    when legalization reaches me, i will determine if the model works for me. if it does not, i will just continue doing what i do.

    as with most growers i suspect they already have no respect for the anti-cannabis laws, but most would feel better if they could legally grow 4 plants.

    IMO, 4 plants is no bueno. how can one do any breeding, even if it's just basement chucking....? i enjoy creating new crosses, growing them and sampling. if they have promise, i take it step further. its a hobby and fun.

    i used to brew. me and a buddy made all kinds of different beers. became too much work. we haven't done it in years.

    plus our beer was rich and fattening, lol we brewed a 11% double IPA one time that blew my fermentor lid off 3 times before i installed a blowover tube. damn good beer though !!!!

    Plant count sucks in so many ways, another bottleneck to the species.

    Yup it was a good run. I am going cycle by cycle now and looking for an out. There is no way I will survive 500$ indoor weed. I guess 20 year job security was nice, too bad I didn't push harder and was only reasonable in my efforts.

    It is depressing. Now what to do with this random assortment of skills and tricks I have picked up over the years

    Here you can already buy ounces of mids for roughly a 100 when ordering from MOM’s. Does the US have mail order marijuana ? In Canada we have a huge selection to choose from.

    So money is all that matters to you? You will sell anything that makes you money even if it kills or destroys lives (meth)?

    Legalization can't put you to work at mcdonalds fast enough. Sorry, that is despicable.

    I feel like this form of legalization is handing the power of cannabis over to corporate America. turning it into a commodity item.
    Going to crush out all the small good honest people.
    But I guess people making a greedy buck of this plant is nothing new.

    I couls grow weed or i could work a mundane job that i will never like and waste all my life away behind a desk,

    Its not about money but i dont expect you to understand why long term growers would rather grow than take shit in a worthless job.

    Now read the thread again and understand that it was a dig at the legal trade (which is only about money...!) and our dislike at putting us out of a job.

    Also im well educated but have scoliosis as well as a couple other disabilitating conditions so work can be hard for me, go figure why i love to smoke ans naturally saw a way forward growing plus pain relief.

    Fuck do all these recent forum members get off trying to slander me, go away please....!

    There will always be all levels of quality around. The market will set prices as such based on quality and quantity available. If everyone starts growing fire, or even big corporations start growing organic fire large scale then prices will drop and they will control the market.Thats kindof what were seeing now but its not fire, its at best average dank imo, probably worse.
    I like to think they wont be able to grow high grade, not like the small scale organic guys do. but we will see in time.
    Once its legal demand will skyrocket, if dispensaries are setup like Colorado with vertical integration to keep the market truly open and competitive to a range of people, then we might be okay (us small timers)

    The vast majority of "new" consumers appear to me to be enjoying preloaded pen carts, edibles, and the occasional preroll. The demand for top shelf flowers isn't going to be that high.
