Medical is legal here in CA. My friends who have a state issued medical card can have eight plants. 
Properly cared for that yields 4 to 8 pounds of buds per year. Considerable amount.

We just have the papers from the state that says its ok and grow where ever.   

Its pretty easy.   Ya green houses and gardens many times have some growing by the tomatoes and squash.

Paso Robles CA is a Mecca of sorts for Winos  and the Wineries around here have outdoor smoking areas. 

The Organic food is also incredible and restaurants line every main st from here to wherever. 

Horribly decadent if you want my opinion.

… the news from my Home Front:




Consolidating and cashing in
on medical marijuana

By Joey Peters
May 8, 2015 3:00 pm

Marijuana legalization is likely far off in New Mexico, but you wouldn’t know it from the way some businesses are acting.

Recent news of a Canadian company’s encroachment into Santa Fe spawned backlash from those critical of an out-of-state, out-of-country company attempting to get a piece of New Mexicos’ medical marijuana industry.

Last month, Toronto-based Nutritional High announced that it would be acquiring 51 percent of shares from and assuming management operations of Sacred Garden, a Santa Fe nonprofit medical marijuana producer that’s been operating for nearly five years.

The plan drew immediate backlash from patient advocates and others in the industry.

“We don’t need the money that comes in the program going out of state, yet alone out of the country,” Tim Scott, president of New Mexico Cannabis Patients Alliance, told New Mexico Political Report.

The criticism even may have put speed bumps in front of the deal.

At one point, rumors abounded that the acquisition was falling through. In an interview with New Mexico Political Report earlier this week, Sacred Garden President Zeke Shortes acknowledged that the deal was experiencing “significant roadblocks.”

Quote
“You cannot buy or sell a [medical cannabis] producer,” he said. “But they’ve started creating management companies. A management company can come in and assume control.”

  ….. Others see a darker side to these kind of business relationships.

Josh McCurdy, a medical marijuana patient in Ruidoso, said he thinks the management trend is nothing more than businesses jockeying for when New Mexico eventually goes the route of Colorado and several other states.

They’re looking to gear up to go recreational,” McCurdy said. “That’s why everybody is consolidating and trying to be the bigger or better place, that way they can ride the wave.”

Quote
The goal, Posner said, is to create a national brand of edibles.

When looking to branch into New Mexico, his company became particularly interested in Sacred Garden’s growing and extraction process.

Nutritional High taking control of management will give Sacred Garden an influx of money to up its growing practices as the state expands the number of plants producers are allowed to grow. The increased money will also help Sacred Garden’s products keep their THC levels consistent—a problem with edibles in New Mexico and other states.

… Hey Oregon! Today is the BIG day!


"
Medical weed is legal in 23 states, but very of few of them have
licensed dispensaries. Oregon already has the second-highest
number of medical marijuana patients per capita in the
country, behind only Colorado.




This State Has More Marijuana Shops
Than Starbucks or McDonald's

Recreational weed in Oregon doesn't become legal until Wednesday,
but medical marijuana dispensaries outnumber sellers of
Big Macs and Frappuccinos


By Shane Dixon Kavanaugh on Jun 30, 2015

Starting Wednesday, adults in Oregon will be able to legally possess and consume marijuana.
But the state already has more ganja shops than Golden Arches or places to buy Grande Frappuccinos.

Here's how you take over America:

1)  Fool people into thinking we're the bastion of freedom by making homosexual marriage legal nationwide.

2)  Fool people into thinking we're free by making pot legal nationwide (even if it was 100% legal for even non-medical (recreational) use.

3)  Fully implement TPP (NO ONE WILL CARE because they will be giddy and completely captivated with their fake freedoms in 1 & 2.

Mission Accomplished for the global cybernetician technocrat feudalistic elites.

Watch the pot ad that got yanked off TV

~> WATCH: http://money.cnn.com/2015/07/21/smallbusiness/marijuana-tv-ad-colorado/index.html

The ad for Neos, a provider of cannabis oil and vaporizers, was planned to be shown on KMGH, an ABC affiliate in Denver, where marijuana is legal for medical and recreational use.
It went up in a puff of smoke.

... from @BUZZFEED, appropriately ... blacks are
being discriminated against in the 'legalized'
marijuana industry! Huh?


"The pot trade has long been open to anyone with some seeds and
some hustle, so there are more than enough cannabis experts out
there to form a truly diverse industry — if only the laws weren’t
systematically preventing thousands of qualified black people
from participating."


HOW BLACK PEOPLE ARE BEING
SHUT OUT OF AMERICA'S WEED BOOM

Amanda Chicago Lewis
Black Americans were disproportionately targeted in the “war on drugs.”
Now state laws and steep regulatory costs have left them far more
likely to be shut out of America’s profitable marijuana boom


When Colorado’s first medical marijuana dispensaries opened in 2009, Unique Henderson was psyched. He’d been smoking weed since he was 15, and he’d even learned how to grow, from his ex-girlfriend’s father. He spent $750 on classes about how to run a cannabis business, and then he and a friend both applied to work at a Denver pot shop.

Then only his friend was hired. Henderson was more than qualified, so why didn’t he get the gig? His friend asked the managers and came back with infuriating news: Henderson was not allowed to work in the legal cannabis industry because he had been caught twice with a joint’s worth of pot as a teenager back in Oklahoma, and as a result he has two drug possession felonies on his record.

Quote
By the mid-’90s, he had settled into the weed trade, buying from the Mexican cartels and shipping pounds all over the country. Over the years he stopped working with guys who were flashy, who liked to spend a lot at the club.

He stopped carrying a gun over a decade ago, and he won’t work with people who do. “Gun have only one purpose, and it’s to kill,” he said. “If you are in a very heated argument and you have a gun, you’ll shoot them, but if you don’t have a gun, the both of you go home.” He’s been living with the same woman for 10 years, and they have two children he hopes to put through Ivy League schools. He is sick of flinching every time he hears a siren or a helicopter.

A sign at the Oregon State Fairgrounds displays the dates for the Oregon Cannabis Growers' Fair in Salem, Ore.,
Friday, Aug. 12, 2016. In a sign of how mainstream the once-illicit marijuana industry is becoming in Oregon,

Oregon Cannabis Grower's Fair.
