Re: “HIV

The doctors said Herpes virus do not have medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isnt a special virus your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body,But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the out break. Get natural herbs cure from Dr Iyoha or reach him through his email: driyohasolutiontemple@yahoo.com or Call: +1 (407) 337-9869

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

Alexa Wall, quoted in the article, pretends to be a local small pot grower.

She came from Texas four years ago and is applying for a commercial permit at her home on Roberts Road in Penngrove.

County records indicate her home is actually owned by a limited liability liability corporationZerene Lands llc located in Winters, California. Thats Yolo County in the Central Valley. She apparently doesnt own it.

The Secretary of State records indicate the contact person for Zerene Lands llc is a John Leon Scully in Winters. Scully also has another llc called Jem Farms llc. It might be another pot grow. We dont know.

Do we really know the real owners of her pot operation? County officials have investigated some operations and found llcs that are owned by other llcs that are owned by other llcs that are owned by other llcs.

The real owners might be drug cartels or the mafia. Or if you are credulous, just mom and pop operations. Why should any neighbor trust such a shady operation?

I suppose digging into this level of detail is beyond the energy level of the writer.

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

In 1968, Hunter S. Thompson wrote Any political party that cant cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Hubert Humphrey deserves every beating it gets.

Half a century later, Jonah Raskin plays Humphreys role on behalf of Big Marijuana. To be fair, perhaps Raskin suffers brain damage from senility or from puffing too much of his cherished weed.

To call neighbors who dont want commercial marijuana grows pot prohibitionists misleads every fair minded person about the real issues.

Commercial marijuana cultivation is an inherently dangerous activity. Commercial growers in rural areas subject their neighbors to those dangers, essentially hiding themselves among residents who dont conduct a marijuana business. Why pretend to be surprised when those neighbors object to providing cover to growers who rake in big profits and attract thugs?

Maybe Raskin hasnt noticed that Marin, Napa, and Contra Costa counties dont allow any commercial marijuana grows. Or that Alameda County, which includes Oakland and Berkeley, allows only ten grows in the whole county. No other Bay Area County allows outdoor marijuana grows. Are residents of all other Bay Area counties are pot prohibitionists?

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

Very disingenuous piece, shows your true colors.

SOS Neighborhoods is not about personal grows or small cottage grows and if you had done even a few minutes of research you would know that. Its about large commercial grows in residential areas.

Its not about residents saying they would like to grow more pot, for their aches and pains.

SOSN is not prohibitionist, thats a blatant mischaracterization.

Alexa Rae Wall would like something positive to say about cannabis in Sonoma County? How about this: 9 of the last 11 murders in the county took place at pot grows or locations mistaken for pot grows. Heres another, 5 families had their homes invaded by criminals looking for pot and cash. Women and children were pistol whipped and tied up in those cases. Are these examples of old bugaboos about marijuana that you refer to? This happened in the past few months, BTW.

Declining property values, stress on wells and electrical grid, tall fences with security guards, cameras, lighting and 24 hour operations on rural back roads may be bugaboos to this journalist but they are real concerns for rural residents faced with commercial pot grows outside their doors and suspicious characters driving on their back roads at all hours.

Undermines civil order? Not sure where you got that from. Is a home invasion and murder against civil order?

And the ridiculousness continues, Pot supporters say the signs are ugly. Seriously? The pot supporters are concerned about ugly? You want to see ugly? Go take a look at a commercial pot grow. Do a web search for "pot grows environmental damage" and you will see some ugly. I know, all those operators that are destroying our national parks and forests suddenly become organic and pure as the driven snow in their practices when they go legal. End sarcasm.

Calling SOSN NIMBYS is one of the lamest examples of lazy, biased journalism that this rag has regurgitated on the citizens of Sonoma County.

One of our members, Sam, in rural Healdsburg had 2 commercial grows move in next to him. His property is not suitable for growing so it basically became worthless. Who wants to buy a home surrounded by pot farms? So Sam's investment in Sonoma County is lost. Is Sam a NIMBY? Are others who don't want to see their life savings diminished NIMBYS? Am I a NIMBY because I would rather not have someone mistake my house for the pot farm proposed next door and smash my door down and threaten my family?

Another member is unable to hold family gatherings in their house any more due to the stench from the pot farm next door to them. NIMBYS I suppose.

http://www.sosneighborhoods.com/news/from-…

This story highlights the environmental concerns of a family in Two Rock. Just some NIMBYS.

http://www.sosneighborhoods.com/news/a-pow…

This story tells how a member in Penngrove lost the use of their back yard. More NIMBYS?

http://www.sosneighborhoods.com/news/from-…

Wine and weed are both connected to the earth and both are fighting accusations that they violate the land Is that supposed to be profound? So youre not only a lazy, biased journalist, your writing is also quite lame.

