All mining permits and maps are public information. If you buy property that was owned or surfaced leased by a mining company. This information is available. They should have done their due diligence before purchasing the property. The land owner should pay if they want it fixed, Not the government.

Well, might i also add that your wood burning stoves emit more C02 than natural gas. So you're actually making the problem worse. And actually the E&P companies paid for my house. If your dumb enough to sign a contract relieving them of all liability then its you're own fault. Shelling out thousands for a home repair is a lot cheaper than bad PR. How them windmills treating you? You guys gonna be up on your roofs shoveling your solar panels?

I see no issue, i'll pack my kid skittles, snickers, cookies and sandwich with a nice 20oz coke to wash it down. If people are going to have the government buy their kids lunch... beggers can't be choosers.

Yup, I mean there is already medical Heroin,medical cocaine and medical Meth that are used throughout the medical community. It all went through the FDA and the right channels. I'm sure if Marijuana was a very valuable medical supplement they would have already had it incorporated into medicine widespread. I mean really, anything you smoke is bad for you regardless. Its not much different from inhaling smoke from a burning wood pile.

Lets face it, this isn't about medical marijuana, it is simply a front for people to get high legally. And they are using poor diseased children to push their agenda. I think if they really want to make it medically and help people that could possibly benefit from it, it should be extracted and concentrated in the form of a liquid or pill and should go through standard FDA procedures just like every other Medical prescription drug.

"76,BTW the words in caps in the article were put there by the author.
I still stand undefeated in the challenge. Hydraulic fracturing has never caused pollution."
It has but not to the extreme scale that these folks make it out to be, there have been leaking machines, refueling incidents and hydraulic hoses breaking on rigs, however proper preparation and set regulations for dealing with these problems as well as methods for cleaning and redeeming have proven this incidents to be next to negligible as far as environmental pollution goes. Land fills cause more pollution, Liter and surface methane related pollution than the oil/gas industry. You should start banning land fills.

They flare at the landfill in poland all the time (for the dump not for the fracking) the waste management landfill has been flaring for the past 15 years. ( again the landfill is not the gas company) they do this to prevent build up of methanes from decomposed garbage that can cause potential disasters. The lights you see are probably just the well pad working lights. I can see them from my house right on the "Stateline".
