“Shasta County supervisors — hearing complaints from irate rural residents who’ve seen neighborhoods go to pot and keen to demonstrate some action — are once again talking about outright banning any growing of marijuana in the unincorporated county.
“They’re right to want to do something. … Illegal water diversions, unlicensed use of pesticides and poisons, and illegal squatting on property have become all too common. …
“The county and state environmental officials badly need to put resources into ending the sheer lawlessness.”
