Oakland California leads the charge of the fight to legalize marijuana the city is on the -- of building a large scale pot production factory.
Several of them actually.
That could wipe -- the moment -- marijuana business.
-- clad chancellor of folks that I am -- university which is essentially.
A marijuana study universe to -- put it like that they'll -- joins us now from California -- thanks so much for joining me again we appreciate it.
Now I'm I'm right I got the story -- -- -- is considering industrial sized -- bombs.
Which would really put the mom and pop operations out of business is that how it -- Well you're partially correct Stuart.
What's happening is Oakland is in fact the first city in California to regulate large scale candidates cultivation for medical use.
However the next that is to regulate the medium size cultivation.
The small cultivation is still completely protected under the medical Canada's laws can.
But -- if you go to large scale production.
Can you give me giving ideas -- kind of volume that a large marijuana pot plant factory could -- now.
Well currently what we're looking at our four permit for these large scale cultivation.
And we're also bringing -- self regulation and control to the process.
As well as over a million dollars just in permitting fees alone.
What we're looking at here in Oakland does not just for Oakland dispensaries it's actually to supply it permitted dispensaries throughout -- -- -- I -- I could now look okay.
Each one of these big pot factories.
Could -- out how many ounces.
Well it's that difficult to measured in ounces let's say that there estimating 80% of the supply for Oakland -- so many many pounds per month at least yeah.
Can you maintain the TH C content of the marijuana if you increase the volume of production.
Well -- -- -- contents comes directly from bolt the variety or strain and also the method of production.
And by bringing this into a regulated market we can actually better control the quality.
Potency monitoring and also safety of the medicine just let me ask again how many pounds.
Could you produce in any one month in a big Paul.
Production facility just -- mr.
Well the reason it's difficult to measure that is because true leave the production is limited by the square footage and right now there's no limit to the square footage.
So you figure about a pound a light.
And if you have say fifty light she can do the math and then just scale it up from there so fifteen pounds a month for an operation with fifty of the.
The hall lights -- -- a patent actually it go would probably be about.
-- season so about three times a year three times and yet okay.
I'm trying to do the math in my head and I'll look in at least a million bucks a year from a moderate sized pop on production facilities -- right.
-- at least and quite frankly we're looking at bringing in more than that just per year to the city of Oakland in permitting fees alone can't.
Clay as -- clap books that I am university thanks so much for joining us appreciate it.
