Starting on the first of the year, a lot of new changes are going to take effect.
Most of the changes do not affect me personally, but one of the new laws absolutely does.
No one will be able to farm marijuana unless they own at least 100 acres of property. The new law passed with only 51% of the majority. Most farmers don’t want to be limited by the size of their fields. Only the top farmers can afford that much property, so it really cuts out all of the little guys and leaves us with no place to get in on the profit. The new laws are absolutely going to end some small farming operations. One of my friends was talking about starting a co-op, but I’m not 100% sure how that would work. I’m willing to try just about anything, but I don’t want to break the law. I won’t continue harvesting or growing marijuana after the first of the year unless there are some changes that will make it legal. There is a meeting in town next week to discuss the coop. Jack said he was bringing someone from the city to talk about it with us and explain everything in detail. He believes co-op marijuana farming is the way to go now that the big city companies are trying to push out the little guys. There is honestly room in this industry for everyone. Marijuana accounts for more than 2 billion dollars of revenue each year. Even the little guy should be able to profit from those numbers.
