Abstract

Since the 1960s, marijuana has become the leading export crop of this region and is grown on the best soils. The many goats are kept mainly for their manure to fertilize the kif fields. But all those goats destroy vegetation which has exacerbated soil erosion. The lucrative gains of kif in the short-term compromise the long-term ecological integrity of the mountains.―(DWG)
