Weed as way of life: California farmers divided on legal bud

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

GARBERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Laura Costa’s son and husband moved quickly with the pruning shears to harvest the family’s fall marijuana crop, racing along with several workers to cut the plants and drop them in plastic bins ahead of an impending storm.

The rain could invite “bud rot,” Costa said, “a big no-no.”

The farm, hidden along a winding mountain road in a remote redwood forest, is just one of many illegal “grows” that make up Northern California’s famous Emerald Triangle, a rural region that developed over decades into a marijuana-producing mecca at the intersection of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties.

The campaign behind California’s Proposition 64 to legalize cannabis for everyone 21 and older announced that they’ve received the official endorsement of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

According to the Yes on Prop 64 campaign, this means that “every large-circulation daily newspaper in Southern California has now endorsed Proposition 64.”

The endorsement from the Union-Tribune is an important one, as the paper opposed Proposition 19 to legalize cannabis in 2010. The Union-Tribune joins the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, Orange County Register and Riverside Press Enterprise as outlets that opposed Prop 19 in 2010. All publications support Proposition 64 in this year’s election.

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

In Arizona the fight to maintain marijuana prohibition has been led in recent years by Bill Montgomery, the top prosecutor in the state’s largest county.

He’s the face of the campaign opposing a ballot measure that Arizona voters will either approve or reject in two weeks. His repeated lawsuits aimed at derailing the medical-marijuana system approved in 2010, which have mostly failed, delayed the system’s implementation by about a year.
