Mom and Pop can grow pot

For beer drinkers, it’s hard to imagine a world without craft beer.

And it’s hard not idealize the image of a family operation making small batches of unique and lovingly-made high quality beer locally that gains a word-of-mouth global following.

When legalization was first announced in Canada, no mention was made as to who would be able to produce pot beyond larger organizations who could afford the time and cost associated with obtaining a producer’s license.

That’s why when the Canadian government proposed offering a micro-cultivation license for smaller growers, a new business opportunity appeared on the horizon.

This progressive direction could make a world of difference for rural communities who have agrarian roots but have experienced shrinking tobacco crop revenues. Maybe it will be a retired couple who wanted out of the city and to stay busy.

If you’re thinking about becoming a first mover in the micro-cultivation game, now would be a great time to tell the government how you want to operate.
