We love our purchasers. From mom-and-pop outlets to multinational firms, most of them run strong operations and behave themselves fairly nicely. However when you’ve lots of of purchasers and 1000’s 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. That is only for enjoyable.
There was the man who walked off with a complete bunch of firm crops, on digital camera. Additionally the courageous girl who opened an unlicensed marijuana retailer on a busy road (and was politely shut down by the Portland police). The identical girl for desirous to sue OLCC for not licensing her, though she had not utilized. The wonderful purchasers 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, “everybody does it. Effectively, possibly not Mom Theresa! However you understand ¯_(ツ)_/¯”. (He misplaced.) The shifty bros who needed large bucks to license a Wu-Tang member’s IP, though that they had no demonstrable connection to that member. The corrupt CPA who solid signatures of his consumer, a well-known actress, to speculate her cash in a hashish enterprise. The geniuses who constructed these all-time terrible business structures. 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 disenchanted by not having a ruler accessible within the workplace. That $2 million purchaser, who reappeared a yr later to “get the property again” solely to promptly disappear once more (ceaselessly?). Practically each CBD dealer I’ve come throughout, and particularly those who later popped up as PPE brokers in our regulation agency’s China follow, within the early days of COVID. The pleasant individuals who bought “shares” of their nonprofit. The terrible one that took LLC funding cash from our purchasers, purchased land in his personal title, drove the hashish right down to Nevada and chased our purchasers 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 informed folks to not file tax returns for fiveth Modification causes. The consumer who was disemboweled by a loopy individual 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 medication. The very considerate purchasers who fired us however promised additionally to endow a college hemp analysis heart in Harris Bricken’s title after prevailing of their lawsuit. The consumer who gained a hefty six-figure settlement, however needed to depart it right here indefinitely and swing by from time to time for strolling round cash (apparently ceaselessly). The man who requested an OLCC inspector what he may do, proper now, “to make this little drawback go away.” And final however not least, the purchasers who performed this song on big audio system when an OLCC investigator got here to their property. We misplaced monitor of them, by some means.
