loleta cheese factory too big to fail
Politicians including Rex Bohn and Jared Huffman have declared Loleta Cheese Factory "Too Big to Fail."

On average Humboldt residents consume 600% more laxatives than other California counties. While medical studies suggest Humboldt's high rate of opioid use (70-million prescriptions) contributes to local constipation, Rex Bohn is not convinced passionately explaining, "I've been constipated for 57 years. I eat cheese every meal and for my snack breaks. I have never used heroin and am allergic to poppy seeds. Cheese drives the Humboldt economy not drugs."
