How come the carpenters had to take a jab at the cannabis growers? Carpenters may be less annoying than drug farmers, but drug money provides many jobs for local carpenters and tradespeople (not to mention the giant pickup truck mechanics, who are indebted to both groups). And the high-tech urban white-collar workers are ultimately responsible for buying the drugs that prop up this economy. We're all connected. Anyway, what we really need are high school students who build robots that grow cannabis, build houses, and automatically drive huge pickup trucks.
