A company which makes cannabis products has bought an entire town in California and plans to turn it into a "destination" for marijuana.

American Green has agreed a deal to buy the town of Nipton for $5m (£3.8m).

The company will own 120 acres of land, which includes a school building, a hotel, mineral baths and a general store.

They also want to power the town with renewable energy.


This is fine by me - I want to move there and get a job as a Mary Jane tester.

But it makes the idea of Brownies (pre-Girl Scouts) a bit ambiguous ;-)

That's a really great business idea. I bet it will be enormously profitable for the local economy.
We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.

I'm sure--considering the local economy consists of a pop. of 20.:))  And right now it is hot as fucking blue blazes there--might as well be Death Valley (which is close).
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Going green in more ways that one, I see.  Good for them.  And more importantly, good for the surrounding community.

What surrounding community??  Look this up on the map--I think isolated would be an apt word to use for it.

Yeah--don't think this will be isolated for much longer. :)

Kim Basinger bought a town.  I guess if you have more money than you know what to do with, why not buy a town?

The town is named after Harrison Braselton, a poor dirt farmer who married Susan Hosch, the daughter of a rich plantation owner. Braselton built a home on 786 acres (318 ha) of land he purchased north of the Hosch Plantation. The land he purchased was later called Braselton.[6]

In 1989 actress and Georgia native Kim Basinger and other investors bought 1,751 acres (709 ha) of the town's 2,000 privately owned acres for $20 million from Braselton Brothers Inc, intending to turn it into a tourist destination.[7] Five years later, on the eve of personal bankruptcy, she and her partners sold the town at a large loss.

An entire town based on complete freedom for Marijuana usage and growing, might seem like a great idea, until you realize how fucking awful it would smell to live there.
