A FB discussion about the MJ Biz...

...from a long time resident of a small community in California regarding the new odors from the newly legalized MJ business. Names changed for the F&$# of it...

Proboscis Maximus: I urge everyone who is bothered by the smell to contact the county through their web page each and every time you have an experience. The county needs to hear how unacceptable this is.

: I remember way back when the nursery's began populating the Carp valley. These same concerns were expressed and most were valid because they changed the aroma and landscape of the area. Prior to those days the smell of lemons, avocado and orange were prominent very pleasant but things changed. The smell of manure and compost was a shock especially on humid days back when the crop was pretty flowers. Things change and the Carpinteria agribusiness has always been a benefit to the community regardless of the protests of the few who are adversely impacted. I would very much like to go back to the time when I used to take a shortcut thru the lemon orchard south of the Linden 101 overpass to get to Canalino elementary school or take a run up the old Edison road behind the new Carp high in gym class that we hated way back then in '68. Jumping off the pier, long gone and living in the memory of the few these days, at high tide and digging under the old boardwalk at the end of Linden ave for nickels to play the pinball machines or buy 5 cent salt water taffy or maybe a 30 cent drop line rig from Reg's. The thing is that Carpinteria is an evolving community and agribusiness is a major factor in the valleys growth. The money from Carps agribusiness, no matter what the crop is, will always have positive overall positive impact on the local economy and prosperity in the valley IMNSHO.

Canadian Selective Odoriferous Snowflake: Iíve lived in agricultural areas all my life, and have never been particularly bothered by a multitude of associated odors. I donít mind the smell of smoked cannabis, but proximity to commercial cannabis cultivation is much more offensive than manure and compost. There are more than a few who are adversely affected, and IMO odor control is imperative for the new industry. This is nothing newó Iím in Canada at the moment and communities here have dealt with the odor issue for medical cannabis operations, and in fact at least one community imposes fines for odor releases.

Ancient Rememberious: The MJ agribusiness creates odors at an order of magnitude much less than the slaughter of animals. Thank Cod that Carpinteria's agribusiness is plant centric rather than animal based! So Canada, unlike the US, has decided to have a more progressive attitude towards MJ country wide, that, IMO, is good.

It must be mentioned that those who are bitching about the odor are the land owners who don't want and have issues with new MJ ag businesses moving into their turf.

2. Who remembers driving through Salinas on a warm day, near the McCormick Plant?

Cruisin' the 101, back in the day?

That was some STANK, boy-howdy ...

I wonder if RW'ers complained back then (it closed circa 2008 per articles I've read) or if they called area's Liberals who DID complain over the many years it was in operation ... a bunch of snowflakes ...

For my part I'll always remember the aroma rather fondly, as it signified the occasion of a road trip in the late 80's-Early 90's ... between my Central Coast Alma Mater and my family home in the SF Bay Area ...
