Everything is a legal grow for the girlfriend and myself, both card holders and patients in need of medicine, F*&^ pharmaceuticals & pricey mmj dispensaries. I could be growing a couple more girls as well but I feel being a couple under is always better. We just started attempting to grow our own buds and the first indoor grow was pretty nice getting some of that first homegrown, the outdoor is a whole other story, free light!!! it is awesome here in cali, we get some killer light and nice weather depending on location. Spot on about cali economy, getting a job is tough, seems you have to know somebody to get a decent job nowadays. Colorado sounds killer.. would push you to do indoor year round which personally wouldn't bother me maybe it would when I see the elec bill HA! Thanks for droppin in' mrbubbles!!
What is your legal limit if you don't mind me asking? And that's a LOT of meds for 2 ppl lol. This is our first grow also. Both more recreational but also some undiagnosed medical needs as well. My wife and I go through about an OZ per month but that's buying vs growing so I'm expecting 2 to 3oz per mo between the two of us.
As far as electricity it's not too bad actually. Mine costs me about $50 per month. Of course thats only the one light but my setup isn't very eco friendly. Still at that cost I could easily get a 400% return on my investment at black market rates in my area lol Im just growing for personal use tho. Right now we spend about $400 per month buying so I figure ill be saving $350 a month.
