grow and sell weed - what class?

Gonna keep this shot and simple as I only have interwebs access from my cellie. What if someone grows and also buys and resells marijuana (black market) for a profit? What if this person does not own his on land but works for an investor and property owner who keep a portion of the profits? What if this person occasionally hires friends (usually trying to help friends who are out of work at the time) and tries to split the profits. But the profits all actually come in at the end of the season during harvest season so its all guesswork. This person feels like he's helping people out and everyone leaves happy as the job usually pays more than they usually make. Dunno, sometimes feel like I'm on the fence. Def leaves no room for any attempt at organizing. Works for now.

'So I’m a baddie then?'

I reckon we’re all in the capitalist sewer. Some people want to get out, some are apathetic, or lethargic and some think it’s the seaside and go for a swim. So you decide.

What a daft question. I suppose if you are growing something without owning land you're not far off from being a tenant farmer; and like tenant farmers, there's usually a whole spectrum of people you may need to hire - though you seem to be doing as best you can on a profit share basis. On the other hand, sometimes you are buying and selling on for profit, as well as suggesting you don't always share the profits of what is grown.. Have you asked Ben and Jerries to get their take on trying to square capitalism with socialism?

Completely idiotic thread, the end. And if you had any sense you would go back and edit out initial post

I wouldn't worry bro(see what I did there?!!!), if you are a capitalist I'm sure your the type that many so called anarchists are very pleased to have around. Now delete your account a bit lively and go sell some proper drugs!
