Re: “Not Even From Around Here

Great article! Ain't none of us really "from" around there, unless we are part Mattole, Weott, Sinkyone, etc. When I moved to Salmon Creek in 1992 I had no idea it was pot central; just trying to live free, grow food and get water out of the ground. I feel fortunate to have happened to get an interest in the parcel through which the Stansberry road leads down from Wilder Ridge. Haven't had the pleasure of living there or meeting many of the neighbors yet. I hope to meet you someday!

Re: “Not Even From Around Here

Good job. "..the main problem isn't the who, but the what." Great line when referring to the industry we all love but hate at the same time.

Re: “Growing Pains

Consider alcohol regulations, which require public notices on storefronts and additional notice to neighbors for on- and off-site sale applications. The argument that some growers may be placed at risk is countered by the equally compelling argument that non-growers have a right to know about commercial operations in their neighborhoods that may impact them very directly. As a recovering journalist, I'll come down on the side of the public's right to know every time.

If people are serious about wanting to come into the light ... well, guess what: Public records are public for assorted good reasons. Business licenses, CUP applications, court filings, delinquent taxes, irate emails to board members and/or county staff ... all very much public record, as will be your state licensing status. Commercial cannabis licensing and personal privacy rights are mutually exclusive concepts. You can choose one or the other, but not both.

Re: “NOMRL

Love Laura and her sense of humor. Sometimes humor is the path. We all just gave a huge sigh of relief to see her caption read "Relax; it's photoshop."

Re: “NOMRL

Welcome to our future! They are going to need a lot more fight! In case ya haven't noticed, our whole county is voluntarily being sold out and bought up by big city interests/"investors" and pot growers. They don't give a damn for preserving our beautiful and Quiet rural way of life. They are nasty greedy outsiders coming here to make money, in the process will destroy everything until it looks like any other big city full of concrete and asphalt.
