santadog: WeenerGord: santadog: No, it would not.santadog: Every hear of mites? Frost? Hail? Floods? Drought? Animals? Bugs? Birds? Thieves? Vandals?I can see how weed snobs getting paid BIG bucks for little measly one and two inch long buds would feel intimidated by that.Your ignorance to the industry shows.That is all.
WeenerGord: Plants are meant to grow under natural sunlight. Artificials can only try to replicate the natural outdoor habitat as much as possible. And if you like the taste of Bat Shiat, more power to you
WeenerGord: scottydoesntknow: Wait, that's right! Most americans pay for the convenience. Growing GOOD cannabis is a science, and most people don't have the time or motivation to dedicate to that.If it ever does become legal, some hippie liberal Johnny Cannabisseed would prolly throw free seeds down every ditch and embankment and public park in the country, and weed would be as free to all as dandelions are. Wouldn't that be nice?
WeenerGord: santadog: Your ignorance to the industry shows.That is all.Whatever, dude. I don't smoke that shiat at all, but I think it should be completely legal world wide. We are on the same side here, and just cos I think natural conditions are best for plants, you gotta pick a fight with me? Sounds like somebody is worried about losing their weed snob job.
radarlove: then it took years to grow that plant.
radarlove: JohnBigBootay: santadog: Guess what? When it's legal, paranoia goes away!!!Yeah, no. I'm not paranoid from the 5-0 necessarily. I just get all worried about everything on the strong sativas - also, can't sleep. So that's a no go. No problem - there's plenty of fine indicas luckily.I'm with ya- big indica guy here. Are you old? I've noticed most of us middle-aged-to-old folks prefer indicas, whereas the whippersnappers all like sativas.
WeenerGord: radarlove: then it took years to grow that plant.Cannabis is an annual, Donnie.

Are you old? I've noticed most of us middle-aged-to-old folks prefer indicas, whereas the whippersnappers all like sativas.Yeah. I am old. Not 50 old, but close enough. At any rate I'm voting for legalization for an odd reason - so I can reliably find weaker strains I like. Up in the PAC NW we've got some strooooooong buds. Some of them too strong for me as I've been a two toke chump for a quarter century and I'm cool with that.Also, there's lots and lots of folks out there who think they don't like weed because their singular experience wasn't positive - fact is if my first hit had been from a sativa plant I'd think I didn't like weed either. the weed world is a big one and it's 'high' time the average joe knew what he was buying instead of being forced to take the bag of the week with no idea what it is. Might get sativa (not too likely but still), might get indica, might get 3% THC, might get 20% thc.
Wasilla Hillbilly: santadog: Wasilla Hillbilly: What remains to be seen is how it would effective the prices. I suspect the high end stuff would remain about the same with huge influxes of lesser grade for very cheap. If a big enough difference, you might see alot more bubble hash and such around.Lived in Austin, Texas.. and now in Colorado. When I moved here in 2006, an ounce was the same price as in Austin for good quality bud (around $400). Now, I can get an ounce for $175.00 and it's better than the Texas variety. Prices didn't drop in Austin. We see a ton of hash here.Interesting. Don't know why but I find it surprising that it would go that low. I guess when people are willing to spend upwards of $20-30 a gram for the best available even in semi-decrim areas, I would expect sellers to find a way to exploit that even if fully legalized. There's always someone willing to pay top dollar for whatever is considered the best or trendy. Similar to champagne.
Strategeryz0r: Am I the only one who finds it funny that Mexico is basically saying that 3 states in the US account for THIRTY PERCENT of the pot the cartels send up?Way to represent Oregon/Washington/Colorado! USA! USA! USA!
radarlove: I like ya, WeenerGord, but you've gotta admit, there are people in this thread who know a lot more about growing pot than you do.
The Decider: By the way, if it does pass, I give it two years before Big Tobacco completely shuts down the small mom and pop sellers and has a monopoly on sales. I have a feeling they've been preparing for this for some time.
SirEattonHogg: If he ever had a pot brownie, he'd know the diff. It ain't that tasty. Luckily, I work for an industry that allows me to blaze or snort up. I don't partake, but nice to know I am not beholden to such restrictions.
CheatCommando: Phillip Morris and RJR probably have contingency plans in place in the event of legalization, and then the cartels will find how hard it is to compete with people who have the financial muscle to start wars.
you have pee hands: Grammatik Polizei: Mexican cartels get more cash from heroin and meth. I don't think legalized pot will cut into their take much.../drtfaThey get 40-50% of their total from pot from what I've read. They'll still be big orgs, but it would take a big bite out. And if some states legalize pot, and *gasp* nothing changes, maybe people will be more open to taking a look at our drug laws in a more general way.
santadog: Can I please tell you how it's really done even tho I have no experience?
