Getting Started Growing Medical Marijuana?
    #629117 - 06/23/12 06:21 PM (4 years, 5 months ago)

Are there any good sources or websites out there on the net about getting started growing MMJ? I'm looking for a detailed step-by-step procedure to grow 100% legally.

I did a quick search and found some simple explanations of what to expect for starting up a dispensary, but those just don't do it for me. :blush:

Quote:


  • Get legal!This is just common sense plain and simple.
  • Business Acumen. This can be a long process, for example, Marijuana dealers in Arizona and New Mexico must go through the state to obtain a license. They must also acquire tax stamps showing that they have paid the state tax requirements on all sales of marijuana. Enjoy the Process  .
  • Become a Patient. If you’re going to be in this field, your going to be around it so get yourself covered by Visiting a doctor, it’s easy. If you can, call around first to find one that will write you a script that will cover you for possessing more then the generally accepted legal limit if it’s possible. For example, if you live in California, you’re allowed to possess up to 6 mature and 12 immature plants in general but if a doctor recommends more then you’re allowed to possess more but never have more then 99 plants or 5 pounds because it brings federal charges.

  • Incorporate. There’s a specific order of steps you need to follow. You need to create a collective as a non-profit corporation first, before you can get your licenses and permits. It’s recommended you form a collective and not a cooperative. legalzoom.com or hire a lawyer to make sure the paper work is right so their are no questions on liability.

  • Sign a lease. You need to do this one last step before you can file for any licenses and permits. Why? The sellers permit and business license requires an address for your location; it’s no good anywhere else.

  • Obtain a License. Ok, your finally ready to file for licenses and permits. Don’t skip this step, medical marijuana transactions are taxable by law. Usually, An annual fee of $100 is required to become licensed to sell marijuana.

  • Pay Taxes. Tax stamps are $10 per every ounce you sell, don’t cut corners on this, pay your taxes, you will still be making money. All fees are payable to the Department of Revenue

  • Open up for business!Don’t skimp out on security, it’s improtant. At least one security camera is required. Follow the law and keep a low profile, no matter what you do it’s still a risk in this business, but it is good to know that you are helping people. Good luck!
  • Security. Watch your parking lot. Not enough people do and it leads to trouble. People loiter, roll up and sell bud to their friends and it makes you a target






I don't plan on going through with this anytime soon, but would like familiarize myself with the process.

Any tips from those who are already in the business would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Wow...um, growing marijuana isn't a step by step process.  There are a lot of variables every time you grow that need to be dealt with.


But to start you need to visit a doctor and present them with the illness/symptoms that you are experiencing to obtain your prescription.  Then you are going to send that in along with an application to your states department that deals with the MM cards and what not.


You should also buy this book and start reading and researching this site.

Heh, I didn't really mean specific step by step, I meant to ask what are the kinds of forms that would need to be filled out first. Like a form to become a patient, then a form to grow marijuana followed by one to sell to a dispensary.

As you can see, I really don't know where to start. :confused:

You're going to need to google your state and medical marijuana application.  And the doctor you go to will have information on that as well.
