Whether you know it or not, we’re all affected by marijuana.
Weed has played a major role in Humboldt’s culture, politics, social structure and economy, and it’s emerging from the subculture faster than ever before.
We’re excited to launch a long-term series called “The Humboldt Chronicles: Dispatches from Marijuana Country.”
It’s hosted by SoHum journalist Kym Kemp and debuts on KHUM at 6pm on Thursday, February 2nd.
It will also air on The Point KWPT and 94.1 KSLG.
The first episode explores the macroeconomics of marijuana in Humboldt County. As one business owner told us, we’re all in the marijuana business whether we like it or not.
• How much money are we talking about here? Thousands? Billions?
• How does that money fan out into the community?
• What determines the wholesale value of marijuana?
After the debut, series producers Kemp, Chuck Rogers and Mike Dronkers will host a live call-in community forum about the episode, along with a live online chat via LostCoastOutpost.com.
