An Open Letter To Calaveras County Board of Supervisors ~ David Tunno

Valley Springs, CA...You are faced with a decision that you, and the County, has been fretting over for more than a year. A decision, at least for elected leaders, is quite simple. You took oaths to uphold federal law. Marijuana, and everything on the Calaveras County list having to do with marijuana, including money laundering, is against federal law.



It’s against federal law even if the feds don’t adequately enforce the law.

It’s against federal law even if the legislature in Sacramento usurped power they didn’t have, and that other entities have done likewise.

It’s against federal law regardless of the financial implications for this county, good or bad.

It’s against federal law even if the people wanted it here, which they don’t.

It’s against federal law even if you can get away with breaking it.

None of the above facts empower you to ignore the law and your oaths, nor does the notion you’ve been presented with; “the times, they are a changing.”

You have heard faux arguments connecting this issue with the U.S. Constitution, but at no time have those proponents cited any law, any Supreme Court decision, or any Article of the Constitution that permits a county Board of Supervisors to interpret federal law, or circumvent it, or determine its constitutionality. You haven’t seen it because it doesn’t exist. No disrespect, but that’s not your job and you have no rights in that regard. If the law changes, it changes in Congress, or in the Supreme Court, not in the Calaveras County Board room.

Not only have you not acquired any rights due to decisions in Sacramento, you have not acquired any rights due to decisions be the former Board. You have not acquired any rights due to the fact that marijuana has been around a long time and has been grown in the backwoods of this county for a long time. While those facts may be relevant to a broad discussion of the issue for some other purpose, they are not relevant to your decision.

Much of what you have heard has to do with arguments over whether marijuana is good medicine. All those hours of testimony on that subject are completely irrelevant to your decision. The people in our system of government who are empowered to decide that issue have decided it and will continue to review it based on scientific procedures their protocols require them to follow. That’s their job, not yours.

I said this is simple and it is. I didn’t say “easy,” but I’m sure you agree that is also irrelevant. The simplicity is embedded in the fact that the only decision you have the right to make is to ban everything the State allows you to ban, and not to go further is only impractical because we as a county cannot afford to fight the state in court over the balance of those activities.

Why are your oaths and the law being treated like elephants in the room? When we citizens elect officials to represent us, the very least we should be able to expect is that they uphold their oath and not break the law. When did that become too much to ask?

You are wrong Mr. Tunno....The county while there may be federal law has absolutely no interest in, or resources from the federal government In dealing with this urgent Issue. The federal government has abrogated any standing In the Issue due to this decades long estrangement between Its responsibilities and Its practical enforcement. So thanks to the wonderful federal government and the growers our small county Is left with the tremendous task of dealing with the Issue. Mr. Tunno. I suggest Its time for you to step out of your Pollyanna birthday suit and put your
shoulders to providing constructive, practical dialogue to the Issue at hand.

      Actually, the state of CA made it legal for personal use, not just medicine, so your position is wrong.

      Pot is here; it is also legal in many other states.

      It is going to be grown in CA 'legally' as of January 2018.

      Best to use zoning laws on our books re: agriculture zoning, and let it be grown here, where ag zoning allows....which is not residential, or even rural residential.

        Well you are partially correct. Counties and cities have a right to ban commercial cultivation while of course personal use is o.k. The "pot is here" argument is moot.

      Trust me, the so called HIPPIES are business people. With very high standards in non moldy and non Pesticides in or around there plants. If you know people like your saying look in the mirror. Plant testing is real and done on a Scientific and medical professional level. Please get your fax straight before you step on your tongue.

      The Federal Government grows marijuana and gives it to medical patients.
      And there is a federal tax stamp for Marijuana. Marijuana was made illegal because of the dupont family. The only reason why cocaine was made illegal is because there is more money in caffeine. It was and is all ways about money.

Citing the federal law in regards to county decisions has always seemed weird to me. County supervisors shouldn't be looking any further than the state. Let the state government worry about the federal government. Fordhal doesn't enforce immigration law. It just s smoke screen because they don't "approve".

