Re: “On Murder Mountain

15 years of covering local news and can't recall a single story about sex trafficking eh? There is this story from 1 whole month ago.
https://lostcoastoutpost.com/2018/dec/18/eureka-police-arrest-man-human-trafficking-sexual/
The Murder mountain series actually did give an analysis of how so many people can and have disappeared here. They pointed out the huge area of steep rugged terrain, the annual influx of temporary residents, and the areas general appeal to those who WISH to disappear from society. Did you actually watch the show?
Then you go on to tell us that you dont ever leave out crucial facts to a story because journalism requires trust from its readership, and we might never trust you again if you didn't tell the whole story.
Here's some news for you. We don't trust you, or any other journalist for that matter.
Journalism isn't about reporting facts anymore. Its about creating stories, twisting truths, and pushing agendas. And you and the Journal are no diffrent. People read your bs for same reasons we read any other newspaper or watch television news. For entertainment value.

Re: “Don't Bank on It

There's a Federal lawsuit in Oakland where a judge is considering this problem right now, at least for the medical side of the industry.

Re: “The Green Wave

What we are observing is the takeover of a racket via hyper-regulation.
Cannabis is quite possibly the most useful, and therefore profitable, plant on Earth; while being utterly non-toxic. Government has no valid reason, or authority, to decide who gets to benefit and profit from this incredible plant, and who cannot. Cannabis prohibition is not being ended, it is merely turning into Prohibition 2.0 via hyper-regulation.

Re: “In Case of Emergency, Break Glass

Perhaps instead of trying to reform gun laws we should just increase the production of glass bongs and recycling bins.

Re: “Reefer Madness and Bongzilla

Thadeus, you should read the study you and a gazillion other medias regurgitated last week about weed and schizo. It's garbage. You should also read others' regurgitations of that study amd see for yourself how nobody, including yourself, questioned any aspect of it. It's this very propaganda at work. 180,000 "subjects" (actually a mail order gene pool) and nobody questioned how many drink alcohol????? Nobody! Let alone to what degree? Let alone what other meds they're on???? chidhood traumas etc etc etc etc etc etc. Whereas you wrote that indeed correlation is not causation, you, and the gazillion other overworked and underpaid reporters took it at face value and left it at that. The study was even published by a website that does nothing but fearmonger weed in those ways. Make parents think their kids will go crazy if they or their children smoke. Make people think they might be prone to serious mental disorders. Make people actually think that they are genetically predetermined to smoke weed. It's a full frontal example of the propaganda mentioned here. Ask yourself how 14 federal agencies can successfully fearmonger weed in this day and age, there you go. Glowing success.

Re: “The High Price of Freedom

Your duly elected representatives didnt think environmental protection measures were unreasonable when they enacted them.

Re: “The High Price of Freedom

I think its easy to forget that in addition to freedom of faith and expression, freedom to bear arms, freedom to love and marry anyone you please, and womens reproductive freedoms, the Fourth Amendment protects us from unreasonable search and seizures. Unfortunately, this has not protected private landowners in California from losing control of significant portions of their ownership to unreasonable environmental protection measures. However, not only are such takings based on bogus environmental concern, the people making these calls have little field experience and even less knowledge of the laws they are charged with upholding.

Re: “Pot POW

So...pots legal in most states now! Have they released Brett yet? If not...whats the holdup? Save prisons for the real criminals! This is one very talented individual, let him spend his time doing something productive like making music! I will be one of the first to attend his concert if PRISON doesnt ruin his musical abilities or stamp out his natural beauty!

Re: “Emergency No More

Both the lack of a 1 acre acreage cap AND the restrictions on light dep for outdoor permits will have severely negative consequences on the very small family farms that are the economic foundation of Humboldt County. Please go to the Adorni Center next Tuesday, from 1-3 pm, to protest this farm-unfriendly regs to the reps of California's Dept of Food and Ag!

Re: “The Marijuanapocalypse

Is it really a crisis? If so, why did it happen? They had six months to plan for and transition to compliant stock. Sounds like they did little until the last moment. if it's a crisis now it's because they simply decided to make larger profits by continued ordering and stocking cheaper non-compliant merchandise.

Re: “North Coast Left Out of Governor's Pitch to Crack Down on Illegal Cannabis

Legality to me means you have a nice potted pot plant in your home. You cut some off to smoke as will or needs be.

Re: “Dude, Am I Stoned?

A better question would be, "Am I stupid?"

If you need an app to know when you are stoned, you are in worse shape than we thought.

Better you should explore life without drugs, for a change...
