Re. "Breckenridge youth raises issues with homegrown marijuana," SDN, Jan. 14

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.
