We love our shoppers. From mom-and-pop outlets to multinational firms, most of them run stable operations and behave themselves fairly effectively. However when you’ve gotten a whole bunch 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. That is only for enjoyable.
There was the man who walked off with an entire bunch of firm crops, on digital camera. Additionally the courageous girl who opened an unlicensed marijuana retailer on a busy avenue (and was politely shut down by the Portland police). The identical girl for eager to sue OLCC for not licensing her, though she had not utilized. The wonderful 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, “everybody does it. Nicely, perhaps not Mom Theresa! However you recognize ¯_(ツ)_/¯”. (He misplaced.) The shifty bros who needed massive 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 take a position 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 dissatisfied 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 (endlessly?). Practically 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 offered “shares” of their nonprofit. The terrible one that took LLC funding cash from our shoppers, purchased land in his personal identify, 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 advised folks to not file tax returns for fiveth Modification 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 medication. The very considerate shoppers who fired us however promised additionally to endow a college hemp analysis middle in Harris Bricken’s identify 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 every now and then for strolling round cash (apparently endlessly). The man who requested an OLCC inspector what he may do, proper now, “to make this little downside go away.” And final however not least, the shoppers who performed this song on big audio system when an OLCC investigator got here to their property. We misplaced monitor of them, someway.
