I would like to commend the Air Pollution Control District for meeting the California Ozone standards. I assume that it was a hard job. I think I have an easier job for them: how about cleaning up the air in the Carpinteria Valley of what marijuana growers have put into our once-clean air?
I don’t know how long it took for (the Air Pollution Control District) to clean up our ozone, but we have had to put up with this marijuana odor for over two-and-a-half years. This should be a simple task. If growers cannot control the marijuana odor, they should have their permits suspended until they comply.
There are a few people, like myself, who feel that the Carpinteria Valley has been treated for years like the county’s ugly stepchild. When they want money, they have no problem coming to us for money, but that’s it. I think it’s payback time, unless they too are controlled by the marijuana growers.
