Don't shop this dispensary. Olymud 420 is absolutely correct!

This dispensary is a joke. The only thing it had going for it was Sarge who just quit, which means his sweet hash and medibles are going to disappear too. Red Emporer is not a licensed business. Search Washington L & I and Washington Department of Revenue. You will not find an active business license. His license expired 6/19/12 under his old business name of Northwest Herbal Care. That also probably means there is no liability insurance. So all those pissed off suppliers that James owes money to who come in pushing their way around could harm, maim, or even kill you and there is no insurance to cover you.

The water and electricity are not on in the building. There are lights in the retail area because they are running a generator. The only reason the toilet gets flushed is because there is a garbage bin filled with water scabbed from the apartment building next to the place in the bathroom. That means there isn't any hand washing being done after peepee and poopoo. Then your mmj and medibles are being handled. James is living in the building with no shower or bath which is why you see him wearing the same clothes day after day. Classic Department of Health nightmare.

James does have numerous and plentiful aliases: Saul Meshach, Sir CBD, James Baines, Meshach Enterprises, Northwest Herbal Care, www.sellitforfree.com, Watson, Mortimer, etc. Rumor has it that he has a Social Security Number on his Saul Meshach alias. His real name is James Blaine IV. He doesn't have any kind of case pending for felony. I too searched Pierce County LINX and King County cases. The only thing I found was an open Dept of Revenue case for $19,735.81 in back taxes 12-9-93224-8. Why all the drama? Generating delusions of persecution is not helping his bogus retail business.

His YouTube videos posted under the name of Saul Meshach are a joke. Obviously the ones of his wife Nozomi show what an abused woman she is. No wonder she can't be found by him. Other videos talk about snitches. Lots of snitches. You're a snitch, your friends are snitches, your family are snitches, everybody's a snitch. What snitches? What is there to snitch about? And did those customers give written permission for their videos to be posted on YouTube? I doubt it. And what about the one video (the others he didn't post), where he assaulted a person at his front door?

Beware of posting anything on www.dispensaryexchange.com. It appears that almost every single posting was done by James himself. If you start reading them, you will see what I mean. There are hundreds and hundreds of postings by him, for him, and against everybody else.

I've known James for years. He always used to be a fat guy. Now all of a sudden he's all skinny. His facebook posting timelines show he is awake posting on his page for hours and hours and hours at a time, even days at a time. Does a pot smoker do that? Does an insomniac do that? I don't think so. I have, however, seen pills that look like Percs & oxy laying around the dispensary. And there's no kitchen so he's eating fast food. How is he getting so skinny?

Sarge is a friend of mine. He is a decorated veteran. I am sitting here looking at his cell phone messages from James this morning, after Sarge simply refused to go back this morning. James sent over 30 threatening texts and pictures. Some of them are typed verbatim below. I type them here so they are now a publicly accessible record, verifiable by Sarge's family's phone server in case anything happens to Sarge or his family. James seems to be having some kind of psychotic break. That makes his dispensary unsafe to approach.

"Why did you lie to me" "So who were u working for snitch????" "I knew it the whole time" "As soon as u tried to push pills on me" "You know how u detect snitches ????" "They always get depressed when u give them good news about u" "And they act scarred for no fucking good reason" "just like u got scarred when I went to that College" (James thinks one of the local comm colleges is going to hand him $48,000; then it was $56,000. Wonder what it is now, when he can't even pay his utilities?) "The eyes never lie" "How much week and money did u steal????" "Fucking coward" "Don't ever come back here if I see u anywhere near here I'm blasting on site that's a promise I will spare u the embarrassment cause u have a family" "death before dishonor snitch" Photo of Al Pacino: "There's 3 things you should know about me. 1. My circle is small. 2. I'm loyal to the end 3. Never fuck me over" Photo of Tupac flipping off: "Did you know Tupac Shakur shot two off duty police officers who were assaulting a young man. Charges were dropped because the officers were intoxicated and in possession of stolen guns." Photo of some guy in gas mask. Photo of white guy: "Friends???? Shit I don't even trust my family" Photo of joker: "Didn't your parents teach you not to fuck with crazy people" Photo of KKK member: "My butt cheeks clench when I see a black man" Photo of evil clown: "I like you. I'll kill you last." "Come play bitch u" "That's what I say bitch" Photo of mummified skeleton with 2 girls. "Coward" "Keep a good look out for them woods at your Sunday play time bitch" "The chocalate_nsa has very good team members" Photo of evil clown: "Sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite"

Please, help shut this operation down by refusing to do business there. It is these sort of people, this sort of behavior, and this way of doing business that gives all the dispensaries in Tacoma a bad name.

Comments:
Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG4McMYId-o. Now Pierre Money Mart is a snitch to James because James yelled at one of their reps? See what I mean?
Aaaaaaaand, the snitch list continues. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItWg79e9k_A. Gay Harbor? Little white boy? James is a bigot, a racist, and a homophobe.

James Blaine's is a snitch

James the owner is a fucking snitch
Crying online about his upcoming felony trial guess what people I have been down to pierce county superior court myself no case exists on any court docket or trials schedule . He has made a deal with mark da of pierce county to snitch on his own collective members his wife nozomi Gaines has been snitching since her son got busted smoking heroine and threw a 3 year old toddler down a hallway what a pos hope you get shanked in the joint baby abuser oh yeah and James Saul his name changes like his pairs of underwear. He is a racist pos if your white you really gotta watch out for this fake wanna be he has his shop all wired up with video and audio and has threatened to snitch on 12 different members of the collective and has case files put together on his hard drive
If someone out their I'd reading this and realize you've been set up please do everyone in south puget sound a favor and blast this stupid wannabe gangster gorilla apeman pos

Bud perfection!

Nothing but the best. Great people, always fast and welcoming. This place is open alot! Holidays even when i have been. Always a good selection. I will get a $25 1/8th and then ill grab a couple grams of dutch treat, blue dream, purple arrow to name a few tasty perfected meds of the emperor. This place is family run and very clean and comfortable. The only reason ill leave the big screen and sofa is for the great selection which you can magnify or enlarge on the digital. I have been coming since they opened and the red emperor is consistantly the best.

holy smokes...

been to a few dispensaries in the region and there are some award winners here and there, here's one of the finest. Not selling ten thousand strands or gimmick products, allows them to focus on what's important, plants. Red Emp recently brought on board a Phd. Botanist and she knows her shit. Try theirs, ill put it up against any of the strains presented at the DOPE Cup challenge next year.

The facilities are secure and well staffed by people whom are passionate, friendly and willing to talk about the industry, communicating to coop members and not preaching.

Worth da visit!

What a refreshing club decor with a new med choice - The Hog. I tried a gram for my SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and it cheered me up just fine. I'm heading over for more. Hope they keep da Hog in stock. Just what these damp, dark rainy days need - a ray of cheer. These folks know how to keep clients coming back.

Great location

Easy parking and very secure club. You'll feel safe when you drop by. I've heard about the Sarah Jane. No one has this strain but these folks. It's a kush with White Widow breeding. Can't wait to try it as a Christmas gift w/my friends. A white holiday for sure.

Great Experience

I really liked this collective. They carry some of my favorite strains like Blue Angel. When you come in be sure not to miss out on the Purple Arrow either. The digital microscope is REALLY cool too!
