To be fair, it was a really big plant.

By the end of the fire, no one cared. I mean, have you ever really looked at a fire.

I am forced to assume the value of the grow was assessed by the police after the fire was successfully extinguished. Otherwise I'm left with the mental image of firefighters counting and weighing plants while the floor below them burns, which is also pretty silly.

That sure would buy a lot of fire trucks.

What a colossal waste.

Insert "news story" of firefighter being interviewed after the fire. I would do it but work comp + youtube + fark don't get along too well.

Let's just cut to the chase:

I wonder where they get their estimated value.

Never done drugs; but with the dollar as week as it is I assume that the amount was actually very little.

AbbeySomeone: I wonder where they get their estimated value.


From the way I understand it is that they don't go by the street value of a pound or an ounce. To maximize the police's seeming effectiveness and worth, they break it down into what it could potentially be worth. Meaning they break that pound they busted up into a zillion nickelbags. They know what the weight and cost of a nickel is and divide the total bust yield up into that many, carry the one, and voila.

Article comes with pic of what a million dollars worth of weed looks like...wow, that's a lot of weed
 
2013-04-24 11:06:13 AM
So what did they do with the $500,000 worth of marijuana?
 
2013-04-24 11:11:25 AM
Funyuns are friggin nasty... i dunno how anybody can eat those things.
 
2013-04-24 11:19:04 AM
Funny, I didn't know Funyons where kosher.  Wonder if there is kosher pot?

Is that $1 Million wholesale or retail? And just what is the mark-up on Reefer, anyway?

They probably gave the state police the $250,000 of illegal drugs.

In CA for topshelf, you're looking at $375 an oz (350-400 really) (Northern CA collectives)

direct prices from dealers who deal directly w/ growers (less overhead) are much better for top shelf ($200 oz on avg) BUT the consistency really sucks. Basically it's a crapshoot and not always top shelf.

Southern CA was actually more expensive for weed (the only thing that costs less up here :P) but ultimately the prices don't vary by THAT much.

As far as mark up and profit, it's very profitable for growers, but they're also taking on all the risks. Most have employees they apparently pay pretty well. At least up here anyway. Collectives are supposed to be non-profit, but I assume the owners and people running it are paying themselves pretty well or whatever. But the benefit to the buyer is consistent quality and ease/safety.

I get my weed delivered to my door like a goddamned pizza. :)

Do they take coupons? =)

Yeah, according to cop math, every pothead in America buys by the joint.

If you ask 'em, many rural firefighters will have a story about being asked not to put out a fire because someone's grow operation started it and they don't want it discovered.
I'll take that over dealing with a burning meth lab thankyouverymuch.
