In Iowa, neighbors to hog confinements, rendering plants or other ag-related operations at times sue over strong smells. In fact, there was just a recent Des Moines Register headline about noxious news in the north. In California, there's a new stinky neighbor -- marijuana farms. The New York Times reports: "When Californians voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016, there were debates about driving under the influence and keeping it away from children. But lawmakers did not anticipate the uproar that would be generated by the funk of millions of flowering cannabis plants. As a result of the stench, residents in Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, are suing to ban cannabis operations from their neighborhoods. Mendocino County, farther north, recently created zones banning cannabis cultivation -- the sheriff’s deputy there says the stink is the No. 1 complaint."
