Thatís a First
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:28:43 PM »
Had a customer contact me about milling up an oak tree that tipped over in his yard. After I gave him a rough estimate on how long it would take to cut it into slabs. He asked if Iíd be interested in trading for some ďgreat potĒ. Itís legal in Oregon, so I donít know why I was so surprised, I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I think Iíll wait until he has some cash available lol

Bound to happen....well it has.
The states where that legalized it is now driving the price down. Everybody can get it anywhere.

It has no value you at all at my place.  :)

I can see this happening more and more as time goes on, some folks consider it as good as gold.

Poston, from what I understand it has gone way up here since it was legalized and the businesses that deal in it have been established. Heck just the taxes is more than the stuff is worth.  7 bucks tax on ONE joint from what I understand.

Only except payment for saw milling in: 1. Green cash 2. Cashiers check 3. Highly Valuable Black Walnut Tree.   :laugh:

Fortunately when he made the offer, it was through text message. Even at that it took me a while to figure out how to respond. Pretty much the only good it would serve around my place would be goat feed, I guess theyíd eat it?

Don't feed it to your goat. It is about like LOCO weeds. Causes them to be more nuts than normal.

For sure DO NOT feed it to the FF goat. Please!

The jokes with the goat are funny - but in all seriousness this will prove to be a very poor decision on the part of those states.

I guess I am an exception.  First, I'm a teetotaler, I don't smoke or drink.  That said, I'd rather have a pot head for a neighbor than a drunk.  Pot doesn't matter too much to me, the other stuff, I hate.  I think the best thing for America is to legalize and tax it like Tobacco (stupid drug) & Alcohol- kills so so many people. 

That said, if they offered it to me Id have laughed and told them to keep walking.

Like anything in life there are different experiences, but from a previous career I can show you plenty of grave stones and lives destroyed by the stuff.  Not all of them were the user either.

That stuff was never for me and I havenít had a drop to drink since 2004. On one hand, I agree with making it legal for the tax purposes. But, itís to hard to detect and Iím afraid there are way to many people on the road while under the influence especially in the states that have made it legal.

Once upon a time I would have thought about it and probably would have done it just to turn it and make a buck, providing the numbers were good enough. I'd have to get someone else to test it for me though. The last time I took hit off a joint was 9-10 years ago and DADGUMMIT, it sure wasn't the same crap we smoked when I was in school.

At this point in my life, even if it were legal, I'd have to tell them no. I'm not against it if used responsibly, but I won't be a part in it either. For me it's a "to each their own" kind of situation, but I'll pass.

In June of last year I got a call from a guy that lives about 7 or 8 miles from me called me and wanted me to mill a big pine. So my wife and grandson went with me to to have a look. First thing I saw when I drove into the yard was a huge greenhouse. Next to it was a 42" Jeffery pine shading it. He wanted me to cut it down and make lumber out of it. Man I wanted a chance to mill that tree. The pay was a life time supply of weed. I told him I already had a lifetime supply. He wanted to know if I grew my own. I held out my empty hands and said, "This is my lifetime supply." He just couldn't understand having no need for pot.

I still want to slice that big tree, it's well over 100' tall, a good 50' to the first limb.
