Marijuana Town Pushback
An old mill dominates the horizon on Arcata Bay on Oct. 25, 2012 in Arcata, Calif. Since the collapse of timber and fishing, marijuana has moved into the culture and economy of Arcata, to the point that many people who support the legalization of marijuana are fed up with the proliferation of large-scale growing operations taking over homes in residential neighborhood. The city is voting on a measure to impose a stiff tax on excessive electricity use in an effort to drive marijuana grow houses out of town. (AP Photo/Jeff Barnard)
