Last year Eureka/Arcata was number one in The Daily Beasts lists of the pot capitals of the United States. This year we’re only number ten. I could expend a lot of angst and hand-wringing on this. (Cue emotional questions—Has the glut on the market unseated Humboldt? Will we ever regain our preeminence?) My heart sank along with Humboldt’s standings as I looked in vain for us among the top three. But then as I read the breathless commentary accompanying the photo (not very good), I snickered.
Over the hills and through the redwoods, pot is big business in Humboldt County. County sheriffs entered a home last week and found 9 pounds of marijuana…
Isn’t 9 pounds covered by a good 215 doctor? I mean, really. Talk about your baby grows…
I don’t think the Daily Beast is au courant on all things pot.
Seriously, 9 pounds at today’s prices? Not exactly big news here in Humboldt.
Thanks to @redwoodbigfoot for the tip about the Daily Beast
