HUMBLE HUMBOLDT COUNTY-In the past, we've had rainbows here in Wyoming for a month long-pain-in-the-ass visit. The Rainbows claim that they live "light on the land"- that is what they say on their website, but the reality is that they have no f*#king clue- After one week, a spin off of the major Rainbow Coalition (20 people or less) left enough garbage to fill three long bed pick-ups to overflowing. When they all got together south of here, they dug holes and even the Oregon Trail ruts that 100,000 people crossing this area left during a ten year period were nothing to the damage left by those groovy, pot smoking, sex orgy addicted morons. I'd bet most of those folks come from Humboldt. And Chaz, remember when the government took over the Mustang Ranch and started operating it- they couldn't stay above water selling liquor and sex. How hard could that have been?
Legalization would allow for product provenance documentation and create a market for sustainable fair trade production to compete with big business but legal production while reducing the availability of illegally produced / smuggled product that has avoided basic regulation and taxation in the convenient, legal retail market. People buy all kinds of things that are produced inappropriately, but the market for those products can be minimized through a combination of consumer conscience, basic source tracking by retailers and minimal regulation, paid for in part, by taxing the product. In addition, when home production for personal use is OKed, as it should be, the market competition for responsibly produced, high quality products increases.
nope, really, I didn't cash in on any unwashed people orgies of any kind. AND, you're right, we are a bunch of sh#t kickers.. where did I put that Merle Haggard 8 track? we could plug it in when we go over to clean up after all those well intended folks..you did make me laugh!
