During the October 5th Arcata city council meeting, president of Humboldt State University Rollin Richmond spoke out against medicinal use of cannabis, contradicting most scientific findings and traditional wisdom.

His goal? To convince the Arcata city council to remain silently complicit while the University Police Department enforces HSU’s “zero tolerance” cannabis policy on targeted segments of the ARCATA population (not just campus).

Some notable quotes from Oct. 5th
Arcata city council meeting:
“We will not tolerate medical marijuana on campus and we will discipline students who have it and remove it from them.”

“One of the things we would hope to do is work with your police chief and your police force to collaborate more effectively than we already do in the use of our joint police forces.”

“I cannot ask the police at the university to work with the police force in Arcata if my police people cannot enforce the laws in the same way they do on campus within the city of Arcata.”

“We brought before you the other evening a Healthy Plaza Initiative, which is supported by the university, a number of business organizations in the community and a number of business people.”

He has also spoken at Homeless Task Force meetings, saying that some people just don’t fit into his idea of what society is.
Richmond suggests more police.

    Dear “PLAZOID”

    Do you bury your fucking head into the sand all the time? Do you run around acting holier then thou because you feel like you really are helping out someone? Why don’t you really help people out and just give all your money to the homeless bums on the street. That will make everything better.

    I’ve heard that the “Plazoid” who hates the government, yet wants the government to pay for his lifestyle is not a native to the area and came up to cause problems. Is this true?

  12. the PLAZOID Says:

    In what wy is the government paying for my lifestyle?

  13. the PLAZOID Says:

    In what way is the governement paying for my lifesyle?
    In what way is my attitude “holier than thou”?
    In what way is my “head buried in the sand”?
    Clearly your analysis is lacking – actually, it is altogether absent.
    Thanks for playing.

    I don’t think the redneck locals fully realize who the HSU president is trying to attract with his new task force against the Arcata lifestyle. Yuppies. To the redneck republican that’s reading this: YUPIEES ARE WORSE THAN ‘HIPPIES’. Thanks. Go back to tending to your sheep.

    “Yuppies” are “better” then “Hippies” you classest fuck. I love you guys, “labels are like, um, bad and stuff, you fucking redneck, man, you don’t get it…”


    Just so you know, there isn’t a gun rack in any of my cars. I think Arcata NEEDS Yuppies, as they bring in something called “MONEY” to the area, and will bring this thing called “PROGRESS” The ’60s are over, there isn’t a Viet Nam, and you guys lost. But thanks for playing! Here are your parting gifts. A bar of soap and a bottle of shampoo!

    Hey Anonymous, have you noticed how Plazoid ‘refutes’ your accusations with questions? It’s a crafty way to avoid admitting the truth. That’s all I need to know about the Plazoid.

    true, Arcata is not in need of another “thief,” so, how much money are we spending to hire someone to hire a new city manager?

    The issues of medical marijuana and the legalization of marijuana need to be taken to the federal level. When people are educated in regards to the fraud that is the drug war and the reasons why weed was made illegal in the first place then laws can start to be changed. Right now there’s an abundance of ignorance and money which feed the drug war, the word “marijuana” is a buzz word which like all buzz words shuts off the brain and gets the adrenaline pumping.

    I wish I could change the system but before I can do that I have to change myself….we all need to change ourselves (some more than others) before we can change things. Follow the money, keep fighting, change tactics if need be.

    I let people down….I have to change myself before I can change the world.

    I need to change myself in a manner that is most funny, I’ve always wanted to be a girl.
