What's the cost of fraud. And which manufacturers' lights are going to match the yield of the HPS? And who's gonna guarantee that we got the right one, if everybody is willing to testify to the lies?
    initial cost of lights and fixtures
    bulbs
    cost of electricity
    aditional cost of ducts and fans plus the electricity
    Almost double water for HPS

    then figure yeild into it

    when asked for an opinion on legalization...

    "I don't think that will work. I mean, I hear the same debate. I hear it in my country. It is not likely to work. There is just too much money in it, and I don't think that—you can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped."

    I thought we were talking about 1000 watt bulbs ... try $70.00-100.00 x 9 I just looked up a nice Hortilux HX66785 1000-Watt Super HPS Spectrum Grow Bulb and found it at a mere 72 bucks
