    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.!

      So True! Take care Don

      i have a denis peron for president sign somewhere - w/ a big old marijuana leaf on it - from 1977, i think.
    4. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 11 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, 11 years ago
      So True!
    6. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 11 years ago
      I think the anti-gun people should be shot & the anti-pot people should be stoned.
    7. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 11 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, 11 years ago
      Since the Army I am peaceful also!
    9. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 11 years ago
      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, 11 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, 11 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.
    15. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 11 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!

      In Vancouver there were 25000 people at there annual 420 celebrations this year. I went I 2010 it was pretty cool, free dorrittos on the way in and beuno chocolate bars on the way out mmmm.
    17. toracat toracat, 8 years ago
      Thank you Caperkid! So many changes since 70's and on!
    18. Caperkid, 8 years 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, 8 years ago
      California also! on ballot in fall!
    20. Caperkid, 8 years ago
      Merle Haggard will love that lol .
    21. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years 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, 8 years ago
      Hope it is under a ton! I have 1999 lbs.! haha
    23. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years ago
      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.
    24. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years 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 ?
    25. Celiene Celiene, 8 years ago
      How Ironic - he was in Oregon... Now Oregon is LEGAL!
    26. Celiene Celiene, 8 years ago
      Born in Oregon!
    27. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years ago
      May I ask who was born in Oregon & how they fit in here ? Name on that site means nothing to me.
    28. Celiene Celiene, 8 years ago
      The Sheriff on the poster Tom Jondhahl. Was born in Oregon, was Sheriff of Mendocino where the poster is from...
    29. Celiene Celiene, 8 years 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.)
    30. Celiene Celiene, 8 years ago
      The posters went up in 1981. Here is a picture in a newspaper.
    31. Celiene Celiene, 8 years ago
      WOW - this post started three years ago - and now I see all the info is in the initial desc! DOH!
    32. toracat toracat, 8 years ago
      Thanks Celiene! I like my poster even more! historic!

      Let’s destroy tobacco and alcohol before it kills our adults.
    34. Lata Lata, 6 years ago
      oh the irony... and now all the US big bucks come from guns or marijuana :)
    35. Cisum Cisum, 2 years ago
      And oh how the times have changed in the field of Cannabis..The Laws have changed quite a bit..Decriminalized recently Federally for the most part. Left up to each individual state, with more and more states each year are going legal, if not medically, then For recreational use. The main fuel is of course Money, raking in millions in state tax revenue. Even states That You would not think to go pro, like Alabama recently(SHOCKED ME REALLY!)
      Marijuana has Been debated, written about, smoked, eaten, and used for so many other purposes(Besides Your High), like the Hemp market. Without hemp, WWII would be worse, considering hemp was widely used for war goods, such as rope.
      Options will Allways vary, But hey, Are not all things?? In the 1930s, A scare documentary black and white film titled, 'Reefer Madness'..Well..Take A Look if interested.

      Actually Thomas, Alabama made it a misdemeanor for up to 1/4 lb. with a max. fine of $200, back on the early 1960's. It didn't work smoothly because cities and counties were handing out felony convictions of 6-7 yrs. on trouble kids they wanted off the streets. The State prisons were being filled with felony convictions on what was a State misdemeanor and being paid for with State funds. The cities & counties couldn't be reasoned with and it was finally dropped.
    37. toracat toracat, 2 years ago
      So TRUE!
    38. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 2 years ago
      And here we are now, 03Apr2022, where it seems the US House of Representatives *passed* a bill intended to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. (which, of course, has already been happening at the state level all across the US)

      Frankly, given that news was announced on 01Apr, I'm *still* not quite certain if it was legit or just a large-scale joke for April Fool's day...?? (but y'all can probably guess which of those two I'd vote for...?? <lol>)
    39. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
      Just coming in from my Sunday ---- Brownie Tour and probably should shut-up. Proof testing some new brownies from the French side. (Somebody has to do it !). Real clear day and got some good pix of St. Barths (I think) and saw a real clear "green flash" at sunset (I think). The girl didn't show up so did a dysfunctional solo. Great for meditating. Wonder what her name was ? No shortage.
    40. toracat toracat, 2 years ago
      SAW "green flash" Barra de Navidad Mexico! 1974! with help from Mezcal and weed haha Maybe glassy eyes with red lines caused a lightning to make "green flash" take care!
    41. forester, 1 year ago
      Hey toracat - i have a poster exactly like this from Siskiyou County - same type set and message - identical except for the name of the Sheriff - in Siskiyou County the sheriff at the time was L.E. "Bud" Taylor.

      The irony was too much - Sheriff Bud wants marijuana! I took it down as soon as it got dark and have kept it ever since.
    42. toracat toracat, 1 year ago
      Say hi to Bud!haha
