  • how about: water and new development: the totally ignored, lobby driven, resource guzzling elephant in everybodys room. how many more people can we cram into yours?

  • How about- Water Rights on Your Own Land: How you are exchanging them for a permit to use your own water because you want to grow weed. Or that other workshop- Are You a Coward? Apply for permits, pay fees and taxes and still get buried in the new SAFE weed economy!

  • So how much of our water is used for cannabis and how much is used for other agriculture?

  • how about staying on topic and saying something positive for a change. i have never seen such a bunch of cry baby’s. bla bla about nothing. but you are entertaining.

  • Mosthe of the water used in humboldt is for cattle production. Interesting with all the big time dairy producers there is not some law for cattlemen and women to register there wells and any other water pumping use they do. Drive these small dairy men out over nite tax em and regulate em till they can’t compete. Supply and demand.
