First Planning Commission Hearing on County Cannabis Ordinance: Thursday, Nov. 5

On Thursday, Nov. 5, the Humboldt County Planning Commission will begin its review of the Medical Marijuana Land Use Ordinance-Phase IV, Commercial Cultivation of Cannabis for Medical Use. The Planning Commission meets at 6 pm at 825 Fifth Street Board of Supervisors Chambers in Eureka. This will be the public’s first chance to provide – and hear – input in a public forum on what has become a contentious issue with many closed-door meetings over the past year.

Joint comments on the ordinance were submitted by Northcoast Environmental Center, Environmental Protection Information Center, Safe Alternatives for our Forest Environment, and Humboldt Baykeeper, with additional comments to follow once the public and various state and local agencies have an opportunity to weigh in.

  1. If Jennifer is for banning cultivation on ag grazing, and TPZ, I’m behind her 100%.
    The headwaters of nearly every major creek in Humboldt have been devastated.
    The cumulative effect is a 1000 times worse than logging, because the loggers would log, plant, and leave. The Pot farmers do this year after year, and never let the streams recover.

  2. I am horrified by the supes effort to grandfather in clearly destructive and non permitted land uses. We need to STOP the environmental destruction, not legalize it. Regardless of whether or not the product is “legal”.

    Hey Baykeeper, why are you ignoring federally
    delineated wetlands (Northspit)?
    No resource is more important to our coastline,
    and our wetlands are dying. Do your job or quit..

      And they’ve been kickin’ ass ever since.

  4. Before Baykeeper we saw painfully few legal actions against environmental violations.

    Regulating industrial pot for their water-use and pollution is great.

    However, it’s the same as deregulating water-storage systems; actions that will only delay the inevitable for a few more decades from all the other unregulated, destructive and polluting activities that remain perfectly legal.
