    Gov. Newsom knows this has been going on for years, but he protects the growers.

    It seems these pot professors were wrong about how legalizing marijuana would eliminate marijuana-related crime. Imagine that.

    It was all a lie. Just like they used the excuse of using it for "medical" reasons to decriminalize it in the first place.

    You know you can draft product on board with a water truck. You don't need a auxiliary pump. Unless its a gravity feed truck. PS-Now they want to legit Mushrooms in Oregon.

    Heck, legalize all of it.
    Refuse medical assistance for overdoses, and it’ll sort itself out in 5-10 years.

    I live on the edge of the Emerald Triangle. My work takes me through the heart of it almost every day.The story was accurate.
    The illegal pot growers cause an unbelievable amount of damage to the environment...stream siltation, pollution of waterways, illegal grading resulting in erosion, non-permitted timber cutting, hazardous chemicals improperly used and disposed of, stream diversion, improper disposal of human waste, not to mention all the drug related assaults and murders we see every year.
    Now they're stealing equipment needed to fight fires. I can understand that they need water for their crops but somebody whose house is burning down might need it more.
    The legitimate pot growers, those with the required licences and permits, usually practice good agriculture, use environment friendly techniques, and follow the rules . They dislike the outlaw growers because they bring down unwanted attention and turn public opinion against the entire industry.
    They'll settle it out among themselves I'm sure. The saying around here is that when you go into the Covelo area you need to set your watch back...set it back about twenty five years. Most people carry guns up there...and with good reason.

    I don't know if you saw the Murder Mountain documentary on Netflix. I thought it was pretty good. Some people say it was sensationalized. I don't live there so I don't know. All I know is I wouldn't go driving around those mountains off the highway.
