Life on Reefer Ridge

I have had a home here for many years and once loved this town. I have now come to hate it. While it is now illegal to grow pot in the town of Paradise (I call it reefer ridge) there has not been a time in the last 3 years I have been able to step out either my back door or my front door without being blown over by the stink of pot. I cannot use my yard, I let my garden die years ago as it is too sickening to work in it. I am harassed by the pot growing neighbors. I have not been able to tolerate sitting on my back porch for years. I feel as if I live under house arrest as I have to stay indoors because of the constant stink. The town will not enforce the code. The police do not deal with marijuana grows. I was actually told by a high up town leader that I was not entitled to useful enjoyment of my property and was told "so what" when I explained how my property is worth nothing because of the trash filled pot grow next door. Ironically, I have to disclose the problem when I try and sell, yet it is illegal to grow pot. This town needs to make up its mind, make pot growing legal so we hard working tax payers can sell our homes as prime pot growing properties and leave this drug town. Otherwise enforce the pot growing ban.

Amenities in Paradise Why does your amenities list for Paradise not include the Gold Nugget Museum and the Paradise Performing Arts Center(PPAC)? Both of these facilities are exceptional, especially for such a small town. The museum has had exhibits from the Smithsonian. The PPAC is a large and beautifully designed theater with excellent seating (not a bad seat in the house) and wonderful acoustics.
