GR thank you for your observations that pretty much say what it is. I've noticed for some time many of our more political vocals have been more concerned about MJ than anything else. It's kind of funny, but why shouldn't people be able to help themselves with natural herbal remedies. Big pharma and the AMA peddle their drugs that cause all kinds of bad side affects...yet the Drug Administration approves of them. The lists of side affects testify that our bodies may look similar, but they react to things differently. Therefore what may help one person may harm another. In other words, we're kind of like lab rats. I've known a couple of individuals who took 20 prescription pills a day, and neither they or their doctor noticed the side affect of one prescription was causing the worst problem they suffered from. The pill (originally developed to kill rats) preventing blood clots, can also cause internal bleeding. Since we're in charge of our choices it's up to us to pay attention instead of taking things for granted.

I'm wondering if the Supervisors do a background checks on appointees to the CAG committee. Might be a good idea from what I hear.

Don Bessee

Typical fakenewsman 'from what I hear' as opposed to what I know. What no poll? ;-)

Paul Emery

It's what I know. I'm being kind

You know nothing other than what the usual suspects trot out every election cycle that's been long discredited, even on these pages. Don't you think the Sheriff knows the facts better than you? I still have clearance to enter high security fed. LE offices, do you? ;-)

Paul Emery

No need to be so defensive Don.

Don Bessee

Just because you are a fakenewsman does not mean we have to put up with your BS.;-)

Paul Emery is a lowlife provocateur nothing more.

There is currently a Palace Rebellion in the White House with more leaks than the oroville dam. The Rats will soon be jumping ship.

"The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter.

The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official. "

More to follow. The name should be revealed in a couple of days.

Gentlemen - please review the topic of this commentary and try to keep your comments in its vicinity.

Scenes 922pm - care to connect some dots to that piece of crap you linked us to?

Without a "Sandbox" these things are going to pop up in the craziest of places!

From the comment section.

It is fundamentally unfair and marginalizing for IQ tests and mathematics curriculum to be designed around the same white supremacist, cisheteronormative standards, thus marginalizing women of color. What we need isn’t just “fair hiring;” we need a radical reconceptualization of mathematics in a decolonizing framework. - See more at: http://blogs.ams.org/inclusionexclusion/2017/05/11/get-out-the-way/#more-772

Oh I imagine Scenes is just bringing it to our attentions that pomo academic rot isn't just for the Humanities Department any more!

I went to the first meeting of the advisory group charged with crafting a new cultivation ordinance to be approved by the BOS. Good diversified group. Also it was a well managed meeting.

George Rebane

PaulE 1022am - Paul, any early sense of the direction CAG wants to take on the ordinance?

Paul Emery

This was kind of an introductory meeting George with little time for discussion. My general impression is that it's a pretty reasonable group dedicated to coming up with a good plan for Nevada County. An appraisal of the economic impact of cultivation was a top priority in the presentation by the facilitators.

There was a round of discussion that gave everyone a chance to speak to their concerns and there was nothing new except what I sensed was a general interest to come up with a good solution. Nobody was talking Measure W type grow bans and a desire for regulations was discussed by some that would include as many current growers as possible to mitigate problems that have occurred because of unregulated cultivation. All and all I'm optimistic about this process.