      Regulate the good growers so we can have the resources to get rid of the bad ones. It is that simple.
      Place commercial grows in areas where the neighbors are happy with them and tax them.
      The growers are making money and want to be protected by the law.
      They also have paid their taxes this year. Those growers who paid their taxes should be the first to be given permits for Commercial Cultivation.
      A total ban will not work! Cannabis has been grown here for over 40 years!
      Wake up and be sensible.

Some of us know the affects
what alcohol has on our lives and those around us. I don't think
celebrating alcohol, inviting people up to our community to drink
and party and throw celebrations all revolving around your precious
beverage puts a very good example to our children. You're hell bent
on stopping cultivation of marijuana but you have no problem of what
alcohol does to innocent people of your favorite high, drink or
what you may claim is a way of relaxing.

I'm not a grower BUT this county gave a green light for cultivation.

Many of these "growers" put a lot of money into their business,
even their life savings, now you want to yank everything from under their feet? Sorry, I don't think that's the correct way.
The state gave personal use to the people, as many states did. Our County gave medical marijuana cultivation to nearly 700 businesses, now they should be given their chance for that business.
Your elected officials gave the green light to these people, and
their families, maybe hastily without the proper guidelines, now
our elected officials need to correct the problems associated
with this business, not make 700 businesses/families go bankrupt.

Thank you

PS If you think someone is growing illegally call
law enforcement, take pictures if possible of people, cars, but don't get in harms way.

      For what? For talking out of both sides of his face? I might respect him if he just said he does not like marijuana and wants it banned, but using federal law and the oath of office the supervisors took? Let me remind you he also took an oath of office to uphold the law. Do you think he ever went over the speed limit? Do you think he ever got behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking alcohol? Has he ever been arrested in this or any other state? If it yes to any of these then he may have violated his oath of office also (he was sworn in as a p.c.). Our country has a long history of reacting to laws that are not keeping up with the future, from the real tea party to liquor prohibition. I am not neccessarily fond of pot, but it is here, and is not going away. So many states have recognized its use in one form or another that no matter how excited Sessions gets it is not going away. Regulate this stuff, get it out of neighborhoods, limit how much can be cultivated in the county, and keep large corporations out of it. If you give this angry man credibility then you are making a mistake.

    This is beyond unfortunate that some put their life savings into a temporary ordinance. It is a gamble of great consequence. Did the growers not know that the UO was not meant to be permanent? Did the families who have cultivated here for more than 20 years rationalize to their families that working at an illegal occupation for cash only is really o.k.? Did the applicants not realize they did in fact sign an indemnification agreement? This is not speculation. This is gambling where the stakes are known and are umistakenly steep.

      Exactly, these are start up businesses (I hate to call them a business). Not every business has the right to succeed, nor do they. These pot dealers took a risk, and they knew it. We all know it is against Federal Law, even the pot growers. With all the money (cash) they have I am sure their high powered lawyers told them if the Feds have the will, they may have to close their doors. Pray to God that AG Sessions helps us, as he promised.

Hear, hear! Well put. Our county is being railroaded by bottom of the barrel scumbag criminals whose sole desire is to profit by peddling poison to our children.

They care nothing for our county, its environment, nor its lawful citizens.

They have brought us robberies and murder. They have operated hazardous drug labs in our neighborhoods without regard to the health and safety of the residents. The brazenly dump the toxic waste in plan view in town and high school. They have injected banned poisons into our environment and water ways. They steal water and power.

Lord only knows how many other crimes go undocumented via shoot, shovel, and shut up!

They brandish weapons and threaten their neighbors. They bully if you dare speak up for what is right. They are chronic, self-delusional, sociopathic liars trying to justify their criminal behavior as somehow helping some helpless group. But in the end it's a simple reality. They trade green poison for green backs. They will run over anyone who gets in their way.

It is time for the county to stand with the good people and take every means to eradicate these vermin with extreme prejudice.

Remember the broken window concept. If you tolerate crime, then it will multiply without limit.

As for the costs, a penalty of running a criminal enterprise includes forfeiture of I'll begotten gain, and any and all assets utilized by the enterprise.

This includes, but should not be limited to: cash, land, vehicles, equipment, and fire arms. The proceeds will amply pay for enforcement costs.

