The title should read "CAMP pulls," not "pull." This is America. Write American newspaper articles in American English, please.

"No arrests were reported." Funny how almost without fail these CAMP operations never seem to arrest anybody. They just seize the plants. Inquiring minds want to know. It also said investigations are continuing. Unless they actually catch the people there red-handed, it will be awfully difficult for them to ever arrest anybody, as most of these growing operations occur on Government land, thus no obvious traceable connection between the perpetrators and the grow operations. At least we destroyed the plants, but no one is caught. That is unfortunate.

I beg to differ with you. The sentence includes the Sheriff's Office AND CAMP, making the use of 'pull' correct, since it refers to plural rather than singular nouns. Bad grammar police, no donut.

no arrests were reported probably because these people are not living on their pot farms.

Why isn't there a "Campaign Against Meth Program"?

This year has seen more confrontations(including deaths) and arrests during pot patch raids than in years past.Just not in Humboldt Co.

Wow-all on public or timber company lands. People are really blowing it up on their own private lands this year. Bust some of those and you can't help but make arrests, confiscate lots of equipment and easy to follow those money trails. They are very big and easily seen by air. Here's a small hint: see big greenhouses-they're full of weed. See huge gardens-they're not really "medical." It's almost like there is no enforcement at all.

I welcome the eradication of pot on public land and timber land and hope CAMP spends all their time taking out huge gardens. No one person needs a 10K plant garden, must be organized crime.

Greenhouses require search warrants and investigation. Imagine the egg on their faces if they show up and find tomatoes! CAMP can seize open-field grows without waiting around for a judge to sign a warrant. Path of least resistance.

Good riddance to idiots who try to get rich on our national forest lands. Stay humble and you won't get caught.

60,000 plants? Woooo! Shasta County has pulled over 300,000 so far this year. Something seems fishy here, Humboldt County is the pot capital of the world, we all know there is a LOT more than 60,000 plants growing. That's not even a drop in the bucket. Get with it CAMP and do your job!

Since the advent of confiscation of personal property in drug busts, the use of "public" lands for operations has exploded. People often think "what mor-on would do such a thing?" That's just it: only the dumb ones looking to avoid arrest wouldn't. Call it better business sense, even if criminal.

The government can't seize property from itself. That's why it's done. Legalize it and bring all the operations down out of the mountains and clean it up. License, regulate, and get rid of gang leaders incentive to cash in AND trash our park lands. Let the homegrowers have ther little greenhouses with 100 plants and leave them the hell alone like things used to be. THey didn't bother anyone out in the hills, no one bothered them until sometime in the late 70s people all of a sudden went apesh*At over pot growing.

"Must be?" It IS, organized crime. It's been the problem since day one. Grow what you need, with sanction, on your own land and leave the forests alone! Get out of OUR National Parks and Forests! When I have to pack a side arm to enjoy hiking, I'm "done."

Killing 138,746 plants is a poor use of law enforcement resources. Instead, police should focus on increasing the clearance rate for homicides, which has declined dramatically as we have ramped up the War on Cannabis. Despite killing the 138,746 cannabis plants, pot is still easier for teenagers to buy than beer.

Please support California Proposition 19, which will put police priorities back where they belong: on violent crimes and property crimes. For more information on why you should vote YES on Prop 19, please visit http://yes19.org

Yes on 19 looks pretty good to me.
* Legalizes marijuana possession of up to one ounce by adults over 21
* Lets each county or municipality decide whether to allow cannabis sales and production and if so how much to tax these activities
* Generates an estimated $1.4 billion in tax revenue
* Saves taxpayers the costs of enforcing the current laws against cannabis and cannabis paraphernalia
* Allows cannabis cultivation for personal use on private land of up to 25 square feet with certain restrictions

What Prop 19 does not do:

* Does not legalize marijuana for those under 21
* Does not allow driving under the influence of marijuana
* Does not prohibit employers from drug testing
* Does not impose new taxes or quantity restrictions on medical marijuana patients

thanks for the info I'll pass it along

Yes on 19!

What it does do:

Turns everywhere north of Santa Rosa into Orick

Loses billions of dollars paid in sales tax on profits made by small growers

Gives the industry over to multinational corporations who will pay little in taxes, will send the profits to shareholders all over the states, taking it out of the local economies.

The multinationals will now be able to hire illegal immigrants for trimming and pay them less than minimum wage instead of the now $20/hr going rate.

Ruin almost every local business - believe it or not - if you own a Christian bookstore in the area, chances are that pot money has rippled over to your store through construction paid for with pot money.

Put everyone that is currently making money on it on government assistance as there are not many jobs available to take up the slack.

Will make sure that corporations based out of state can still make sure their employees dont smoke pot on their own time.

What are you...fin retarded. Get a clue. Prop 19 is disastrous. If it passes, I hope you enjoyed living up here while you did, because you probably won't be able to much longer. Idiots like you are going to kill California.
