Update on Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

We filed an action in Butte County on May 17, 2018 with the intent of having a jury decide punitive damages. We would be the first party to bring the defeat device case to jury trial.  Peer reviewed studies proved thousands of people with lung diseases died from the fraud.  


Humboldt's Identity Crises

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Saturday, April 21, 2018 Under: Humboldt Cannabis
The only reason Humboldt County is on anyone's cultural map is because a few hippies planted some cannabis seeds here in the 1970's. The Founders brought the seeds back from Afghanistan, planted the seeds, and nurtured the seeds into Humboldt cannabis, creating a legend. Their culture of denying modern society's routines and customs enabled the Founders to focus on a plant. Their livelihood was tied directly to their ability to produce a quality product. On this level, the Founders were no different than Steve Jobs, but very different than say a politician or civil servant. 

Now, we embark on a new journey of cannabis commercialization, which should ultimately be a net positive for our community. The damage the black market has wreaked on Humboldt is expansive and a subject for another day.

It is time to discuss the Founder's path to the white market. The gatekeepers to the white market are the civil servants and politicians, who tend to socialize with other civil servants and politicians, and not hippies from the 70's. Multiple times a week people come through my office and express a belief Humboldt is based on cronyism and not meritocracy. This belief unfortunately is accurate. Our politicians need a system of cronyism to remain employed. 

The problem with cronyism is it punishes cultural diversity. Those who benefit in a such a system are people who are culturally similar to the politicians. I refuse to support conduct which impairs cultural diversity because it makes our community monolithic with fragility being the byproduct. Monolithic cultures always end in a disaster fueled by group think, as evidenced by the collapse of many societies



On the path to the white market the Founders are led by Ed Denson and Robert Sutherland. Ed Denson spent decades protecting folks from prison sentences becoming a master criminal lawyer. But this industry is moving into the civil arena, and the need to redress civil grievances is ripe. The Founders now have my assistance in guaranteeing their voice will continue to be heard.

My adoration of the healing properties of cannabis is no secret. Anyone who defames the name of this plant through greed, cronyism, or environmental harm is my adversary
