Who is the Enemy?

One of my favorite bloggers took up the defense of the Emerald Triangle growers.  I’m going to reprint the beginning here but support his ideas by going to this post and adding any thoughts you have. Kantrite of The Cannabis Post says,

The world of Marijuana is changing. There is fear of the Mega-warehouse business-farmer taking over. There is fear of places like Orange County and San Diego jumping into the Pot game with venture capitalists having deep pockets that seem never ending when it comes to the Green Rush. This change has the average Pothead crying, “Wal-Mart is here! Wal-Mart is here!”

It is also changing how we get our pot. The days of meeting in alleys and in parking lots are over. Going to your dealers, hanging, smoking, until next week when you repeat the same process. Now, many of us get our pot from dispensaries, at least here in California.

What hasn’t changed is… someone has to grow it.

While warehouse pot is just now getting off the ground, the Mendo-Humboldt area has been cultivating Cannabis for more than fifty years. They know a little about growing weed.

Proposition 19 brought out the best and worst of our Pot Generation. While many tended the fields, pounding the pavement, knocking on doors and spreading the message, others bemoan the movement. I do not fault those that found Prop.19 lacking. I could only agree with that assessment. But to attack those who live and sometimes die by the weed, I’m shocked by people’s outrage.

Go here to finish.

  • Since it didn’t pass this time, I suggest that local growers copy write and trademark their brands, names and logos before the next round of legalization.

    This way, if it does become legal, the name brands will be in the hands of those that did the work. They would then have the choice to grow their business or sell out to the big internationals.

  • Tom Sebourn, you can’t get a registered trademark on a cannabis product.

    Copyright search is down until the 15th.

    Trademark search shows a couple successful registrations for logos but those are all for t-shirts or hats.

    There was a category to submit under called “medical marijuana” for a few months but they pulled the category and all submissions for that category.

  • Start a corporation with the name you want tradmarked. That should do it with this political climate. Corporations have special rights and I’ll bet that if some big agra company wanted to call their brand by the name of your corporation, you would win that.
