a “growing” economy

The easy money growing California kind bud is gone. Who isn’t selling it these days?  Between legit storefront cannabis clubs and the guys you’ve always gone to,(unshaven dudes with  maybe a ratty Volvo wagon, maybe a dog), the chronic is everywhere. Easy to grow, nowhere to go. 

Case in point:  while fueling up early one morning a white guy in a big pick up walks over to me from his pump. 

“Hey bro, wanna trade some nugs for 5 bucks gas money?”  He held out his hand and it looked like two hairy green pinecones were resting there.  Gigantic buds. Something Bigfoot would smoke.  

“I can’t really use that,” I told him. Probably should have bought them, trade the kid at the gas station behind the register for a couple donuts and some coffee. It was early.  I wasn’t thinking that way. Besides, those donuts are lousy. I can drink bad coffee but bad donuts make me sad. 


  1. As an unshaven guy with a Volvo and dogs, I have to ask why you couldn’t find a use for those nugs. But yeah, I guess times are tough.

  2. The cannabis prohibition is really starting to look like the alcohol prohibition, at least in Canada and the US…

  3. Yo, Everybody should use more cannabis. If you don’t like to smoke it then eat it or rub it on your skin. It is really good for you, way better than any whitey folks will believe. It doesn’t kill brain cells or make you sterile, all lies invented by rich white politically motivated pig fuckers.

  4. I haven’t gotten high since a math class. I really should have taken it, but I had prepared myself to say no, expecting him to be asking for money for nothing.

    Bruce, question: why would i be rubbing weed on myself?

  5. Seriously, John. Give the guy five bucks and turn and sell those nugs for ten to someone else. Where is your entrepreneurial self gone?
    Although I do understand the being prepared to just say no to someone asking for money that no matter what they end up asking for you just say no.

  6. John, because weed protects you from all the toxic shit in the world. Probly make your skin look better too, and smell finer.

  7. My name is Jon. Dammit Al, or Richard, how long have we known each other? J O N. not a silent H, a non existent H. Really though, not a big deal. Just wanted a chance to rant. Now you got Bruce saying John too.

  8. Strange, Usually I am very sensitive to that. Since I don’t like the richard at all….. Jon.

  9. What math class you talking about? Are you going to school?

    Comment by Lyle_S — January 21, 2011 @ 10:06 pm

  10. Again, sorry about that Al. You’re a good man. And Lyle, I just mean to say I really haven’t smoked weed in a long time. At least a full year.
