Dispatches from the Old Man in the Hills

Through cannabis prohibition many strong, defiant, and boundless individuals have adopted ideologies that reflect their situation. Here in Humboldt and greater Northern California, the Wild West still exists. Many have flourished without help from the government or mainstream America. Roots are strong and networks are entrenched. The old timers are superbly united with their principles – as they fittingly should be. The corner-of-the-world they have carved out for themselves is threatened. These more-then-mysterious men and women walk the line between Bukowski and Thoreau – they hold a flame like terriers on the prowl. They represent America’s counter culture… That said, the Humboldt Underground would like to introduce: the old man in the hills…

The views and opinions expressed by the old man in the hills do not reflect the views and opinions of the Humboldt Underground. HU feels obligated to provide a voice for all in our community. Our goal is to move the conversation forward and all points-of-view are legitimate (unless hateful or discriminatory). Every voice in our community deserves to be heard.


wrong question carpetbaggers

i have been here awhile and have seen the trends…. people complain about the carpetbaggers coming to ruin our lives and our livelihood but I say to you it’s already happened… i remember the days when folks would come to town to buy weed and they would ask two questions is it organic? is it indoor or outdoor? These are the only questions that matter but now the only thing anyone asks is what strain is it?

why………..? mostly because of the clubs and dumb ass rappers singing about some shit they smoked that got them high well guess what bitches we got way more awesome strains but some rapper or club owner never heard of them

remember lavender or snow cap or snow or haze or skunk or trainwreak or afgooy or strawberry rock or big bud or bubble gum or all the others that we crossed with them and made wonderful things ..but no we don’t have some two bit rapper or millionaire club owner to say it’s cool to smoke this

how about you stick your nose in the bag and sniff or maybe smoke some if you want to know how good it is

so what happens is people start growing what they can sell…… capitalism… that is what we live in and I can accept that because capitalism has been very good to me…. I surfed the supply and demand world and came out on top for the most part

so the carpetbaggers have been here and they are here to stay

they have already ruined your life because now you have to grow the og the sour diesel or the kush but don’t forget to put a snow cap in the corner for your head …….if you haven’t lost the strain already

you poor bastards

the old man in the hills

the old man in the hills like ie cummings does not use punctuation or capitalization and like james michener likes run on sentences and unlike all you lemmings diving into the corporate way of doing things….. he is free
