Pot farms in California forest raided, dozens arrested

Nearly 80 people have been arrested in the largest marijuana-eradication law enforcement operation in California history, several local reports say. About 292,000 plants have been discovered, Justice Department spokeswoman Michelle Gregory told the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat.

Raids involving local, state and federal authorities have been going on for days in the Mendocino National Forest in remote, mountainous areas in Glenn, Colusa, Tehama, Mendocino, Lake and Trinity counties, according to the Tehama County Daily News.

Officials are beginning the massive cleanup of the sites, which have suffered environmental damage, the Daily News and Press-Democrat report.

The idea for the operation reportedly came after a public meeting in Covelo in north Mendocino County in 2010. Residents said that armed people had confronted them in and around the forest. Hikers and ranchers also said they had been shot at when they mistakenly walked into areas where marijuana was being grown, the Press-Democrat reports.

It's unclear who the growers might be.

Pot farms on national forests have been a problem in California and across the country for years.

    If they make it legal then all of the government agencies that do these raids and depend on it being illegal would be out of a job.

      And it supports the jobs of the entire criminal justice business. States have to farm out inmates to private prisons because they have no capacity to incarcerate the large number of inmates sentenced to prison for nonviolent drug crimes related just to the growth and distribution of marijuana. No wonder the lobbyists for the prison industry is so adamantly against the legalization of marijuana.

      To the people saying legalization would fix this, what incentive does the cartel have to grow their pot legally? They had acres and acres of national forest converted to crop land, and they were squatting on the land for free. You honestly think if its legalized, the cartels will suddenly uproot themselves, go buy thousands of acres of good land, register with the govt and then submit themselves to FDA regulation? You're kidding I hope. Even if it were legalized (which it basically is in california) these illegal activities will continue. Where was this again? Oh right. California.

    National Forests are paid for and owned by the public with our collective tax dollars. If I cant go in and start growing corn, cows, buffalo, etc. on that public land than no else should be able to use it. It is for PRESERVATION not exploitation. You want to grow pot? Go take out a mortgage, get a license, pay tax and do it like every other farmer does. Otherwise you are just a black market criminal with guns keeping me from using my park land. Not to mention the environmental and biological damage these jerks are doing. Crop rotation – yeah right.

      if it was legal to grow and use then you would see less environmental damage as marijuana farmers would be regulated like all other farmers. Since it would be a good cash crops farmers could use it as part of their rotation cycles. Corn, beans, pot, beans, corn..etc.... If it was legal, you would also not have armed guards shooting at people and people growing it in public parks.
      And if it was legal, it could be taxed and used as a source of govt. revenue. Legalization would create jobs in the areas of production, distribution, and transportation. These jobs do exist now, but as black market jobs and not as legal tax paying jobs.

      Chicken sand.. It is leal to grow in california if you get a permit. And even if you don't have a permit the cops aren't looking to bust the small time personal use growers. So obviously that doesn't help in situations like this were Mexican drug cartels are taking over OUR national forests and destroying them. Don;t get me wrong..I like a cool buzz as much as the next person and would be happy if it was legal but thats not going to stop growing like this.. arrest them, destroy their crops (or give away on the street corner) and leave my forest alone!

    I stand 100% behind these types of raids! Yes I use marijuana for medical and pleasure. The reason I support this action is because the growers are willing to take over the forest and use as if it was their personal farm while forbidding a day hike for the rest of us.
    If these had been busts done in someones home, AND done by the rules the state allows, then I have a problem. with this.

    Everyone should know by now that THC kills cancer cells, and helps with various diseases. Also everyone should KNOW that in a time where our economy is so horrible, it would only make sense to legalize it even further, as opposed to doing these raids and spending taxpayers' money. Legalizing it would bring in hundreds of billions of dollars yearly, and cut spending by the billions. Also, I urge everyone hear to do actual research on the plant, and you will see the hundreds of medicinal benefits proven as well as the cancer and tumor killing studies. Educate yourselves, stand up for what is objectively right.

      There is no reason why marijuana should not be legal. None. Regulate it and apply the same laws to it that booze has (21+, cant smoke and drive etc).

      I agree that weed (and pretty much all the other drugs) should be legalized and regulated for all uses (including recreational); however, these folks are shooting at people to protect their crops.
      Someone had to do something to put an end to that. Regular folks should not be shot at or shot outright for going on a hike.
      Legalizing it would solve this problem for the long term, but short term needs demand and immediate response and getting shot at for any reason is a dang good reason to go in and clean it all out.
      If you want to grow weed, grow it in your house (hydroponic style) and keep the guns out of it.

      THC Pills are in fact real. They are called Marinol and give the same effects as THC but without the need to smoke it. The pills themselves where tested by the FDA and most trial patients said that the effects of the pills and to actual cannabis was incomparable. The pills gave no pain relieving effects and did nothing to help chemo patients. The one good thing about Marinol is that it cant be abused by people wanting to get high. It is purely a medication in pill form.

      It has been proven that cannabis does not cause any irreversible damage, certainly it does not kill brain cells.

      In fact, recently it has been shown in experiments with alzheimers patients that new neurons are formed, and memory for these patients improved by 43%.

      I think you may have missed the point of this article. No where is it condemning the use of Marijuana. The issue at hand is illegal grow operations on public land, where citizens have been confronted and intimidated by these growers. In Moraga, CA a police officer was shot at with an assault rifle yesterday evening when he stumbled upon an illegal grow in widely used regional park.

      By legalizing marijuana for recreational use, growing on public lands might become a thing of the past based on the principle of supply and demand.

      Thanks, Dr. Caeser, for your uninformed opinion. How's that Oxycontin and those radiation treatments working out for you?

      And how many of these people saying this stuff actually work in cancer research? I'd be willing to guess not many if not none. And, all the links and info on the web are a lot of "if's" and "possibly's". There is no solid definitive proof that it would in fact be a viable cancer treatment. THC binds to receptors on the cell and sometimes signals a process call "autophagy". Autophagy can lead to apoptosis (sudden cell death) but as often as it causes cell death, it also equally promotes cell survival. The process is very indiscriminate, and uncontrollable. But, by all means, please listen to the comment board expert (janet reno).

      I'm all for legalization and taxation, but these plants in National Forests are being grown by Mexican drug gangs, and they do spill gasoline and diesel fuel for their generators all over the place. They leave behind all kinds of chemicals and garbage because they don't care at all about the ground or the earth, just the money. These grows are an absolute mess and SHOULD be shut down. But again, no need for them and no profit in them if pot were legal and taxed.

      THC does not "kill cancer cells". It only helps relieve the pain of those suffering from certain cancers. It is information like this that people will pass on when it is not true. Educate yourself.

      Pot may heal, but the bullets from the grower's gun kills.
