So if I was wanting to go help a grow, and I didn't have my current obligations, and a few other things... I would grab my backpack, and hit the West coast looking for work around a farm. The absolute worst that can happen is that you die. And that is a certainty everywhere so get out and be happy while you do it. Just don't bring your dog...
Johnny, here is my 100% best advice for you. Start posting. Show people your character, develop relationships. Once that happens, you may find what you seek.
In the meantime, please understand that many, if not most or all growers who grow to the scale where they need help tend to be extremely cautious, EXTREMELY. Not a few of us have been robbed. Not a few of us have been popped by police. So, you must expect us as a group to be extremely cautious, even though this union of states now has two sister-states that have fully legalized cannabis and 14 or 15 that accept its use medicinally.
Expect this to take years (becoming trusted enough for someone from the internet to say yeah, let's meet, and move on from there to ask you to work for them). I'm not saying it's impossible, just that it's less likely to find yourself as part of a trimming crew when people hardly know you.
I a hoping its a good one but we are not supposed to have rains this year. Suerte JK
Why work for someone,hell trimming your own bud is a bitch. I could not imagine going thru that much stress for 200 a day. JK
