Marijuana cultivation negatively impacts the environment in several ways, including diminishing and poisoning the water table and pesticides adversely impacting the health of neighboring residents.  The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has a zero-tolerance policy for these offenses. If you suspect drug activity in your area, please contact your local Sheriff’s Station. The Hemet Sheriff’s Station can be reached at (951) 791-3400 and the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station can be reached at (951) 766-2400.
