The ecology of good weed
How one small farmer is creating a buzz with organic pot. What makes a cannabis crop better than others? A wide range of factors, but perhaps the most important one of them is the soil. "The healthier the soil, the greater its capacity for carbon sequestration, and the greater the farm’s biodiversity, the healthier soil." This is the key principle by which Daniel Stein's farm abides, where "unlike many of the first hippie farmers, Stein relies on ecological science." Here, journalist Madison Margolin finds out more about this method of farming, its impact on the final product, and ultimately, its consumers.
