I've always wondered how much of that whacked weed was "actually" unloaded from the trucks and into the burn pile?'
Hmmmmm!!

Imagine what happens to the birds flying overhead too! Should we put them in rehab? Preach at em? arrest them? or buy their records and poetry?

This is the Humboldt version of agriculturtal price support. Keep up the good work, our small growers need the price of weed to be high. ;)

They don't bother with Meth, because that's far too dangerous for the Cannabis Commandos!

If the Chamber of Commerce had any sense, they'd be supporting growers. How do they think business owners can stay open in the poor economy? Growers have money!

Just some more politics...
and trying to show high numbers of plants
that they whack down.... they don't usually arrest
anyone..... JUST WASTE TAXPAYERS MONEY
Hey I thought California and US in general had
money problems.... except they spent tons on
cutting down some pot plants that harm no one...

GO AFTER THE REAL PROBLEM METH

Every year we spend more than last.
Every year they claim more plants destroyed.
Every year they claim victory!

We are cutting parks, seniors, teachers, and God forbid we have a safe place for battered women to go.

And yet we allow CAMP to go on, year after year.

Will we ever wake up?

All these posts about meth...it appears the cookers are on every block. If you know where it's coming from let the law know. Yell it from the roof tops, post it here. Keep the police busier than a one armed paper hanger busting labs. When the labs are shutdown there will always be some addicts looking for that perfect high..good news for the dope growers. Keep the police out of your dope patch - turn in a lab.

Soon it will be their jobs that are whacked when pot is made legal.

Funny how they cut 20,000 plants last week...and cut record numbers every year yet pot gets easier and easier to find.

Ever heard of exercise in futility?

Please notice the correlation with your "parks...seniors....teach ers and battered women".
The cannabis grown today- has a negative effect on 1) our local parks--high, intoxicated people- who smell of smoke is not so great for families to see in parks. 2) Those home-health, care providers..coming-down from cannabis use contributes to irritability, anxiety- which in turn can effect care for our seniors.. 3)our schools are impacted by students who are using our 21st century cannabis- who are learning in a vaccum- struggling with short-term memory- impacted by long-term neurological effects and 4)Battered women impacted by possible cannabis dependent users- becoming irritable, irrational as they withdraw from use. So yes, lets focus on these issues as well.

Litterally more than half of those 20,000 plants were irradicated from U.S. Forest Service land. Are you people advocating destruction of our National Forests and pollution of our watersheds in the name of pot. Yes, a marijuana plant is just a harmless herb, but 10,000 marijuana plants in our National Forest is an environmental disaster!!!!! Who is out there cleaning up that mess folks? The answer is CAMP. Earlier this year pro pot advocates demanded that authorities go after grows in the National Forest and HUGE COMMERCIAL GROWS and leave the small time mom & pops alone, and now that their wish has been granted they still complain.

I am not. I advocate legalization and regulation to avoid that kind of destruction.

Considering how long it will most likely take to legalize pot on the federal level- which is what it is going to take to kill the incentive for illegals to plant massive grows on public lands-, what do you propose we do about the grows on public lands in the mean time while campaigning for legalization? Should we sacrafice our National Forests and watersheds? Should we erradicate those grows on public lands? What's your opinion on this subject?
