    Well, if I manage 5% of that, I will be ecstatic. As for thieves, that is a big concern with my 2 acres of bottom on the creek. I just bought an AR10 and have infrared gunsight. My strategy will be to mount motion activated lights where I am able and if I catch someone, run a few rounds of thundering 308 into the ground. Even the tweakers understand that. I do NOT want to have to plug someone... I fear I have enough karma as it is... 1/2 :) I found a 32 x 41 GLASS greenhouse in KY for $7K, replete with everything including gas heater, automatic venting, etc and he will deliver it to my door. It's a lot of money for me at the moment, but I'm thinking this is a must. Steve will establish the mama plants from which we will clone. I'm hoping to squeeze 4K plants into that smallish space, which will cost in terms of shelving. If we can harvest 3/4 of that and sell at a reasonable price with a yield of 1/2# per plant, we should make money. Anything better than that and I will be that much the happier. BTW the greenhouse is made by Rough Brothers, IIRC and retails for $40K new. This thing has everything and I have a gas well so my heating cost is essentially zero. :)

    Good idea. Let me see what I can do. UPDATE: Is there any overwhelming objection to using Google groups? I know many dislike giving google business - I am one of them, but in the interest of getting something done... I've been wading through site information for the past 15 minutes or so and my brain is already gone numb. I tried one that says no registration required and simply could not get past the second page in the setup, so I said to hell with it. Barring google, any suggestions?

    I suppose I would endeavor to use the same lab, if possible. Ridiculous, aye captain, but the so-called "law". My understanding is that the dispensaries here are paying about $700/# for non-THC bud. At those prices, it still behooves me to make the attempt. You've convinced me. Clones will be the path. My neighbor will be doing the cloning, which he has done successfully in the past with fun plants.

    I understand. Neither have I given up. I am stubborn that way. But the statistical reality is grim, I believe you may agree. Once again, I am on board. We ALL have that capacity, save perhaps those with brain lesions... like the anitfa, BLM crowds... and Democrats, har har har... That is a mark of honesty. BLM etc. are left with the same choice and they choose wrong.

    Methinks that, all big talk of "freedom" notwithstanding, most people are terrified of actual real-deal, no screwing around liberty. They want all the perceived benefits of what they view as freedom while recoiling with intense and reflexive violence when confronted with the costs. Such people, as represented by the Meaner, have no real understanding of the concept and their blood boils at the mere suggestion of it. They actually think that freedom is free of cost. That is because they are corrupted and willful idiots. The United States is a club of sorts, politically speaking. If you want to be in the club (as a state), you have to follow certain rules such as not infringing on the right to keep and bear arms. In a more perfect humanity, I would have no problem with this aspect of the American political architecture. It makes strong sense. But as we can all see, humans trend to corruption, which has saddled us with drug laws and so forth, which completely disparages and destroys the value of what this nation is SUPPOSED to be: a voluntary confederation of individual and disparate nations who have come together under an umbrella of common principles that speak to the freedom of men and the strict and short-leash limitation of so-called "government". This confederation is a good thing, in principle. It is, in fact, miraculous. Sadly, we Americans have dishonored this architecture, as well as ourselves and all that is morally praiseworthy from virtually the first days of the republic, the Whiskey Rebellion providing sufficient and incontrovertible proof that tyranny immediately took hold in the land of the free. The experiment failed IMMEDIATELY. Why? Because humans. I am sad to say that there is little to recommend us.

    Mike Arnold, the WV state administrator for industrial hemp told me to expect losses. One site should suffer none as it is in the middle of my next door neighbor's 400+acres, far from the road. I'm thinking that the markets are a mite different here in WV at this time. That stands to change down the road, but right now a 2g vial of CBD oil is fetching $200-$250. The folks at Appalachian Cannabis say they are getting about 80-90g of CBD/pound of raw material, which translates wholesale into not less than $4K/pound. At this point, this is all exploratory for us. If we find it viable for expansion, expand we will.

    Well, my application is in and I had Mike Arnold, the administrator here in WV look at it and he said there is no reason it should not be approved, pending clean background checks. Starting small with not more than four acres. I'm looking for a high tunnel so I can generate clones and seed in winter. I have a gas well with free gas, so I can heat it for nothing, save the cost of the heater. I have to say though, that the risk is pretty high. If a single plant tests over 0.3%, the entire crop at a given site burns. If a neighbor substitutes a THC plant and it is discovered, I go to jail, not them. Anything goes wrong, legally speaking, and it's all on me. The opinion, however, appears to be that this will relax with time. I hope so because I already have a head full of gray hair. The drug-war mindset is alive and well, which means freedom is not.

    One other thing I intend on doing is cobbling up a super-critical CO2 system. Commercial systems are too $$. I will also be checking into steam extraction and HSCCC.

    Yeah, we intend on cloning... first to provide stock for ourselves, and secondly for sale to other operations. I am looking for a high-tunnel. There are plenty of them for sale.

    Steve and I have discussed this and we will do some clones, but suspect that they are not as strong as the plants grown from seed. Our first season should give us some firm notion on this. Steve's my next door neighbor, overall fine man, and just decided he was my business partner, which I found amusing, flattering, and welcome all at once. We work well together, so I have no apprehensions about how this will work in the relevant senses.

    Kanawha and Roane counties, West Virginia. Oddly, I have learned that WV has the climate that is closest to that of the so-called "emerald triangle". I find that to be very good news. This is the third year for WV. I was going to do this year one, but the invasive nature of the application put me off. Last year, when I learned of the profit potential, I was forced by basic sense to reevaluate my position, and here I am. Monday I submit the application.

    That will be on the agenda, provided sufficient success. Hemp farming is in its second infancy. With the institution of the idiotic drug war of which hemp was the foundational pretext, all the good knowledge of how to farm this invaluable plant went the way of the dodo with the passing of the farmers who'd engaged in industrial-grade cultivation. We are now starting largely from scratch and it is going to take a while to refigure the ins and outs of large-scale hemp production, which is a very different proposition from raising a couple of dope plants. So time will tell. Depending on how things turn out, I may have several hundred acres at my disposal. That aside, yes, I intend on finding more ground, though things are not quite that simple. Because of its current high market value, security becomes a significant issue. I am in little humor to be robbed, but I am of a nearly equal mind regarding shooting looters. This endeavor, while serious, is intended to be a win-win. The thought of harming or killing a thief is not appealing, though I will not go so far as to say that I would not defend my property. Everything has its cost. BTW, the price of hemp seed is OUTRAGEOUS, being between $1 and $10 per seed. We will be generating our own seed in greenhouse conditions, hopefully this year. At those prices, I am yet to be convinced that the real money, at least for the short term, lies in seed propagation and sales.

    My distal plan for 2020 is to raise approximately 3-4 acres of industrial hemp. My intention is to rais cultivars high in CBDs, as this is where the money is to be found at this time. I plan on processing buds and producing oil, as well as selling trimmed buds. If you are so inclined, do send your good wishes my way. Cheers.

I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this. To think not only that some people would dare usurp the authority to remove those which are the most obvious prerogatives of free men, but also that we as a people would
