In Colorado, and in a handful of cities across the United States, a long-awaited event has happened, within the last four years, really, allowing people to freely enjoy something that, for many, has been a source of income (although the income was risky, to say the least). I’m talking about the legalization of recreational marijuana.
Sure, in some places, it was more or less ‘legal’ before, in one way or another. Some cities, counties, provinces, and even a state or two, just didn’t devote a lot of time and resources to harassing the people who bought and sold marijuana illegally. Many states (and cities) had laws saying that, under a certain amount, it was basically a minor misdemeanor, meaning you paid a fine and little else would happen to you for your first offense. Some areas even took the ‘Canadian’ approach, modeled after what our neighbors to the North do, which is to say that, when they catch someone with marijuana, it’s up to the officer if they want to confiscate it or just let the people go with a warning, so long as they aren’t engaged in any other criminal activity. However, the laws have changed for many places today.
Outright legalization and decriminalization are very similar concepts, but legalization is greatly preferable. Decriminalization, in many places, means simply that if you have it, it isn’t a crime (although many of those places set a limit on how much you can have at any time, saying that it should be for personal recreational use only, which is their way of trying to squash the people who are dealing rather than smoking), although, so long as you don’t have said marijuana while in the midst of commission of another crime. And surely, it’s great to be able to not be worried that John Law will arrest you for having less than an ounce of marijuana on hand, but it isn’t the same as outright legalization.
Legalization means that not only are there no penalties for using marijuana, outside of those associated with abuse of it or impaired driving, for example, but also that you will actually be able to go to a state licensed business with state government oversight and buy the copious amounts of ganja that you may crave (so long as your billfold is permitting; alas, if you’re broke, still no weed for you). With this growth in legal demand in the state of Colorado, though, comes a demand for the ability to grow said marijuana, and thus, for grow rooms.
To be specific, modular marijuana grow rooms are the new big thing in marijuana grow rooms (at least for the time being), and it isn’t hard to see why. They’re a big step up in the ability to set up a grow room in any room with a reasonable amount of space and the appropriate means to be used to grow marijuana, and it’s much cheaper for a small business (dispensary) to set up a grow room en suite rather than, for example, having to rent some sort of warehouse or greenhouse, both of which can be expensive to run (especially when it comes to power consumption), to say nothing of the actual cost of renting additional space.
Then, there’s the benefit you get from buying something that is easily expandable. If you have a warehouse, or you have a greenhouse, especially if you’re a dispensary that has recently opened, you’re probably not going to have the customer base to require you to use the entire square footage to grow, at least not at the beginning. So, any room you’re not using becomes wasted money, but on the other hand, should you grow extra that you don’t need, you run the risk of having to dispose of it before being able to sell it, which is also waste. It’s a hard situation to be in!
A great benefit of having a modular marijuana grow room, on the other hand, is how easy it is to add on to it. Space permitting, the more growing capacity you need, the more equipment you buy, the more you grow. As business demands more, you expand, and as it demands more yet again, you expand again, keeping up with the demand that you need to supply, while not having a lot of extra space being wasted.
So, if you’re looking to service the growing need for legally grown marijuana, consider the use of a modular grow room. It’s something that can grow with your business, as you grow into prosperity!
