    it is a big big problem treatening whole watersheds with poisons of all sorts, including the threats from the gangs and cartels as well as greedy growers guarding the crops from other criminals.

    None of it is cool or funny or

    acrerage wise, not enough to notice.
    google earth east of Eureka/Arcata. That isn't the world's biggest concentration of tomato growers. Those are clear cuts as well.

      River, and are probably taking more than the legal rightsholders. I can pull some references for that if anyone wants.

      In the north coast area, the problem with pot isn't intoxication. It's illegal growers who spill diesel into creeks and clearcut and leave caches and spills of nasty, toxic herbicides, and huge deposits of trash when they're done. All this washes into the river, where the salmon live, or try to live.

      There are people up here lovingly and responsibly growing organic pot for medicinal and other uses on their own land. I don't really have a problem with that; I'd like to see it legalized, so that they can do their work in peace alongside the grape growers. But the people who take and grow on other people's land, including public lands, are uniformly bad news and create big problems.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
