We love our shoppers. From mother-and-pop outlets to multinational companies, most of them run strong operations and behave themselves fairly properly. But when you’ve gotten a whole lot of shoppers and hundreds of transactions over a few years within the hashish trade, you see some loopy issues. This record covers loopy issues that come to thoughts in Oregon. This is only for enjoyable.
There was the man who walked off with an entire bunch of firm vegetation, on digicam. Also the courageous lady who opened an unlicensed marijuana retailer on a busy avenue (and was politely shut down by the Portland police). The identical lady for desirous to sue OLCC for not licensing her, though she had not utilized. The superb shoppers who didn’t know who owned the LLC they each organized and managed. The opponent who defined away a tax fraud to an arbitrator, saying, “everyone does it. Well, maybe not Mother Theresa! But you know ¯_(ツ)_/¯”. (He misplaced.) The shifty bros who wished massive bucks to license a Wu-Tang member’s IP, though that they had no demonstrable connection to that member. The corrupt CPA who cast signatures of his consumer, a well-known actress, to speculate her cash in a hashish enterprise. The geniuses who constructed these all-time horrible enterprise buildings. The gentleman who closed on a $2 million piece of actual property, made one month-to-month fee and simply… disappeared. The consumer we sincerely dissatisfied by not having a ruler out there within the workplace. That $2 million purchaser, who reappeared a 12 months later to “get the property back” solely to promptly disappear once more (eternally?). Nearly each CBD dealer I’ve come throughout, and particularly those who later popped up as PPE brokers in our regulation agency’s China observe, within the early days of COVID. The pleasant individuals who bought “shares” of their nonprofit. The terrible one who took LLC funding cash from our shoppers, purchased land in his personal title, drove the hashish all the way down to Nevada and chased our shoppers off the property with a gun. The lawyer who sued us for “conspiracy” as a result of our consumer allegedly trespassed someplace, after which by no means served the lawsuit. The attorneys who instructed folks to not file tax returns for fiveth Amendment causes. The consumer who was disemboweled by a loopy particular person squatting on his landlord’s property (this was horrible; he survived). The consumer who reluctantly evicted his tenant, after the FBI arrested that tenant driving throughout the nation with many sorts of medicine. The very considerate shoppers who fired us however promised additionally to endow a college hemp analysis middle in Harris Bricken’s title after prevailing of their lawsuit. The consumer who received a hefty six-determine settlement, however wished to depart it right here indefinitely and swing by on occasion for strolling round cash (apparently eternally). The man who requested an OLCC inspector what he may do, proper now, “to make this little problem go away.” And final however not least, the shoppers who performed this song on large audio system when an OLCC investigator got here to their property. We misplaced observe of them, someway.
