On the cusp of legalization:
An anonymous female marijuana grower shares a rare behind-the-scenes view into her life. At the very end of her 9-month-long season, we talk about weed, what it’s like to live in the woods, shrouded in secrecy, in the heart of the emerald triangle: Humboldt county. Humboldt is world famous for growing the most incredible marijuana available on the planet. Listen in to the typical day of the illegal grower, what the culture and people are like that thrive in the pot scene, the necessary secrecy required, the isolation, and the lifestyle that goes along with this multi-billion dollar underground industry.
So Alter Ego… what is it? Well it’s not about ego or ego trip. It’s really about exploring the different personalities and characteristics of who we are, internally. Not just in our interpersonal communications with others, but our intRA-personal communication with the individual persons that really add up to be us, who we are! When we are able to explore for them and express them we create such a rich life of greater happiness, greater contributions to ourself, to our families, to others, to our organizations, to our causes, and missions.
Next week on the Alter Ego Podcast…
…We continue into the heart of the illegal marijuana farms of Humboldt County and talk with Trimmers. Trimmers come from all over the world to this small town in Northern California to make some quick cash by processing the marijuana after it’s been harvested, and manicuring it from the raw plant into the smokeable bud. Who are they, how did they get connected with this secretive industry, and what are their lives like? Make sure to listen in to next week’s Episode: “Trimmigrants: The Secret Life of Marijuana (part 2)” Hear from the most tight lipped of people during this historic transition as we move away from prohibition into wary trust of an uncertain future.
