Indoor Marijuana Cultivation is Out of Control in Arcata
Thursday night a fire caused $20,000 damage to a house just outside Arcata city limits. The home had recently been renovated at a cost of $30,000, with new floors, paint, roof and more. â€œIt was spotless,â€ said owner LaVina Collenberg (mother of the late Randy Collenberg of â€œCab 10â€³ fame).
The tenant, Cody Nehring, said that the grow was a â€œcooperativeâ€ for five medical marijuana patients. Indeed, five Prop 215 certifications were posted on the living room wall, one with Nehringâ€™s name on it. The Humboldt County Sheriffâ€™s Office reportedly will not charge the occupants with anything, as they were duly covered by Prop 215.
In Arcata, neighbors and police have become increasingly concerned about the proliferation of grow houses. Apart from the danger of fire, there have also been home invasion robberies with violence. In subdivisions where the houses look alike (especially at night) neighbors are concerned about robbers getting houses mixed up. Oh, and that smell.
