    Ben - I love your enthusiasm and never ending support for the subject, and I agree with you more often than not.

    However, your optimistic assessment on what is involved in growing pot is rather removed from the reality.

    While you may very well be able to "grow yer own" in a plot in the backyard, and envision a day when that is how we all do it, the reality is that you cannot
    "cheaply and easily" grow medical quality pot, and to continue to minimize the efforts required, really does not help in the ending of false propaganda from either side of the issue.

      long enough ago that the Statute of limitations has expired.
      Sorry if that experience doesn't fit with the narrative offered by the top dollar hustle.

        Things have changed a lot since the sixties, my friend.

        I've been a self providing patient and member of a collective for seven years. I haven't been able to work for 2 1/2 years because of a long term back problem, and I can barely cover my electric bill. There ain't nothing for me but a lot of hard work, because I have no choice. I guarantee you I'm not banking bucks and driving a new BMW.

        Like I said...for someone that claims to be a pro-pot activist, you sure are tossing about a lot of accusatory issues of profit and mis-information that serve no purpose but to continue promoting raids against legitimate growers and providers.

        Think about it.

          and the Statute of Limitations is 7 years.

          I've grown both indoors and out.

          Not all strains work well outdoors here, but those that do, work just fine. The others mature too late, so we get big plants with very small buds.
