Hi Trumpy smile

Apparently recent legislation here is fueling a lot of biz potential.

Biz-people are considering grow room facilities to sell to the pharmaceutical companies. I'm hearing all manner of stories , but the most intruiging is some process where they take out the THC ,for a drug that makes cancer patients comfortable w/o the high.

While my knowlegde of it all may be no more than old Cheech & Chong movies, some serious entreprenuers are flocking to my state , and are wanting the trades services.

I can recal a similar influx some 20 yrs ago, when my state was the first to acknowledge civil unions , we became flooded with gays overnight , gays that had $$$ looking to gain residence to take advantage of legislation

Did a lot of biz then, could do a lot now

Guess i'm just not proud when i'm hungry

My plumbing contractor friend currently has a job plumbing (mostly floor drains, all legal btw).a warehouse-size extraction facility.
They extract the CBD (totally harmless) from the THC (the psychoative component).
CBD as well as for making cancer patients undergoing treatments comfortable, decrease nausea and to stimulate appetite, is used to treat epilepsy (virtually stops the seizures) and for general pain relief.
So far the company has paid more than $50,000 in various permit fees alone.

He's referring to a 400 amp/320amp continuous, residential service @ 120/240V single Ø

I'm obviously going to go thru a learn curve here, wonder if any special permitting is needed?

Guess i'll have to ask....

I can just imagine my ahj's 'you're wiring what?' response

Plenty of permitting is involved with State, County, and City authorities all involved.
Background checks are required for owners etc...... all in all, they spent a year and a half obtaining the preliminary permits required (just to get approval to do what they are doing) before submitting for the building permits.

Electure:

TY for explaining the 400/320! That’s a bad habit I have, thinking everyone knows what I’m talking about
.
I’m sure the permit process that will be required before the Construction Office permits will take time here. Hey, it’s New Jersey!! I heard the medical dispensery one town over was almost 2 years for State approvals.
