Just a gentle reminder for those that think an outright ban is still the right way to go. The new Gold Rush is here and looking more and more like Calaveras will miss this (revenue) train as well. You might also note that the protests happening to our north against marijuana cultivation (and organized by government officials) really have their roots in Yuba County failing to put regulations in place, encouraging an underground, black market economy.

    Just a gentle reminder for those that think The new Gold Rush is here.
    The Boom has fizzled, the supply has exceeded demand and with legal personal use home grows the "Get Rich Quick" dream is over.
    What used to sell for $14,400 is now less than $400, in fact, People are giving away bags o' bud.

    Sorry to dampen your wick, but while you may still get your rush, the gold is gone.

        Bad Business Decisions 101:

        Mike Tyson Has a New Business, a 40-Acre Marijuana Farm
        by WARNER TODD HUSTON 3 Jan 2018

        Mike Tyson has been a boxer and even tried his hand at acting, but now he has a new venture: pot farmer.
        Tyson has reportedly broken ground on a 40-acre pot farm in California City, California, the New York Daily News reported.

        Indeed, the plans for Tyson’s facility are quite ambitious. Half the land will be used to grow pot, but the rest will be put to a variety of uses. According to reports, the rest of the land will go to a “hydro-feed plant and supply store, an extraction facility, an edible factory, premium ‘glamping’ campgrounds and cabins and an amphitheater.”

        The plans come on the heels of the state’s new law legalizing recreational use of marijuana.

        Tyson has had problems with marijuana before. In 2000 he was fined $200,000 by boxing authorities for testing positive for pot and in his memoirs he mentioned that he often used tricks to get around testing requirements. He also said he was using pot during his 2007 arrest for possession of cocaine.

      If it didn't come across, that was my reference to Calaveras's train leaving the station.

    I disagree if we ban cultivation it stops.As of right now if a lab tests the product and the product fails for mold or fungus guess where the weed is going ???Its going to the BLACK MARKET.
    A ban will never stop all the growing here but atleast then there will be money from fines and property forfeitures when caught.
    Stop the BS and realise we dont want the noise,rude people, smells,lies, and mistruth that all these jobs come here.More like homelessness and garbage.

        Many of these growers are very rude and threatening 'cause they think the Sheriff will do nothing to them.

The island of Barbados offers visitors a tropical getaway like no other thanks to its perfect climate, unique culture and fine beaches that are among the best in the world.
        Beat the heat in the development’s communal freeform swimming pool surrounded by tropical gardens, or if you wish to cool off in privacy, go for a dip in the private plunge pool on the villa’s terrace—this space also features an alfresco dining area, perfect for a casual night in. Extra amenities include on-site staff like a cook and maid six days a week.
        This air-conditioned home is warmly decorated, and offers views of the sea from the living and dining area.

        During your stay at Old Trees, you’ll be only steps away from the stunning Paynes Bay beach, where you can choose to sunbathe on its golden sands on a lounge chair, swim with the turtles, or try out a new water sport.
