The Mateel Center hosted the 20th Annual Hempfest this weekend and yesterday the Hemp Forum panel included many perspectives on the present and future of marijuana.  
Discussions of the differences between indoor and outdoor marijuana, protection of the Emerald Triangle brand, and how Humboldt farmers can survive a future where marijuana is legal.

Community Journalist Kerry Reynolds filed these two stories for the KMUD local news the week of November 15.

Here is raw, unedited audio from the forum.

Below you will find a recording of the board meeting of the Mateel Community Center, held on October 19, 2010.

The Fort Bragg police department, in cooperation with the Fort Bragg Coalition for Gang Awareness & Prevention, has announced a formal survey to help assess the community’s perceptions and concerns related to gangs in Fort Bragg. A press release from the Fort Bragg police states that this research is vital for producing statistics that can be used in grant applications. Hard copies of the survey have been distributed through the mail with the city’s water bill. It’s also available online, and if you’re interested in participating, you can find the document by following the link below.

Listeners to the story may get the impression that all local law enforcement would like KMUD to stop airing these citizens observations.

At an April 14, 2010 forum by the League of Women Voters, the two candidates for Sheriff of Humboldt County were asked about their stand on these reports. Here is an excerpt from that forum, with the question and answer. Neither candidate seemed to think the reports present much of a problem.
