  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    Wonder if it’s anyway possible to give a parking ticket or tow away anyone attending this meeting?

    The concept of fish in a barrel comes to mind….

    • Sleepy Alligator

      I wonder if it’s at all possible for you to ever have anything to say that is even close to being realistic.

  • Devils Lettuce Crimes

    Oh yes- “Step into the light!”. Stop living in the darkness of unregulated criminal activity and come in from the cold! We will regulate and permit and tax and inform and fine and charge you for anything we can imagine. We will have multiple agencies assigned to inspect, observe, and direct you and you will pay for all of them! Isn’t “legalization” just wonderful?

    • Well put devils lettuce.A bunch of sheep i tell you. Long live the original cultivators,and long live the outlaws. F@k all you tie 👔 wearing yuppy ass wanna be weed farmers paying for your own water. Wake up! They have you by the balls.

      • For sure but what else is one suppose to do if they want to continue forward….things always change sometime for the worst sometimes for the better probably both….. Grow On Y’all…….warrior up…..🤙😈

        • Round & round she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows…except that it never stops! One Tulip bulb used to sell for over $2000-just the way of the world.

          • Devils Lettuce Crimes

            It’s over, everybody. Sorry to break reality to you. Look in the land sale pages and see many properties for sale with 3 acre permits about to be granted. Then look at Salinas Valley and see much bigger scenes going in. Then look at Oregon. Do some simple math and logic. It is over for you. Why would you bother spending your last $$$ to jump through hoops for permits you can never use or sell because your scene is far from competitive? Don’t fall for the regulators and supervisors and those parasitic consultants and lawyers and other bullshit artists trying to seperate you from your money. They don’t care about you. And you will need every dollar you have to create a new income or at least to withstand this coming economic depression that is ….pretty much already here! Have you paid off your mortgage yet? That would be a good place to start! Protect what you have because in approving this sham “legalization” we only allowed all the deep pockets to take over and run the little guy under. Congratulations on your “freedom”!!

            • Well said Devils lettuce

              If that happens, then that’s what happens. Such vitriol and hate. The basic, underlying concept is to end the illegality and all that goes with it. I hope you can find a more appropriate target for your gloating and loathing. Totally clueless.

        • We are good place for outlaw growing that’s about it. Keep it black market… any other which way we are not in an optimal site. People going legal should look elsewhere. It’s not our niche. Except for having lots of water. That is another plus, if we can stop southern counties from taking it from us. Long term we need to take advantage of being in a sparsely populated area with no traffic and beautiful land. That’s our cards to play. I wish we could do something with Humboldt bay but that doesn’t seem likely for lots of reasons.

      • yeah that’s right buzzard you tell em! divert streams, clear cut forests, dump pesticides, guard your illegal weed with vicious dogs and high power weapons, don’t pay taxes that support schools , roads etc . yeah be a scumbag!

        • The old schoolers didnt run that way???? Yep newbies from outta state n county are scumbags. Like u. Ps. I pay taxes n volunteer!

        • Buzzards right. Old school Humboldt growers were good people , cared for the community, started schools and all that. They had their flaws and the present situation is not what anyone wanted, but like they say hind-sight is 20/20! It cracks me up how everyone jumped on this legalization bandwagon and now they all want out. A fool and his money are easily parted, or something like that.

          • Thanx. They have to remember where all this started. Many dont. I do. Adapt n change. I will survive.🤠

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      Don’t forget Nevada just opened up, scratch Reno off the list.

      Getting out of debt is good advice.

      What will these stoners do when the bong is empty?

      Just as it’s been a race to the bottom on selling P’s, property value will follow the same path.

      Maybe they can move to Korea and breed pit bulls for delis?

  • Veterans friend

    The supervisors are the ones who need some cannabis education.
    We have PHDs in the subject

  • Lost Croat Outburst

    OK, State Water Board will meet in Eureka on July 20th WHERE in Eureka? Oh, ow, ouch. And what time? Ouch, oh bummer. Oh, OK, it’s on the website.

    Meanwhile, down at Bolthouse Farms outside Bako, 5000 acres are being covered with greenhouses. Blackwater has been hired to do security, and an army of farm laborers is being assembled to plant and tend 35,000,000 Indica plants, which are being cloned as we breathe, in a secret laboratory. These plants are bred to grow quickly in the brown polluted air of Kern County and the regular dirt where your Organic Baby Spinach used to thrive. Cannabis trees will soon produce 4-5 pounds of trimmed bud each, right there in the South Valley heat, 4 crops a year, nice and close to I-5 and the market in Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colarado and even Utah, not to mention the major markets in California.

    Soon, 230,000,000 Americans, and god knows how many foreigners will be able to purchase all the cheap bud they want, right down at Safeway, $25/lb, and no one will remember what a Humboldt County Bud even LOOKS like! High Times indeed!

    SO: If you want a future in Cannabis, there might be a job on a farm crew, or as a truck driver, but NOT if you are loaded!

    Believe it. It’s happening.

    • Yep they dont want bud anyways. They all want “dabs” n hash n oil n sh@t. They want the herion high and could care less for a killer organic humboldt bud. This is funny because isnt consentrats federally a class one drug no no? Next they will be shooting the stuff with needles but hey,….. its only weed man.

      Bolthouse farms? So after they retool their farm for 25$ pounds of cannabis their juice wouldn’t have made them more money?
      With all these food producers switched to cannabis sounds like a great future for new food producers.
