Kayla88 Posted October 1, 2012 Report Share Posted October 1, 2012 Hello, everyone! As you will probably know by reading this, I'm new to the site. My fiancee and I have been discussing for a month or two about the possibility of me getting my caregiver license. Honestly, the idea just randomly occurred to me as I was attempting to pay all of my bills with my sadly meager paycheck. Even though it was a sudden idea, I feel that it's for the right reasons (aside from supplementing income, of course). My great-grandpa was diagnosed with colon cancer and was given two months to live. He was wasting away because his appetite was gone, he was in heaps of pain, and his spark was gone. It was heartbreaking. Anyway, my grandma (bless her soul) got him started on smoking marijuana. Immediately, he got the munchies and ate his first full meal in ages. A sunnier disposition quickly followed when the marijuana alleviated his pain. He lived another year and a half in comfort before passing away in his sleep. This is what pushed me to truly believe in the qualities of medicinal marijuana. Anyway, I want to help other people like that and help with household bills. Seems like a good idea to me! However, I want to make sure that I do this the right way and 100% legal, as I'm in college for criminal justice. I have already checked into that, and there are a few dozen people with caregiver licenses involved in the CJ system in my town, so that won't be an issue. I would LOVE y'all if you would help me with these questions: How do I get started? My research shows no guidelines for obtaining seeds. Are there any special considerations with children in the home? I have an outbuilding I would use that can be heavily secured. What should I know about the environment the plants need to thrive? What materials should I plan on needing? What is the best way to learn with my license? I don't know how accepting a patient would be of sticking by me while I muddle through trial and error Besides materials, what are the up-front costs of becoming a caregiver? What is the best advice you can give a noob like me? Thank you so much in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
