    Reason: Photoperiod. Pot is very slaved to the sun and needs precise light conditions to trigger flowering. Which means you have one outdoor grow window per area. For a plant that has a year round market. Heat, cold, excessive rain, deer, bunnies and other environmental factors make outdoor growing a little bit of a crap shoot. Fun, and when it all comes together it's freaking magical, but damned hard to control.

    Then add in that most of us don't dig on bugs (aphids and spider mites sure do love the weed, little fuckers) in our smoke and the case for indoor, year round weed production is made. For a serious connoisseur, outdoor grown rough ass weed is anathema. Sure, some people will smoke any damned thing, but the market for high quality, manicured, carefully indoor grown weed using organic nutes and sterile growth medium (as opposed to--hmmm, did I dump the used motor oil right near the pot patch or not?) is robust and will continue to be so.

      The only reason you don't see much cannaseur grade greenhouse is the legal environment. I've had my best results in a greenhouse - weight and quality and would grow in a greenhouse over indoors anyday, but the legal environment, even in Colorado, makes it tough.

      •  Greenhouse would be lovely... (1+ / 0-)

        But you'll still have to augment with lights over most of the year. Oregon has more area under greenhouses than any other state so we'll be ready. ;^D
