Ban Commercial Cultivation

in Calaveras County


Ban Commercial cultivation activities in Calaveras County

The people of Calaveras County recognize that the County needs to ban commercial cultivation of marijuana.  


This commercial industry has moved into our communities, neighborhoods and County turning residential property zones into commercial marijuana cultivation zones.  Many of these commercial grows are being protected with firearms, guard dogs and thugs.  Commercial marijuana cultivation is presently causing environmental damage in Calaveras County.   Violations at some purportedly organic grows include unlawful chemical releases, illegal use, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials and hazardous waste including  fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, rodenticides, and use of some chemicals so toxic, they've been banned for years in the U.S.   Growers are diverting our streams  to  support their marijuana irrigation systems, against the Clean Water Act.  This type of activity is putting children and families health, safety and welfare at unnecessary risk.  Regulation will not prohibit this commercial activity from taking place in your neighborhoods or keep it away from your families and your homes. 


The Ban Commercial Cultivation group continues to be dedicated and working hard to keep the ban on commercial cultivation of marijuana and commercial marijuana activities.
