  • Freaking awesome!
    I am so happy that the MET did not forget the mattole valley.

    Thank you for your hard work to clean out the mattole valley of criminals.

    Just think how many gallons of water over a whole season that will now be able to flow in the mattole river for the salmon.

    Smokers are jokers and users are losers!

    Later cheat growers!

    The eye in the sky is real- I have seen what they see on their satellite imagery. It’s fucking real and very precise and up to date. Very troubling for our civil liberties.
    Also, anyone trying to pull off big illegal grows are idiots. If the sun is shining on it, they are watching it. The amount of money it takes to monitor vs. the amount of money they pull in makes it very profitable to watch us all.
    The game has grown old, the deck has gone cold.

  • Well what do you have to do to get arrested??? Anyone??? What? Growing pot without a permit, lots of guns, shitty pills for sale… Nope takes more than that… Shit show.

  • They shut down a one stop shop. Pot to relax you and ruin your motivation and meth to pick you back up! And prescription pills, likely opioids in case you are feeling any pain! All the paraphernalia you need for an additional nominal fee. An addict’s best friend! Glad they got it all off the market!

    • Here’s a pot story you may understand because you worked for MediCal.

      Sure, weed can relax you, and stuff high in myrcene will keep you on the couch. But it’s also a quality-of-life issue for many.

      My state-paid-for prescriptions cost tax payers OVER $100,000 when I was on SSI.

      I did a risk-benefit analysis and replaced ALL of my meds including morphine with cannabis.

      Cannabis allowed me to save approximately $10,000 per year that tax payers previously had to cover.

      Amotivational syndrome is primarily a sedating terpene issue.

  • and how is it these crack heads didn’t get find for growing without a permit, water diversion, trash, polution, nothing, what did MET’S other cronies(fish&game,waterboard,etc)decide to practice social distanceing when they heard it was crack heads and they couldn’t get anything out of them anyway and then tomorrow they will go down the road and bust mom and pop and then everybody shows up they all through in there own bullshit fines they know nobody can afford, ruin perfectly good peoples lives, let the crack heads run free and ruin more lives, are law enforcement is tainted and everybody knows this, even them.

  • With liberty and justice for all

    Crack heads calling it exactly the way it is, theives for supervisors, and theives and extortionists for law enforcement

  • No $10,000 a day fines?

  • Start naming the owners of parcels where giant grows are being cited. Those egregious situations demand as much public shaming as those whose names appear because they are actually cited on the spot. (I guess we aren’t arresting people and actually processing them at the jail because of Covid-19?)

  • unbridlled philistine

    Wow! Cite and release! Really crazy, Nows the time to be a criminal…. Such a sad place our country is at.

  • Since there were 15 unarmed black men killed by police last year it makes me wonder how many unarmed black men were killed by drug dealers. Don’t forget to include those who died from the drugs since technically the drug dealers killed them through their products. If it’s at least 15 then all drug dealers are racist according to what all police are being accused of.

  • Yet another POS NOT arrested for Meth sales, weapons, illegal grow etc. Actually I believe the sheriffs deputies are required to make the arrest and didn’t. Shows they have turned their backs on the law also like the criminals. Guess their all the same same. Lets let China Phuk us and let all the criminals out.

    I don’t trust our government. Also, Screw You, China! The Viral Lab in Wuhan China should be vaporized. They published a wikipedia article 6 years ago stating they spliced the corona, sars and bat gene sequence together to make a potent weapon. Read up, America. We’ve been had….
