Default What kind of business would you call this?

As some know I will be moving to Colorado next month. Since I am an old fart, I do have some doubts about getting a job in Colorado, not many but some doubts.


As a back up plan I was thinking about doing SCADA programming for down time and production tracking. I just want to do the prints and programming not the install, and am not looking to do the " control end of SCADA" just production monitoring and data accusation part. So no machine control involved.


I would think of it in terms as a consultant/programmer.
I tried looking up license requirements but I don't see it as being EC since I will not be doing any hookups.
I don't see life safety an issue for insurance reasons, such as when I did PLC upgrades to machines.


What are your guys thoughts about license requirements and insurance.


Thanks
Harvey

So good I think it belongs on the private area of the forum.

If you agree maybe a little help from a moderator?

Deliver pot on horseback to the high country.

"PotHub" should be your DBA.

Make grow lights your side-line.

I was thinking about grow houses, recording temperatures, humidity and light.

Some of the bigger dispensaries do have some elaborate automation set ups i'm told.

If I recall right didn't you buy a place down south in El Paso county? If so I'm not sure if they allow grow ops down there yet, but I could be mistaken. Denver is where the big ops are located.

If you want to become a drug dealer, invest heavily in pot stocks. It will become legal nationwide down there; it’s only a matter of time. The medicinal thing is just a test run.

The next wave after that will be edibles.
