    I think that's part of the point of it. Its throwing a bone to law enforcement. They can keep on arresting people for petty crap and some people can grow

    The only good in this law was to start allowing retail storefront sales, .
    And we still dont have sales. This law was very bad for the people of maine.

    I really think In a few years the bho and distillate trend will be deemed unhealthy. It’s very much untested in long term side effects, and it’s basically mimicking a pharmaceutical grade product. People into rosin are going to kill it in the organic community. Also pure outdoor farmers say 2-3000 sqf can still make money at 300-800 a lb. You just gotta act like a farmer. After our outdoor season this year we offer 3$ grams at our shop and have grams of rosin starting at 15$. We also broker good outdoor grown in the state if anyone is in that position.

    Aint that the truth growers have to find there niche to survive

    Potato farmers up here faced a similar situation years back, and basically were forced into 3 choices.
    Go big and grab their share of the pie
    Cut overhead and find a niche market
    Get out of the game

    I hear ya URB, I just got a job and now not so dependent on the sole income of the grow to support family and operational needs.

    Still growing, but more as an art and hobby.

    No, average is 1200 bulk buys.

    top can be 1800-2k dependent on what the buyer is looking for.

    IMO it will/should get worse before it gets better. 1200 is a great price right now.

    I think there will be less caregivers out there in the coming year alot of gear out there for sale and fully operational grow ops for sale too. Maybe prices will stabilize but not for a while .

    Legal pot had to start somewhere. With Massachusetts and Canada for neighbors big money can't dominate for very long. Low plant count and high retail only encourages the black market. California black market prices have come down to the $1200 area.

    There's allot of woods in Maine.

    Ding! Ding! Ding! all last three post hit on the head.

    I remember some people mentioning that yrs ago and they are right.

    Prices are way down and will go further as I can see until it will get better. The people with the deepest pockets will survive in the legal market.

    Black market...well..we all know will live and prosper.
