What a fool. Didn't even have the common sense to bury the body. How lazy are people getting these days?
Well, with all of the marijuana he was smoking and growing......I imagine he was extremely lazy........
At least there are two less dope growers now.....

Bells Springs Rd. is not the rich, comfortable, "gated community" of self-righteous hippies that it once fancied itself. The feeling of desperation in the air is growing.
The declining price and demand for weed in the flooded market is really starting to change the environment of even the most family friendly enclaves of weed royalty.
Old taboos of the clans are being ignored, greed and jealousy is beginning to rear it's head.
Proof of this is in sloppy desperation: Pumping from the Eel! Grow sites getting huge and more visible to make up for lower prices, Family feuds there's no money to smooth over, Great prices on 4-wheelers this season!
Murder, and it's not involving Mexicans!!

If this is the Bell I think it is then you know how easy it is to conclude that pot had sometyhing to do with this.

Family feuds there is no money to smooth over... especially irritating when it is over property bought by great-grandparents, meant as a vacation spot & one can't even visit anymore,'cause God forbid you might wonder where on earth did these family members who do not work get so much damn money? No wonder they were so anxious to plop their fat asses down & stake a claim on property that was meant for the whole family to enjoy. 600 acres isn't even enough in that area to make one feel safe. I'm glad my inheritance was stolen from me. I simply cannot wait for the price of pot to bottom out. I am waiting for the fire sale, baby! You wanna write a book. I've got a story for ya...

Poor side of Royalty, we must be family.
I'm so sorry to hear you had to deal with that type of poison in your life. May karma be swift and powerful for you. What you mention is the EXACT type of thing I'm starting to fact it's starting to hit a little too close to home, though measures have been taken to dodge that bullet.
Watcher and I may disagree on a lot of things, but we both will be munching popcorn as we watch these types of dramas unfold. Heartwrenching tragedies and ancient morality tales unfolding in our own beautiful forum of crumbling granite and third growth fir.
These peoples grandparents and even a fair share of their parents had real world skills to rely on and a work ethic to endure those hard times when even skills weren't enough.
Today that is not the case. Many won't stick a seed in the ground if the fruit wont produce thc. The future looks bleak in these parts. Maybe schools should have taken more seriously the majority of students who wrote "dope grower" for their "What I dream of for me" english homework! No joke there.
Communites share some responsibility for this, but the lions share goes to parents who failed to look out for their children's futures.
It's Treasure of the Sierra Madre Mendo style!

I don't get it anymore. This shit needs to stop! What happened to the place I wanted to raise a family? What is happening to our county? Murder, stabbings, home invasion with a side of kidnapping and a hostage situation? WTF

Leggett Crab, you are right on the money. The only thing you didn't include is the loss of rural civilians who are planning their escapes as we breath. These communities will have nothing to offer, no jobs to supplant the loss of plant income, and cheap property that will be bought up by who? City dwellers looking for a place to feel the dirt beneath their feet? Will the end of the plant industry put into motion the end of the rural freedom filled lifestyle as well? Anyone who lives in these parts and has an out of area neighbor who does not grow knows of what I speak. What does the wise crabs crystal ball foresee when the wealthy city folk buy up the land and try to coexist?

Long long ago this was a beautiful place to live. When the old families sell out, to make room for the new ones, in order to raise a family that can work for a living. It is very sad!
I wish to raise my childern in a place were people work, not a place that 90% grow.
Look at all the murders, shootings, drug deals, pot hold ups and how much crime goes unreported?
Stop welfare frad and we will stop a lot of crime.
Report these people to the IRS!

Leggett Crab, thank-you for your kind words. The things I speak of happened close to 15 years ago & that is how long it has been since I have visited the property that my great-grandparent's & grandfather's & two Uncle's ashes rest. And where I have so many fond & not so fond family memories. All because of Greed... one love & Unity, my ass... There is enough old growth fur on that property to keep money flowing for generations. Must be nice. Gonna be ironic when the old hippies turn into loggers.

Leggettvillain, that's a very good question. Part of me wants to vindicate the struggling life if chosen, far away from there, while many dear people close to me do all they have ever known.
It's a scary thought what could happen if the market collapses. Weed is the the giver of life, the great provider, the master of life for EVERYONE up there.
I'm torn about it, but my true feelings show when I read about giant busts- I think, "good, supply down price up". I think about friends and local businesses and quietly cheer busted outoftowners.
Because the law up here depends on it every bit as much as the residents do it's going to be a slow change.
I recently had a dream where I heard that a growing guy I know was going to cut a gorgeous stand of fir on his land. I woke up with a pit in my stomach. I'm still not sure it was a dream.
If weed gets much damn cheaper and more plentiful, dueling banjos can't be far off.
I'll probably be back living there then, when the steelie smolts wont have to swim in diesel in the fall or get sucked into pipes; When cougars aren't eating packrats filled with d-con; When scumbags come from every damn corner of the nation to leave their soil bags and pipes in the hills for 10 thousand years.
Then I start to think that it will be a good change.

....then the city dwellers move in and the hills are all ripe for the next timber boom.
Come to think of it, it's the city dweller migration that will be the ultimate death blow. High speed internet, cable, hospitals 10 minutes away, BevMoCostCoCraCKErBARRELsTARBU CKSS!!!!(gag, bluh, barf)
They will insist on these things.
The LA bigshots have changed Wyoming and Montana. The rest of California will come up here.
Water. We have water.
Wow, I'm really depressed now.
