legalize_pot_belly_pig_2013From my story in Sunday’s Asheville Citizen-Times about Legalize Pot Belly Pigs Co. in Woodfin:

Joey’s the pig, and Tim Robinson is the guy who imagined that one day he might have a future in products he made from hemp. With Joey as inspiration, Robinson is realizing his entrepreneurial vision. Working out of a rented house in Woodfin, Robinson, his girlfriend and another friend design, sew and sell everything from headbands and guitar straps to drum bags and T-shirts made from hemp and organic fabric. The name of Robinson’s company is Legalize Pot Belly Pigs Co., and an image of bushy-headed Joey looks out from the center of the company’s circular logo. …

Robinson is just now getting organized to begin pushing his brand. Last week, he got a break when the company that supplies him with his hemp fabric, Glenwood Springs, Colo.,-based EnviroTextiles, invited him to send some in some of his products to be part of the “Hempalicious” fashion show at the 2013 Winter X Games. The show was Thursday, and Robinson said he’s hoping the exposure will help boost his burgeoning business.
