Mass. Hates New NatGas Pipelines – Unless it’s for a Pot Farm

It seems all of New England hates natural gas pipelines of any kind–whether large interstate pipelines to bring low-cost, clean-burning Marcellus gas into the region, or tiny new extensions of existing local distribution pipelines (the local gas company), especially after the tragedy near Boston (see Local NatGas Pipes Explode Near Boston Killing 1, Injuring 25). But it seems there is at least one exception to the rule of “no new nasty fossil fuel pipelines” in Massachusetts. That exception is if a pipeline is needed to run a co-generation plant at a marijuana farm. Yeah baby! A new gas pipeline is A.O.K. as long as it’s being used to grow pot. Pass the joint this way, would ya?
