Comments on: Counterparties http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/30/counterparties-413/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: fromks http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/30/counterparties-413/comment-page-1/#comment-30363 Wed, 31 Aug 2011 19:44:30 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=9605#comment-30363 I highly doubt eastern CO and western KS are similar to Humboldt-like weather. I would assume the growing areas in CO are far from the barren border region. And the product would be destined for Boulder, Lawrence, etc. not Garden City.

CO growing is basically legal, that area has Humboldt like weather as far as growing is concerned, that area is a hub for exporters as well. Hippy types congregate there and grow tons of pot (because of the weather conditions, mostly, camping doesnt hurt) with relatively low effort and great results. Because of the quantity produced around here massive amounts are exported from the area, export prices are about 200 bucks /ounce of high grade, given you know these people, or people in humboldt, or really any green part of this map is where virtually all high grade pot that isn’t grown indoors comes from. Which makes me make a point, notice how no good weed comes from mexico based on the price texans pay for high grade?

In those areas most people have only seen or purchased what is referred to as mexican ditch weed aka schwag. So when they report buying an oz. for $80 and grading it as high-quality, what they really mean is that it is high-quality schwag. Even the best schwag is still solidly in the low-quality category overall.

The Keystone XL pipeline isn’t so much a new pipeline from northern Alberta to American refineries as it is an expansion.

The author of the article is a real jack-ass assuming that all Canada’s oil belongs somehow to America; China is pushing really hard to get a pipeline built to the Westcoast so that they can buy at a premium our oil. Money talks and bullshit walks

Also, I’m not sure I understand this phrase “Muddy Waters, which always sounded like an old time bluesman to me.”

Muddy Waters is of course arguably the most famous bluesman of all time, so….
