Thank you guys in advance
....1st DO A SEARCH ON IC MAG
this subject has been heavily
talked about..you will find EVERY answer to any question on moving to Cali..yeah c'mon over I have a friend who needs almost brand new used grow equipment from ANOTHER (of dozens) of out of state peeps who think just move to Cali and grow weed = happines.
Good luck your SOOOOO going to need it!
Here is what I wrote 2 days ago...(cut n pasted) too tired to re-type it all
============================== ============================== ============================== ===============
Yeah come to Cali....let's see how much we have going for us;
1) Largest single budget DEFICIT
of ANY state in the US (and MANY countries)
2) Unemployment still at 9.8% (and MUCH
higher in cheaper area's to live) NO JOBS GOT IT!!!!???!!!
3) One of the HIGHEST
income and tax rate in the US
4) Market FLOODED
with cheap, mid-grade outdoor (right now) and indoor, Oh did I mention you BETTER
damn well have your marketing down PAT bish or your going to be waiting on a 90 day consignment at the dispensary and that's AFTER he/she beats you up like a red-headed step child on your Triple AAA Fire indoor/outdoor prices.
5) Some of the HIGHEST
PG&E rates in the US (SO you want to be a big indoor grower I run 3200 watts and my MONTHLY
power bill is right around $950+) You can buy a house in Michigan for less than that
6) I think other's mentioned the incredible amount's of "cartel" gang outdoor AND indoor grows from the likes of; Mexican cartels, Asian Gangs, Gangs in general looking for fast money, oh and their boo is always with the "patient" in mind ( I'm being totally sarcastic here, they use all the nasty grow nutrients PGR WHATEVER to get it out the door and into cash)
7)Why don't you just go onto Craigslist and SEE
what it COST's
to rent a decent 2 or 3 bedroom house (hell even a STUDIO
apartment) here in Cali.....I bet you will go "WTF???
8) Do I even NEED to mention what we pay for gas here? I went north yesterday to pick up 3 packs, paid $3.78 PER gallon and that's AFTER
gas has fallen over the last month and a half.
Edit: Note...living cost's for everything here are much higher, food, clothing, DOG / CAT food...you name it, it will cost a lot more here, just something to think about. By the way I just watched a news piece on the price of Milk here in California, their talking $8.00 per gallon of milk in the next 2 years...$8.00 BUCKS per GALLON!
come to California, then I will buy YOUR
slightly used hydro equipment after you cannot get a break even price for your medication, run out of money, cannot find a job and move back in with mom or dad. I have been doing this for 3 years , talked to MANY growers who just gave up, and then I use the equipment to build out my next grow...lol I love hydro equipment at 1/3 what it cost's new!
Honestly folks California is VERY
hard to make a living in, I've listed where you should try and start a legal MMJ business(and you better DAMN well treat it as a business if you want to make it). I would suggest the following states in order of best to worst;
and at the end .....California
Good luck and I know some of you will still come, their is one IC member who is riding a bicycle with a little trailer for his dog in the MIDDLE of winter to come out here...LOL..gotta love determination..that will help him once he get's out here.
