Before the last election when Measure S, the proposal to make some 
sensible changes to the county's current medical marijuana ordinance 
was on the ballot, our local sheriff repeatedly stated that the 
current "nuisance" ordinance was "complaint driven."

That means, as I understand it, that someone, such as a neighbor, 
must complain about some annoying or illegal aspect of a local 
medical grow before the Sheriff's Department takes action. Yet, as 
The Union recently reported, during Brad Peceimer-Glasse's 
preliminary hearing for a cultivation arrest in early September, a 
sheriff's deputy "... testified that the properties were investigated 
after overflights revealed the marijuana cultivation."

In other words, there were no complaints. And it just so happens the 
fly-overs occurred over each of Peceimer-Glasse's two Nevada County 
properties located about 30 miles apart.

Isn't it interesting that in the same article The Union also 
described Peceimer-Glasse as "a medical marijuana advocate who was a 
strong proponent of Measure S." Yes, Brad Peceimer-Glasse just 
happened to be very active in Americans for Safe Access-Nevada County 
(ASA-NC) which submitted Measure S to the voters. Although I am 
certain the overflights saw many larger grows, Peceimer-Glasse's were 
the ones targeted.

Need I say more?
