      Mountain Ranch is a mess due to all this out-of-control commercial production of pot and it ain't all for medicinal purposes, most going to the streets from here to the east coast for recreational purposes and it is a gateway drug!
      Some of our kids are now pot-heads and who know where that will lead? Properties up here look like crap and will soon smell like crap and just take a look at the people coming and going from this county, draws a very odd and sometimes scary type of individuals. Code violations, holy crap!!! Do the right thing and make this go away, not a good thing in any respect.

        Why do the growers get away with so many RV's? Many of these RV's are not here because they were victims of the fire, its their temporary residence until they collect their cash, they have no real roots in the county. Where are they dumping their sewage???

All cannabis is commercial. What you want is regulated cannabis. Regulated cannabis has benefits for the county from jobs to environment to law enforcement and code enforcement from the windfall of taxes. Illegal commercial cannabis operations should be the focus along with cleaning up the ordinance in RR zones.

            Ban it, then raid raid raid and start confiscating and selling off the properties to more than offset the costs related to enforcement. Many with vested interest in this county want it gone. Many who grow have no long term vested interest in this county other than the quick and easy green, they will leave after the ban---thank God!!! Problem is they will leave a incredible mess and lots of damage to the environment.

              Seize property? Are you insane? Not legal, not constitutional, and nowhere near the amount of lawyers in this county to handle this kinda of litagation. The airport grow the sheriff busted already cost this county a million and a half dollars in restitution (could have been 16 if not settled) do you really think busting hundreds of "compliant grows" is safe for this county financially? I'm not sure you've put much thought into this other than how much you hate the "riff raft" it brings in or the smell that irritates you. Well not all of us are fans of the snooty wine os or the stinky cow farms but none of us are meddling in your business. Regulate and enforce NO BAN

              Tofanelli doesn't even wait til the meeting is over, packs up early. Makes sense, has to get back to work in his business that isn't even in this county it's in Stockton. That's why he's for no growth, no jobs and no money, he doesn't want this county to grow or prosper.

        The previous supervisors got an enormous amount of work done, this new group wants to stop everything including our General Plan which is right there ready to be finalized but it probably won't happen because of the campaign promise Tofanelli made to "My Valley Springs", a big time leftist group, to destroy it no matter how much it costs us all county wide.

            Please post when you are sober, that way your spelling will not suffer. Is there someone in your house that can supervise your computer access? Your buddy is part of a board that has accomplished zip. They say they have three votes, so why don't they just ban the stuff? What cat fight? They are not getting anything done and we should not expect them to. Do any of the three have a legislative agenda? What they may do is plunge this county into massive law suits. You really need to stay off the net, it shows how ignorant and uninformed you really are. You better hope this board does not have to deal with the issues the last board did or we will be in real trouble. Or have you forgotten things like a catastrophic fire, the Urgency Ordinance, Planning Commission racial comments, untimely passing of our Sheriff, etc. etc. etc. How you can support someone that actively has tried to dismantle programs for seniors and veterans is beyond me, but, you are the great and powerful contemplator. You are part of the problem in this county and I wish you would either shut up or pack up.

Oliveira is useless.....he is worthless just like perforated toilet paper. He lost control of the meeting when the nut case guitar player came to the podium. He could care less about the respect the BOS should get as well as embarrassing the other BOS with his approval and clapping...not suppose to clap right Oliveria...is that not the rule? Oliveria made the board room a laughing joke once again. Step down as chair and let someone who has respect for the position take over. Oliveria...your a disgusting piece of crap the way you control board meetings!

    Oliveira is a good chair and faced with very difficult odds. I hope he stays the course and I will vote for him again and respect his comments and decisions. He is impartial and focused. Try and sit up there, study all the issues etc.

      Oliveria is so pro pot and one sided if he turned sideways you could not see him.
      Oliver'ia and county council are favouring the pot heads and growers.
      Oliver'ia is a continuation of Cliff Edson stupidity

        God doesn't think he is Cliff Edson.

    Oliviera is the adult in the room. It's not surprising that you rabid banners hate him lately. As a D3 resident, I didn't vote for him in 2014 but I would now.

    You mean your pal Mills? Don't worry, he'll pull a power trip, knifing Olivera in the process and rise to chair of the board. He'll add another scalp to his collection. Lets see, stabbed Jack in the back, threw county department heads and their workers under the bus. Knifing Mills is the next logical step.
