They dont call it the conviction state for nothing. Seriously though, the state has been running a budget deficit for years. Seems they are reaching as usual for $ anyway possible. I'm not sure who would lay down that kind of coin for a non guarantee of anything.Im am a grower in CT and I am really hoping that I will be able to do it legally in CT some day. But as of right now the chances of that are not looking that good. I have an opportunity to move to Colorado and work for a very reputable seed bank out there and I might just have to take that opprotunity for now untill things start to change around here in CT. For those of you who were wondering about the prices to apply to grow, well here they are:
Initial Application Fee: $25,000 (Non-Refundable)
Registration Fee: $75,000 (Non-Refundable)
Renewal Fee: $75,000 (Non-Refundable)
The key words in all of this is non refundable. Who in their right mind would spend 25,000 on an initial application fee and 75000 on a registration fee If all that still doesn't even guarantee you to be able to grow legally. It is just crap that our state thinks they can make an insane amount of money based solely off of registration and renewal fee's.
