Re: “Up in Smoke

I don't know what you really want. Pot growers benefit from an inflated price by the fact that marijuana has been illegal. I would hope growers and sellers are putting away money and planning on the fact that they operate in a black market with little protection. The same would be true for a self-employed person. They don't get employer insurance or automatic social security deductions but they benefit from setting their own wages and generally making more money. Also, orchards of any type take years to establish while pot farms can operate on an annual basis. Loss of crop effects these industries differently.

Re: “Way. Too. Much. Weed.

Water resources need to be protected as well. I think that restricting water in an industry that is as volatile as this one is might be a very good way to stem the tide of overproduction. It's a much more valuable resource than pot production justifies useage of.

Market forces will continue to prevail. Thus, the price that buyers are willing to pay will continue its long decline. As a result, the Humboldt County economy will continue to decline and its social and community problems will continue to increase.
