His realtor -- a conservative pillar of the local church -- reluctantly told Dave the only potential buyer was someone who would turn the building into an indoor marijuana farm.
Dave hopes his realtor can seal such a deal, particularly since Californians voted in 2016 to legalize "full recreational use" of marijuana. The realtor "may be anti-drug, but he's pro-money," said Dave.
