Calaveras MET Team Assists DFW with Marijuana Eradication

Copperopolis, CA...On 08/13/2018 Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team deputies assisted the California Department of Fish and Wildlife with the service of a warrant in the rural area of Heiser Canyon near Copperopolis. No subjects were located upon arrival. Several scientists from the California State Water Board as well as Senior Environmental Scientists from the Department of Fish and Wildlife assisted in the investigation.






517 marijuana plants were eradicated and 20 Fish and Game Code violations were observed. These violations ranged from stream alterations to several areas having trash and other deleterious substances in the waterways.

          An annual "Peeps Eating" contest is held each year at National Harbor in front of the Peeps & Company store.2017 winner, Matt Stonie of California, ate 255 Peeps in five minutes. The first such event was arranged by Shawn Sparks in 1994, and had only six participants. Dave Smith started an annual Peep Off in Sacramento after contacting a participant in the first Peep Off. Another contest in Maryland asks that participants create a diorama of a culturally important scene from the modern era, featuring a number of Peeps. The winner gets two free inflatable life jackets.[

      The obvious point is we banned cannabis and the illegal grows continue. A regulated, observable, identifiable industry from which we could have collected would have been a boon to this county. We are destined to always be a poor one because of a lack of leadership and vision.

        No. We tried the whole "let's have cultivation" game. It was a game because so many growers hid behind the medical sign while selling recreational anyway. No matter, it was a disgrace, hounded long-time and new neighbors, and even the good growers seemed to flush fertilizers into our streams and watersheds. We all are pretty o.k. with the individual allowances. Commercial or other marijuana businesses are just a no-go. The income is the only thing these folks wanted us to hear, and not the expenses, which on its face, is dishonest.

          Agree mostly. Some registered (none were actually 'legal) were actually good neighbors, grew organically, and did support the medical mj industry. The bad apples always spoil the barrel though so the good neighbor growers were punished along with the unethical ones.

          And sadly, because most registered grows were in residential neighborhoods, the neighborhoods suffered even if the growers were some of the 'good ones'. Wells run dry; ponds and creeks low or dry due to increased water extraction; odor; increased traffic by people disrespectful of the residential area; increased trash on the roadsides. UO was just a bad regulation design.

I would really be concerned with the stream diversion! Salmon have a hard time getting to their beds! Hee Hee! By the way, was this a virtual stream, or am I missing something? These guys we're really trying to disguise their operation, lucky the picture of the grow was taken with a camo module, those bushes we're well hidden! Hee Hee! Einstein

    They have torn u the ground around the seasonal streams, so when winter rolls around there is a huge amount of sediment and debris washed downstream.

    There are no toilets, so they use the creek bed. No trash service either, and likewise they dump their trash in the stream. Not to mention all the chemicals they are using. When the rains come this all ends up in the fields downstream not belonging to them.

    There are no fish ladders on any of our Dams. No Salmon are traveling up our rivers anymore. Sadly there are just a few left, land locked above Pardee.

      Butane.

      They use it to make oil so kids can vape dope.

      But, these turds use it once, then it escapes into the air , where it becomes a green house gas.

      Kill dopers on sight. Confiscate land and property involved.

      These f's happily profit from poisoning our children.

      Give them no quarter.

        Hey tough guy...I'm still down for any time, any place.

        You know that eventually we're gonna get our chance to dance, right?

        Keep up all the macho language about killing people who choose a life or lifestyle that you disagree with and we will see how long it takes before you are identified and outed (and hopefully arrested for making terrorist threats).

        Based on your continued vile posts here on this website, I promise, one day, to make a VERY public spectacle out of both your name and face.

        I certainly don't claim hero status, but I'll gladly spend my last breath on this planet working to destroy a true enemy of freedom, such as yourself...

        Actually the butane is made to distill honey/hash oil. The process is explosive. environmentally damaging, and unfortunately produces a product that some people prefer.The problem is advocates will say that they process in other ways. This is still preferred by so many and is just crazy dangerous.

What did you people who voted for legalizing marijuana expect?
You can blame your Governor and anyone who voted for growing it legally. Of course our last BOS had started the ball rolling.

      No. Voting to legalize doesn't mean we have to grow it here. These are two very
      different concepts. A community can accept marijuana without having it growing and causing safety and other issues all over the place, Where do you keep your cash? Can't deposit it. Can't start an account. Not good,

      First the majority of Calaveras voters voted NO on legalizing marijuana. With that said it did pass correct however it also states each County can decide their own policy regulate, ban ect. Calaveras county has decided to BAN commercial marijuana. So it is illegal to grow more than 6 plants.

        Merita Callaway wants more commercial marijuana here. She doesn't care about anything else. She can't list any accomplishments in her 20-plus years. She will drag this county down again if elected.

          Obviously that's not the case. They were eradicated last year and still came back and still didn't get caught. Only plants removed but no fines, no arrest Hmm. They probably have a handful of other grows growing right now, they don't care about this one being busted. Illegals are still making money. They will be back for sure again next year. It don't Matter to illegals. The only thing this ban has done is hurt the locals that were making a living, the illegals don't care either way. Thanks Calaveras. Screw over locals while the crimals florish. Registered locals are in huge debt due to the county's crocked ways, yet marijuana is still here, crimals get to make money and local hardworking families put out of work and made homeless. I just love this county. Used to have my heart in this place. But now I see the corruption over and over.
