The Green, Green Grass of Home...
In this episode we speak with Bryan, a man from my home state of Indiana who, in his almost 30 year relationship with marijuana, spent 5 years working on various types of ganja farms in Humboldt County. When Oregon legalized marijuana and offered licenses over the internet, he paid his fee and moved up to work on a small recreational grow.
He tells us the how and why he chose marijuana as a career path and assures us he is ‘in it for the plant’. When we asked him if and/or what he misses about the black market, his quick response was precise and passionate.
We discuss the possibilities, both good and bad, in store for CA with legalization and the strict regulations in place for the marijuana industry.
When asked what he believes the cannabis culture can offer to the world at large, Bryan tells us what Humboldt taught him that he didn’t learn anywhere else. I’ll give you a hint, he refers to many of the farmers he knew in Humboldt as ‘Soil Builders’.
We hope you enjoy this conversation as we are winding down this season on the origin stories and looking towards where Humboldt’s marijuana culture is headed.
