Perfect, dude go back to that place you came from. Impairment breaks as you go down the river, really? I get it happens all the time but marketing it is self serving at best.....Good job delta bravo.

I just accepted a job in portland. Looking for a room to rent there on craigslist.. learned that I could get a discount on rent if I helped with a grow. (finding a place that isn't 420 friendly is difficult) - very different culture there in Oregon than here in Idaho.. that's for sure.

Here in Oregrown everyone thinks their going to get rich selling "legal" weed. A very large bubble will soon burst. Leases for industrial properties are doubling because there is no inventory of spaces. All consumed by grow ops. Legit businesses are being forced out by property owners doubling their monthly rent. Do not get me wrong. I don't blame the growers, I blame the DB's who are doubling the rent of the businesses who have been there for years. Things seem to change when you pay for everything in cash.

So between marijuana and alcohol you're suppose to pick one? Who knew?

I kinda like it.
Good for him for finding his niche.

The only hard part is finding raft guides who can pass the drug tests that they'll probably be getting on a very regular basis.

You show me a raft guide who thinks he can pass a drug test, I'll show you a liar!!!!
....or a parolee

So back in the day we provided beer for our customers. That doesn't work in today's business model.
Only job I have had where drinking was a requirement of the job.
Passengers drank, guides drank, all day every day.
No accidents leading to injury, no upset passengers (well, there was the pastor's daughter from Baton Rouge, but she didn't like the food either). If someone was getting too familiar with the drink cooler we pulled them back. Well, sometimes we pulled them back. OK, so we didn't pull them back, just made sure our beer supply was still good.
Zero tolerance for guides; one tipsy moment and they were on the beach, permanently. Well sometimes we put them on the beach. OK, so we didn't put them on the beach. It worked out.
And when we hit camp the "Whammo can" was in evidence.
We didn't make a deal about it, and it worked out.
Marketing based on "Whammo" breaks?
Genius or a model for litigation.
Time will tell.
