Re: “Better Than Status Quo, Prop 64 Protects Us All

John 1, those polls specifically asked about prop 64 and not the general question of "do you support marijuana legalization, yes or no?" You can try to deny that all you want as prohibitionists often do end up resorting to denial. This law is just as good and in some ways better than the 4 legalization laws already approved and will also greatly weaken the federal prohibition as well. I'm not listening to the "wait for a better law" line that is almost a decade old now and will also be around again the next time a chance to legalize would come along. The only regrettable thing here is maintaining prohibition and allowing the failed policy of prohibition to continue on instead of weakening it.

Polls that specifically ask about prop 64:

Re: “Better Than Status Quo, Prop 64 Protects Us All

Worst "legalization" scheme ever pushed at California! And pushed this time by a team of cannabis hating Big Wigs...Dr Donald The Lying Man Lyman and Newsom both detest cannabis and consider daily smokers as the addicts this type of legalization will cure. Newsom's fantasy is that his young daughter can grow up in California and never have to smell Marijuana...not he promotes this Legal-Lies 64 bs. Is anyone really paying attention? Guess we'll know in 3 weeks.

Re: “Vote No for a Safer Community

Wow this letter is filled with nonsense. These arguments have been debunked for years, and even if they were true, it still doesn't mean cannabis should remain illegal for adults. Its as if these guys don't realize cannabis has been used for decades in Humboldt. It isn't being introduced now.
The reason there is crime around cannabis is because its illegal. Many of those problems go away in a regulated market. Of course it would also mean Humboldt will need a whole lot less cops. That is why these police are afraid of the change.
There is no place that has re-legalized cannabis that is ever going to go back. States are making millions of dollars. Humboldt has the potential to be the Napa Valley of cannabis. Even if this law isn't perfect, it will keep thousands of people from being hassled for a victimless crime. It will free up police to worry about real crime. It will make your county millions of dollars. It will keep more cannabis away from children then what we have now.It will create a new industry that will employ thousands of people. Vote YES.

Re: “Better Than Status Quo, Prop 64 Protects Us All

Silly me, I thought you were going to represent 2 Different points of view in this article.
Other than one sentence in the 4th paragraph, where you said you respect those concerns.
There seems to be only one point of view in this story and it is that of someone who is in favor of Prop 64 !

You may see these so called "Polls" showing 60% support, let me tell you what that is all about, there is 60% or more support for Legalization, not for Prop 64.
WAIT CALIFORNIA WE CAN DO BETTER, THIS INITIATIVE IS GARBAGE, There are already several more initiatives written by people who are actualy part of the Cannabis Community, not a bunch of corporate lawyers, which is Obviously who wrote this one !

Re: “Better Than Status Quo, Prop 64 Protects Us All

The main point is that cannabis has been illegal about 40 years too long. Cannabis should be grown on farmland, by businesspersons, freely traded, widely available, cheap, and taxed. Anyone wishing to grow their own, should be able to do so.
Prohibition has fostered so many local problems, and crimes against persons and the environment, which escalate every year in severity, in a county ill equipped and underfunded to deal with ANY social issue, crime, drugs or mental health.
Legal weed will cause some economic shock, but the quality of Humboldt weed and the cache of our boutique pot will not be reduced. The products of our county, with local control and compliance, could enjoy worldwide status and distribution. The Humboldt brand will continue to set the standard, our growers will be respected, and our identity will not be challenged by anyone, anywhere. Legalization will put pride in your product, while filtering out the pirates. The end result will be to legitimize your services and products, and put them permanently into the actual economy. The value is there, develop the market! Go forward without fear!

Re: “Vote V!

Ms. Mosher’s letter is full of inaccuracies and purposely misleading omissions. Remember, Ms. Mosher — a non-retired business owner — has a vested interest in not telling the truth because she financially benefits if Measure V passes.

MISLEADING OMISSION: 90 municipalities have ordinances.
FACT: 447 don’t have any form of rent control and 17 jurisdictions have actually rescinded their rent control ordinances in recent years! AND over the past ten years, 13 Northern California cities and counties have considered rent control and officially rejected it, including neighboring Lake County and Mendocino County.

INACCURATE: Carson taxpayers are paying nothing for rent control.
FACT: Carson continues to pay expensive lawyers to appeal their devastating $7.4 million rent control judgement. Every day they fight to prop up their failing rent control program, their legal bills mount exponentially. Money that could be spent on services for the community.

MISLEADING OMISSION: $6500 is a paltry sum to preserve affordable housing.
FACT: $6500 is only the start as Measure V caps the $5 tax charged to mobile home owners. This deficit will only increase. If a park owner asks for a hearing from the county, the county has to pay for that lawyer. On top of that, if the park owner wins, the “losing” residents have to pay all the expenses incurred by the park owner for this hearing and all will have their rents raised as ordered by the Hearing Officer.

INACCURATE: Arcata study, as well as others, show that ordinances are effective.
FACT: Economist after economist agree that rent control is not the right answer. Study after study, including the Arcata study, show that rent control will hurt the neediest and poorest residents among us.

The fact is that rent control is not needed in Humboldt County. Especially not in the form of Measure V.

To get even more facts, please visit and Vote NO On Measure V.

Re: “Closed

Man what a "downer" of an opinion. I can't believe all is lost and I won't stop trying as long as I'm physically able to help contribute something to my community. Flat roof buildings are a challenge to maintain. The houses and apartment buildings in other cities have successfully achieved their construction for hundreds of years. But they do need constant attention more than conventional roofing. The Vet building isn't beyond repair at this point. I hope it can be reborn as a tribute to our veterans and a continuing center for our community.

Re: “Closed

I am sad to see another unintelligible rant from the chronically depressed, sick and stoned correspondent chronicling the mournful, sad decay in Goobsterdam. Right up the street from the disgusting veteran's hall, which should have been torn down decades ago, is the reprehensible Jerold Phelps Hospital-like structure, which should be closed and have an orange fence erected around it!
Goobsterdam is nothing more than a dead town inhabited by pot farmers, and operated by the remaining businessmen who moved out long ago. This little burg has nothing, is nothing, and probably will never recover. Even Cedarville and Portola and Hoopa have better medical facilities! Goobsterdam has had nothing new built in the last 50 years, with the possible exception of the Motels-which have become drug supermarkets and where no thinking person would stay...
The funniest part is that Goobsterdam is always whining about needing help! The folks in this town hate outsiders vehemently, and Goobstedam is one of the most provincial, xenophobic, paranoid and hostile places I have ever been. If it wasn't so crazy there, I would call it a small hole containing extreme conservatism. They paint themselves as hippies but they are really Republicans! All the folks there want is for you to come and spend some money (CASH ONLY!) and then leave.
John, your essay says to me "burn down the Veteran's Hall and Humboldt County will have to build us a new one". This is a dangerous viewpoint, but typical of the thinking of the disabled pot growers in Humboldt County.
Come to think of it, Garberville is a less than attractive nuisance, and the whole place should just have the orange-fence treatment that it is famous for.

Re: “Black and White

With all due respect to Chief Mills, please stop asking people of color to be the sole educators around how to deconstruct whiteness. There are many white people in the community who might be willing to guide/educate/mentor EPD; the people I've heard and worked with are committed to not speaking FOR people of color. They speak on the truths of what the role of whites has to be in order to make progress toward real equity. I'll email you personally to share this as well.
