Jay Bergstrom: The value of pot-stink

This story brought back some olfactory memories. Where I lived in Sacramento, the bakeries had to install scrubbers after they were determined to be stationary pollution sources. I’ve had to learn baking at home just to get the polluted stink I love so much. Walking or cycling around town has lost some flavor, for sure. But I am hopeful that the environment for all of us will improve.

When cannabis is completely legal, its value will become comparable to roses. People do occasionally steal roses, but many more cannabis plants become the target of theft. Dealing with the scent would be one good way to decrease the risks growers are exposed to. Making its value that of roses would probably be the best.
