Assembly member Jim Wood (D- Healdsburg) has just announced that the administration is providing $1.5 million in the state budget to fund environmental cleanup of illegal cannabis grow sites in Humboldt, Trinity and Mendocino Counties. “Our beautiful pristine forests have become havens for these illegal grow sites,” said Mr. Wood, who represents these North Coast counties. “These illegitimate growers have continued to ignore not only state laws for farming cannabis, but have left these sites ravaged by lethal chemicals, clear-cutting and thousands of pounds of trash.”
