  • maybe its time to shut that motel down like they are doing in Eureka its beginning to be scarey to even go to Garberville . I think I will stangle the next person who tells me how great growing pot is.

  • I don’t think the pot is the problem. The spoon and needle says it all….

  • “Drugs on the table!” I think we’re winning!
    Seriously, is this just to justify a (the cops) paycheck?
    Or do we who pay those bills think some progress is being made here?

    Two things are infinite… actually ones yet uncertain…

  • 15000 dollars bail, let’s see 10 percent is a 150 bucks, these sheriff’s are joking!
    What a complete joke!

  • Getaplangetagoal&getupoffyourass!

    Why do they insist on naming the same motel over & over? Its not like the rest of the garb motels are any different!!Multiple complaints from locals?? These people are the locals!! Get busy doing something that actually matters & helps the community, not hassling the locals that are minding their own business getting high!! People should be able to take & use whatever they want!! Regular folks just don’t understand… The shit is totally in demand!! Takes away a boring day, makes everything seem OK!! Mouths full of tooth decay, were not hungry anyway!! The dope man is our favorite guy, come on & give it a try!!
