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.
Sounds like cleanup would be an excellent job for community service or jail trustees.

it't not the in your face attitude, it's the open growing. I understand that in the cities and populated areas are more difficult to cultivate in without offending neighbors, but you CAN do it. Unfortunately, with measure b, instead of finding a common middle ground, it divided the community.
I know you're not the in your face type. I might be wrong, but from what I've gathered you mainly grow indoors anyway. By "open growing" being the problem I assume you mean growing "outdoors." Collectives have been an issue here seeing how we have a local 25 plant per parcel law. But I also know many large outdoor collectives have been walked away from as well in the last couple of years. In the article this thread is about, the smallest grow eradicated was 750 plants and didn't sound at all like it was medical and/or a collective.

Good idea. How about the prison camp (i.e.Chamberlain Creek) crews, etc...?

I am also weary of the greed and in your face behavior exhibited by the new breed of growers... Unfortunately, they tend to be the representatives of the issue, and easy targets for their opponents... the responsible growers/users of cannabis tend to me more discreet and fly under the radar... I guess that's why these negative stereotypes have evolved
Absolutely true. Well said.

If you think the war on drugs is a good idea and the law enforcement types are doing their jobs then this story from the LA times today should boost your moral.

High-ranking U.S. anti-drug official, Richard Padilla Cramer held front-line posts in the war on Mexico's murderous cartels. He led an office of two dozen agents in Arizona and was the attache for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Guadalajara.
Cramer allegedly advised traffickers on law enforcement tactics and pulled secret files to help them identify turncoats. He charged $2,000 for a Drug Enforcement Administration document that was sent to a suspect in Miami by e-mail in August, authorities said.

"Cramer was responsible for advising the [drug traffickers] how U.S. law enforcement works with warrants and record checks as well as how DEA conducts investigations to include 'flipping subjects,' " or recruiting informants, a criminal complaint says.

If you think the border crackdown is leading to more cartel involvment in mendo then read this from yesterday.

California's Imperial County, U.S. authorities believe the Baja California state capital has become the major staging ground for drug trafficking into the U.S. The Calexico port of entry now leads the nation in cocaine seizures, with a 64% increase in overall drug seizures for the period from October 2008 through July 2009 compared with the same period a year earlier, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Traffickers have boasted publicly about how easy it is to slip drugs into Imperial County. "I was great at it. I had never lost a car in the border.[Drug-sniffing] dogs never hit it or nothing," convicted smuggler Carlos Cuevas Jr., the leader of a large trafficking organization, testified last year.
Those obstacles were illustrated in a recent California state investigation in which an undercover officer penetrated a Mexicali-based ring. The eight-month probe revealed that traffickers sent about 40 loads across the border. Inspectors detected only one of them, according to Limon, the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement supervisor.

Good luck drug warriors and I would like to see proof of cartels in mendo other than spanish newspapers and mexican food at grow sites.
