    or quality relying on an outdoor model, at least in California, and I think your costs would just be shifted versus minimized. I disagree that  in a medical and commercial context, that potency and genetic characteristics are a lesser consideration. One person, in good shape, growing enough in his back yard for light personal use, can make it work if you aren't too picky about the results.

    But a co-op is limited in the amount it can have on hand at any one time - if they were to stock up on enough to supply their full member base for a year, they would get shut down for non-compliance. The current system works because there is a constant flow of small amounts from a variety of different members and providers into the co-ops on a daily basis. That can only be accomplished thru indoor growth cycle methods. Nobody wants six month old buds when you can have something nice and fresh 10 days after harvest.

    Not everyone can or would grow their own, so the reality is what it is. Someone is going to be growing it all year around locally The only way to do that is inside.

    I agree the cost is too high, but I am trying to make the point about why, and whether it is a fair price considering the expense and effort required. You seem to think not...My experience suggests otherwise.

    But I think we are boring everyone else, so we will just have to agree to disagree, and keep fighting the good fight together.
