While federal agents prowled remote mountain areas on a sweep to uproot marijuana, local authorities were forced to send their eradication teams home because of funding problems. Mendocino County is disbanding its marijuana team today because the state has not renewed its funding. The sheriffs of Trinity and Humboldt counties plan to dissolve their teams unless they get state help.

The State Lands Commission, in a slap at Gov. George Deukmejian, voted Wednesday to prohibit offshore oil drilling in state waters off Northern California by declaring the region an ocean sanctuary. Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, and state Controller Gray Davis--who together form a majority of the three-member commission--moved to ban offshore oil drilling along 214 miles of the Mendocino and Humboldt County coastline.
