Well I’m celebrating. Also today Vermont was ranked number 1 state in the country to live in. The summers are amazing enough to make you forget about the almost endless wintersIf I was a grower living in Vermont or any other state planning to go legal I’d be cringing, not celebrating. Legalization in most states and up here in Canada is still “prohibition” cause the law is waiting to nail anyone who doesn’t toe the line. I saw a documentary on Colorado a while ago that was shot as soon as that state had legalized and as far as I know it had the smoothest transition and everyone seemed happy. Things may have changed since for the worst but when it first went legal, the growers were happy, dispensaries were happy and of course the government was happy. Everywhere else, legalization has become a nightmare of convoluted laws and up here in Canada the Prime Minister (who was recently charged with sexual assault!) wants to up jail time for anyone caught selling or growing commercially without all the proper licenses, from 10 to 15 years automatic hard time! Bizarre because Canada has always turned blind eye to illegal large growers and is after other hard drug producers who crank out Meth by the ton—Meth is a big seller up here. The one great thing about Vermont is that if you’re an “outsider” Vermont will pay you $10,000 to move there and get a job. Hobby growers have never had to really worry cause as long as they kept their grow a secret, nobody would bother them and lots of hobby growers don’t even care about that anymore and brag about their little grows to anyone who’s friendly. But what about a friendly cop? People who brag to an undercover cop deserve to get caught.
So if you’re a hobby grower and love to ski Vermont may be just the place for you if you want to move there. Up here in Canada, BC has always been famous for letting big underground growers be because its always been good for their economy. When I set up in BC to grow in the mountains without a license I’ve always kept my operation a secret and never have had any trouble. Everyone in my operation including me shares in all the work and shares equally in all the profits. This is why we’ve never had to hire hand-trimmers. A dishonest hand-trimmer who’ll rat you out to the Feds to make an extra buck has always been the fastest way to end up in jail! So we’ve got auto-trimming machines now and before that we trimmed all our Buds ourselves to keep everything we do secret. Come harvest time, we just sell in bulk to our trusted connections. We’re trusted because we never use chemicals or pesticides, grow all-organic the best Bud around for a fair price. Our auto-trimming machines have helped us do just that. At first they really hurt us cause all the expensive machines we bought slowed us down with all the cleaning and maintenance their blades needed. Then we found a TTT auto-trimmer that didn’t use blades and never needed maintenance and never broke down. Come harvest time now, and we have several year-round, trimming never slows us down and our TTT’s cost a fraction together (we got 5) compared to what one of those expensive trimmers with blades cost. If you wanna grow big, without government interference, find a nice wilderness valley in BC to settle down in. You can start small and get big real fast, cause all the dispensaries in Vancouver have always been hungry for good weed whether it was legally produced or not!
