      I’m glad that Ron Paul got a close second. What also is good news is that the republican wahoo’s are going to thin out some more because Rick Perry has just joined in the race. Ron Paul is very consistent on his policies for many years. For those who say that he is too old, what’s your point?
      I like to see Gary Johnson to be vice-president.

      Thanks prohibition for making cannibis grow by putting the pressure on. Please put more pressure on it because it will explode , and then what? You can’t beat what’s been around countless years. If it is money , try selling . It’s way too big for you to fight and it will never stop,ever.

      11. Jeff couldn’t be more right – and – his statement is correctly extreme. The Luciferian Party has sold our country down the river. It can’t be said any clearer than that.

      If the dea would put as much attention with our children that our missing at an alarming rate like they do on marijuana,they would find them a real criminal to arrest. Anyone can find a plant,but they can’t find or prevent our lost children from disappearing? I can see what means more to them,can you?

      Can you get Paul Krugman to toss the subject of marijuana legalization into things as a way of freeing up money and taxing it, you know, as a means of getting money you didn’t have before?

    8. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Department of Justice Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP) with the eradication of marijuana in Humboldt County. Between Aug. 8 and Aug. 11, officers eradicated 42,402 growing marijuana plants from open fields. The plants were seized from the following locations: Redwood Valley off State Highway 299, Baird Road, Hoopa, Bridgeville and Garberville. There were no arrests .

      Ahhh, another day in, Humboldt .

    9. This does not mean to come out to, Humboldt County to grow Marijuana .In fact, i don’t encourage it . There is a mandatory federal law imposed of no less than 10 years imprisonment to anyone caught growing large quaninites.

      Law Enforcement is still making arrests for mere possession of Marijuana and you can still be fined, jailed and put on parole or probation to lenghtly terms if caught .
