ALBUM: "Marijuana Eradication"
Organized cultivation of marijuana is on the rise. BLM has seized and eradicated more than 165,000 plants from public lands since January of 2002. The majority of gardens have been located in northern California, while in southern California the act and effects of methamphetamine production is equally damaging. BLM Law Enforcement program is responsible for protecting public safety and resources across 15 million acres of California BLM-managed public lands. Enforcement efforts are complicated by the visitor impacts of the Los Angeles Basin, the San Francisco Bay Area, and the greater San Diego Area. Recreational visits to public lands have increased to 20 million visitors annually.
