Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the hemp fields of Sonoma County are pro­tected by the spirit of Smok­i­tall Moon­al­ice. As a child, Smok­i­tall was noth­ing spe­cial, but he was incred­i­bly impa­tient. He grew up in a ther­monu­clear fam­ily, with five gen­er­a­tions under one roof. All day long, every day, he nagged his fam­ily with a sin­gle ques­tion: are we there yet?Smokitall was tone deaf, so he had no choice but to go into agri­cul­ture. There his impa­tience pro­duced an inno­va­tion: Beau­jo­lais Hemp. Smok­i­tall had an insight: if you har­vest hemp when it’s six inches tall, you can smoke the stems. The tribe tried to tell him he was crazy, but Smok­i­tall per­sisted in his dream. He inhaled prodi­gious quan­ti­ties of Beau­jo­lais Hemp, result­ing in black lung and early death. His spirit has lived in the fields ever since.

Accord­ing to a dif­fer­ent part of Moon­al­ice leg­end, the short­est dis­tance between two points doesn’t mat­ter. What mat­ters is how sharp the points are.
