Federal Government Seeks to Protect Fishers from Poison on Pot Farms
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a proposal on Monday to protect fishers, a weasel-like species, from rat poison used on marijuana plantations. The West Coast fisher is a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act and scientists are concerned because they've disappeared from forests in Washington, Oregon and California. After the proposal goes through a 90-day comment period, the species' status will be issued by this time next year.
