  1. John,

    Funny article, great read…..

    Two points though:

    1) Next month, recreational cannabis becomes legal in California, and Californians will no longer have to pretend to be sick to legally grow their own weed or shop at a dispensary.

    Response A: LIE…….as opposed to pretend

    2) HOJ wrote an in depth comment about a local county “Disneyland style park” awhile back and it is catching steam…….everything from 🎣 fishing….logging……forrest fauna/flora…….wildlife…….river rafting…….hiking trails…….Bigfoot……CANNABIS…….attempting to brain frame an amusement park draft plan for Willow Creek/China Flat area as part of the LCP……..beginning phases ………great concept but infrastructure mitigations are an unknown so far, especially resource services…..as with Disneyland, a tour guide service is in the mix…..not a monorail, but nonetheless a guided service using shuttles………an all year round park in a rugged region offers a multiplex of opportunities in recreational activities……..and good paying jobs………

    HOJ applauds your enthusiasm JH……hope ya have community lands to create the dream……or a nice big family farm…..

    Disagree on legalization…….it brings policies that destroy communities………HOJ SUPPORTS DECRIMNALIZATION ONLY (now its not illegal)……. personal grows only…….anti commercialization…….

      • Your writing is easy to enjoy……shows you care about the topics…….unlike most blogs, faceless bookie types, twit heads, etc…….and the same copy and pasted stories everywhere it seems……..no originality…….then some started plugging pictures to break up the monotony……shows how you stand apart and above other blogs regardless of reader opinions…….bringing additional thought to an over bloated soup bowl of mainstream blather put out by mainstream blatherers……

        Decriminalization, personal only……..personal decides if for medical or recreation…….personal use and grows are not restricted to proving weed is mold free, this or that…….but no one smokes moldy weed that is a grower……..so, the ploy is that commercialization will be growers selling bad weed, so create regs…….fda never stop stores from selling rotting fruits and veggies with mold that customers won’t buy……..or stop ranchers from selling bad milk that will just get discarded……. why…..because the consumer is smart and does not need regs to decide what is moldy or not, what is rotten or not, etc……and the seller don’t want to go bankrupt on bad reputations……

        No regulation and no permits is best for simple outdoor growing of marijuana (history proves as such)…if existing environmental laws on the books already are enforced……….then no concerns about environment really exist other than odor (mostly bs) and site visibility…… that’s it………as far as edibles, that’s extraction based and no longer just weed for smoke…….. don’t give a rats patooey about altering a plant into infused based products….. have at it taxman……. that IS manufacturing…….but for medical, it should be non taxed……..

        Reality is: marijuana is being attached, as opposed to seperated from, the regulations that apply to all the OTHER ancillary BUT non-plant interactions as part of a bigger business model……..buildings and setbacks, noise, site visibility, smell, drainage, transitory needs, etc…..all stuff currently required to be in a process that applied yesterday already because the codes were enacted yesteryears……but because pot is a plant that is unregulated, it does not mean it is illegal……. can’t be by it’s own considered as illegal “land use wise” if weed is not regulated………other aspects in the course of marijuana are regulated, like waterways, building codes, grading codes, etc……..never needed a pot permit sham scam to go after these folks…….remember the moratorium on rural development and the AOB BULLSHIT……..AOB types never followed a process back in the day because of being categorically exempt or minimalized as no regulation existed at any time to apply against those many patent parcels and uses that existe…….fee simple too prior to regs incepted locally, but the county gubbamint used other codes, like building and sanitary to go after back to lander types without creating a whole permit process until such time that the gubbamint actually attacked ….. because one already existed that was not really applicable……..so to say the pot permit process is a good thing is wrong….its only a cover of validation that existing laws went unenforced FOR DECADES so local regulator types could create a process for money after their buddies built the network over these past decades…….buyers of weed today were secured decades ago……..repeat customers……..

      • Thanks for the compliments. I appreciate it. I’m with you on regulations, to a point. I’d like to see organic certification, because I don’t want to smoke pesticides, but I don’t think the county has any business telling us where or how to live.

  2. Ever notice the only thing that really comes about from this local pot permit policy and the state policy is Realtors are happy:

    Dope Property Owners set up their land to grow weed, BUT then sell the land before the first “legal grow” that is NOW set up through policy with a permit affidavit to boot……..

    No profit, no business…..time to sell before ya even started…… What a sham scam…..

  3. The county is wrong for being involved in drug permits using land use as the camo cover……..FDA is only agency that should have a policy…….. And if you disagree with the policy then you don’t follow the policy, no different than anything else in life…… It’s all about more money into government coffers to hide the fact that government is too big already, takes too much money from wherever it can get it AND then proceeds to just waste the money on the undeserving, the bad Americans who are the last people deserving of that money…..
