Here’s how they grow it in Ukiah. And don’t even THINK about getting sticky fingers, unless it’s yours and you’re rolling a joint.

​If you’ve ever considered doing something really stupid like ripping of someone’s pot crop, here’s a cautionary tale for you.

A 46-year-old Dublin, California man was hospitalized with a coma earlier this week after reportedly being beaten by the Ukiah residents whose marijuana plants he was allegedly trying to steal, the Ukiah Police Department reported on Thursday.

According to the UPD, the incident began shortly before 2 a.m. on September 23 when a resident called 911 to report that a group of people were burglarizing her home, and one of the suspects was being “detained in the back yard” by other residents, reports the Ukiah Daily Journal.
When police officers arrived on the scene, they saw the frightened Dublin man running desperately from the house and immediately detained him. The suspect had “serious facial injuries” and told officers he had come to the Ukiah area to “steal marijuana.”
He said he had gone to the home on Myron Place with “some local associates,” and they were in the back yard stealing marijuana plants when the residents surprised them.

​Proposition 19, the newly numbered Control & Tax Cannabis 2010 initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana in California, would lose if the election was held today — but by a very, very close margin, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The poll found that 48 percent of voters would support legalizing marijuana, with 50 percent opposed. The results fall well within the poll’s margin of error, which is plus or minus four percentage points.

This one’s going down to the wire. ​California voters are evenly divided for and against legalizing marijuana, according to poll results released Wednesday. The survey shows 49 percent oppose legalization while 48 percent support it.

Politics, geography and demographics seem to predict which side of the cannabis divide people are on: 56 percent of Democrats and 55 percent of independents favor legalization while only 34 percent of Republicans support it, reports Josh Richman at The Oakland Tribune.
