Nearly one-third of Mendocino County economy is underground
By Linda Williams
Updated: 04/14/2012 11:58:33 PM PDT

The Willits News
Residents of Mendocino County reported gross incomes of $1.377 billion in 2010. Using a calculation suggested by a Humboldt County banker, the underground economy contributed another $675 million to the county economy.
Understanding the real contribution of marijuana 's underground economy on Mendocino County has historically been difficult. Many past assumptions have been based on the quantity of marijuana being eradicated, which represents a small fraction of the amount being grown. Calculations made by The Willits News in 2005 estimated the size of the unreported crop in Mendocino County to be in excess of $1.5 billion, based on the 155,000 plants eradicated that year. By 2010, the number of plants eradicated had mushroomed to 572,680, in part due to out-of-area growers flocking here to set up gardens.
Little of the money from the "cartels" and out-of-area grows likely remain in the county as the marijuana and growers leave the area once the crop is in.

Can Marijuana Help Rescue California's Economy?
By ALISON STATEMAN / LOS ANGELES
Could marijuana be the answer to the economic misery facing California? Democratic state assemblyman Tom Ammiano thinks so. Ammiano introduced legislation last month that would legalize pot and allow the state to regulate and tax its sale — a move that could mean billions of dollars for the cash-strapped state. Pot is, after all, California's biggest cash crop, responsible for $14 billion a year in sales, dwarfing the state's second largest agricultural commodity — milk and cream — which brings in $7.3 billion a year, according to the most recent USDA statistics. The state's tax collectors estimate the bill would bring in about $1.3 billion a year in much needed revenue, offsetting some of the billions of dollars in service cuts and spending reductions outlined in the recently approved state budget.

A lot of people just had to be sick to be made criminals. Great if you're a supervisor and own a bail bond service. It sounds like anyone but Brown around here. The good ole boys closed all the dispensaries went after the doctors, patients, suppliers and other low hanging fruit. Have you noticed how many nurseries have closed? If Mendo's underground economy is around 600 million dollars a year, ours can't be to far below that.

Obama adminstration, Eric Holder will not stand idly by if Calif. voters legalize marijuana
Attorney General Eric Holder said the Feds would vigorously enforce federal law against anyone carrying, growing or selling marijuana if voters pass Calif. Prop 19 to legalize the drug.

By Marcus Wohlsen, Associated Press / October 15, 2010

Marijuana is shown for sale at the San Francisco Medical Cannabis Clinic in San Francisco, Friday. Attorney General Eric Holder says the federal government will enforce its marijuana laws in California even if voters next month make the state the first in the nation to legalize the drug.

Apr-30-2012

Last Thursday, I reported on Obama’s response to a question during a Rolling Stone interview on why his administration is cracking down on medical marijuana. Here is what he said:


I can’t nullify congressional law. I can’t ask the Justice Department to say,‘Ignore completely a federal law that’s on the books.’ What I can say is,‘Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.’ As a consequence, there haven’t been prosecutions of users of marijuana for medical purposes......
“Attorney General Eric Holder was a guest of The Huffington Post at the correspondents’ dinner. Before it began, a HuffPost reporter noted to Holder that Obama’s reference to “congressional law” was misleading because the executive branch could simply remove marijuana from its “schedule one” designation, thereby recognizing its medical use.”That’s right,” Holder said. After Kimmel’s speech, a Holder deputy told HuffPost that there was no coordinated war on medical marijuana, but that some individual clinics were breaking both state and federal laws.”



San Francisco
Attorney General Eric Holder is warning that the federal government will not look the other way, as it has with medical marijuana, if voters next month make California the first state to legalize pot.

15.1 billion a year to fight drugs.

Using Freedom of Information Act requests, archival records, federal budgets and dozens of interviews with leaders and analysts, the AP tracked where that money went, and found that the United States repeatedly increased budgets for programs that did little to stop the flow of drugs. In 40 years, taxpayers spent more than:
—$20 billion to fight the drug gangs in their home countries. In Colombia, for example, the United States spent more than $6 billion, while coca cultivation increased and trafficking moved to Mexico — and the violence along with it.
—$33 billion in marketing "Just Say No"-style messages to America's youth and other prevention programs. High school students report the same rates of illegal drug use as they did in 1970, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says drug overdoses have "risen steadily" since the early 1970s to more than 20,000 last year.
—$49 billion for law enforcement along America's borders to cut off the flow of illegal drugs. This year, 25 million Americans will snort, swallow, inject and smoke illicit drugs, about 10 million more than in 1970, with the bulk of those drugs imported from Mexico.
—$121 billion to arrest more than 37 million nonviolent drug offenders, about 10 million of them for possession of marijuana. Studies show that jail time tends to increase drug abuse.
—$450 billion to lock those people up in federal prisons alone. Last year, half of all federal prisoners in the U.S. were serving sentences for drug offenses.

Pot is, after all, California's biggest cash crop, responsible for $14 billion a year in sales, dwarfing the state's second largest agricultural commodity — milk and cream.

This proves that you just can't stay on track. Now lets try this one more time for the slow guy named "Provocateur". If you go back and "READ" what I wrote instead of listening to some stupid internal dialogue you have going on inside your head. You will see that I was comparing cigarette "smoke" to pot "smoke"
I just don't know how I can make it any simpler for you.
Good luck.
If you burn an old tyre you get smoke, if you burn toast you get smoke, are you saying that all smoke is created equal and has the same effect. What Provocateur is saying is that pot smoke doesn't contain the 599 additives or reactions to those additives when burnt that cigarette smoke does. I suggest you smoke some pot, might ease your troubled mind.

Congressional Candidate Andy Caffrey Vows To Smoke A Joint On Capitol Hill
Democratic congressional candidate Andy Caffrey has made a surprising campaign promise: If he wins his election this fall, he'll smoke a joint on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Caffrey, who's running to replace retiring Rep. Lynn Woolsey in California's second district, has lit up more than once on the campaign trail -- first at an Occupy event in Mendocino, and again last week outside the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, a Fairfax-based dispensary that was closed by federal officials in December.
