How to turn California's despised deregulated industry into
California's favorite regulated substance.
Some Californian's might be shocked at their 250% or so higher than normal
energy bills, but none more than the indoor marijuana farmer, who had to pay
horrendous bills for this December growth cycle. Don't be suprised if your
next ounce is a little skimp.
Chronic farmers will have to hand out the big
bucks to keep the juice on, so says PG&E, whose new "fuck you twice" rates on
gas and electricity have caused much concern among the general public and news
media. It seems that a few years ago, the electric company was "deregulated"
which was supposed to increase competition among energy companies resulting in
lower pot prices. I mean, electricity prices. It did exactly the opposite,
with the price of running just a few dozen lightbulbs now costing over $1000,
when last year the same rig would have only guzzled $500 worth, or about two
ounces of power. The marketplace is going to feel the burn of these new prices
in the form of pinched eighths, barely a joint even for $20, and dime bags
being a thing of the past.
What can I do? Well, a better fan might help.
Not only does a new fan use less electricity than an old one, but it will help
save on lighting costs as plants can be kept in dangerously close proximity to
lights if there are cool enough fans around to prevent a fire from breaking
out. Also, be sure to plaster every inch of your grow area with reflective
mylar, even over the blocked windows and to the entrance of the fake wall. Grow
rows of small, shelfed plants instead of big ones in pots. Better yet,
consider investing in a hydro-tray cloning system to give bigger and better
yields for the same amount of electricity.
Ralph Nader even came and smoked
out about the whole energy crisis thing. In San Francisco, of all places,
where even finding a good attic to grow weed in costs thousands every month.
Ralph Nader has had weed farmer's back the whole time, advocating municipal
utility districts before the shit hit the fan with the electric prices. I
voted for Nader for president on this basis, as being the better for weed
president, not because I believe I'd get any more stoned from my weed, but
because he was/is the only candidate who's willing to say anything about
California's energy problem.
Just look at Gubner sore throat Grey Davis...
the man obviously doesn't smoke. I bet he wouldn't even get high if he did
smoke. He'd just demand more and claim he didn't feel it. Then, when you
broke out with the real bomb shit, like some good Humboldt outdoor, he'd cough
it up and claim it was too harsh. Don't all you democrats out there feel a
little bit uptight and out of touch now for voting this clown in? Next
time vote for Dan Hamburg, I bet he gets smoked up on the daily. I support
any and all of the Green Party schemes to lower the price of electricity and
bankrupt PG&E. Vote yes on the next Prop. 9-alike, we'll go halves on it this
