La, La, La
Sent by a reader who was amused by my statement that marijuana is going to be legalized and we can stick our fingers in our ears and sing, “la, la, la” or we can have a plan.
I’m kind of a La, la, la type of person myself usually but this time, the fallout threatens Humboldt County and the culture I’ve come to love so I can’t ignore the signs. Guerilla in the Midst says the Green Rush will be over with the legalization and that is just the way it will be. He doesn’t seem to think there is much we can do. I disagree. I think that limiting amount of plants grown per grower at least for awhile will help build a foothold for smaller growers. Hand manicuring produces a finer product I’ve been told. Big corporations will use machines. Fresher product which can be put out by small farmers in local areas (local being relative here) will pack more flavor and medicine than bigger more unwieldy businesses can match.
