San Luis Obispo Fire Department investigators discovered a hash conversion lab at a trailer that was engulfed in flames Wednesday night following several explosions.

Four fire trucks and a total of 25 firefighters worked to quickly extinguish the blaze that had already spread from the double-wide on the 1700 block of Lynn Drive to a neighboring trailer. Several explosions shook nearby homes and businesses at the Laguna Shopping Center.

Fire department investigators discovered a plethora of butane canisters and a large amount of marijuana in the home.

Officers arrested the homeowner, 55-year-old Candice Garcia, for possession and manufacturing hash and booked her into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Her bail has been set at $500,000.

Neighbors complained to the City for years about the odor from this mobile home. City Code Enforcement, as inept as they were claimed “we can’t do anything, it is a trailer park.” Now we see the end result, but fortunately no one was hurt. Sounds like the dog got out, but this all could have been avoided if the City had fulfilled its obligation of proactive code enforcement with the passage of measure Y. Lies, lies and more lies. Promote the inept and morally corrupt. Maybe, Katie can take the dog in at her Malibu estate???

Oh boys and girls, whats worse than the illegal drug activity… she probably was running this business without a license!!!

I guess I’m not sure how the train of conversation gets from “hash” refining to god. Oh well. The best

description of the tribal god of iron age Canaan, aka, YHWH, Elohim is:“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Bill Cosby was a great inspiration for Teddy. It’s how he studied Bible prophecy

How deftly Ted’s words of wisdom fall upon the ears. Ravaged by decades of feminist savagery his words sooth the troubled male soul. That is why I’m inviting men who are recovering from these injustices to visit us at There you’ll find the tools essential in your recovery from the feminist doctrine of oppression. There you’ll find a complete listing of previously owned Jaguar motor cars, available a affordable prices. There you’ll find the gentlemans guide to Bangkok, and a complete listing of Central Coast massage parlors. There you’ll find a forum where you can share your thoughts with

other men who’ve suffered the indignities of the feminist narrative. Strength through solidarity.

I wonder if they will have to evacuate some of the surrounding residents. I don’t know what is involved with making hash oil (except for canisters of butane gas), but it may end up being a hazardous waste danger.

This incident really makes one wonder about safety issues involved with living in homes placed closely together, or, worse, attached by common walls, like condos. Candice Garcia, the woman in the booking photo, looks pretty danged normal to me, yet she was booked for an incident that could have killed innocent neighbors.

I have zero sympathy for anyone who would put others at risk by doing something illegal, which is what Garcia is said to have done with her hash-oil production. Anybody with any sense would have known that storing butane canisters, in a residence close to other residences, would be endangering others.

If I was her neighbors, I would be plenty ticked off, and would be sure to be at her hearings to voice my opinion.

Slanders owes me an apology.

He lacks the mental capacity to apologize.

Usually it is a lack of humility that prevents one from apologizing. I think that may be true for Ted.

At any rate, the Bible’s strongest precepts are based in “Do to others what you would have done to you,” humility, and kindest towards others.

Ted will eventually apologize. He claims he is a man of God and, if this is true, then he doesn’t want to risk his own Salvation by refusing to make a simple apology.

Not many people like admitting they were wrong. I’ve found typing it in Latin, “mea culpa” followed by specifying the bonehead mistake I made, eases the pain for me.

P.S. I think Ted’s posts are funnier than heII, but I don’t take them seriously because, when it comes to the biblical verbage as reasons for his opinions, I don’t think he is really serious. I think it is tongue in cheek, and it is very, very funny (to me–your mileage may vary).

I agree with Mary. Teds posts are laughing stock with my 89 year old uncle who was a

preacher for many years! keep it coming Ted Slanders my uncle can’t wait for my

Sunday visits to read him all your loony bin posts!!!!!!!! GOD LOVE YA!

My dear Cindy,

I, as a superior man to a woman, as the bible blatantly describes in detail, do NOT owe you or any woman an apology. I went into great detail on this topic within the link below.

