The British Columbians are masters at running “pirate economies”. Centuries before the current BC Bud enterprise was launched, the fur trade was a huge part of the BC economy when the Europeans arrived in the home of the First Nations with lots of arrogant ambition and a buffet of epidemics. That was followed by a few slightly sleazy gold rushes and then some pretty dedicated exploitation of the Japanese, Chinese and other Asians. During prohibition in the U.S., B.C. became the liquor hub for the west coast of the U.S. We’ve been keeping you guys stoned and drunk for decades.
You’ re welcome.
