Smoking Marijuana Creates 2lbs Of Carbon: Does That Make Obama A Hypocrite?

by | 14th, April 2011

MARIJUANA is killing the planet. Not taking into account the burning, just growing weed indoors uses 1 percent of the entire US electricity supply. It also creates “17 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year (not counting the smoke exhaled)”.

So estimates Evan Mills, an energy analyst at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

He adds:

“From the perspective of individual consumers, a single Cannabis cigarette represents 2 pounds of (carbon dioxide) emissions.”

Can it thus be argued that pot smoking anti-climate change activists are hypocrites? You know, people like Barack Obama, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and more..?
