I was a crisis worker in Mendocino County Ca. This is big part of the Iron Triangle, area for growing marijuana. Sheriff Tomas Jondahl 1974-1983 tried to stop people from growing pot. This poster he put up on telephone poles and all over the county. LETS DESTROY MARIJUANA BEFORE IT DESTROYS OUR CHILDREN These were torn down within minutes after they were put up! I was on a crisis call, going to a hospital in another town to evaluate a suicidal teenager and saw this poster and stopped the county car and pulled it off the telephone pole! It is probably the only one left as they were destroyed soon after they were put up. The only money in this county is pot, wine, and some pears. Almost all lumber mills have shut down. Time has passed and now if you grow on your own land, they look the other way mostly. It is very wrong to grow on State Park land or any Public land. Soon it will be legal like Colorado. Medical Marijuana is legal, Someday even the VA Hosp. will give it to PTSD patients and others for pain! TODAY'S HEADLINES IN PAPER:
Feds subpoena Mendocino County pot records, Feds mum on Mendocino County pot investigation, Mendocino D.A. says medical pot growers should tag plants, Mendocino County: Feds threatened ETC.!

    i have a denis peron for president sign somewhere - w/ a big old marijuana leaf on it - from 1977, i think.
  4. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
    "you'll have to wrest my marijuana from my cold, dead hands..." wouldn't it be cool to do a parody of the big gun debate only make it about marijuana?!
  5. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    So True!

    I think the anti-gun people should be shot & the anti-pot people should be stoned.
  7. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
    i can agree on the anti-pot people, but i don't think anyone should get shot. [probably because i'm a peaceful stoner]
  8. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    Since the Army I am peaceful also!

    i love it! i remember seeing these police kits when i was a kid. they had flyers like this in them, and also some dry plant material to burn as incense in order to recognize the smell of marijuana. i have a 1980 Denis Peron for Mayor of SF poster somewhere. he's a friend of mine.
  10. toracat toracat, 4 years ago
    He was and is a real character! He should run again!!!

    In the 70's, the U.S. sent a group to Jamaica to do a study on work habits of Jamaicans smoking & non-smoking. One of the group stayed in 1 of my apts. & I asked him how it went when they finished. He told me, "This is 1 study you won't see published. We found that Jamaicans who smoked worked 70% better than those that didn't." He also said their main problem was finding Jamaicans who didn't smoke for their study.
  12. RonM RonM, 4 years ago
    There was nobody workin there when I went to Jamaica,except the women.

    Well, they can't grow the ganja on the streets. Basically you're right. "Why pick the fruit when you can pick the tourists". When they ran off the tourists, they had to start stealing from each other & the "take" would get smaller & smaller. Grow some great weed though. The "roaches" they throw down would bring tears to many an Amer. eye. My test was to stick a bud to a wall & if it was still there a wk. later, I figured it was good for consumption. Of course that was just to have some for visiting friends.

    blunderbuss2 - i think the study you are referring to was by Prof. Joe Schaeffer who was at Columbia working on his phd. he got a lot of press about it for a short while. i think he even published his thesis, but am not sure. he was a wonderful professor of mine for a tutorial [1 student/1 professor] i did at Marlboro College many years ago.

    Ho2, believe that was '77-78. Long time ago but the name sounds vaguely familiar. Thin, had a short, well trimmed beard? In those days it was prudent to not to remember names or faces & I was good at it. Am I going to have to plead the 5th soon? Ah, statute de limitations has expired. The answer to your question is "yes". And imagine, here on CW!

  17. toracat toracat, 1 year ago
    Thank you Caperkid! So many changes since 70's and on!
  18. Caperkid Caperkid, 1 year ago
    Your welcome the new Liberal gov here plans to make it legal or decriminalized at the least will see if it passes.
  19. toracat toracat, 1 year ago
    California also! on ballot in fall!
  20. Caperkid Caperkid, 1 year ago
    Merle Haggard will love that lol .
  21. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    The U.S. blackmails all those other countries to outlaw pot, so we just ignore it. Not sure what our "personal use" amount is, but probably under a ton.
  22. toracat toracat, 1 year ago
    Hope it is under a ton! I have 1999 lbs.! haha

    Did you make it on time Thomas ? LOL! "We" campaigned against legalization in the 70's & 80's to protect the trade since we knew import demands would drop. It would be a waste of time to go thru the process of legalizing in SXM. I have "neighbours" who grow it in their yards & never think about getting busted.
  25. brunswick brunswick, 1 year ago
    "Trees" were legal in the U.S. as a whole till 1935. Remember "Reefer Madness"??, This put a damper on the "Real Thing" in Coca-Cola!!!! Thomas.
  26. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Actually, I quit smoking ganja decades ago. Now those CO hash brownies are a different thing & recent ! I have always been an advocate for legalization because the laws were written by racist idiots who had no idea what they were doing. The laws have been misused since their inception to target certain groups unjustly. God created marijuana. Man made it illegal. Who was right, God or man ?
  27. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    How Ironic - he was in Oregon... Now Oregon is LEGAL!
  28. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    Born in Oregon!
  29. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    May I ask who was born in Oregon & how they fit in here ? Name on that site means nothing to me.
  30. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    The Sheriff on the poster Tom Jondhahl. Was born in Oregon, was Sheriff of Mendocino where the poster is from...
  31. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    If you look stuff up, you can get a date. He served as Sheriff from 1975-83. So you can date the poster to that time period. I'm sure you know what a hub of Marijuana growing Mendo was (and still is.) That is why is is saying if you see anyone growing... MJ didn't just grow everywhere.

    Tom served as Police Chief of Orland, California for five years from 1967 to 1971, and then became Chief of Police in Fort Bragg, California where he served until his election to Mendocino County Sheriff in 1974, in which he served two terms of office (1975-1983) (I'm a bit more curious than most.)
  32. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    The posters went up in 1981. Here is a picture in a newspaper.
  33. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    WOW - this post started three years ago - and now I see all the info is in the initial desc! DOH!
  34. toracat toracat, 1 year ago
    Thanks Celiene! I like my poster even more! historic!
