Please ban it, too many first aid calls on scanner related to young kids ill from marijuana, either by ingesting it to smoking it.

    Look at the paper, listen to the scanner and drive around Mountain Ranch and view many of the growers, enough to make you want to move. These people are not all good people. Listen to them talk when you are shopping at Sender's, they think they can get away with anything and have very negative feelings towards us who don't want it around. Many don't like other growers either, too much competition they say.
    BOS, are you listening? Sheriff, please keep up the raids.
    Please re-visit more farms that have appealed and won, they are not playing by the rules.

      Don't Ban Commercial Cultivation of cannabis. Regulated it and allow people to grow it. The taxes can improve the quality of life for us ALL.
      More bike paths, more community services.
      Tax and regulate it.

        Bike paths, meet your dealer there and buy some pot!
        Bike crashes galore with all the stoned kids and non-grown-ups riding their probable stolen bikes. Oh wait, all this pot is for medical use, I'm sorry? Yeah right!

Regulate and Tax it.
Posted on: 2017-09-26 07:51:23   By: Anonymous
 
Cannabis is always going to be grown in our County.
Why not Issue permits, regulate it and tax it.
Then we can all benefit from it, even those of us who don't consume it.
Then the Tax revenue can be used to benefit ALL of us.
Much like the Wine Industry. Everyone can benefit from the business, taxes produced and you don't have to consume it.

Commercial vs Medical
Posted on: 2017-09-26 09:23:47   By: Anonymous
 
It seems this is about banning the 1/2 acre 'commercial' farms that have sprung up all around us. If someone still wants to grow, it would seem they can go back to growing the 99 plants allowed for medical cultivation. This is allowed under existing federal law.

The county can tax growers on the 99 plants. The county coffers can still have revenues from growers. We have a measure on the books that provides for taxation. Granted, some revision will be needed because current tax structure is based on the acreage in the UO application. 99 plants take up much less space than the 1000 plants the growers are cramming into their 1/2 acre allocation.

It is not unreasonable to ban commercial cultivation at this time. The previous BoS rushed in and approved the UO. This industry can always be revisited in the future and planned out more effectively to reduce/eliminate the impact on residential neighborhoods. Why not wait for the State to get it's regulations and a track and trace system in place? Then Calaveras can again consider commercial cultivation.
