Couple Counties Rented a Chopper for couple days.
Made bust but those that had Permits they did nothing to even though the state requires it be locked inside.
I was told if they got caught it was just a fine so Cops not worried about them.
To me it is early yet. They are going to have Recreational on the Ballot. Might as well.
Here in Michigan, its a mess.
Started as medicinal and then went recreational.
Before it went commercial, caregivers were doing a great job in producing good quality meds.
Now, its been years since voting Recreational yet i have yet to see 1 recreational store fully operate that isnt connected to some big shot city politician.
Greedy "investors" dumped all this money on infrastructure,power,lights workers etc and have been producing up the ass while still waiting for permits applications to be approved.
Application fees are at $25000 a pop; non refundable
The market is OVER saturated with tons of meds sitting on shelves that cant get to the recreational market.
On the medicinal side, now everyone needs a permit
dispensory permit,trimmer permit,driver permit..breeder permit...everyone needs a freaking permit.
7 years ago, my patients were donating between 4000 - 6000 per pound.
Now, you can get a pound of great meds for 1000.
All these "investors" are giving pounds away for pennies ; flooding the streets with it.
Flower,Oils, edibles, drinks ; its everywhere.
They are paying their investment loans with street money trying to recoup their losses.
Law enforcement knows all this yet they get orders to look the other way until they get orders to not look the other way.
Its a trap. Everyone is on a list.
Police helicopters are equipped with night vision and thermal.
From 1000 ft above, that growhouse/grow building lights up like las vegas but that data is considered PRIVATE.
You need a reason to use that technology and now they have it.
15 years ago, my neighbor was banging a police chopper officer.
He was using thermal and night vision to spy on her. I was in her house when he called her one day and asked her who the f* is there with you.
and heard him on speaker telling her the number of bodies in the house, and where in the house
