The problem is going to be Monsanto. They already purchased a company (forgot the name) that growers were sending in samples for DNA charting. They will patent strains and come after anyone they wish. Once they win several lawsuits the legal guys are going to be tied to using their products. They have already done it with big Ag and I really do not see a reason for them to change their battle plan. I am aware of a couple of frames up in the Berkley California area that cannot grow crops on their land. They refused to pay for seeds from Monsanto, but had grown Monsanto seeds on the property. Monsanto sued and won. Claiming that their seeds were already in the ground from previous harvests. The only resolution was to remove like 10" of top soil, needless to say that was not economical for the farmer.Sadly, I completely agree. The cost efficiency of growing outdoors in some of these warmer climates is just too good to ignore. However, I do believe there is still a narrow window to succeed indoors in many states. My business plan involves gaining enough traction in any state which will allow me to pivot to a warmer climate when the federal sweep happens. I'm hoping my family in GA will come in handy LOL. I don't know about $200/ lb but it will drop substantially. Hopefully at that point I will have enough standing to continue in a craft market or sellout and reinvest to make my pivot outdoors down south. I have a background in biochemistry with a concentration in genetics, so my dream is to cross strains one day and produce myself a perfect little 70/30 Sativa blend with just enough body effects to allow me to enjoy my favorite hobby of running!
