Back in November of this past year, I ran into a group of extremely intelligent people who were in town to discuss a new business idea.
I happened to be working at the pizzeria that weekend, and they came in twice for supper and sat in our section.
I did not want to overstep our boundaries, however their conversations were rather intriguing. They were talking about how many plants they could fit in their warehouse growing room area. I had heard a little about this pot growing industry in our area and wanted to learn more about it. From what I heard them saying, they would be able to fit nearly a thousand plants in the sizable growing room. I did some quick math in my head and suddenly came to see that I was in the wrong business. These seasoned farmers and I got to talking later that night. They informed me that they were making nearly $15,000 a day with their grow warehouse. Not only was this an alarming profit, however this was their third grow room! I asked one of the farmers how they actually got involved in the pot growing industry, and each person had a very interesting story to tell. Even though many of these people were lifelong farmers and got their pot growing skills from what they learned over the years, they were all incredibly smart when it came down to the logistics of growing. After our informative conversation, I really wondered if I had a future in the industry of growing cannabis.
