Although it is not a common career goal for most, there is a large community of people who venture off to a farm to grow marijuana at a young age.
There is a lot of money to be made in the marijuana growing industry, and young, adventurous people are taking advantage of it! For a typical season, farmers can make nearly an average years salary for a few months of hard labor.
Many of the people who choose to do this kind of work will be provided with housing and food while the are working on the farm. There are disadvantages to this kind of work. Most of the time, the living conditions are less than ideal. I have heard of people having to live in a loft in a barn with several other people. The idea of this type of living might deter people from wanting to grow pot. Also, it is common for farmers on a pot farm to have to work long hours with little to no human interaction. There is not much excitement on the pot farm, and that can be difficult for some people to adjust to. Job security is also a concern. If the farm is not successful, the farmers might not get paid for the work or be asked to return for another season. Although a good season can bring in a lot of money in a short period of time, it is not for everyone. People who are considering this need to think long and hard about this decision. People who are fine with growing marijunana for a few months should just go for it!
