Cannabis planting is taking over the Santa Ynez Valley

By JB Baker, Buellton

I live in Buellton and have lived in the Santa Ynez Valley for more than 50 years and have never been so sick with allergies as I have this fall. Thanks, cannabis growers who never quit planting, harvesting, and planting again. The “wet skunk” odor permeates our end of the valley whenever there is a hot day or a west wind. Instead of grass, vines, bean and tomato plants, we get a stinky, cloying stench every time we step out.

The pollen released is of epic proportions, coating cars and houses

Oh yeah, let the new aggie tricksters plant more of this crop that never ends, marching hoop houses over the hills and through the river bottom. Bravo Santa Barbara County planning commissioners.
