Not from CA . . .
What's the penalty now for an unlicensed grow?
So sad to hear all the hardship coming to growers out there.

Let this be a lesson to y'all. NEVER EVER REGISTER ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY SOMETHING CONTROVERSIAL LIKE A CANNABIS GROW, WITH THE GOD DAMNED GOVERNMENT.

So the sheriff has the right to see your electric bill? If so wtf that info should be private unless your on a gov run utilities commision. People need to buck on this bullshit invasion of privacy its getting ridiculous.

The big lawsuit has hit Calaveras county. 16 million, growers want their fees back and then some. That is what the county gets when it bans big weed after embracing it's money$$.
Maybe the sheriff won't be able to but his new S.W.A.T. tank. The helicopter activity has slowed down recently at least in my little slice of the county. Busts of outdoor grow sites continue. It seems about half are asians from out of the area.
Most folks are O.K. with the 6 plant limit and may push the limit a bit with 10 or 12 plants. The sheriff doesn't mess with people pushing the limit a bit if you get along with your neighbors. Recent years lots of people paid some bills and bought some groceries with some extra crop. That scene has largely been shut down with legalization, testing and corporate weed . I think the giant mega-grows are rather obscene, but then money rules.
Some of the previously high visibility grow sites have some nice vegetable crops growing in the premium soil. Tomatoes love one year old farm compost. When growing was legalized in 2016 the subject was openly discussed in grocery stores or other public places. Since the ban went into effect all discussion by commercial guerrilla growers has gone back underground. The growers are still out there, just keeping a lower profile, who knows where the flowers are going. It is risky and the rewards are getting smaller every year. Mt. Zion estimates 1000+ commercial farms still going for it and he seems to be more informed than me.

P.S. They have taken the fun out of farming

Calaveras chronicles #48= I just had the pot copter do a flyby over my garden. It is funny how in these times of 6 plant grows being legal, that watching the blue and white helicopter 200' above my patch , cameras pointing down, just one pass, can still send a shiver down my spine. With a small 6+3 garden they don't mess with you when they are targeting grows of a couple hundred on up to many thousands, but still it is not a good sight. This is typical behavior from past years when sometime in September the copter makes an appearance. What set this year apart was all the helicopter activity during the summer that seemed to be targeting formerly registered grows.
Registered growers are getting back some renewal fees from the county but the big lawsuit is still going forward.
A couple of interesting farm busts went down recently. One was growing down the rows of a olive orchard for cover with a lot of plants. Another was at the site of a triple murder from 3 years ago where 3 rippers were blasted with a shotgun at close range.[Very messy]
That one ended up with the shooter getting 6 years jail time.
County supervisors meetings are still dominated with public comment largely in favor of reinstating legal commercial farming. Speakers run the gamut from straight looking dudes to a pleading young mother and 2 children with the misfortune of having to behave at a boring meeting.
I cut my first bud of the season. It is sure going to be good to have some fresh again

Multiple dead rippers if there's any justice.

With the price of weed at an all time low rippers have resorted to stealing aluminum cans, lawn mowers and swing sets.

Calaveras chronicles # 49= Our fearless five county supervisors have voted to restrict public participation at supervisors meetings, limiting speakers

time and subject material from the general public. Shame.
Big busts continue, 3000 and 6900 plants. 300 to 500 pounds processed on site. Multiple hoop houses and the usual mess. Mostly out of state asians once again.
Another chopper did a quick flyby of the neighbors previous grow site yesterday. I guess they were just making sure they were behaving. This is the location that had the helicopter doing inventory earlier this summer for 15 minutes. The amount of helicopter activity has been heavy this year. I have seen them at least 6 times now and I am not always around to see it flying. In a typical year I will see one. Whenever a helicopter is heard it gets a look to see if it is a pot copter, medivac, PGE or a firefighting unit.
P.S. Happy harvesting everyone

Calaveras chronicles #50= The big busts continue up here. 2 sites with over 1500 pounds processed and hundreds of big plants fat and ready for harvest. I Have never seen a year like this one, helicopters, big busts, lots of processed bud on site. Maybe farmers are having a hard time unloading big crops.
The county is targeting shipping containers now. They were mainly targeting former farmers until the farmers said " hey , what about all the non-farmers with shipping containers" on their land. The county allows structures up to 120 square feet without permits and the containers run 200 sq.ft. and up. It seems the new county code enforcement officers are trying to keep their jobs and create work for themselves.
Last weekend was artists open studio weekend in Calaveras county. Driving the backroads I only saw one large grow peeking over the top of a 6 foot tall fence. All other previously high visibility roadside grows were gone, tattered fencing and rows of smart pots left as evidence. One artists studio with a nice view stated that last year they had 15 commercial grows visible from their home, all are gone now.
Cops are definitely making it known big weed is not welcome. I wonder how many big operations are getting away with it.

Our sheriff Debasilio is getting a big award and flying back east to receive the praise for his efforts with operation Terminus last year which netted a gazillion plants. The sheriff is up for election this year but no changes to the pot/grow scene are anticipated if a new sheriff is elected. If any change in marijuana regulations is enacted in Calaveras county it looks like new county supervisors, if elected,

are the last hope for big weed.
People I talk too here almost always have the same identical story about living next to registered pot farms.
1= They run noisy generators all night long
2=They run lots of lights illuminating whole hilltops and ruining nice dark skies[ we can see the milky way really well here]
3= They like to shoot off their guns a lot, especially around harvest paranoia time
4= They are rude= For example 2 dreaded out guys, bare foot, dirty walking through Senders market drinking beer. I don't know how they got away with that one.
4=They are rude= Passing cars on curves on Mt.Ranch rd.
5= They are rude and stink[ nothing worse than human B.O. ]
6= They think they are the saviors of the slow economy in Calaveras. Calaveras got by before the big weed invasion. I think they do as much damage as good .
7= Organized crime moved in
8= Senders parking lot turned into a drug deal zone
That being said, I personally know responsible growers who do no damage to the land and get along with neighbors. All are people who lived here before legalization. I have yet to meet a newcomer who tries to fit in with the country lifestyle, working with nature and neighbors, and I have met quite a few. There are some, I just have not met them yet and farmers are fleeing Calaveras county like rats from a sinking ship. Maybe you guys and gals should plant a vineyard and make some wine
