Watching Murder Mountain. A Docu-Series About Marijuana In Humboldt County

14 days ago

I am sitting here watching Marijuana Mountain on Netflix. I am only on episode 2. But it seems to be filled full of Cannabis History.

Just gonna write as I watch. This may seem like a crazy post but I am gonna try to put into words what I am watching without spoiling.

Regulation AND TAXES in episode 2 is killing the Original Grower. Families who have been growing for generations are struggling to make it because of taxes.

Episode 3


Humboldt County can be dangerous is the main start. Deeper investigations into the missing people. The Original Growers are talking about who you get into business with...

Yes, it may have been a black market but there are still good and bad people. It's the same way in legitimate business too. There are businesses that will ask you to cross the line. I would say murder is crossing the line in a black market too! Even in an outlaw town.

At 25 minute left mark Gulp

Mind your own business as they say.

The story line to me seems to be... watch who you get into business with. A lady mentioned earlier that people should GET SOME DAMN REFERENCES! This doesn't just count for employees! Get references on a boss too~!

Oh yeah...there is the story line of the grower going legit

He's talking genetics:-) And taking bong hits after getting his license renewed in the parking lot lol.

So far I am liking this documentary show.

It's full of history, murder, and impact of marijuana regulation. I don't want to spoil it but would love to read your thoughts on the show. It makes me want to look into the history more.

There is always a slanted view on shows...same with reporting...even when one tries to be impartial.

That's crazy, We were just going through Netflix to find something to watch and we saw this show and I said I will watch that later. Then I log on to smoke.io and here you are talking about the same show, spooky. Bong on bro. :-)

Fate has intervened. Must obey.

I’ve been looking forward to find the time for that one. Reviews have been solid and seems to fit in Netflix’ track record style too.

I saw the first chapter two nights ago. The truth is that it is very interesting and show situations that I did not imagine. It is seen that it is quite dangerous to get lost in those mountains.

·

I think the danger always is reported before the good. I live in the Mountains myself and the moral compass may be different than what most are use to but most are def trying to watch out for their fellow person.

This was an amazing show, Quite a bit i had no clue went down in cali. I binge watched in all in one night haha.

·

It was a good show. The murder story line is intriguing but the tax enforcement and regulation fees were jaw dropping.

·
·

Yeah, It is a huge corporate joke for sure. I thought Canada was bad but cali was just as bad on small growers

Mountain living is far more different then on the low land. I used to here even crazier stuff about those mountains in Kentucky. I do have to say from what I learned in the doc, is it is a shame how bad people ruin it for all the good people. Also im so glad that I grow my own now.

·

I agree with you man about mountain living vs low land. It seems like the majority of the ppl are pretty peaceful but all it takes is one bad apple.

I gotta check this out! Good one!

·

It is mind blowing. Lots of sub plots. It is also very educational when it comes to the impact of legalization on the legal white and black side of cannabis.

Got about 10mins into the first episode & stopped watching because it was a bit grim, might return to it when I'm bored 🤷‍♂️

·

Right now the El Chapo trial distracts me from actually watching this.

So many agencies and officials involved but points not touched upon by prosecution. Or sidebar talks which end up sealed themselves.

I may actually rewatch Narcos just because of the trial.

·
·

Narcos Mexico is worth a watch, better than the original Narcos IMO & it has El Chapo as a background character.

·
·
·

While it has a romantized touch, the Accountant’s Story by his brother is a good read. It is said the first season was based upon in. It also gives more insight in their struggles to deal with the huge amounts of cash and everything that otherwise seems so mythical.

Because of Murder Mountain I had almost written a review of it if I Didn’t already have two posts (witness post included) this week.

Thanks for the movie rec. Very interesting. Crypto accounting and Cannabis accounting are in huge demand.

·

·

Be careful with those accountants. El Chapo currently isn’t happy about his accountant at all.

·

Lol. I have a Bachelors in accounting and shit like the El Chapo stuff makes me want to walk the straight and narrow in the field.

·

·

The story of the Mexico narcos is such an interesting one, I agree.

·
·
·
·

The Mexican Narco scene is not dumb. Prime cannabis growing climate and massive lands= super duper profit but damn it sucks their association contributed to Humbolt's neg personal.

·

The first episode lays a lot of backstory but overall the series hits on many topics. I agree that some parts can be grim.
