Action Dates: 10/22/21 – 10/29/21 

In the month of October 2021 the Mendocino County Code Enforcement Division conducted investigations regarding non-permitted commercial cannabis cultivation at the listed locations below in the Laytonville, Ukiah and Willits areas. Any cannabis cultivation over the Medical or Adult Use exemption limit (as defined in Mendocino County Code Section 10A.17.030) is considered to be commercial cultivation. Please see the Mendocino County Code (MCC) Section 10A.17 for additional information.

Code Enforcement investigations confirmed that commercial cannabis cultivation was taking place at these locations without either a County Cultivation Permit or a State Cultivation License, and/or cultivation was taking place in violation of MCC Sec. 10A.17 requirements. It was determined that there were significant community quality of life concerns in these neighborhoods. The responsible parties abated the cannabis plants after Code Enforcement engagement.

10/22/21 – 22600 Block of East Side Road – 252 Cannabis plants abated

10/22/21 – 3900 Block of North State Street – 17 Cannabis plants abated

10/28/21 – 41300 Block of North Highway 101 – 617 Cannabis plants abated

10/29/21 – 4500 Block of Lakewood Drive – 12 Cannabis plants abated



  1. Some of these pot busts seem a little fishy to me. Found out that one busted had been legal for a long time. When they put in the legal paperwork for this grow, it seemed to have sat on a desk for months, now they are busted. What is REALLY going on??

    • Marcia this has been happening all year…. mendocino county is destroying the legal cannabis industry. The permit process is painfully slow, under staffed and unable to answer questions or provide guidance to program participants and quick to come out and destroy plants vs. taking reasonable steps to resolve issues as outlined in guidlines.

  2. what a waste of money you Eradicated 12 or 17 plants how stupid is that get a life police department what did that cost us how many people are involved getting paid the whole time unbelievable

    • Code enforcement is civil.
      Police deal with crimes.
      Big difference.

      Code enforcement is responding to complaints made by citizens…usually neighbors.
