The Humboldt Chronicles - How Much Money?

KHUM, Radio Without the Rules / Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012 @ 2:38 p.m.

Whether you know it or not, everyone on the north coast is affected by marijuana.

Weed has played a major role in Humboldt's culture, politics, social structure and economy, and it's emerging from the subculture faster than ever before.  

We're excited to launch a long-term series called "The Humboldt Chronicles: Dispatches from Marijuana Country."

Hosted by SoHum journalist Kym Kemp the first installment aired on Sat, Feb 4th & Mon. the 6th . . . you can download with iTunes, or download below. 


Producers Kym Kemp, Chuck Rogers, and Mike Dronkers hosted a post-show call-in forum. 


The first episode explores the macroeconomics of marijuana in Humboldt County. As one business owner told us, we're all in the marijuana business whether we like it or not.

  • How much money are we talking about here? Thousands? Billions? 
  • How does that money fan out into the community? 
  • What determines the wholesale value of marijuana?
