Yea prices are low here if youre a local, but how may people are really growing here to try and sell to a disp, compared to how many exporting...and even at a low price you can still make bank if you have any idea of what youre doing.
OP, I moved here from TX 5 years ago, my life has never been better and Ive made more money than I could have ever dreamed of. If this is where you are supposed to be then you will make it. See, I think people in CA hate on outsiders because they feel threatened. Native CA folks dont grow that good of weed, as a whole, and when people move cross country to realize their dreams, they typically arent doing it on a whim, they have paper stacked and the knowledge and passion to grow, likely better than 90% of other growers in CA. Natives realize this and feel threatened, hence the haters.
I think people tend to forget that weed gets smoked up fast, there will always be a demand for more, always. Don't listen to the hate, especially from people that only have a 4 light bedroom grow, do your homework and you will be fine.
Why do you call it hate? Over and over? As far as I can see, the responders are simply trying to help this guy out by letting him know what he really needs
before blindly coming out here without enough dough to see him through.
There is a shit-ton of brand new equipment on CL from people that had the idea that growing is easy money.
They put 3k on their credit card for lights and nutes and filters and such, then run up a 1 or 2k PG&E bill.
Then their prize crop get ruined by PM or mites or inexperience, and the shit hits the fan.
No money for CC bill, no money for rent, no money for PG&E. Sell that shit on CL for 25% of what they payed for it and maybe they can pay PG&E.
It's not hate. It's compassion. Trying to help inform our brothers so they can make informed decisions with their lives.
If your coming to California, find a place to live and get a job that supports your life BEFORE you start to grow.
That way at least you won't be joining the tons of homeless here in CA.
