What do you mean, SPARC never left!  They've always been well suited to their market.  Granted, x86 got ahead of them for a bit, but, the T5's performance with encrypted .... oh...

The most overarching challenge many pot farmers face is inventory management. Growers in Colorado are required to track all parts of all plants (even the compost) from seed to sale. They have to be able to show that all parts of all the plants they've handled have moved through legal channels and that no buds or cuttings (which could be used to clone plants) were passed on to the black market. Yet because marijuana is sold by weight and becomes lighter due to evaporation (even after it has been dried), keeping precise track of inventory poses a real challenge.

Maybe a scalable processor architecture would be powerful enough to enable them to keep track.

Firefly Vaporizer, $260.00. (Plus all sorts of battery packs, chargers, cleaners, etc.)

Any old pipe, tinfoil rolled into makeshift pipe, apple with holes made into pipe: mostly free.

Firefly Vape = hipster gear. Everything else? Stoner gear?
