With utter disregard for Tulane University athletics, Humboldt County Sheriff’s introduced The Green Wave, “a yearly enforcement effort including California Department of Fish and Wildlife, US Forest Service, CalCannibis, and the California Water Resource Control Board.”
The Green Wave’s aim is to address environmental impacts caused by cannabis growth. Below are key points of their press release about a licensed Humboldt County operator who grew pot on a neighboring lot.
- Zeb Giacomini, 42, was located on site tending the grow. He had a “permitted cultivation operation on his property (next door), but appeared to have expanded his operation onto the neighboring property.”
- Numerous stream violations, stream pollution and illegal grading issues were found on the site. A search of Giacomini’s property revealed 1442 outdoor plants, 50 pounds of processed bud, five rifles (two modified), and a couple of handguns. The grower was taken into custody and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. The Green Wave booked Giacomini on felony cultivation charges.
