Child's Garden of GrassEverybody told me I was wasting my time with that stupid English BA, but did I listen? From Green thumb? Washington state looks for marijuana consultant on Politico:

[Marijuana s]ales are due to begin in Washington state in December.

Washington’s Liquor Control Board has a long and “very good” history with licensing and regulation, spokesman Mikhail Carpenter said.

“But there are some technical aspects with marijuana we could use a consultant to help us with,” Carpenter said.

The board has advertised for consulting services in four categories. The first is “product and industry knowledge” and requires “at least three years of consulting experience relating to the knowledge of the cannabis industry, including but not limited to product growth, harvesting, packaging, product infusion and product safety.”

Other categories cover quality testing, including how to test for levels of THC, the compound that gets marijuana users high; statistical analysis of how much marijuana the state’s licensed growers should produce; and the development of regulations, a category that requires a “strong understanding of state, local or federal government processes,” with a law degree preferred.

I wonder if the WA LCB would accept that one time I was dumpster diving and found a 30-year-old instructional manual on growing your own with a leaf pressed inside as sufficient experience to waive that law-degree thing? Also, like, eight years ago I tried buying a grow-light-and-shelf setup because I wanted indoor tomatoes and the helpful dudes down at Ace Hardware or wherever wouldn’t believe me? Oh, how we laughed.

And by “we” I mean “they”.

And I never got the damn shelves.
