We love our shoppers. From mom-and-pop retailers to multinational firms, most of them run stable operations and behave themselves fairly effectively. However when you may have lots of of shoppers and hundreds of transactions over a few years within the hashish business, you see some loopy issues. This checklist 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 desirous to sue OLCC for not licensing her, though she had not utilized. The superb 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. Effectively, perhaps not Mom Theresa! However ¯_(ツ)_/¯”. (He misplaced.) The shifty bros who wished huge 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 shopper, a well-known actress, to speculate 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 cost and simply… disappeared. The shopper we sincerely disillusioned by not having a ruler out there within the workplace. That $2 million purchaser, who reappeared a yr later to “get the property again” solely to promptly disappear once more (eternally?). Almost each CBD dealer I’ve come throughout, and particularly those who later popped up as PPE brokers in our legislation agency’s China observe, within the early days of COVID. The pleasant individuals who offered “shares” of their nonprofit. The terrible one who took LLC funding cash from our shoppers, purchased land in his personal title, drove the hashish right 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 shopper allegedly trespassed someplace, after which by no means served the lawsuit. The attorneys who advised individuals to not file tax returns for fiveth Modification causes. The shopper who was disemboweled by a loopy particular person squatting on his landlord’s property (this was horrible; he survived). The shopper 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 title after prevailing of their lawsuit. The shopper who received a hefty six-figure settlement, however wished to go away it right here indefinitely and swing by from time to time for strolling round cash (apparently eternally). The man who requested an OLCC inspector what he might do, proper now, “to make this little drawback go away.” And final however not least, the shoppers who performed this song on large audio system when an OLCC investigator got here to their property. We misplaced observe of them, in some way.
