Shanda has a good point! And watch the Newspapers lately it seems those using the harder drugs are the repeat offenders of more serious crimes which makes no sense that the jail has a revolving door to them.
What is the solution addressing arrest happening now?
Would it not be more positive to keep the arrest to those using public lands and poisoning water streams, not those who grow on their property using appropriate tools?
Our local Law Enforcement receives funding from busts through the eradication process through the Forest Service, State and Federal governments. To stop arrests pertaining to grows on private lands would we not need to remove the funding?
I am curious to, was not MacFarland arrested for illegal transportation across state lines? Are there not permits required to transport from state to state goods and products? This would definitely need to be changed, yes?
Cannabis needs to be legalized, but it also needs to be regulated for safety, just as alcohol is. It is just too bad it will be a few years before it is openly legal the way our present Congress works.
It sounds like the individual going around suing businesses may soon receive not so welcoming news when going into future businesses. It is really to bad, soon we may see businesses that have those signs up that read "We refuse the right to serve everybody, that includes disabled!"
Northcoast Journal just did people a favor, on pointing out who not to allow into their businesses! Definitely not helping to ultimate goal of acceptance in society.
Right! If the funds used are to pay regular time for individuals to address the issues on National and State public lands that would be great. It would also be great that when these grants are received they are used to during regular hours to address the meth and cocaine problems within our cities, but will it?
When this funding address the needs of the user or arrest, book em, and place more costs towards an already strained legal system? Probably not.
The community has to address this, not by requesting more law enforcement to fight this alone, but to address local health, education, housing and employment issues. Until this is done, we are too dependent on the government to solve our problems that began at home!
This cartoon demonstrates a lot of truth in how some drivers in our area believe they are in the right by their actions creating an unsafe environment for pedestrians. On few streets, like H & I and 4th & 5th Streets in Eureka they should just establish pullover lanes for drive-thru citations. Have a police officer one a raise pedestal and they only need to point at you and you go a couple blocks to receive your citation for driving too fast or using your cell phone, two of the most common mistakes seen.
More traffic law enforcement during the day would be great!
Could be true!
