This is funny but also sad. One of my favorite oakland based metal and fire artist coop workshop got priced out of both their warehouse and the whole area as anything they could move into was outbid by pot farmers. They've ended up buying a place out in Nevada near where That Thing in the Desert takes place for what 3 months rent in oakland would get them.

Back on the good side, so far many pot farmers and sellers in oakland are quite happy to pay their high taxes which Oakland has been using for improvements.

Oregon has enough weed for the next six years, our government is exploring how to do inter-state sales without fiddling with the feds, if alcohol distribution has taught me anything. It's not gonna work.

Apparently we are really, really good at growing weed. Why they gotta use housing for that is beyond me. I know not much else is going on in Humboldt, for example

They call it a "gold rush". Speculators are rushing in. Most of them are going to lose out bad when the price crashes. Might make weed smokers happy though.

I am now playing this non-stop. Except during conference calls, and I might keep it on for some of them.

The Internet has a Cat! Meet Purrli, the Online Cat Purr Generator.

Currently favouring the sleepy, relaxed and close weightings.

Yeah, most of the people I knew bought like a can or two because of the artists. (Including me. I liked Daniel Clowes. Still do, I guess.) But they all seemed pretty conscious of the fact that it was a cynical marketing ploy. People weren't going to keep buying it or anything.

I get pretty nostalgic for when young people were anti-consumerist, but maybe that wasn't as widespread as I remember it. And I guess I don't really know how much of the online brand shilling you see is organic and how much is paid marketing. It's still pathetic either way, though.

Take that, influencers! I don't think you're cool!

Speaking of influencers, did you hear about how people are putting fake "promoted" content on their instagram feeds, to make it look like sponsors are already interested in them, to attract actual sponsors?

The mind wobbles.
