How Much Does A Marijuana Blunt Roller Job Pay In The Music Industry?

I have lived my entire life in Oregon, and have always loved music. That has made life tougher for me compared to other people that live in larger states that have more of a ‘music scene.’ There are not a ton of high profile music events in Oregon, which is not to say that we don’t have great music here, because we do, but we don’t have music events on the same level as a state like California. As an Oregonian I would travel to California from time to time for some huge music festivals, each of which had dozens of musical acts that I liked.

I was at a music festival in California in 2011 and I got a chance to meet the members of Cypress Hill. It is a moment that I often measure my life around, as in the pre-Cypress Hill meet up part of my life and the post-Cypress Hill meet up part of my life. The group was doing a meet and greet at the event, and I made sure to be one of the first ones in line. While I was waiting for my turn to meet the group, I couldn’t help but watch a guy whose sole purpose at the event seemed to be to roll blunts for the group members and entourage. This guy could roll blunts faster than anyone I had ever seen before, and they were all uniform in shape and size. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone as good at rolling blunts as he was.

I was left wondering if that was an actual job for the guy, or if he was just the best at it out of the crew so he did it out of necessity? He didn’t seem to actually be a part of the group’s crew, he seemed like an employee. I was never able to confirm it, but I do know now that there are actually quite a few blunt rollers in the music industry. So many that apparently Billboard was able to find enough of them to determine the average salary of a blunt roller while on tour. According to Billboard, it’s $500/week, and also includes free hotel and travel expenses.

More And More Large Marijuana Gardens Use LED Grow Lights To Reduce Carbon Footprint

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

There is more marijuana being grown right now than ever before in legal recreational and medical marijuana states. In my home state, Oregon, there are industrial gardens all over the state from Eastern Oregon to the Oregon Coast and from Portland to Ashland and everywhere in between. It’s truly mind blowing. One thing that growers and I talk about all of the time is the carbon footprint of the industry. A lot of growers in legal states grow outdoors, but many more don’t because of climate issues in their areas.

All of those indoor gardens use a lot of energy. I heard a figure awhile back from an energy industry expert that estimated that one percent of all energy in the United States is used by indoor marijuana gardens. And that claim was made before there were any recreational marijuana states in America, and I’d imagine that proportion of energy consumption has grown and will continue to do so as the industry and right to home cultivation spreads. The biggest users of electricity in any indoor garden are the lights, and to a lesser extend cooling equipment. I once visited an industrial garden that had 110 1,000 watt lights in use, and as many fans as could fit into the warehouse alone with some beefy AC units. When I asked what his electricity bill was, the owner of the garden just laughed and said ‘you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, it’s that high.’

Indoor gardens are great, and in fact I’m thinking about starting my own now that all Oregon residents can grow up to four plants for recreational use. But I want to do it in a sustainable way. Plus I like saving money, so anythings I can do that are cheap and better for the environment I try to do because it’s a no brainer. That’s how I feel about LED lights. LED lights of course have their plus and minuses compared to other lighting setups, but the lower energy usage and lower energy bill that come along with using them is undeniable. The lights use less power, and put off less heat, which means you don’t have to run as many fans and AC units.
