During the last two weeks of August, the cannabis odors got considerably worse in Carpinteria — from the beach to above Foothill to the 150 to Toro Canyon.
We think this likely is a result of
more and more grows getting permits. We are all deeply worried as there has
been a noticeable spike in strong, pungent odors.
The new routine seems to be to vent
the greenhouses late at night between 1 and 4 a.m., causing what sometimes feels
like an explosion of odor that lingers for a few hours.
Complaints have come from Padaro Lane
beach to up by Cate School. I could probably pass on another dozen recent
complaints for the Board of Supervisors to look into.
Will the board read and review these
complaints? Do you need assistance locating the new odors? Will you do so? Or
are we just wasting our time?
