About Elk Grove
With a population of 165,000, Elk Grove is the 31st largest city in California. Interestingly, it is also the second fastest growing city in America at one point recently, which means things were happening.
It wasn't until 1808 that the Spanish first set foot in the territory which was to become Elk Grove.
The original turf had luxurious canopies of oak and cottonwood complemented with native grapes and blue currents providing sustenance to supplement freshly hunted game.
Elk Grove, founded in 1850 and operated as a stage for travelers on route from Sacramento to the Bay Area. ,In 1868 the Western Division of the Central Pacific Railroad arrived and the city built a hotel to accommodate travelers. This set the stage for the community to move forward as a going concern. The community remained rural based with farming sustaining most folk. Fast forward to 1980 when land developers came to town. This period sets in motion many real estate projects that resulted in Elk Growing growing at an exponential rate.
In the boom and bust that is the history of America, the subprime crisis hit heavily in the town. Few people caught in the middle have recovered.
The Top Employers are in the IT and public sector, with most people commuting to their jobs in Sacramento and the Bay Area.

Growing Weed In Sacramento - 2013
"You have hosing throughout the house, you have wires exposed." - undercover Cop
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department knows the pungent smell of marijuana very well. They've spent the past month investigating reports of illegal marijuana grows. Recently, they found an illegal grow operation in a house in South Sacramento. There were 650 plants in the three bedrooms, kitchen and garage.
But why is it very beneficial to legalize marijuana? So you don't have amateurs running around producing untested pot, endangering the community (with fires) and wasting the cops valuable time, not to mention the tax payer's hard earned dollars.
