herby Posted November 9, 2014 Report Share Posted November 9, 2014 Just thought i would see if anyone else is in the same kind boat as me. I dont think ive ever posted here explaining what brought me into the world of growing cannabis. Long story short i have close family members who for years have been using it for medicinal purpose, some who have been caught buying and in possession of it and have done jail time for it too, These are genuinely sick people, some of which are terminally ill, These are the people who brought me into the world of growing and i do give most of my grow away for free.Ive only been growing since about mid this year and i feel its not only helped me and my family but its also turned into a great hobby which i would love to do on a much bigger scale, However the feeling of knowing you could potentially end up in prison at any moment is rather stressful. Anyway! I have noticed that this year alot of good things have gone into motion in terms of medical cannabis being approved for trials in some states and i hope it all goes well. If there comes a day when it gets fully approved i would love to start growing properly, with a shopfront and with real patients, I know ALOT of you probably have the same idea, i even have a business name already registered and a business plan of sorts which a few friends have helped me write up, as i can see it being both a good way to help people with a genuine illness but also a great way to make a living.Im wondering how the whole "dispensary" thing would work in Australia if it does get approved? would we need some kind of qualifications that allow us to do it? Does the owner of the shop have to have a medical license to issue the medicine ? once approved, are we even going to be allowed to grow and issue it our selves or will the big medical companies take over? do you think we will ever get to the same point as certain american states where the dispensaries are just like shops where you walk in buy it I have seen the way the MASSIVE companies in America are producing it, running in extremely huge complexes and cramming thousands of plants in 1 room in what looks to be a typical SOG method, There are full hazmat style suits involved with the production and it all looks very clinical, To me this isnt the way it should be handled, it looks and feels disgusting.Opinions?