What does wine growing have to do with the issue of pot growing? Cant we take on commercial pot farms in our neighborhoods without having to justify the mess of winery over-proliferation? Yes its a mess. Yes pot is worse.

Re: your comments about the CAG, this story highlights the conflicts of interest in that body:

http://www.sosneighborhoods.com/news/sonom…

Re: water consumption and environmental impact of pot grows, this story has some basic facts. I point this out because its obvious you didnt bother to read our web site before printing your little trash piece.

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

As a resident of Purvine Road and one of the founders of the group, No Pot On Purvine, I would like to express my objection to the misrepresentation of our road and our organization's mission in this article

In his article, Mr. Raskin stated that, There are cannabis gardens on Purvine Rd." Ask any local; the dairy belt is not pot country. Our groundwater availability is notorious inadequate, our utility services are poor, and emergency response times are long. Cannabis is not our agricultural heritage; there are no pot grows currently on Purvine Road. That is, unless Sam Magruder, CEO of Big Rock, LLC, a cannabis investing firm based in San Francisco, is admitting that he is growing cannabis in violation of Sonoma County's cannabis ordinance.

Our organization is not opposed to the small, local grower, which Mr. Collings supposedly is now. We are fundamentally opposed to the widespread usurpation of the natural resources in our area by a corporate-backed, commercial pot industry. These cannabis compounds do not belong in rural neighborhoods like ours. Furthermore, Mr. Raskin chose to drive down Purvine Road and solicit quotes from his car, instead of engaging in in-depth and reputable research, and adhering to basic standards of journalism ethics.

Mr. Sam Magruder bought the property at 334 Purvine Rd explicitly to grow cannabis. Unfortunately, due to flaws in Sonoma County's cannabis ordinance, our area is zoned inappropriately to grow the maximum allowable commercial plot of pot. Make no mistake: Mr. Magruder is not a small, local Sonoma County grower. He does not live on Purvine Road, and it appears that he has never been a resident of Sonoma County. He misrepresented himself and his intentions to the family he bought the land from and to surrounding neighbors. As such, his residency information on documents submitted to the County to gain priority processing for his cannabis application were questionable. His project is backed by Mr. Gian Paolo Veronese, the son of San Francisco mayoral candidate Angela Alioto, and Mr. Mike Harden, a disgraced financial investor who was recently fined nearly $9 million by the SEC for insider trading. This information is publicly available, yet Mr. Raskin chose not to reference it in his coverage of the issue whatsoever.

It is easy to dismiss the concerns of neighborhood groups like ours as insignificant or misinformed "NIMBYs." However, the inadequate public notification and increased security risks have left old timers in our area scared and young families appalled. Our neighborhood is under siege: there are at least six proposed 1-ace commercial grows in the immediate vicinity of Purvine Road. Some are already growing and negatively impacting the area. As grassroots organizers, we are dedicated to making a difference not only for ourselves, but for Sonoma County residents and generations to follow.

We suggest you fact-check your articles prior to publishing them, and retract the misinformed article written by Mr. Raskin before the reputation of the North Bay Bohemian is tarnished further.

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

There is a dairy next door, not a big deal. And the hay fields that go on for miles don't use any water at all. Why does everything have to boil down to either grapes or cannabis? In areas where we have limited water supply, there aren't grapes and there shouldn't be cannabis either.

Cannabis uses less pesticides and less water than grapes so the rules should be more relaxed for cannabis growing than for grapes if ppl can grow grapes w out a permit then we should we able to grow cannabis w out a permit.

Re: “No Pot on Purvine

And how ridiculous that the picture shows someone who grows a couple plants for his aches and pains. Anyone can do that without a permit, no matter where you live. We are talking about FOOTBALL FIELD sized grows here. And the growers are pushing to increase the size of the grow by allowing them to exclude non mature plants from the calculation. Let your supervisor know you don't want these FOOTBALL FIELD sized grows in neighborhoods or to be even bigger. I ask you, what person from the county is going to come and monitor which plants are mature and which plants aren't?

FYI - there are only 11 counties in the state of California that even allow outdoor grows because the governing officials in the remaining 47 counties understand what a problem it is for the residents and crime. And the growers from those counties are moving to Sonoma. Welcome to the new Lake County.
