Endangered Species-Marijuana Poison
FILE - This April 29, 1998 file photo shows a female fisher at the Northwest Trek wildlife park near Eatonville, Wash. Federal biologists reviewing whether to put the West Coast population of fishers on the endangered species list are, for the first time under the Endangered Species Act, considering the threats from outlaw marijuana plantations. Recent research has shown fishers dying from rat poison, and scientists think it is coming from backwoods pot plantations. (AP Photo/Louie Balukoff, File)
