Off the Charts CEO Norman Yousif brags about not paying mom and pops; thinks it’s “so cool”

Norman Yousif, CEO of Off the Charts, OTC Valley in Sherman Oaks has been featured in a leaked video which shows him bragging about not paying mom and pop licensees in the cannabis space. Norman Yousif is also one of the owners behind the new private cannabis lounge Private Reserve which is opening beside Off the Charts. In response to this blatant flaunting that they’ve successfully helped kill mom and pops in the cannabis industry by not paying invoices, the cannabis industry is calling for a boycott of Off the Charts Valley in Sherman Oaks, CA. The video of Norman Yousif talking shit about “fucking mom and pops” first appeared on Blacklistxyz, but was taken off without full explanation as Big Reds Farm noted. The video still exists and is very much making its rounds right now for obvious reasons. People are upset that of this blatant admittance of not paying invoices even if he pays some of them now – because Yousif isn’t the only morally unscrupulous CEO that is doing this. Screwing over smaller licensees in favor of multi state operators (MSOs) is part of a well worn page from the playbook. Here’s a copy of the video hosted on Youtube by ClearlyReviews, who I think won’t take it down due to baseless threats.

Off the Charts CEO has off the charts disrespect for mom and pops in the cannabis industry

The video is of an Off the Charts meeting and starts with Norman Yousif saying at the meeting:
“Do you know what’s so cool? A lot of vendors, within years, like Vespa, have been over for five years. Do you know how much money we’ve saved by not paying the vendors because they’ve been out of business or they never collected or they never lasted? Now I‘m not talking about CBX, I’m not talking about Nabis. I ain’t talking about the 30 stable brands that are here to play. I’m talking about those fucking mom and pops that come and go. Probably saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. I mean: You don’t have to pay. You don’t have to pay.”

Boycott Norman Yousif and Off the Charts Valley

You know what’s so cool? When the truth comes out, people respond. The cannabis industry needs to clean house. Scumbags don’t deserve to be in this space. Macho Midz aka Randy Dabbage and Big Reds Farm are leading a charge to Boycott Off the Charts. You might notice changed profile pictures, you’ll definitely notice more posts about this as time goes on.
