Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Frank Jager may be a skilled and articulate Eureka City administrator; however, I do have some concerns.

While it remains to be seen whether the new canna-businesses will in fact be "the most regulated business[es] in the city," it is fair to assume that they will be more tightly regulated than the coroner's office was when Frank Jager and others were in the practice of doling out sweetheart deals scavenged from the estates of the deceased.

Come to think of it, passing on the Eureka Police Chief post to Steve Watson, one who could be considered beholden to Frank Jager, perhaps might have some hidden perks for Mr. Jager and other city workers involved in questionable pursuits.

On another note, what gives Frank Jager the right to rain on the parade of these new, lawful, and tax-paying enterprises? One is left to wonder if Mr. Jager would change his tune were he to find a way to tap into the proceeds of the emergent industry.

Go live in Texas, Jager. Or Hell. These right-wing heartless hate-bots should follow their heads into their asses and pull the holes in behind them.

Re: “Dark of Night Edits to a Sungrown Ordinance

This sentence really resonated with me;
"And the grossest growers bulldozing for big bucks operate outside of all rules anyway."

As I've said before:
Many believe:
Strong regulations with significant penalties are needed to get the big guys to comply.

The problem is:
Strong regulations with significant penalties squash the little guy before competition can.

The big guy will either pay the fees, risk the fines, change the rules, or pay attorneys to circumvent them.

Re: “Dark of Night Edits to a Sungrown Ordinance

Make fun of the farmers growing cannabis as long as you can. Soon, the local economies will collapse as the farmers money no longer buys groceries, tires, dinners out, clothing or high property taxes. Welfare rolls will swell as will food stamp use... all because you think it's cool small farmers are driven into bankruptcy.

When your town is a Welfare Town, will you be happy?