WeenerGord: I don't need a PHD from Weed University to say that I think natural conditions are best for plants
WeenerGord: radarlove: I like ya, WeenerGord, but you've gotta admit, there are people in this thread who know a lot more about growing pot than you do.I don't need a PHD from Weed University to say that I think natural conditions are best for plants, and that it would be amusing if it grew everywhere like dandelions, which was all it took for the weed snobs to descend on me. You do what you have to do to keep it hidden, and keep profits up, and to brag on yourself and promote your mad skilz to keep profits up, I get it.Will your profits drop if it does become legal and can be grown outside everywhere?
HellRaisingHoosier: You still can't buy alcohol in Indiana on Sundays.
radarlove: you damn well better expect people with more experience to correct you
Grammatik Polizei: Mexican cartels get more cash from heroin and meth. I don't think legalized pot will cut into their take much.../drtfa
WeenerGord: radarlove: you damn well better expect people with more experience to correct youAll that I expect, is that no matter what you say on Fark, some assclown may pop up and troll you, and sure enough, it continues to happen.You sure are full of yourself. Where TF do you get all your imagined "experience"? Do you have a horticultural degree?
PJ-: Sure, you could throw a few seeds in the ground and hope for the best, but odds are
JohnBigBootay: SearchN: If you live in Colorado, yes./Just finished voting for legalization.Or Washington. Where it is polling ahead by a substantial margin.
AllUpInYa: My concern is that we'd be importing the fighting, terrorism and corruption that exists in Mexico. because of the drug trade.Cartel grow ops, trying to dominate the market; using whatever means to remove competition from the market.Is it a bit naive to think that if the borders are changed, that Cartels will give up their old ways?
SearchN: Yea just heard on the radio Washington and another (3rd) state are voting on it today as well, I just can't remember which. I am being optimistic about both Washington and Colorado. We try to pass something every cycle up here and we keep getting closer and closer. Really hoping it passes this time around, but it being an amendment to the state constitution has turned a lot of people off to it that otherwise are OK with legalization.
WeenerGord: PJ-: Sure, you could throw a few seeds in the ground and hope for the best, but odds areWhere are you getting your odds? You are making them up, aren't you? You haven't done a study of natural vs hidden greenhouse, you are just claiming that what you have to do is the best, then claiming that you are "educated" and superior. I think you are full of shiat.
SquiggsIN: We're telling you that you are uninformed, ignorant, and flat out wrong.
scottydoesntknow: It is trolling to ignore that correct information and contnue to talk out of your ass.
you have pee hands: HellRaisingHoosier: You still can't buy alcohol in Indiana on Sundays.Wow, you're worse than Pennsylvania. We couldn't buy alcohol on Sundays until a couple years ago, but eventually those sweet, sweet tax dollars won out.
WeenerGord: SquiggsIN: We're telling you that you are uninformed, ignorant, and flat out wrong.This from a clown who smokes an ounce of marijuana a day. Yeah, I'm gonna be all impressed by anything you have to say. (not)scottydoesntknow: It is trolling to ignore that correct information and contnue to talk out of your ass.You'd know You idiots are beginning to change my mind tho. Maybe marijuana should NOT be legalized. It makes people stupid.
baronvonzipper: Mexican pot grows in the Northwest is the main reason I hike in the woods openly armed. They are everywhere out here./know your producer
santadog: vudukungfu: santadog: I consume an ounce a month,That's. . . a lot.Soon you will have MASD telling you you're chronic.Just like if you drink more than one beer in a lifetime.It's not really. I'm a light weight in many circles./Spinal fusion L4/L5, chronic nerve pain.
inner ted: baronvonzipper: Mexican pot grows in the Northwest is the main reason I hike in the woods openly armed. They are everywhere out here./know your producerhmmi've considered carrying my heater when i go biking on trails around here, but just can't figure a way to do it that makes it at all accessible (backpack?? good luck getting to it in time --- some kind of holster on the bike frame ?? maybe i guess)though my reasoning is more for bears / other critters &/or the occasional Nam vet or just crazy people in the woodshaven't come across a grow op - unless i cruised right past it
radarlove: That's because due to its gigantic userbase, no matter what you say on Fark someone is bound to...Perfectly crommulant redacted... I find it to be very humbling to my supposed intelligence and experience.
