Inside LA’s First Legal Indoor Pot Farm

LARCHMONT (CBSLA) — The first legal indoor pot farm in Los Angeles is now open for business.

The two owners — both Harvard-educated attorneys — said they have been working on this project for years. They currently cultivate marijuana for their company’s products including edibles and clothing.

Conrad Yun and James Chung invited cameras in as they opened the doors to the facility they hope will produce six or seven cycles of plants per year.

“It’s only the water and basic nutrients will nourish our plants,” Chung said. “Because we don’t have soil, the biggest pathogen for our plants is human contact.”

The duo is hoping to use what’s leftover from the plants to produce hemp plastics, papers and jeans.

“This is the first time we have a legal setting to try out all the science and technology,” Chung said.

Yun said the company is already vertically integrated with licenses for cultivation, manufacturing and distribution. In the next year, the company is hoping to acquire a license for delivery.

The company has to follow strict regulations in order to operate in Los Angeles and California.

    Just another transfer of wealth. The attorneys charge small players who founded the industry $100,000 to “attempt to get them a license” and here comes the Harvard attorneys who get the licenses. The LA City Attorney also went to Harvard, were these guys his frat house brothers? Across the country a disproportionate number of attorneys and wealthy business tycoons are getting licenses while the police still raid those without licenses who cannot afford the attorneys fees or taxes and they takes everything under “civil asset forfeiture” where all cash and often assets, cars, real estate are taken and “assumed” to be profits of drug dealing without any sort of trial. Yes cannabis growers are guilty until proven innocent in a court of law. Then the growers hire those same attorneys if they can afford them and pay them $100,000 to attempt to get back the cash and assets the police essentially stole from them without filing any criminal charges. Yes it is “100% legal” for them to take everything without filing charges and no trial so the search can even be an illegal search and 4th amendment violation. In the meantime the Sheriffs then sell the cannabis in the LA prison system and any prisoner who cuts into the Sheriffs drug dealing profits gets the crap beaten out of them and put into solitary confinement just like the LA Sheriffs did to the FBI undercover agent in the LA prisons a few years ago that resulted in criminal charges and conviction against Sheriff Lee Baca. Cannabis was a bad schedule I drug until the government and the attorneys found a way to transfer all of the profit to themselves, now it is a much safer alternative to opiates and the small players still lose everything. Anonymous for fear of police retaliation and brutality.

    This facility is nothing short of a joke. In the long term, there is no way it will survive once the larger LP’s currently operating in Canada gain access to the US market.

    For example, Aurora Cannabis (NYSE: ACB) will be producing 750,000 KG per year at a cost of approx. $1.00 per gram.

    This little flophouse has exactly zero chance of matching those numbers.
