It isn’t cheap or easy to start a marijuana growing business. It takes time and patience and perseverance. I thought it would be easy to grow weed, so I bought a huge farm in California. I planned to become the new kingpin in legal medical marijuana. I didn’t know anything about the laws and legal problems that I would face. I didn’t have the proper permits or licenses and the state came to my property and seized all of my plants and all of my assets one day. They put me in a police car and took me down to the station. I didn’t know who to call for help with the legal problems, but I used my one phone call to let my mom and dad know that I was in jail. They made a phone call to a lawyer that specializes in medical marijuana farming. The lawyer drove 3 hours to the jail so he could talk with me about my case. The first hour of the consultation was absolutely free, but my Mom and Dad paid $600 for the remaining 2 hours. The medical marijuana farming lawyer agreed to take my case and spoke to another consultant on my behalf. The lawyer worked out the terms of my release, but I had to give up everything on the farm including the gardening equipment and all of my supplies. I stayed out of jail, but I lost everything. If I would have used a consultant in the beginning, I might have been able to save my business from going down the drain.
