It was only a matter of time before this ordinance was contested. I'm for certain plant count limits but this ordinance interferred with collective growing in a way that made it almost impossible.

Do you feel the same way and say the same things about alcohol? After all, alcohool can be overdosed on and is harmful to the body if taken in excess. cannabis has neither effect.
Don't let your hatred for what you don't understand rule your thoughts. Do some research and learn some facts.

Sorry, a person can't die from a marijuana o.d.

However being a hate filled person can cut many years off ones life.

I'll take the weed smoker as a neighbor any day over "reefer madness" people like you.

Listen to the pro-grow crowd spin the facts. Your 'medicine' is a hoax in MOST instances. Just be honest and say you like to smoke dope. It is your drug of preference/choice. This county is trying to save itself. Pogo said, "We have met the enemy and he is us". More sad truth said, "We have met the enemy and he has no values or respect for community".

Strange how all of the self righteous, pot-haters, have to maintain their position with lies and corruption, while the pot hating cops and DA resort to theft, violence, perjury and corruption to maintain their war against the People.

My ex was convinced that my medical was a hoax. She worked at the hospital in Ukiah. She went to listen to a new doctors speak about bilateral compartment syndrome; same thing I have.

After she went up to speak with the doctor a recent arrival from out of state. Asked him what he would suggest. He responded with a list of really dangerous painkillers and muscle relaxers and a surgery I have had. She said what about medical cannabis? His response "AN EXCELLENT ALTERNATIVE" She didn't believe either! Now she does!

ITS A RECOMMENDATION BY A LICENSED DOCTOR. Just like all the sleeping pills, pain killers and other really dangerous stuff all you haters are taking!

I can't wait for the haters to wake up and realize its like thousands of start up drug companies are trying to make Mendocino county home. Embrace the new alternative.

THANK YOU TO THESE HEROIC PATIENTS!

I hope that now the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Tom Allman can see the effect of their lies, indecision and incompetence. Now both the "Anti" and the "Pro pot" people want to take them to court. We'll have to remember next time to vote for competent decisive people who prioritize important things like public safety and keeping the drugs out of our schools and then get the Sheriff's office and the DA working together in that direction instead of doing nothing at all.

A good Sheriff and DA that worked together could make the criminals themselves pay for the problems they create. Instead we have corrupt simpletons who can't think beyond just putting quick illegal cash in their own pockets.

Both the Pro & Anti pot people will have to move fast with their lawsuits before the DEA moves in and takes away with the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors, Sheriff Tom Allman & DA Lintott. Don't forget there is such a thing as criminal incompetence.

These thieves, in the name of their war on drugs, has dragged the elderly through the courts, attemting to steal their life saveings. They even stole the life savings from an elderly lady whoe needs it for her medical life support. If she suffers medical harm due to lack of medical care, her blood will be on the hands of the HATERS!

How about those that care for several patients or operate a legal not for profit cooperative?

Thousands of small startup nonprofits want to make Mendocino county home. Regulation and taxation needs to replace HATE. 215 is the law.

Mendocino county invited these people here. They bought homes and land all in good faith and trying to comply with the law. Then the rules changed and many were made criminals.

Blood runs on your hands for supporting an illegal drug that is now in control of the drug cartels. If you are into weed then you support terrorism against our great nation. Open your eyes instead of being doped up on something that is illegal. If you want the weed to be legal go to the Feds not the state. Feds are the ones that regulate the FDA that in turns regulate drugs. States can't regulate that is federal. That is just like say Mendocino County should have it's own currency it doesn't work that way.

Launch damn air strikes on these pot heads houses and hopefully end their lives. Their damn weed smell pollutes society their views are noise pollution to society. It's the MINORITY of the population make it look and sound as if this entire county is for weed. If that was true why did Measure B pass? Don't let these few trouble makers make it look like the majority of people favor weed. They are so doped up it's just insane. Allman is a very productive Sheriff for this county
Sorry, the majority voted in favor of it, like it or keep crying, I could care less either way. In fact new polls show the majority of Cali's want to completely LEGALIZE and regulate cannabis. They are tired of your worn out war on drugs. All it does is create easier access for kids, violence, gang banging and corruption. If you favor prohibition, you favor kids doing drugs.

No, prohibition lovers are the ones with blood on there hands. Marijuana has been used for over 3000 years by man, only illegal the last 70 years. In fact many of todays drug companies used to sell it before prohibition. The blood shed ends when the reefer madness crowd dies off. Reefer madness is proof that brain washing does in fact work.

Mendo Guy is a prime example of the dumbing down of America, Reefer madness lives on!

10% of America is on some kind of anti-depressant and 5% of those will develop manic-psychosis from their pharmaceutical zombie pills.

Yes, there's a lot of illness going around.

That's for the doctor to decide. Not you or the law! Bet if most of you antis were suddenly told you were restricted to a too small amount you would all be yelling big time. but because it's about pot you all seem to think it's all A-ok. Get it through your thick heads! This is about medicine whether you want to believe it or not. And the 25 plant per parcel didn't really limit very many individual growers where there was one grower per parcel (even though that is illegal to do). It limited collective growing to 2 patients (12 x 2) which is illegal to do according to the state laws as they are written. it was only a matter of time before this ordinance was contested and a few of us have tried to tell you all this but all we got back was sensless arguments and lies.
