So according to Business Insider ( http://www.businessinsider.com/legal-marijuana-job-creation-projections-2017-3) , legal marijuana manufacturing is on pace to overtake other non-pot related manufacturing job creation by 2020 (the Year of Hindsight).
Here’s the thing, as great as that is (which, depending who you talk to, it is), I think ALL hydroponic growth and production should be in the forefront of our job creation goals.
Seeing as how Immortan Don is using the White House to bulldoze the planet, there’s a chance that 2020 might be a post-apocalyptic society. It will be the year that shows up on tv screens during all future movies discussing “the fall of it all”.
So fast forward a handful of years, we’re all living in bunkers and growing our own food. It’s difficult to grow steak. Anyone who has ever tried to plant a cow knows what I’m talking about. But fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, medicine, & a little bit of self-worth can be grown hydroponically. So we need to be focusing our efforts on learning the masses about the basics and benefits of growing their own food.
“Marijuana” isn’t a dirty word. “Hydroponics” isn’t a dirty word. Unless you say it with a messy mouthful of spaghetti and you spatter little specks of red sauce all over your date’s pretty little summer dress. Why is your date wearing a pretty little summer dress? I don’t know. That’s his choice. Let him do what he wants. No judgment here.
But hydroponics doesn’t mean that you have to grow pot. Yes, once the apocalypse hits, pot will be beneficial because smoking it will help ease the stress of the world being over. There’s also a chance that its medicinal benefits could help lessen the pain of your nuclear body mutations.
But for years, there have been giant indoor tomato and lettuce and whatnot gardens. And believe me, Whatnot is tough to grow.
The more self-reliant we are, the better chance of survival we have.
So check out your local library (Google with a roof), visit your friendly neighborhood hydroponics stores, and research businesses like Complete Hydroponics who design and make plant nutrients. Plant nutrients are extremely important to the growth process. It’s like singing to your flowers, but more scientific and with less chance of copyright infringement.
Climate change won’t go away. But we WILL go away unless we learn how to take care of ourselves.
Just don’t use your tomatoes for Clamato juice. “Clamato” is Latin for “Go fuck yourself”.
And if somehow the world doesn’t end (beware the robots!), then at least you can save some money at the grocery store by growing your own whatnots.
And that saved money can then be sent to me for rescuing you from the evils of Clamato…
