Clark County Pot Farmer Almost Ready for Harvest

Written by Pat Boyle on May 13, 2014

Clark County’s first legal marijuana farmer is about a month away from harvesting his first crop. Brian Stroh at CannaMan Farms says he expects to harvest 500 pounds of pot this year, selling it for $1,500 to $3,000 dollars a pound. Stroh says the biggest challenge has been finding a location. He says there is no  infrastructure for this business. They don’t have banking or delivery services. He says those kind of things will have to be overcome in the next couple of years and says he knew that when he signed up.

His grow operation is indoors and says he’ll store the finished product in locked, steel shipping containers.Stroh has hired armed guards and security cameras and takes security very seriously.

Stroh figures he’ll invest as much as $200,000 to get the pot farm up and running. Stroh spent 19 years in the mortgage business before becoming a licenses marijuana grower. He says he grew up in Dufur, in dry land wheat country, and feels he’s getting back to his roots. His first batch of marijuana should be ready to harvest by mid June.

He says  his marijuana  farm is “something that’s on the forefront of a movement  that will result in legalization across the country.”
