Calaveras Cannabis Sign Vandalized

Calaveras Cannabis Sign Vandalized

A sign supporting a cannabis ban in Calaveras County was vandalized over the weekend.  According to a news release from the Committee to Ban Commercial Cultivation, the vandalism occurred in Valley Springs near the Gold Creek neighborhood.  The sign was taken off its support frame and slashed through the middle.  In the press release, David Tunno, one of the authors of the Measure B initiative to ban cannabis cultivation says quote, “This is indicative of the element marijuana regulation has brought to this county, vandalizing campaign signs is against the law. We will not back down to them, and we encourage the voters in this county to do likewise.” The sign had been up only a few days before it was vandalized on Feb. 25th.  You may recall Tunno resigned his position on the county planning commission last year following a decision by the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors to regulate rather than ban medical marijuana production, saying at the time it undermines the commission’s efforts to update the general plan.
