Should Fairfax Ban Noxious Weeds?

The Fairfax Town Council is considering banning non-native plants that can negatively impact natural habitats and ecosystems. Do you think the council should OK a ban?

Should Fairfax Ban Noxious Weeds?

 

The Fairfax Town Council is considering a ban on noxious weeds, including French broom, Scotch broom and yellow starthistle, according to the Marin Independent Journal. 

If approved by the council, the ordinance would make it unlawful to sell, plant or permit existing weeds. 

Councilman Larry Bragman suggested the ordinance, which would also discourage the use of toxic pesticides and herbicides to control noxious weeds. 

According to the IJ, the ordinance would help stop the spread of weeds into Marin Municpal Water District land. 

Would you support the town banning noxious weeds? Do you care? Tell us below in the comments!
