On October 25th, the Kern County Sheriff’s Office obtained the license to search the lands of Arvin area. With the help of California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and FBI, the authorities came together and searched 11 different fields in the area. And surprisingly, they found $1 billion worth of Cannabis plant.
There were several hemp fields in California which were uncovered as 10 million illicit cannabis plants. And their black market value was $1 billion, which is some serious money.
The troubling thing is all these plants were cultivated under the appearance of a legitimate hemp operation. Also the crops got tested for the their level of THC. And it was found that the results were “well above” the legal 0.3 percent limit for industrial hemp production. Which essentially made the plants cannabis.
Selling of hemp is legal in the Kern Country. There won’t be any action against anyone who sells it. But there is one condition applied – the THC levels must not exceed the 0.3 percent limit. It is then, that the crops become illegal.
Generally hemp has many other domestic purposes like making of ropes, strong fabrics, paper, construction materials, cosmetics and food products. But in California, the crop was cultivated to produce cannabidiol. It is responsible to produce the “high” or intoxicated state of the said person who uses it.
The area that was searched, remains under scrutiny of the authorities. And the county also remains quiet on the owner of the land. They haven’t disclosed the identity of the owner of the $1 billion stash. But legal action will be taken against the related person.
Rural America needs help with Affordable Housing
America has been facing the issue of affordable housing in major cities and fast-growing urban areas for so many years now, that we almost take it for granted. But what we did not see coming, as a nation, was the same problem sprouting in rural America. This is what is going on, right now, as people from all financial spectrums struggle to find a house that they can afford. Here is why and which solutions should be looked at.
Not enough Jobs, Education and Health Care Availability
What explains housing difficulties is the same as in all other economic sectors: The offer is not sufficient for the demand. And why is that, in rural America? The answer is simple: There are not enough jobs to be handed out in these parts. Also, the children lack sufficient education, and the people are not provided with good health care facilities. Therefore, you don’t find contractors that want to build more homes to invest in the future, in these regions, even though there are more people living there, every year.
Also, most of the houses that exist need to be renovated. They require new facade systems, in order to become more energy efficient. The people that live in these parts, barely make enough to make ends meet, and they have to pay higher energy bills, simply because they can’t afford new aluminium windows and doors, that would greatly reduce their costs. New sustainable materials need to be added outside their walls, to protect their home from high or low temperatures outside. But instead, they are simply fighting each other to find a house that they can live in, at an inflated price, and that won’t even provide them sufficient protection in the warmest and coolest months of the year.
Public Investment is required to start the Process
Money is at the core of the problem. To built more houses, or to renovate the ones that already exist in rural America, a large investment will need to be made. Since it is clear that private owners are scared to enter into this rebuilding of the land by themselves, the different levels of governments need to envision new help plans that will make all this possible. But it isn’t the only investment they must make.
Today, wages are not growing as fast as they were before. We find ourselves in uncertain times, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis and the current war going on in Ukraine. Having a larger part of the population to buy a house, is simply impossible in view of these issues. And yet, this is exactly what rural America needs. Therefore, young adults need to be helped, in some ways, in order to create a larger group of potential home buyers. This will help kick-start the market of housing in rural America, which hopefully will create a dynamic that will continue on, with wealthier individuals investing in construction, in these areas.
Affordable housing has become a necessity in rural America. Otherwise, small towns will continue to disappear. This is not a long-term solution for a growing America, that wants to lead by example.
