    yeah, like coca cola gets to import 100 tons of dried coca leaves into the U.S. so they can claim 25$billion yearly profits, unfairly the DEA will not allow you to compete with them either.o_O

    this, I find conspicuously stated/offered to current cg's.

    "A current licensed caregiver — there are 42,359 in the state serving 264,932 patients — can use his or her inventory of up to 72 plants as proof of assets that are required in order to get a license. A marijuana plant can yield anywhere from 3 ounces to a pound depending on the method of growing, and the retail price is roughly $200 to $300 per ounce. So a person with 72 plants that produce 8 ounces each could report assets of $144,000." (really, and why not the needed $150,000 ?)

    as an accepted #500 grower now can i sell my supply of assets all at once before I terminate my patients?
    Who is interested in buying my assets and how will I locate them/ will they locate me and how much will they pay me and how often?
    I know how many plants I can grow now but how much dried and processed marijuana can I house?

    I had heard a few weeks ago that they were going to allow people to claim product towards the liquid assets portion of the requirements, did not know it would include plants. Sounds fishy to me..if a caregiver were to claim they had product worth any significant amount..just seems like someone would come knocking and not in a friendly manner.

    Its all fucked. I do not understand what have any secured funds or a $6000 appkication fee has to do with providing safe medicine. By these standard dirtyeyeball has a better chance of giving your loved ones herb than an organic grower with a brain.

    how much they gonna pay per ounce to the grower?
    why would anyone send them non refundable money before they even know what their profit margin will be?

    Somebody who sometimes comes on here and brags about using avid, forbid and bayer home defense on his plants. He might be the single dumbest person I have seen post here.

    I would assume itll follow or closely resemble colorados wholesale prices after a year or two since the regulatory structures are similiar i think anyway. Either way..pretty sure margins will be shit once the larger producers enter. By large i mean the folks planning 50k sq ft ops on up to multiple 100k sq foot ops. Companys similiar to aphria, which is already entered the nevada market and is trying to enter other markets as well. Would only make sence to enter michigans market since we are in thier backyard pretty much. If federal status changes thats almost a quarantee, they already have a candian export license for thier products coming from that MASSIVE 800k sq ft facility.

    You gotta figure, most of the retail shops i know of are generally making about 30 percent margins right now. Thats acquiring product inbetween 15-2500k a unit, without all of the other costs associated with the new program..so you gotta figure either the wholesale price goes down or th retail price goes up..i figure itll be somewhere in the middle of both...ofcoarse if your stacking licenses and acquiring processing and provisioning center licenses...those people probably wont have much competition

    They're not going to be producing a quality product in those facilities, and 800k sq ft facilities growing garbage will drive street prices way up.

    It's an experiment to see if I can make my weed as shitty as yours. No matter how hard I try, I can't do it.

    Doubtful. Growers who previously supplied smaller shops that are not going to qualify will more likely divert that product too.....Those large facilites will have negligible effect on rec/street prices but the massive wave of growers left with no outlet or a giant hole in thier distribution network..eh well see.
