Aloha. Hawai’i island has been blessed with increased value since election night at midnight. That’s when the “Lowest Law Enforcement Priority of Cannabis Ordinance” went into effect in the Hawaii County Code.
Hawaii County Police Lt. Sam Thomas estimates that 24 legal marijuana plants could produce 24 pounds of finished product worth an estimated $4,000. per pound. That’s $96,000. Just using old-fashioned sunshine to grow the plants (without the aid of now-common, indoor lighting systems) means two crops per year, called ‘long season’ and ‘short season’, and $96,000. x 2 = $192,000. That’s per property, per year. If two adults live at home you can double that to $384,000. What’s not to like?
Of course, ‘sales’ of back yard Cannabis are not allowed under the new ordinance. Nevertheless, some of us call this natural economic system, “ganja-nomics”. Freedom + Cannabis = “ganja-nomics”. It’s Mother Nature’s old fashioned system for wealth grown from the ground; season after season after season. Hawai’i island voters approved this new system for ourselves by a majority of 53% to 46%.
