The good ol' boys and girls on the Tehama County Board of Supervisors 
(Steve Chamblin, Burt Bundy, Bob Williams, Dennis Garton, and Sandy 
Bruce) have always been stupid and backward in this redneck, Podunk 
backwater of the Central Valley, but have finally figured out that 
they can actually circumvent and pervert state law regarding medical 
marijuana to turn it against those it was intended to help.

In their hysterical, egomaniacal, immoral ignorance and arrogance, 
they are now empowered to deny their constituents' medical needs with 
near impunity, and are gleefully exercising their newfound means of 
repression and discrimination. After already unethically prohibiting 
medical-marijuana dispensaries in Tehama County several years ago, in 
August of 2013 they unanimously rammed through a draconian new county 
ordinance perversely designed in a desperate attempt to abate and 
hopefully completely eradicate growing physician-prescribed pot by 
zoning it out of existence with ridiculous restrictions.

To make matters worse, they keep changing the ordinance and adding 
even harsher "urgency" measures and fees, so that it is extremely 
difficult for medical-marijuana patients to stay up-to-date about the 
regulations and plan their grows and lives effectively.

Responsible, intelligent, informed citizens are mobilizing to vote 
the bums out of office on June 3.
