New Yorker Covers Cannabis Conversion In Humboldt

Jun 5, 2019

There was a certain amount of trepidation in Humboldt County about the legalization of marijuana in California; first medical, then recreational.  In some parts of the county, people had been growing cannabis in the shadows for generations. 

With legalization comes regulation and rules and bookkeeping and taxation.  And it's been a hard transition for growers in the so-called Emerald Triangle, a situation reported by Emily Witt in The New Yorker.  

She visits to talk about her research and what it turned up.
