How do you move mountains of unwanted weed?

quote [ Oregon farmers have grown three times what their customers can smoke in a year, causing bud prices to plummet and panic to set in ]

If only there was something I could take to stop panicking

You can freeze it. I've done so successfully. It keeps very nicely. So they just need to put it into freezers and not plant next year, just selling what they have. Meanwhile plant beans to rejuvenate the soil.

If you make concentrates from it for folks who prefer to dab, would that store longer and better? Honestly im just trying to think of the traditional farmers solution. Convert to something that lasts longer. So, whiskey for certain crops, concentrates for marijuana.

woops, looks im late to the party on that suggesttion. So heres an article on weed oil in general

Weed will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no weed.

Sure, if you want nothing to get done ever again.

Sure, if you want everyone to be in a great mood from now on.

We can't have that, our economy would collapse!

Since it's still illegal at the federal level, growers can't sell it to anyone in other states, even if it's legal in the other state.

Maybe they could turn it into wax or oil. I assume that has a longer shelf life than flowers.

This sucks for me. I just started working as a graphic designer for a weed shop in Eugene, Oregon. It's a very difficult marketplace, and looks to only be getting harder.

If you can be a graphic designer for a weed shop, you can be a graphic designer for any kind of business.

Well, duh. I've been a graphic designer since I graduated, in 2007. I've worked for a ton of random clients, from dentist's offices to lotion makers. The weed shop is just my most recent client. It's nice because it's reliable hours, I'm actually working part time in their shop, not freelance. So yeah, I'm always looking for more clients, but one, that's exhausting, and two, there just plain aren't very many in my area.
