Cannabis cultivation, both legal and illegal, can impact the environmental and fish and wildlife resources in numerous ways. These potential impacts include pollution and mortality from pesticides and fertilizers, impacts to water from diversions, site development impacts including habitat loss and fragmentation, and site use impacts that include road mortality, noise, and artificial light, among others.
