CalTIP - Californians Turn in Poachers and POLLUTERS

As California’s population swells, the ill effects of pollution and habitat destruction are increasingly detrimental to our natural resources. Fish and Wildlife considers incidents of agricultural pollution, dumping of household waste, industrial spills and ILLEGAL MARIJUANA GARDENS to be serious crimes.  If you witness a POLLUTING incident or have information about such a violation, immediately dial the toll free CalTIP number 1 888 334-2258, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  It is a CONFIDENTIAL secret witness program that encourages the public to provide Fish and Wildlife with factual information leading to the arrest of poachers and polluters.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE YOUR NAME.

October 24, 2017 UPDATE

No vote was taken on the Ban Ordinance that the Board of Supervisors directed staff to craft 10 months ago.   Instead of a vote the direction shifted.  It now seems Calaveras County will vote for either a Ban or strict regulation.  It is unknown at this time when the commercial marijuana issue will come before the Board for a vote.

We still support a Ban Ordinance on all commercial marijuana activities. 

In our opinion strict regulation is an open invitation for commercial marijuana criminal activity and environmental crimes to continue. 

If you support a Ban, then it is imperative that you please contact your District Supervisor and let them know you support a Ban and do not approve of anymore delays.
