  15. Don't worry it sounds all negative but here are some positives before you start yelling at the government.
  16. - You can smoke without worry, respect the policies of where you'll be sparking up but remember you don't have to be anxious.
  17. - You can still learn a ton about the growth of pot plants even before they start budding, plus the application process doesn't sound to hard so i'd apply as soon as you start the initial growth so you'll be good to go.
  18. - We're creating jobs for people who've had the passion for growing but have been non-stop on edge because of it still being illegal. People will finally be able to chase there dream job way fucking easier!
  19. - More control on taking pot out of the shade, cutting out the scum bags who made it dangerous to obtain. Making it safer for all of us.
  20.  
  21. There are tons of positives as well, just give it a little thought.
