”It's an ongoing thing every summer -- we deal with dope growing...”

Rangers bust pot grow in Humboldt Redwoods State Park
Jack Kyle Daniels, 28, of Rio Dell and Amanda Marie Mullen, 19, of Willits were found at the campsite and arrested by rangers. Later, the two were transported to the Humboldt County jail, where they were booked on charges of cultivation of marijuana and numerous charges related to illegal camping.

According to Bergstresser, the growing operation consisted of around 50 plants, which were sprouted out of bags of potting soil and from potting-soil trenches, which were spread over the ground. It appeared, Bergstresser said, the two campers had been hand-watering the plants that were grown in small clusters along a creek drainage.

Although Bergstresser said it is rare to find growers who are camping alongside their grow, the pot garden that was raided Saturday appeared to be similar to many other growing operations rangers have discovered inside Humboldt Redwoods State Park in recent years.

    what do you expect from a guy named Jack Daniels? think he was named after the drink? id wager yes.....

  2. Another thing we deal with every summer is the growing deficit. Our schools and hospitals are on the ropes while the millionaire pot growers continue to pay ZERO taxes and tie up our law enforcement resources.

    The truth is, we don't have a financial crisis, just a massive unpaid tax issue. BILLIONS ARE STOLEN BY THE GROWERS EVERY YEAR.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
