As a mortgage banker for Washington Mutual, Blount lost big when the bank failed in 2008. Unable to find work, he began hiking around the forests of the Cascade region, where he met and befriended two guys named Skunk and Nervous Charlie. With his friends' knowledge of the pot culture, and his own business sensibilities, Blount and company became self-proclaimed Marijuan-trepreneurs. With the legalization of the stuff in 2012, the three opened thier shop "Yes, We Cannabis!" to rave, if sleepy and a little hungry, reviews.
