Don't get me wrong, this idea has many flaws at first, yet could be turned into a possible worthwhile organization. My spelling is not the best so bare with me. I hear allot of people talk about political beliefs and differences. Most people have a opinion on things that are screwed up with our government. The list could go on for pages. What is so special about my concern? Well, it deals with Oregon. I have only been in this state for a year and plan on being here for awhile. There are so many things I miss about my old state but there are too many things to appreciate about Oregon. One of those things is the vast amount of land open to the public. When you have over 50% of the land open or owned by the public, (tax payers of this state) you have a huge burden on the state to regulate, up keep, and monitor those lands. Talking about hundreds of thousands of acres. The state does not have the resources including man power to do that. Let alone multiple agencies having sole jurisdiction and/or responsibilities over parts of the land under non-private ownership. The joint working relationships and communication are at par, at best. A state with such vast FREE resources and opportunities to enjoy, experience, and truly turn into a life passion of hobbies, activities, and even family outings, should be such with no fear of greedy, selfishness, and even harmful beings using these lands for their illegal and sole purposes. What is this guy getting at? I'm sure allot of you and others enjoy using these lands for multiple purposes. Hunting, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, gold panning, shooting, exploring, photography, and many more. So what if you go into the states and federal governments lands that are for use by us and are confronted by a person or group of individuals that are using the land for illegal purposes and use fear or harm and manipulation to either keep you from coming back, to leave immediately, to report it, or even attempt to take your life for the sole purpose of greed and money in protecting their area they have chosen to grow, harvest and in the future sell illegal drugs. I as one, do not want to get into the ethics or argument if Weed should be legal or not. Personally I could care less. But when one has to alter their plans to enjoy visiting lands that are set, paid, and kept up by our governments because some, and a growing trend of those are illegal's from Mexico, want to use fear as a force to keep us from using those lands....Well, I'm tired of it and it makes me sick that more is not being done to stop it. I understand maybe some of use this does not apply being they do not venture in the southern part of the state. But even in the northern part, west and east, people are using these tactics. I'm not racist. I don't care if your white, black, brown, green, or whatever. If you are protecting public lands with fear and force to better your illegal activities, you have a strong hard spot in my mind. Some of you may know someone that is a neighbor that grows pot and can argue, "they are just trying to provide for their family." You know what I think, they are screwing the rest of the people of this state from accessing those resources. Do it on their own property. Why should I or anyone else have to worry about getting a gun pulled on them while on state or federal property. They shouldn't. And the time has come where enough is enough, and people need to do something about it.
