In California... I would like to get into the cannabis industry as a grower, cultivator, whatever the correct term is. Starting small (a completely new setup in a 4x8 Gorilla), and expanding over time until I have a small / medium size commercial operation. Although I'd love to make millions (who wouldn't!) my short / medium term goal is to quit my full time job which makes 50K a year, and grow full time, replacing that income. I've been reading and researching daily, but have some California specific questions I hope you all can answer for me. If anyone who has been in a similar situation wants to lay out the general process and steps toward my goals, much love. I want everything as above board and legal as is possible in what seems to still be a somewhat gray market. I have my medical card. The question(s) that is (are) on my mind today is this: Let's assume that I've got my tent setup and operating very well (I don't). I've managed to obtain some good genetics and had an awesome grow(I haven't). Now I'm sitting on a couple pounds of flower (How do I legally hold that much?). How do I legally sale (can you even call it selling?) to a medical dispensary or delivery service? Do I just walk in with a sample to various places until someone bites? Do I have to join them somehow, or is there a permit I need? Please, before anyone responds with a smart ass "Google it" response, believe me, I have. Perhaps I'm not looking for the right things, but I haven't been able to find a simple or concise explanation of these questions. Plus, I have limited time in a day, and have been spending most of my free time just figuring out what I need to get off the ground as far as growing goes. I'll be adding / asking more questions as they arrive, so sub if you are helpful and experienced, or are looking to similar answers! _________________________________________________________ Explain - merely answering a question is not enough. Like I'm 5 - means friendly, simplified and layman-accessible explanations - not responses aimed at a literal five-year-old.
