Humboldt County Supervisors accept marijuana eradication funding, support Medicare extension bill

Humboldt County Supervisors accept marijuana eradication funding, support Medicare extension bill

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors accepted $170,000 from the federal government for marijuana-related law enforcement work Tuesday morning, despite one individual's advice.

”Respect the sacred herb,” said Tad Robinson during public comment. “Say, 'No DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), this is not what we want our law enforcement to do in Humboldt county.'”

The money will fund Humboldt County Sheriff's Office deputies' overtime for the eradication of marijuana. The funds will also pay for the salary and overtime of reserve officers.

Third District Supervisor Mark Lovelace said he wanted to clarify how the DEA funding might be affected if pot is legalized in the November election.

He said there will still be people who don't want to follow the rules, and the black market will still be an issue.

”There will always be a need for law enforcement when it comes to marijuana, whatever the need may be,” he said.

Humboldt County Sheriff Gary Philp said the sheriff's office will follow California law, whatever it may be in the future.

”We really don't believe -- even if there is legalization in November -- illegal drug activity and enforcement efforts will disappear,” he said.

The funding, available each year, is to be spent on overtime for Humboldt County Sheriff's Office deputies as well as the salaries and overtime of reserve officers.

The supervisors also approved the
rest of their consent calendar, which included a letter to support Senate Bill 1091 and an exception to the county hiring freeze for an environmental analyst in the Water Management Division.

Senate Bill 1091 would amend the Welfare and Institutions Code to extend Medicaid coverage to youth who are in county correctional juvenile facilities for a limited amount of time. The benefits would apply to the first 30 days of a juvenile's stay or until they leave, whichever comes first.
