SoHumBorn Talks About What the People Don't Talk About
“Look! Look at what those ugly pot growers are causing now.” SoHumborn explained to KHSU Through the Eyes of Women host, Kathy Srabian why she worries about writing about the bad aspects of the marijuana culture. She knows that any negative images can cause outsiders to proclaim its small mom and pop farmers as evil.
Srabian encourages SHB with gentle insightful questions to offer an intimate look at her writing and the cannabis world. This interview is a must for anyone wanting to understand growers and for fans of SoHumBorn. Go here to listen. I teared up several times listening to the thoughtful conversation the two women shared.
Afterward becoming impassioned because of her talk with SHB, Srabian attended last weekend’s HuMMAP event last weekend and came out with a renewed determination to discuss the secretive culture and the ways that the local economy is dependent on it. She worries in a post
Can Humboldt County residents come to terms with and embrace the fact that marijuana cultivation brings much needed revenue to our towns and enclaves? Can growers and community members work together and reach an understanding that marijuana cultivation could be used to make our communities stronger…
Following up on her commitment to discuss marijuana issues, Srabian interviewed me this last Monday and that piece will air next Monday. I’m excited that so many people are beginning to discuss the ways this county can help and profit from the underground economy in our midst.
