In The News: Santa Cruz County authorities cite concerns with outdoor marijuana plantations

Looks like some folks growing marijuana around Boulder Creek are creating a problem… not because they are growing marijuana, but because they are tearing down the forest, creating fire hazards, moving dirt into waterways and fouling fish habitat.

“Firefighters are there to check for fire safety.

“When I get out of the truck, the first thing I say is, ‘As far as I’m concerned, this is a vineyard,'” he said.

If trees are cut down and the land is converted to a marijuana grow or any other use, the owner needs a timberland conversion permit, according to Cal Fire.”
