Donna Huebsch./Trinity County booking photo Trinity County prosecutor, Mike Harper said that in the 16 months since the homicide, Huebsch had three attorneys working her case. After she hired the fourth, Arcata-based Russell Clanton, a statement she initially gave investigators, resurfaced and she was offered a two-year sentence if she agreed to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, a lesser charge than murder.

Emerald Triangle Banks Ordered to Spy on Customers

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2011 by highboldtage

from the Press Democrat:

Federal regulators are instructing North Coast banks to scrutinize their customers’ financial transactions for signs of money laundering and drug deals, the result of the region’s reputation for marijuana production.

Evidence of the policy emerged last month, when the largest bank in Mendocino County [Savings Bank of Mendocino County] notified shareholders that federal banking regulators were requiring it to closely watch its accounts because the North Coast had been designated a high-risk area for money laundering.

2010 Emerald Triangle Harvest – Bountiful and Beautiful

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2010 by highboldtage

Yes I know back in August I was whining here a little bit about the apparent lack of herb here in Humboldt County but in the last month or so the 2010 outdoor harvest is coming in and I have been blessed with a few samples.  Although I am certainly on the periphery of the marijuana / cannabis scene here in Humboldt having only been here three years now from what I have heard this year’s harvest in Humboldt, Mendocino and Shasta will be one of the best in memory both in quantity and quality.   I can tell you that the samples I have tried (all outdoor from Humboldt, Mendocino and Shasta and some from Santa Cruz)  have been top shelf. 

It seems like the outdoor growers were blessed with almost perfect weather this year for one thing.  For another thing I have anectdotal reports that some farmers planted more plants than before in anticipation of lower prices.  It also seems that more people than ever are growing this year, no doubt due to economic pressures.  People in danger of losing their homes or their land and have no other income will turn to growing – either indoor or out- rather than be foreclosed.  Of course a percentage of these newbie growers will fail but some won’t.

It will be interesting to see if the market can absorb all of this bud.  I think that it can.  After all that 30 tons of marijuana that was intercepted south of San Diego last week was going somewhere.

Indoor Pot Grows Fueled by 25 Years of Government Eradication Efforts

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2010 by highboldtage

From the LA TIMES:,0,4660032,full.story

“In urban parts of Humboldt County, electrical use per household has leaped 50% since 1996, when voters approved the state’s medical-marijuana initiative, according to a study by the Schatz Energy Research Center at Humboldt State University.

In Arcata and unincorporated areas of the county, average electrical use rose 60% during that time — while California’s overall use remained virtually flat.”

“Across rural America, farm towns became ghost towns. But in the Triangle, pot supported communities of small farms, locally owned businesses and young people. “Marijuana saved the family farm,” said Gerald Myers, former chief of the Briceland Volunteer Fire Department in southern Humboldt.

Grower money funded clinics, hospices, pre-schools and volunteer fire departments, residents say.

Then in 1983 the state began its Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP), using helicopters to spot pot fields. Each summer, narcotics agents uprooted tens of thousands of plants. By the mid-1990s, the crackdown helped push the wholesale price of premium pot as high as $5,000 per pound.

Growers went indoors. Beyond simply hiding from police, they could now grow year-round.”
