Sure it was truly illegal to grow as well as sell marijuana, but it had also previously been illegal to make as well as sell liquor, so the laws were not given much regard
The story goes that my great gran moved out here into the valley during prohibition. Gran just packed up the whole family as well as moved hundreds of miles away to start over. She selected this location because of the rough terrain as well as heavy tree cover made it a perfect spot to make moonshine; Grant Gran was a bootlegger of the highest order, as well as made quite a name for herself until prohibition was struck down. Most of the family left the valley after that, but our great gran (and later, our grandmother) stuck around to tend the land, as well as converted the moonshine location into a marijuana grow, and don’t get me wrong, they still brewed liquor, but they started growing as well as selling cannabis to pay the bills. Sure it was truly illegal to grow as well as sell marijuana, but it had also previously been illegal to make as well as sell liquor, so the laws were not given much regard. I was born as well as raised on this marijuana crop, so it is truly vindicating for me as well as our whole family to see cannabis legalization become the rule of the land, and just like alcohol, marijuana never should have been removed in the first locale, as well as our family never should have had to be doing it on the sly. Both of us never did anything wrong, just grew this great plant, as well as now humanity is catching up as well as there is a cannabis dispensary in every town. Life won’t change for us, only now both of us won’t sell to weed dealers, both of us will supply cannabis dispensaries instead… as well as you better guess both of us will charge them a whole lot more!
