Wasn't Gavita originally a Russian company that explored the possibility of growing food in space with the bulbs with the built-in reflectors, or did I imagine all of this scenario?

I also don't drink Budweiser or Coke, eat McDonalds, drive a Ford, wear Levis, buy my food from Piggly Wiggly, or play corporate consumer - whenever possible.

Someone typed a bunch of false bullshit on the internet, got called out, threw a tantrum, deleted it like a cat hiding shit in the sandbox, and then decided to criticize others as a distraction to their ignorance.

You nailed it!

Now excuse me; I gotta put on my 501s, grab a Coke, hop in my F150 and eat a Big Mac.

This is not the same as Monsanto buying up companies in the industry.
Some of the stupidity about Scott's buying out hydro companies with good established brands its quit interesting.

When they bought out GH I'd have certain people come to my store and ask. Hey did Monsanto change the GH formula yet. I'd tell them to their face they idiots.

The original Gavita bulbs were made in Russia and some East EU countries but I think they were always from Netherlands. I don't want to get too much into it only thing I don't live about Gavita is I heard the prices between what Canadian pay and what certain people pay in the US is quite a bit of a difference. ALso they are really pushing hard on their Gavita bulbs and the price is way higher then the Phillips Green 600 and 1000W bulbs.

Look. You promote capitalism. You believe you are entitled to ownership and control because you have money. This is what you get. We can keep capitalism, but without restrictions on the rich, we will always end up with oligopolies and monopolies. We will always be subjugated by the rich...


The Cannabist is promoting many things that lend them selves to big business. I gather they want that privilege or they would promote products that cannot easily be produced on large scale and they would oppose branding like snoop dog weed. A big thing that the "community" is into now is extract without even considering that is the easiest thing for fat cats to capture. They think it will make an easy win for them, but the lower the bar, the easier it will be for fat cats with immense capital leveraging.

Scotts Miracle-Gro is hiking its holdings in hydroponics.
The lawn-and-garden giant — helmed by a CEO who sees legal marijuana as a billion-dollar opportunity — shelled out $136 million for Gavita, a Dutch grow lighting and hardware company, and on Monday inked a deal to buy Arizona-based Botanicare, a plant nutrient and hydroponics products provider that notched about $40 million in sales, Scotts Miracle-Gro officials said Wednesday...

Fuck homies. It's happening.
Exactly what they want you to do. You do the heavy lifting then they come in with piles of unearned wealth (money they didn't work for but took as profits off other people's work) and buy you out. Now they got a great deal. Profits with less heavy lifting.
