        Interesting how the SO can only bust the Asian or Mexican grows.
        Can't believe that all the white locals growing are that much better at hiding their grows.

            This is all just a big waste of money and fanfare. None of the surrounding counties are spending money on this. We need our local law enforcement back on the streets, highways, neighborhoods. Every town should have a deputy that is a part of the community interacting with business owners and citizens daily.

Calaveras SO will be playing whack a mole with illegal grows for all eternity. All because we couldn't embrace the concept of legal, registered, tax-paying growers who have moved on to communities where they are welcomed. More to the point, didn't understand the difference.
