According to Moonalice legend, we are standing today at Roaring Camp, the heart of an ancient Redwood Hemp Forest. Redwood Hemp was exactly what it sounds like, a hemp plant that grew hundreds of feet tall over hundreds of years, with buds the size of a Dodge minivan. The buds were so fragrant that you didn’t need to smoke them. One whiff and you were set for an afternoon of entertainment. If you lived near here, the buzz was perpetual, which explains so much. Unfortunately, the white man came, took one look at the giant plants and thought, “wow, we can make a shitload of toilet paper out of these things.” Then they cut them all down.
