From the field: The downside of having a secret garden
Story of how 1 woman’s property was invaded, in this case by illegal growers. Thousands of feet of irrigation hose, 10 – 55 gallon drums littered her remote property. Police informed her that this goes on all over the County. Legalization has not stopped it. When these littering, trespassing, polluting growers become legal, do they become saintly green farmers and stewards of the environment?
Sonoma County could get more revenue through enforcement than they are getting from legalization and their current cannabis ordinance. Provide assistance to invaded land owners and penalties to land owners who allow illegal grows.
