seminar on marijuana and legal agriculture, he spoke first hand on the problems he had when growers planted marijuana across the street from his land.
He encourages other growers to help local law enforcement by being alert and aware of what’s going on near their land, and to call the authorities if they suspect anything suspicious.
