    with the illegal grows on forest service land.

    Every year, there's a cleanup on a short stretch of the upper mainstem Eel River. This is just one of the piles the volunteers picked up, in 2012.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  I was just reading about that! (0+ / 0-)

      I came across a grow the FS didn't know about.
        The place was littered with spray paint cans: huffers!

      the cleanup further down river I was reading I think was homeless encampments,  tons of material removed or burned.

      here's a good link to the recent LA Times editorial on the recent court ruling leaving MJ a class I drug. ugh.

      la times article on court ruling

      Mendocino County still fighting the fed trying to get at their zip tie program registry people, those who signed up to be legal med MJ growers.Hunted by the Feds.

      serious police activity on the rez. good! meth, guns, gun enhanced charges, heroin.
      I saw all this other stuff looking for the cleanup article, I guess it must be in a comment somewhere on LCO probably.

        The feds forced the sheriff to discontinue it. Pity, because it met many local needs rather well.

        Here is an article about the Eel River Cleanup in 2011. My daughter and I have participated for several years, and found all sorts of interesting and uninteresting trash. Jared Huffman (now our congressman) came to observe the staging last year, which was good to see. In 2012, my group filled a pickup truck with a discarded trailer and several snags of wire fencing that would have been devastating to fish had they been washed into the river (and they would have, during the December rains, had we not removed it).

        That's not even the full load, and it was one of many.