This would also extend to complicit land lords.

End this insanity now. Banish the dopers and run them out of the county!

      Criminal scumbags are NOT good citizens. You have issues. Sober up and free you mind. Life is good and you do not need to slide through doped out of your gourd.

      BTW, poppies grow well here too. So does cocoa. Some people use them and
      derivatives for medicine. Other people use them against the weak for profit.
      Shall we throw the doors open to them too? Just ask North Carolina what those scumbags are like.

      Look at the racketeers the feds just busted in Colorado. Evil will not play by any rules you set. Ban them and burn them on sight.

Here is Justice Scalia on a Supreme Court decision in New York explaining dual sovereignty. And how the federal government can not impose federal regulation upon states!

“We held in New York that Congress cannot compel the States to enact or enforce a federal regulatory program. Today we hold that Congress cannot circumvent that prohibition by conscripting the States’ officers directly. The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. It matters not whether policy making is involved, and no case by case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty."

In 1932, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis described the beauty of the Tenth Amendment this way: "A state may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.”

    Thank you for a legal rebuttal.

    It is disappointing when persons provide only the component of law that supports their position. We, as citizens, need to know and understand all the law on an issue in order to formulate a solid opinion for / against a particular position.

    Bill, David, and others frequently position themselves as though they are speaking for all of the non-growing community. While many of us non-growers do have issues with the current situation, many of us all feel a total ban is not needed. There needs to be a compromise: Like no grows in any type of residential zoning. Let a commercial enterprises be in a commercial zone.

    Hopefully our BoS, legal council, planning, environmental health, sheriff's office, etc. can come up with a viable regulation that allows growers to exist in our county without disrupting the lives of residents.

This county is so screwed no matter your position on cannabis. Ban it and there will be the ensuing lawsuits, something we have neither the budget nor manpower to accomplish. And then there is the underground criminal element or not so criminal element in the form of every other organic restaurant or ag farmer that has their row or two. Plus there are the Mexican cartels destroying our forests and ground water. Second position - don't ban but instead regulate resulting in millions for the coffer for an industry already here and which we have perhaps five years before the state steps in to make some significant capital, in a county rapidly losing employment and income... oh, wait - there is no downside to a regulated industry.

      Not to change the subject, but I found that very offensive about someone's remark on the Red Hill Dump article. Whoever posted these "countless" amount of pictures of Trump ought to just leave this country. This is America, this is our president and if you don't like him, just leave! Whoever did this is very disrespectful and unpatriotic. I'm surprised the admin. hasnt taken this off yet.

      Some of them will shoot each other during future robberies and thefts, hope they don't miss and hit a innocent neighbor.

Thank you, David, and all who have worked so diligently to rid our county of the commercial marijuana scourge.

Mr. Tunno is absolutely right, our state and local government have completely over-stepped their authority and are in direct violation of federal law. Any elected official that took an oath of office that supports the blatant violation of federal law should be removed from office. No matter how you feel about weed, the fact remains that we are a nation that supposedly functions under the rule of law. There's a legislative process to amend the laws, the pro-weed zealots should be required to follow it or face the consequences.

David Tunno's plea to our BOS
Posted on: 2017-07-01 22:34:49   By: Anonymous
 
Thank you David Tunno for speaking up. The FDA has not approved Marijuana as a Medicine, and your Ban would have passed if Bob B. had not sued you, and had it removed form the Ballot. The irony of it is he actually gets up in front of the Board of Supervisors and says he wishes the people could vote on the ban> Really, then why did he work so hard to stop the Ban? I guess those who like drugs don't see clearly. Board of Supervisors ban this stuff, so we can get unto things that really matter in our County!

    While I do not agree with Mr. Tunno's views on the supremacy clause many of the comments directed at him are entirely unacceptable. Mr. Tunno is a decorated combat veteran who has served the people of California in some capacity for decades. I have personally known him since I was an adolescent and can attest that he has always done what he believes to be right. Though my own views about the legalization of marijuana differ from his those who disagree with him should focus on the arguments he makes without resorting to personal attacks on the man. W. Hackett, attorney and counselor at law
