    Can you site your source? The only number I can find is here https://www.opb.org/news/article/oregon-medical-marijuana-growers-fines/

    "That means only about 300 of the state’s 1,900 registered growers have been telling officials how much cannabis they have on hand."

    If you just look at patients to growers or producers, Oregon has about 31 patients per producer and Oklahoma has about 39 patients per grower.

    Oregon has a glut of pot on the market (over a 6 year supply sitting on shelves) and is looking to revamp their licensing to restrict the number of growers. Doesn't look like we are far behind them.

    A guy at work is making more by selling directly to the dispensary and avoiding the 80/20 split the processor wants.

    When the money gets right the Fed will step in. At $60 per ounce bud isn't attractive to our blotted Government.

    This is exactly why i have pulled back on the idea. Simple supply and demand issue. Oklahoma is following in Oregon's footsteps and many of OR's growers have to sell across state lines in the black market to turn a profit and that's just not worth it to me. I have heard of several people making big money but long term looks sketchy at best.

    I don't see how they will stay in business if permit holders can possess six mature marijuana plants.

    could be convenance, reliability or both. Sales must increase for the fed to care.

    Got a neighbor that's a grower, a processor and his dispensary is now open for business. The traffic to his house hasn't waned one bit. :pissed:

    That’s sucks, hate to hear it. I take it, the zoning allows a business?
