    Yeah, but what little i know about growing it (very little) implies that to grow stronger strains it takes alot of time, breeding and the proper environment. Like any sort of plant.

    Im mostly extrapolating from what my one buddy from landscaping told me when he was thinking of starting a legal grow op here for medical grade stuff.

    Hydroponics is what we see alot around here, mostly because it was easier to hide. Most of that stuff was shit tier as i understand, but that was due to the ppl growing it being inept burnouts who dont understand basic plant care.


    A couple of greenhouses up in the hills made bank but i think they sold elsewhere so idk. They were more organized.

    No just simple cross breeding. A pot plant reaches maturity in six months (?) or so. If no improvement in the concentration, (there are even labs now which specifically test for THC strength) you shitcan the parent plant. In a couple of years you can go from typical 6% to 20%. I believe the most potent is something like 29%. Then there are other methods, oil which gets it up to something like 60% and solids which top out at 85%(?).

    This ain't your hippy aunt's pot stash.

    Nice statistics fudging, the tax revenue from marijuana was 100 million in the year 2015, it is over 200 million in the year 2016
    That is ridiculous growth from the previous year, showing the robustness of the industry.
    It is projected that sales will go from 1 billion in 2016 to 21 billion by 2021, so try a 4 billion tax annual revenue projection in coming years...

    http://fortune.com/2016/12/13/colorado-billion-legal-marijuana-sales/
    So last year try 80k a school if you were honestly looking for the real figures and not nit picking 2016 state budgets with a 2015 revenue

    And ooh looky Tim is hiding what percent change in homelessness that makes him title it a "FUCKING FAILURE"
    https://www.cpr.org/news/newsbeat/colorado-sees-rise-in-homeless-population
    Oh because it's a 6% increase....lol so over a billion dollars added to tax revenue and 10k more hobos, woopydidooo

    ty for info. "Give it what it needs to be happy" makes it sound like a lil puppy dog but I see how that translates over. Now, tell me how to end my travelling circus of death and make my orchids bloom.
    for purely academic pursuits or... Yeah. lets leave it at that then.

    You're fucking retarded if you think the revenue stream is going to increase forever. Eventually the market will be come saturated.
    21 Billion dollars in sales by 2021. Wow talk about a pipe dream. That's a lot of fucking pot. Really. A LOT OF FUCKING POT.

    What's the going rate at the dispensary say $500 an ounce? (probably overpriced) Let's do a little math and see if that's even feasible.

    2021 is less than three years away so let's leave out the population growth factor. Unless you really depend on infants toking up.
    21B/500 = 42 Million. They would have to sell 42 million ounces of pot per year.
    That's 2, 625,000 POUNDS OF POT. Ok? We still good?
    According to the US Census 2010 the projected total population of Colorado is 5,540,545 (2016) Starting to see a problem with those projections?
    So each man, woman and child will have to buy 7.58 ounces of pot per year.

    Just curious. How much pot do you smoke a year? You tell me in PMs that you occasionally smoke or use it as a reward after a hard course blah blah. Ok I get that. So am I correct in presuming that you smoke significantly LESS that that amount? Plus the cost 7.5x 500 = $3750. That's a lot of fucking money on wacky tobaccy. A smart pot smoking Jew would grow his own wouldn't he? So where's the tax revenue? Or are you going to rely on pot tourism, which is a complete failure and will continue to trend down as more states open up to the idea of legalized pot. Why travel to Colorado to get some smoke, when you can take the city bus to the local dispensary? If anything Colorado should push for states NOT to legalize to protect their market.

    Are you suggesting that the current increasing population of hobos will somehow magically stop or decrease over time? Really?

    OK Tim let me explain pot economics to you, because, (no offense) but it's obvious you never bought weed in your life.
    There are levels of value to pot and this is just a sample one from the one I visit, dispensaries use different systems.
    Pricing of Weed And i don't expect you to know any of the terms anyways so I don't even see the point in my arguing other than we are both the two most functionally autistic users :awesome: (key 0=28 grams)

    edibles, drinkable, oils and etc usually on their own pricing tier, but you can expect people to pay 60-500$ on different grades, usually the edibles being way more expensive due to the amazing psychedelic experience that they render possible.
    Consider the IRL list is way bigger than mine and new pot formats are always discovered, richer pot heads will always pay more for clearer but stronger highs.

    Gold = Cavier (best quality strains soaked with hash and oil and coated in Kief) Pricing can be 40/gram or more and easily worth it, thus yes up to 800 an 0 and not even Willie Nelson would finish for months minimum
    Yellow = Great quality strain, more like 400-300 an 0
    Red = high quality strain 300-150 an 0
    Blue = BARGAIN BIN 50 to an 0 super duper cheap

    Now the key to understanding this is that there are strains called LANDMARKS, these reinvent the pot market and are hard to grow strains because the conditions must mirror the countries they are found. For instance, there is a new strain found in the DRC congo that requires super high humidity for growth and careful breeding, which can possibly spike a price at 1000 to an 0 if its supply is contained to one company. Whereas, yesterdays Yellow strain can be found in the blue bin for over production.

    So yes, that pricing possibility is vast and don't forget vapes and bongs breaking and being rebought, regardless your Colorado population is NOT who is buying.
    As far as an 0 a year being a limitation that has to be dispersed???
    Lol some people smoke that in a week, personally, it takes me 3 months to finish 14 grams but some people can go through 10 0s in a year, so your math is completely out of wack with irl consumer habits.

    Think of all those neighboring states and ALL the crazy pot heads flying in from out of state and you can get a better picture. Remember, some pot heads will fly in on a group of 3 and smoke over an 0 in a smoke session and do this for a week.
    Look at the stock market for alcohol and you can get a clue, https://www.fool.com/quote/nyse/anheuser-busch-inbev-nv/bud
    114$ a share for a beer company?

    Yes because the first entrepreneurs to the market buy up the newer markets in other states, thus forget Colorado and its visitors as the tax revenue source and start thinking of Colorado pot branches in Nevada or California as state taxable income generated to the Colorado companies.

    The point is if we continue to delay legalization in some states, they become mere branches to the first green gold states or even worse, our states lose out to Canadian branches of Aphria or Canopy Growth, both bullishly breaching towards the double digit stock prices as an elastic standard.

    Lovely thread.

    @wretchedgretchen was probably talking about cultivated strains grown under sodium lamps and in hydroponic systems. 3-4 months, even less when you're growing automaticas - for example: https://sensiseeds.com/en/feminized-seeds/sensi-seeds/sensi-skunk-autoflowering
    Not anymore, bud. :obama:
    Ever since the initial legalization in Colorado, they've literally fucked the best Dutch seed banks. Read some High Times, sometimes. It's fucking madness. But i dig that, and i believe that USA will push things even further.

    Clearly the only solution to Colorado's homeless problem is nationwide legalization.
