When it comes to marijuana, the times are truly changing. For the longest time, we’ve lived in a country where basically having any amount of marijuana was a crime, and having enough that the government says you’re a dealer was cause enough for felony charges that would absolutely ruin your day. Now, of course, there are some states where you can go about growing marijuana and consuming marijuana legally, so long as you have a medical card and have gotten your marijuana from an approved dispensary or something similar. Of course, this being the case, you are only allowed to have so much marijuana on hand at any given time, and this means that you’re going to be in trouble, real trouble, if you don’t stay under that limit. Or if you share with someone. Or, in some states, if you get caught growing marijuana on your own.
Now, there is more that you should know about the laws as they apply to marijuana. You see, the federal government decided that you don’t get to have marijuana at all. When you’re within the confines of your own state, you are going to be able to sell marijuana with relative impunity, so long as you follow the state laws and don’t ignore any of them. If you go outside of it, though, you’re open to all sorts of action from the federal government, and this means that you’re going to be in for a world of hurt, for having your marijuana seized, for having assets seized, things like that. This is pretty much the worst thing that can happen to you.
Now, if you’d like to get in on the money that is there to be mad in this immense market, you’re going to be able to, as long as you get to the market early with the product that you have to provide, and so long as you have a decent grow room design. However, if you’re interested, you need to consider a couple of things.
1. The laws in your area
Growing marijuana legally is kind of a new thing in the United States, and because of this, you’re going to grow it, you need to look at the laws that are going to be affecting you in the area that you’re going to be working and running this business.
The first thing that you’re likely to need to consider is how to get the license that you’re going to need to operate as a business. This will mostly be a process of filling out paperwork and then of spending a bit of money to get the actual license, and then you’ll be agreeing to doing some things like allowing them to come and inspect from time to time, but there’s nothing too egregious involved.
The next thing that you’re going to worry about is the federal government. If you dare to step across state lines with your weed, even if you went from one state to another that had legalized it, you’re in violation of federal laws, which allow the federal government to regulate interstate commerce. If you go across state lines, they can, and might, raid your place and take from you everything that you have grown and all assets that they have reason to believe are related to the money made from sale of marijuana
2. The plants you’ll grow
You need to understand the marijuana plants that you’re going to be growing, and you need to understand them well. What’s their favorite drink? What’s their favorite amount of time to spend in the sun? Do they prefer heavy metal or classic movie? Do they like long walks on the beach?
Some of these are jokes, but the point is you need to know a lot about what the plants are doing internally, and how to get them to grow for you just right.
3. Where you’ll want to grow them
Having and indoor growing room is kind of the big thing today in growing your own marijuana, and the reason for this is clear. If you grow indoors, you get to control the climate. You are the god of your own domain, and you can manipulate it as you like in order to do the best job of growing marijuana that you can.
If you respect the plant and you respect the law, there’s no reason to think that you can’t make a good amount of money off of selling legal marijuana, and there’s no reason to believe that you can’t have a good time while doing so.
