Newcomers and Oldtimers: Humboldt Marijuana Growing from Two Perspectives
People who came here in the Seventies and folks whose families have lived here for generations both love the Humboldt countryside and this extraordinary community. But they see the world differently. They remember it from different perspectives.
Below the voices of Jean Heritage, who arrived almost 40 years ago when the back-to-the-land movement was beginning, and Ernie Branscomb, whose family came here in the 1800’s, carry us with them as they talk about the birth of a culture–this unique marijuana culture–which could disappear entirely.
Take a little over seven minutes, pause, and explore the roots of the Humboldt Nation as we know it today.
This was excerpted from hours and hours of interviews recorded by Lisa Morehouse and myself for a roughly eight minute piece airing tonight between 6:30 and 7 pm on The California Report on KHSU.
