Then deduct all the miscellaneous vehicular, food, and living costs. If everything went perfectly there's a cool thirty grand. After how many months, how much paranoia, how much being isolated in the middle of the woods or being unable to travel anywhere? Those with the money set the rules, and not many growers have the money. That's called money laundering, kids, and nobody with half a brain is going to use a bank to wash their drug money.
Of course the next grow won't have nearly as many start-up costs. Murphy punishes you with his law and your generator breaks down, infects your plants with mites, or inflicts you with a burglary. The poor chumps get worked and exploited by those who have the resources and funds. (Please note these calculations do not even take into consideration the pot-smoking habits of most growers. In local terms, that's seven to ten grand in potential profit gone up in smoke. Remember, financial institutions and currency brokers have been obligated to help fight the war on drugs for several decades.
If the crop goes perfectly, and there are no evictions, molds, early freezes, loss of power, unexpected emergencies with no friend to come water the plants for three days, etc., then the project will probably earn ,000. Helping water, tend, or guard a crop pays much, much worse. Restated, a ten thousand dollar loan costs twenty grand.
This is dependent upon time of year, quality of strain, desperation of the buyer and seller, etc. Say costs are twenty grand for living and twenty grand for setting up, that makes forty K in order to get rolling. Usually people do that simply to apprentice, to get into the industry, to learn tricks of the trade. First they have to pay back the principal to the grantor. These are rumored to be the standard operation rates; some are better, some get much worse.
More if you're buying organic food or hemp clothing which many growers, especially the young ones, tend to do. The cost of an operation: thousand in order to set up a decent 10 light grow operation including generators, bulbs, soil, starts, etc. One big thing about money: it takes money to make money. However, most of these theoretical people who have money are not going to grow. Instead, they'll front money and let somebody else do the dirty work. People usually have to live in the county for years before anybody will trust them at all. People are rumored to get deaded over issues like that. Usually growing on another person's land costs at least half of the harvest, more if the land-owner fronted cash to help support the grower.
Vehicle: - 10 thousand a year, average the outright purchase of an old vehicle every year or two or acquiring a new vehicle with cost spread out over 3 - 5 years. Volvos and Yugos just don't cut it on the back ruts. Now that's just fifteen to twenty-six thousand a year in living costs. And when there's tens of thousands of dollars, cash, in your hands after a harvest you're not gonna blow eight bucks on a sixer of Dead Guy Ale instead of the two bucks for a forty of Olde English 800, right? Once this is going the next cycle will cost about five thousand cash to maintain since you already have the lights, the gear, the plants to make clones from, etc. After all, this is Humboldt County and they can get weed whenever they want. Others, particularly the youngsters who have not earned the trust of their better connected, more experienced elders, work it out in sweat. Assist with the watering and guarding of someone else's patch. That means buying their food, gas, toilet paper, etc., while the grower tends to the crop.
Usually there is only one way in and one way out -- by four wheel drive. And it does happen, unfortunately, because people are stupid.
Small planes and helicopters literally buzz the entire county with low-level flyovers looking for the crop.
The importance of farmers, however, can be felt immediately in almost any rural community.Yet there are a lot of unemployed people or individuals working under the broad description of "forestry." Yes, indeed, forestry is an important part of the local lumber industry. However, to return to our theme: how do a thousand people, or several thousand when you take in all the rural area surrounding your typical town, manage to support themselves, pay for their property, buy groceries, etc., when there is maybe one job for roughly every 30 people? Yet for all the illegal dosh in the county you can barely tell it's there. They don't know you, they probably won't like you, and most of them definitely have firearms. Would you drive up into the back-hills of Idaho or West Virginia just for kicks? Here are some basic, rough numbers: Rent: - 8 thousand/ year -- buying property costs even more. It's not anywhere that almost any beginning grower is going to find it.However, how exactly does a tree planter afford to pay for a 2002 Dodge Ram with a booming digital sound system, Cummins engine, and leather interior with cash? Food, beer, miscellaneous drugs, clothes, etc.: - 8 thousand a year. Especially when they haven't had any for eight or nine months. Unless they're rich kids, yuppies rediscovering their hippie roots by moving here to grow and "live off the land, brother," or somehow independently wealthy they don't have the money. If they have good, trustworthy contacts and are known to be honorable they may be fronted some gear, some farming supplies like starts, or, optimally, money. Because it is pretty much a given that if an operation is busted then the investor loses their principal and the farmer loses their crop. It doesn't take a genius to plot: I'll raid my own patch and then claim I don't owe Joe Bob any money 'cause it was the cops.No problem with that aching tooth, jaw, and an acrid pus taste in your mouth, right?After all you're growing pot and what could be better than that?
