    I don't think DFS has gone out there in a year and a half.

    I believe blotter may work in the industry but I'm not sure where.

    A couple of my friends played football at College of the Redwoods in Eureka. Apparently one of the first things they were told when they got there was not to hike into the woods at all.

    I visited them in like early September and the entire town smelled like weed

    Started it this morning and watched the first two episodes.

    The people who made it seem pretty anti-weed/legalization and it completely ignores out some pretty key components (the cartels) to why the industry became the way it did over the last 25 years.

    Alderpoint was right around where I spent a lot of time. No one ever called it murder mountain. I watched a few episodes and it's a fairly decent representation of the area. Humboldt is definitely the wild west.

    I've been done trimming for almost a year and a half. I run a cbd store in the French Quarter now with the dude I used to grow and harvest for.

    Adjusting to a 40 plus hour week in a city has been a bit of a transition. I haven't worked a real job since I left Tallahassee in 2014.

    blotter is in northern Colorado

    so how/who (generally speaking) did your farm sell to? seems like it would be pretty easy for the police to target any shipping/trafficking via cars in this one county

    Watched this a month or so ago, pretty crazy how many people go missing up there

    And the police are powerless up there on Humboldt

    The most interesting part to me was how legalization and red tape has made it hard/impossible for some growers to go legit.

    Obviously not the intended effect of legalization.

    There's a network of growers, middlemen and buyers. It seems like it would be, but it's fairly easy to come in grab a few hundred pounds and dip.

    This is part of why it wasn't viable for us. Lots of unintended consequences of legalization. Lbs used to be 2000 plus off the farm now you can get em for 400. Most farmers were against rec. Tbh, I'm glad to be out of that side of the industry

    Many missing were found, but there seems to be a ton of missing ppl still. Safe assumption the majority of these are all drug related murders?

    It's not like you see missing persons flyers at an alarming rate. I had no idea it was a problem until Netflix told me.

    Most common stories I've heard of foul play involve trimmers not getting paid, trimmers stealing the weed or killing the owner, and girls being the subject of sexual harassment and assault.

    I think the missing people thing is more about ppl not wanting to be found and ppl living off the grid

    Imo there's a bit of sensationalism to sell a story from what I watched and can relate to.

    How much is true of him saying he was a political campaign manager and lobbyist true? Cuz' that sounded like some bs.

    Was indeed a campaign manager as recently as 2014. I don't know about the lobbying gig. Might be exaggerated. Never registered as one that I know of.

    I don't see those farmers making enough money to keep going on little plots like that. Things are already getting so saturated with all bud being grown in every corner of North America, being grown indoors. Prices are down about 30 percent up here. Concentrates and edibles are evolving as well and some people have moved on from bud form.

    Things are def saturated in Cali right now. A lot of the smaller growers that have a quality product will be fine. Maybe they won't command extreme prices like they used to, but they will still command a decent price for a quality product. So much garbage on shelves in Cali right now. The rules they came up with before product can hit the shelves totally destroyed the moisture content of the bud and it is noticeable in the flower.

    The difference between craft beer and quality cannabis is that I will drink a Bud Light every now and then, but I won't smoke boof. I expect there to be some big losses for some players in the legal weed game in the coming years, but the guys with the smaller gardens that know what they are doing should be fine in the long run.

    The ‘Walmart-ization’ of weed has to happen to eventually have true legalization. The beer/alcohol comparison is on the nose. There’s a market for bud light and miller and there’s also a market for local craft breweries that cost more but do it better. And still there’s people who brew their own so every ingredient they can control. I don’t think anyone in today’s America is complaining about the ability to get good beer. It will be the same way once legalization happens and the red tape is lessened.

    The notion that high quality marijuana grown the right way is just going to disappear with legalization is ridiculous and mainly comes from people who selfishly don’t want to give up their in-proportionedly sized slice of the pie. The farmers who are holding back the movement because they’re upset they can’t command the crazy prices the illegal nature market demands can get fucked (almost) as much as any politician holding it up based on the fact that they think it’s evil.

    I don’t think many people look back at all the violence and similar activity that came along during 1920s era prohibition as one of the evils/side affects of alcohol. I think most people today view those issues as the fault of the government for their shortsighted decision to make what should have been legal, illegal.

    The tone of this documentary definitely gives off a different vibe when it comes to the illegal nature of marijuana.
