I offer consultation services on the design and operation of high-yield, environmentally-friendly facilities for the production of high grade cannabis for those who wish to minimize the error portion of the trial and error that is inherent in new ventures.


I can also help you with retrofitting existing facilities to maximize production and/or resolving issues within your existing system. I know where the “bottlenecks” in production might arise and how to forestall those challenges.


This consultation is based on 40+ years of involvement in the production and distribution of cannabis. I know more about its lighting requirements and how to fulfill them than all but a handful of other people on earth and they, except one, all have a string of letters after their names.


This knowledge includes a thorough understanding of the interaction of physics and organic chemistry in cannabiculture. I have quite a bit of knowledge about nutritional requirements and nutrient delivery systems. I am familiar with the construction requirements, including plumbing, wiring, security and HVAC as well as CO2 supplementation and dehumidification. This includes facilitating future expansion as needed.


No one knows everything about anything. Knowing my own limits, I also know who to go to for more information. I have working relationships with a wide range of experts in areas where we might need them. I also have superb contacts in the supply end of the industry. It is probable that with the same resources available to do so I can get what you need for significantly less than you can.


I have a number of ideas as to products which can be developed to maximize the return on investment realized from the proposed venture. I know how to minimize its destructive environmental impact. I know how to keep operating expenses as low as possible while also creating a team of employees with a strong esprit de corps.


You can get free advice all over the place. You can get good advice from me. Thanks to my journalism, political activism and the 40+ years I've been building a network of industry friends I know the politics of cannabis well enough to be fairly sure about where the industry stands in any given state. I understand the financial aspects of the nascent social cannabis industry well enough to give intelligent investment advice. It's not cheap but it's worth what I charge.

If you have questions and/or wish to discuss this further, feel free to contact me.
