Are these folks still kicking the cannabis ball up and down the court? Put out to a simple vote of registered voters in the county.

      The people and registered voters of this country should never be allowed to determine whether commercial cannabis should be legal in our county.

      This is too important of a decision and should be left to smart people like Jack, Merita, Dennis, Ben and Gary.

        Au-contraire-if it gets to that point the PEOPLE need to vote on it and we all know that the ban will still exist after that also! After what happened with all that French Gulch fracas last year, you think the Feds aren't watching this county? I'm sure they are! They and other government agencies are watching very closely. Now I hear that the whole funding from the taxes on recreational marijuana isn't all that good. I wonder why? Probably because a lot of counties and cities don't want dispensaries and/or cultivation going on. Hmm-very interesting! Think about it folks.

          Funny, try this on for size. If the board can vote to ban it's A okay, but not if its overturned? Then it needs a vote? You don't even realize how fukin stupid and contradictory your comment is. Must be stupid steven r strange or his girlfriend alice the dumbocrat of confusion.

            The people have been asking for it to be put to vote since before the ban. Oh ya the commercial marijuana attorneys put a shop to it over a minor loop hole in wording because they know what the out come of a vote would be and it would be permanent. No more voting in board members who vote you can sway. PUT IT TO A VOTE lets see what the people of Calaveras county truly want in our community.

    Good. Keep keeping that marijuana ball down the court. It could have been that someone would profit except for the California regulations that now all but guarantee no small growers can survive. Waste of time.

    If most of your day is spent in the darkness, your eyes will slowly begin to adjust, severely favoring the darkness (and even having adverse reactions when exposed to significant, or for what is considered to be minimal, amounts of light), this is a known physiological adaption

    We also know that animals in general, of which includes people, adapt over time to their environment, to elements that consistently they are exposed to. That skin, hair, and fur adapts to the temperatures of the locale, even the seasons, is likewise extremely known.

    So, knowing this, would it surprise anyone that long-term exposure to a brain-chemistry altering drug could have significant negative effects, health concerns, and both physiological and psychological collateral damage?

    Whether or not we argue that something should be legal, we should be predominantly concerned about not just the ethicality of it, not all things that are bad are illegal, but on the extent of harm that it would cause in not only the legalizing of it, but the backing by governmental entities of it. It is well accepted that traditional smoking, drinking, both have significant long-term side effects, which lead to a cadre of interconnected health issues, from respiratory and digestional tract related concerns (teeth, tongue, mouth, throat, lungs, stomach, etc.), to a heightened risk of pulmonary-respiratory issues (heart attacks, breathing troubles), and even linked strongly with several kinds of cancer, as well as organ failures.

    Drinking soda rots your teeth, literally, and in some cases it can cause damage to these same regions (though at a comparatively reduced rate to the above), and is linked to issues with the digestive system, as well as obesity, etc. Soda is not banned by the government however, and there are similar substances that are likewise not banned.

    However, the predominant difference between Soda, or even Smoking and Drinking, to Marijuana usage, is that the government is substantially prevented from encouraging Drinking and Smoking (lots of health laws passed around those), yet the instant that they saw the capability to make large profit sells on Soma, I mean Marijuana, they jumped on it. There were no genuine suggestions or efforts by the legislators that encouraged such moves, to fund full investigations and research into the cause, to verify for the health of the public, that no concern is warranted, nope, they immediately went into plans that are still illegal federally to provide it.

    -

    Go read Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, it is almost 90 years old at this point, but might be enlightening on the subject of Soma, and why I was referring to it.
