LED Lights Get Pot Growers’ Attention

Listen Now

Leo Hayes, of Pagosa Springs, never saw himself making money off marijuana. He has always loved plants. When he retired from an engineering career at Mitsubishi, he wanted to find a way to grow herbs in his high-altitude kitchen, even during the dark, cold winter months. So Hayes came up with a new kind of grow light that uses LEDs. The result, called Sonnylight, has medical marijuana growers knocking at his door. Hayes speaks with Ryan Warner.
