That's the lesson we learned with Colorado legalizing. If you can control the light spectrum (with LEDs) you can control the vegetative and flowering stages of your plants. No objection to light pipes for natural lighting when it's available. The main savings are in pest control and water conservation.

I'm always torn between enjoying what I have now in my youth vs preparing a good living for future me. Future me isn't guaranteed, and current me is quite capable of enjoying things.
I'm on a play-as-you-go plan.
Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin' to lose

"Incense And Peppermints"
