    Most were surfers from Southern California who moved up to Mendocino and Humboldt. Later they were joined by formerly redneck loggers.

    That sink looks like the standard bathroom scene in a Meth Head MAGA household down in the flatlands of the high desert.

    The redneck loggers were there first.

    It was during the early 1970's when the left decided that a owl was more importance than humans and basically the liberal environmentalist destroyed the California logging industry.

    All of those lumber mills were closed down and those mill workers and loggers found themselves on welfare. Then one day they discovered in Humboldt County you could make enough money to support your family on by growing pot.

    It was Humboldt buds that kept Humboldt County alive during the 70's and 80's.
    Even the Sheriff of Humboldt County knew that those former loggers and mill workers were able to pay their property taxes from the money they were making from growing pot which paid the Sheriff's salary

    I'll take your word for it.

    I wouldn't know because I've never been inside a meth lab and I don't associate with tweekers because they remind me of LSD freaks from the 60's who today are inpower of the Democratic party.

    I have bought a few properties that were formerly rented to right wing Meth Heads and renovated them and rented them to older hippy LSD head types. Now instead of meth labs and barred windows and Trump signs, they have vegetable and herb gardens, free range egg laying chickens and wildflower mixes covering the yards. No roaches or rats anymore.

    Right wing meth heads ?

    Meth heads are as political as a goat.
    They don't vote and if they were to vote they would have voted for Prop 47.

    Until Trump, I agree that meth heads and cookers were very apolitical. However Trump has seemed to have brought out their political side. He’s the kind of guy these types can really get behind. They blame Mexicans for all of the ills of the world and hate them. They are also big proponents of shutting down the borders and keeping cheap Mexican meth from interfering with their domestic production facilities usually set up in their toddlers bedrooms. Make no mistake about it, these guys are big Trumpers. They all love guns too and I am sure they would be down with your idea of making it a felony for black people to even touch a fire arm. These are your brothers in arms Apache, embrace them!!!

    You are aware that you can get a contact high from meth fumes and smoke.

    Might be the time Jack to consider moving up to Humboldt County.

    I love it here in North LA County. Where I live it seems that more old hippy types are moving in all the time and beautifying the landscape. It’s kind of like Santa Fe. Lots of artists, animal rescue people, organic farming, new wineries springing up, beautiful views of sunrises, sunsets and rainbows and snow capped peaks in the winter. It’s turning away from the meth heads and being populated with pot smoking, old LSD heads who are good neighbors and nice to have around. That’s probably why Katy Hill beat 6 time incumbent and Trump dupe Knight in 2018.

    Why not just disband the federal government AND the United States then and just say we are 50 different countries then?

    Good question.

    I spose FedGov may be useful in resolving disputes between states and presenting a united defense vs invasion. Though certainly theres alternative methods to accomplish both.

    Ultimately, I think that extreme would be quite unpopular. But more state autonomy seems to be gaining as folks seek more locally popular enforcement of things like drugs, guns and abortion.

    Surely we can make FedGov smaller without abolishing it...?
