In Our Opinion - Sheriff did the right thing
Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman sent his deputies this week, with a warrant. to the Pinoleville Rancheria to put a stop to the marijuana growing operation that few believe was any kind of legitimate medical operation. Our understanding is that United Cannabis, the Colorado corporation that was partnering to help with the tribe’s claimed medicinal operation pulled out some time ago.
Sheriff Allman had warned the tribe on day one of their operation that if they went beyond the limits of California law he would be forced to stop them. And so he did. Finding a honey oil lab as well as apparent evidence of a for-profit business operation made the Sheriff’s action inevitable.
