I have wintered both hybid standards and old world antique roses in Denver using both outdoor sheltered daytime and grow bulb greenhouse conditions in the dead of winter keeping plants semi- dormant all while still very much maintaing full bloom(outdoors in Denver winter) moving plants in and out of doors. The key here is getting plants started regardless of phylum under warm still growing contions than allow time and energy for a significant acclimation process( simply moving potted plants aound). When weather is too cold for your plants( most of the winter) either invest in a greenhouse or design a grow closet. The biggest challenge I have experienced with gardening here in Colorado is the wind and the lack of humidity. Many plants hate the dry heated air of winter so keep them away from open registers. Right now in February you can start some bedding plants or veggies in a south facing windows, for added growth it goes without saying, employ a humidifier.Of course light is critical. For starting seedlings..Philips makes an Acro grow bulb 120 watts for five bucks at Home Depot that have offered decent results even compared to very expensive grow kit bulbs. Try cutting the tops off of galon size milk cartons(fill them with hot water and place them next to the window)you will often see lifeless plants immediatly respond and straighten out their contour.
On the subject of clones and mmj; it's so easy to get a mmj license here in the state. About all you need to do is pay one of the many doctors who often even own the dispensary next door and even the building they are in ( bettcha didn't know that) tell the MD you have a pain in your lower serendipity or your Nascar is hurting and feels out of alignment..within days you will have access to the best seeds, clones, weed, hash whatever. I am loosly related to the mmj industry and have been around it since their inception. Though I have been around every type of weed cultivation practically all my life(it comes with living in Boulder all those years)lol I only tried growing pot once when I was 13 but mom quickly put a stop to that and grounded me and my operation. Today it's mainly tropicals and roses though I have had years of experience growing veggies,flowers in the Rockies.

I was curious since you asked 5 second search on YT and there are a ton of videos on how to grow if that's your fortee. Consider this as a businessperson, regardless of product, it's supply and demand. In case you didn't know, I have 2 friends with MMJ cards there are a ton of supply in Denver Metro.

I think it's unrealistic to invest in land for mj cultivation based on an expectation of profit potential. Still, it's legal now and if you want to give it a shot, no one is going to stop you. I'd rather plant tomatos.
Not true price is low. Back in the day 90's high quality 1/8 ounce weed in Nor Cal was $40-50. My buddy brags with his MMJ card he can go to place on Colfax and buy high quality for $25 1/8 there is already too much supply by those numbers.

My wife tried growing tomatoes and no dice and she has quite the green thumb
