Board moves to adopt cannabis enforcement policies in line with Humboldt County's

April 16, 2021 — The Board of Supervisors decided this week to follow Humboldt County’s approach to code enforcement against cannabis scofflaws, which includes real time aerial surveillance, hefty fines, and property liens.

And scientists with the California Dept of Fish and Wildlife told the board that the proposed cannabis cultivation ordinance to replace Phase III does not adequately address the cumulative impacts that cannabis grows have on water bodies and habitat loss.

On the same day the board heard from water managers around the county about the severity of the current drought, Angela Liebenberg, a CDFW environmental scientist specializing in cannabis enforcement, offered an analysis of the proposed ordinance.
