Inside a Marijuana Grow House in the San Fernando Valley

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 13th 2012 by THCFinder

 

There is a warehouse in the San Fernando Valley that looks like any other, but inside there are rows of plants under intense lighting, fans, classical music and an unmistakable smell.
 
Video will be posted when available.
 
On the condition of anonymity, a marijuana grower agreed to share what happens in the warehouse under federal authorities’ noses.
 
Editor's Note: The grower will be referred to in this article as Mike to maintain anonymity.
 
"I would say the majority of people involved in it are paranoid, and they should be," Mike said. "In the beginning, I got into it for the money."
 
About how 10 years ago, a friend helped him establish his first cannabis grow house. Since then, Mike claims to have seven or eight working grow houses around the Southland.
 
"All over LA County, San Bernardino, Orange County," he said.
 
In the warehouse garage, there is no marijuana odor. But go beyond two separate doors, and the smell is present. Mike has 96 plants, all growing to a classical music soundtrack.
 
"They grow better with classical music," he said.
 
Everything is monitored in the room where lights mimic sunlight -- 12 hours on, 12 hours off.
 
"We control pretty much every aspect of the plant from the environment to the temperature to the humidity to the nutrients in the water," Mike said.
 
It is a sophisticated system of pipes and tubes, tubs, fans, plugs and buds. When NBC4 visited the so-called pot farm, plants in the first room still had eight weeks until harvest time. An adjacent makeshift room houses plants even less mature.

Medical marijuana grows economy, advocates say in Portland

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
PORTLAND — For Paul McCarrier, organizer of the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine trade show on Saturday, it’s all about the economy.
 
Gesturing to the large conference room floor where several dozen exhibitors were selling their wares and services, McCarrier said the legalized use of marijuana to treat various ailments created an entrepreneurial bloom.
 
Almost all were small-business operators. Many were artisans, crafting glass pipes and T-shirts. Others were experts in the cultivation of the plant, providing advice and equipment such as grow lights, compost and greenhouses.
 
And, of course, there were the marijuana growers, who were well represented among the 150 or so who wandered through the trade show. Three years after a citizens initiative was passed and the state tweaked a law to create dispensaries and licenses for growers, there are 768 people cultivating the plant, six plants per patient for no more than five patients.
 
McCarrier compared the cottage industries that have grown around legalized medical marijuana in Maine to the many businesses that supply car manufacturers with specialized parts.
 
“It’s the economy of it,” he said. McCarrier noted that he had to leave his home in Belfast to find work in Portland, but thanks to being able to provide medical marijuana for patients, he was able to return and buy land and a home.
