The idea behind our contractor problem was easy – to grow more weed than my friend and I needed and sell the extra for profit.
Simple in concept, harder to execute in practice let me assure you.
I know the marijuana plant is called “weed” because of how it grows, however this is a falsehood. Weeds keep growing no matter how you try to stop them, and marijuana takes time, care, and patience to get anything worth smoking. Four of my friends went in with me on a major investment in cannabis seed and growing equipment. It would be months of work, followed by a cannabis harvest that would have us rolling in the yellow. I knew going in that my friend and I might not ever turn a profit from our cannabis operation, however on the other hand it was virtually impossible to lose money. I definitely used to spend many thousand dollars a year on cannabis products, however now I won’t have to ever go back to the dispensary. If my friend and I can grow so much extra cannabis that my friend and I can sell it, and pocket the profit, I will be a thrilled man. If that never happens, I still have a lifetime worth of cannabis at my disposal, which will save me many thousand dollars a year for the next decade or two. Either way will be another substantial benefit for me. Also, I must admit that living on a cannabis farm is the best job I’ve ever had. Every morning is another great morning, working in fields that reek so strongly of marijuana I get a contact high just resting there.
