Residents of Santa Barbara’s upscale Montecito neighborhood, which is also home to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are facing unusual problems in the area due to a large cannabis farm.
According to a report in Sunday MirrorPlanting cannabis is spreading stench in the area. One of the locals even claimed that the smell was so strong that he had to stop and pull while driving on the road.
“The stench was getting stronger and they were moving. I was driving on the freeway and the stench was so strong. It doesn’t make you high, but it’s not what you want to drive at 70 miles per hour.” I had to pull, “said resident Gregory Gandrod.
The 60-year-old added, “He has completely lost the train of thought to me. A lot of people here are in trouble.”
Harry and Meghan moved into the مل 11 million mansion in the area in July last year, which they share with their son Archie, a two- and two-month-old labyrinth. The 16-bathroom house, which has a sauna, library and cinema, is surrounded by many famous neighbors, including Oprah Winfrey, who lives in a large Sea View mansion nearby. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom live with their daughter in a mansion just down the street.
Just 10 minutes from Sussex’s nine-bedroom luxury pad is a fully legal grass plant with 20 large greenhouses full of plants.
Several residents complained about the specific odor coming from the factory, after which the Santa Barbara Coalition of Responsible Cannabis and the Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers promised to install a “stench control system” on the farm.
“This is good news for us and for Harry and Meghan,” Gandrod said of the planned stench control measures.
Meanwhile, another neighbor, Richard Maynards, noted, “Growing cannabis near here became legal in 2016 and many farmers jumped on the bandwagon.”
Harry had previously confessed to smoking as a teenager, and was sent to a one-day rehabilitation clinic at the age of 17 by his father, Prince Charles. Meanwhile, his wife, who has also been involved in marijuana in the past, allegedly gave a joint portion to film producer Trevor Engelson at his first wedding in Jamaica, where the drug is legal.
