    Only 2.5% of people grow marijuana!

    "Cannabis is by far the most widely cultivated, trafficked and abused illicit drug. Half of all drug seizures worldwide are cannabis seizures. The geographical spread of those seizures is also global, covering practically every country of the world. About 147 million people, 2.5% of the world population, grow cannabis"

    hydroponics is a big market.

    how many hydro stores can you drive too in 15 minutes or less.

    I count 5 that I know of. I don't live closer(ish) to a state college though.

    this was kind of something me and a associate were talking about when doing some trimming. he once told me he would never stop growing, but recently told me: he might after almost 30 years be getting out of the game, "weedfllation" he calls it, and he will execute his exit plan.

    he has spend the last ten years getting dual citizenship(to one of the hard nations you can) and learning a 2 second language. before I was born he was cropping-n-stacking.

    and I quote "might as well get out while my dick still works" by my math, he can start and upper class life in an expensive country. you could never tell though, still drives that old blue chevy blazer, and same boots forever.

    but it made me think, at the rate the value of cannabis is going, Id be lucky to retire in south America some-what comfortably.

    I didn't start until 98, so I didnt really get a in on the BM boon. with power bills and laws changing in my short time, I have seen the price go down, never up. even now, I think the 15 per gram is artificially applied as the market standard, rather then a reflection then a commodity driven price.

    this is mostly cause people cheat, in CA I think: if everyone did follow the rules and only sell CA grown product, we in CA would see much better transaction rates. but with ORE.WA states on our collective heads, and their laws allowing to bring a cheaper and quality product in to CA illegally it does not help.

    good for the medical community to have the access but, it leave me wondering how long I can do this before its a waste of time.

    those numbers just come

    It says consumes cannabis. Nothing about growing. . you have to go through a bait click site before getting to that one.

    That's the word health organization. About cannabis abuse. I'm sure the numbers are fudged

    keep in mind where all the people are growing illegally. Do you think they will openly admit to growing or consuming. Even a lot of legal growers and consumers won't admit it for fear of losing their job or what people might think.

    The number is far higher for growers and consumers

    in the U.S. alone there's 1.2 million legal marijuana patients. that doesn't include recreational.

    In california there's over 20,000 commercial size grows plus all the home grows

    Being a grower and being a successful grower are entirely different . If they counted just people who can grow enough to support themselves daily every year it would be nowhere near 1 in 40 more like about 1 in 5000 . Its not easy to grow dope and most people wont take the risk.
    Cannabis is more popular than all other illegal drugs combined.