Your presence here at CCN has broken so many biblical commands and laws within the scriptures, that my wrists are showing signs of carpal tunnel syndrome because of all the praying that I have done in your behalf to get right with God!!!

No dear, barring any apology to a biblically second class woman, your first inclination was a meth lab, was it not? Sure it was. Meth and hash are two mutually exclusive entities, which precludes that you were wrong in your assumption in what caused the explosions.

If anyone should apologize, it should be you , because not only do you continue to speak out as a woman, which goes directly against the scriptures, but you were wrong when doing so about the cause!

Dear, if you’re going to follow Christianity, at one time in your life, you’re going to have to read your bible!

“But I suffer not a woman to teach, NOR TO USURP THE AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN, BUT TO BE IN SILENCE.” (Timothy 2:12)

Listen up Berqa Boy, you are nothing more than a false prophet who insists on bastardizing scripture, just as you have Christianity.

Great attempt at a save, Ted! However, perhaps you should re-think your approach to this issue before your own pridefulness puts your Salvation at risk.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men….

—Phillippians 2:3-11, English Standard Version

If you make a mistake, it is simply a mistake. If you make a mistake, it doesn’t matter whether you are a woman or a man, you need to rectify it as soon as possible.

However, if it wrongfully casts another person in a bad light, then you must humble yourself and make a simple apology.

The road to salvation has many stumbling blocks related to pride, Ted. So do some godly warm-up exercises, and drop-kick your pride out the door.


The first law of the universe is “cause and effect.” Therefore, the “cause” of the explosions in this story was from a “hash” lab. Cindy assumed that it was from a “meth lab”, and it was not. A very simple and logical deduction is the fact that what she proposed as the cause, was in fact, wrong. Get it? Take this logical deduction into a court of law to fully see it’s direct outcome.

Mary, I realize that you’re not a Christian. You are biblically a Sister of Eve that has gone astray. Therefore, you do not have the explicit laws of Christianity to follow as a 2nd class woman in the way of remaining silent as 2 Timothy 2:12 so dictates. Nonetheless, even though you’re hell bound because of this fact, I still remain a superior Christian man over any woman as the inspired word of my particular God tells me. Therefore, I don’t have to take any lip from any woman, and especially you!

The fact remains of the actual cause of these explosions, and it was not what our pseudo-christian mascot, Cindy, proposed! 2+2=4.

Remember, always borrow money from pessimists – they don’t expect it back, praise!

Dear Ted:

1. I love it when you end a post with “praise!” Reminds me of the Baptist churches in Arkansas. I’m sure they frequently use the term, sprinkled amongst conversation, elsewhere, but it was when I visited my relatives in Arkansas that I most willingly, and regularly, went to church.

2. Technically, I am still a Christian. Just as, technically, despite your lack of humility, you are still a Christian.

3. Technically, you DO have to take lip from me, regardless of my gender. This is an internet message board, and both genders are allowed to post here (although you may be making the moderators reconsider letting males post here–just kidding).

4. Since you replied to my post, you must have read at least parts of it. Therefore, you CHOSE to “take my lip.” I would suggest if you don’t want to “take my lip,” then you cease in the self-abusive process of reading my posts.

5. Humility, Ted…humility. It is what Jesus taught, and even you are not above Jesus.

P.S. I voted “up” on your post, just because you are such an enthusiastic rascal.

To quote Teddy…”Jesus H. Christ” what were you thinking? He has yet to grant you the permission to vote!

Mary and Ted’s excellent adventure…lol.

Teddy, you make me ashamed that we’re the same gender, Cindy, I offer you my apology that any man thinks like slanders does. Ted, you’re following the wrong god if it doesn’t think all people are equal!


Then I am following the wrong God because He does not think everyone is equal.

“That whosoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.” (2 Chronicles 15:13)

I will pray for you tonight because you called the Hebrew/Christian God the wrong God concept! Blaspheme!

So most of the world is wrong, and everyone born before Jesus was wrong, but you are right? Just getting this straight. Religion was invented to benefit the priests, they didn’t want to work to eat so they convinced the ignorant to serve them. I just snowballed from there.

So; things don’t necessarily go better with chemistry!
