I knew a guitarist once who would organise his pedals in whatever order he found them in after forgetting where he'd left them the night before due to his ardent belief in the merits of inhaling the fumes resulting from igniting his home-grown horticulture.
I'm not even joking. The guy had to practise every day just to remember stuff he'd been playing daily for a year or more. Some days he was (genuinely) fantastic, others... well, we drank to forget.
I'm all for freedom of choice on the herbivoral front, to the point where I believe the current prohibition of same to be very wrong, counterproductive and misguided.
That said, legal or not, please don't mix it with business!

No order prescriptions from me but a note on my own use of OD and compression. I pluck the strings with my fingers mostly and fairly lightly. My compression is post OD this allows me to use the overdrive as a expressive element by digging in without significantly changing the output level. A bit like a wide open tube amp.
