    Yup. I mentioned that in one of my first threads when I actually signed up. $50 ounces or some such and got lambasted for it. In a very big way. It's all good tho. Save up! I didn't really put you on ignore. You're a lady. And I still have a secret crush on you. We connect with crossbow enthusiasm. My home boy shot mine a few weeks ago. Damn it was amazing. He's like an afghan vet. Young guy. This ole fool hands ain't steady enough anymore. Anyway. You will be alright. Deep inside you have the peace and love.

    I don't hate hate to say it. I've ordered stuff from RIU advertisers. Having a website ain't free. And I got quality stuff too. It's all good. Super Bowl ain't cheap either. Money gotta come from somewhere it would be like $0000's pay per view. Just saying young bro. It's the way of things.

    This is actually what I want. It will be worth growing, still, just maybe not so worth selling.

    There's a lot of road between here and there. When that day comes unless one's operation is sky-high top-notch no compromise perfection then it will be hard to make money. Between now and then a lot can happen. There was a time that MySpace seemed like it was going to rule the world, AOL too, the internet is maturing, but there's still room there. Cannabis will go through a similar maturation as a (Comodity) market, I believe.

    I think you guys are underestimating the lazyness and lack of determination People have, just because anyone would be allowed to grow their own doesn't mean they will, everyone is free to grow corn or brew alcohol but most are just consumers who prefer to stop by the store instead of working for it. A market will always exist. There are 20+ micro brewieries where I live who do very well for themselves, but the Budweiser plant runs 3 shifts 7 days a week,product flood doesn't seem to hurt the I wanna get fucked up market much at all lol

    i think it better to have more of an interest, so you can be more independent, of course there's a learning curve, and a steep one, however this can keep you active, up to a point

    I agree with you on this, a market will always exist, and due to that natural human laziness there will be business opportunities in it for a long time.
    Pleasure markets; alcohol, prostitution, porn, gambling, candy, ice cream (Mormons love their ice cream!) and such are rarely hurt by economic downturns, in fact they sometimes boom during them, and yeah, product flooding almost feeds the beer market, rather than starve it. Give me a really clean vodka or gin any day. I like a good beer, but only about 1 at a time.

    I personally don't grow for prophet just for very sick people who are easily targeted and sold second rate medicine that cannot grow themselves......a lot of people I know who are trying to make a living just through mmj are grasping on to the hope that very hi quality mmj will help them price wise with all the low grade quantity that's out there ....and to certain degree there right they have people who would rather spend the extra buck to get good meds ......but now there's actually lots of well grown flooding the area .......soon it will be just a hobby nothing more ....which is fine for me but bad news for some great growers

    i don't waste any green, no trim, its all processed. i do remember trimming by hand and machine, and at the end of it, once all the buds where trimmed the trim had started to compost,

    i don't have the space to dry the trim, as it will take up to much space, so now it is cold washed with everclear, or something similar.
    a good quality oil is made from this trim, makes you sleep like a baby, and with out pain

    I would say that number is higher. Because of the tell nobody rule. Because you can get grow stuff at garden centers and hardware stores. I feel that the statistic will only be correct when full legalization is realized. If you ask me. I would say no I don't. So we have 2.5% of the population that are willing to admit it. That seems plauseable to me.

    I'd rather believe the study had some way to account for that.

    The only ones who think this way are those seeking to profit from the black market. Among the few people who got rich off the gold rush were those selling supplies to prospectors but once the rush was over they all went back home. That's what will happen to "the industry" I predict. But then again I don't see how the friends & family I already hook up on the regular will ever stop buying from me to go pay taxes and markup at a dispensary once they can. People I know don't even want to bother with the trouble of growing their own but that could change once you are able to drop a few clones in your garden out back & have a supply for almost nothing.

    far more people now are growing food and cannabis than they were even 5 years ago. Even schools are teaching kid s how to grow food now. My school's never did that.

    How many farmers markets are there every weekend these days.

    A lot more people are brewing beer now too. Look at all the microbreweries that popped up over the last 10 years. By the the thousands.


    If you go to Iowa everyone grows corn. I thought my buddy was just joking until I went to visit him. The have corn fairs. You see breeds of corn there that you will never see anywhere. They bred peaches and corn together even...

    The only ones who don't have any work ethics is anyone born after 1990
