There was huge excitement on the Mesa recently, when a local pot farm was paid a visit by local and federal constabulary! Very close to the border of the Marine Base, on Daisy Lane, a large, outdoor marijuana grow was raided and arrests were made. Jim and I saw the convoy of white Sheriff’s SUVs and black, unmarked trucks proceeding east on Daisy, at a pretty fast pace. We were very curious about the goings-on, but decided not to mosey on over and be lookie-loos! When we read the headlines in this newspaper, we realised what we had partially witnessed. Who knew there was a pot farm just over the hill from us? I walk over that way with our dog every morning and never noticed a thing!
What really irked us more than anything, was the fact that the growers arrested weren't even from around here. They were from Sacramento and other distant cities; even Mexico. How dare they use our pristine Desert Paradise for their enormously profitable, clandestine operations; without even paying taxes, offering local employment opportunities or in any way sharing their wealth with our Community? Phaw, I say!
Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone: it’s the unofficial end of Summer and a welcome day off for College students, yay!
