They claim it's only the smell of growing weed and not smoking weed. Still a bunch of narcs.

Smells like weed, wonder if I can get high smoking it?

what could possibly go wrong?

Encouraging people to snitch on their neighbors over a victimless crime is just what you'd expect from a police state.

But law enforcement agencies here say the attics and backrooms of some of these homes conceal illegal urban microfarms in which criminal gangs are cultivating marijuana for commercial sale.

What a colossal and idiotic waste of time, money, and resources. Legalize it you dumb farks, then where will the criminal enterprise get their money? If the war on drugs is a failure, and it is, then the war on pot is the biggest failure of all time. Pick a fight you can win morons.

Proud washington state resident. I'm not looking forward to seeing how the state can fark up good buds but... wait, yes, I am waiting for that. Still can't believe I'll be able to buy a joint from a state store, in hopefully less than a year.

Where can you get custom scratch and sniff cards made? I want some personalized sweaty balls cards.

How do they recreate the smell? Do I have to go somewhere in person or can I wipe my balls with a paper towel and send that in and they can extract smell dna or something?

I was living in Washington once. I was a foolish by proud Canadian pothead. My GF got me some local stuff and I was acting all cool and 'This'll be nothing, I'm Canadian and I smoke B.C. Bud and Manitoba Wheelchair, this shiat won't do much to me, I'll be good'.

Police are encouraging the British to step out of their homes, raise their nostrils aloft, and see if they catch the whiff of wrongdoing wafting from the next-door neighbors.

If you dont rat out your neighbor then you must hate merica the queen!

The peons will probably sniff better than the cops in Qeeeeeerbec who thought a skunk under someones porch was a major grow-op

/Or the cop who thinks hay in the vicinity of a vehicle stop is pot, so he forces an unlawful search.
//fogged up windows of the quiet neighbors? Well FFFFfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.
///And don't forget about the unlawful searches of homes with a thermal camera on the street. Nice shower/hotwater tank there, or should I say 'grow-op!!!!'.

Rishathra: And yet there are about 10 dozen physical and online stores in the UK that will sell you tents, lights, growing media, nutrients and everything else you need to grow pot in your home or garage dotted all over the UK whos products have no other use than the legally cultivation of pot  . Not to mention the countless stores that will sell you Marijuana seeds of every type and species all completely legally shipped directly to your home. The prohibition of Marijuana is utterly pointless and a bigger failure than the Volstead act and the only people who do not see it are the people who have the power to end it.


In college I got a sunburn in the middle of winter.  Turns out I had my grow lamp set up too close to my computer.  Ironically, it was just for regular, legal plants.  My roommate slept strange hours and liked the blinds closed, so my plants were dying for light.

There are two kinds of indoor weed growers in the UK. Normal people who grow a couple of plants for personal use and sale, and organised professionals who rent a house, fill it top to bottom with as much weed as they can and force an illegal immigrant to look after it. I think the latter can be pretty accurately described as "gangs".

I always wanted to buy a bottle of this: http://www.saveonscents.com/product_info.php/cPath/291_295_418/produc t s_id/202580   and dump it right outside police headquarters for fun.   Watch all of them go crazy trying to find the supposed weed.   The reviews say it's not all that realistic, but I don't think our uniformed friends would be able to tell the difference; unless they smoked it themselves.

Seriously, does anyone NOT know what weed smells like?  If you went to public school, ever attended a rock concert or smelled your middle school art teacher's jacket, you know damned well what it smells like, and it's rather unmistakable.

/not to mention a safer drug than alcohol or nicotine.

Fair enough, but the second type appears to be outside the scope of the search as presented in the article by an order of magnitude. Of course it could just be a poorly worded article giving that impression.

Heh. I'm old and I've been around the block a few times and I must say that I've had some of the finest the planet has to offer - and probably too often. But the indoor stuff this state has is as good as there is anywhere in the world. I chalk that up to liberal politics and the marriage of plentiful hippies with plentiful scientists. The medical weed bills brought the talented growers out of the closet. the full on decriminalization for recreational use will introduce these botanical artists to the rest of world. Outdoors is outdoors and weather is weather but location means nothing anymore. Anyone with a basement and some lighyts and a little knowledge can grow great weed anymore.

Heh. I smoked a lot of 'weed' in alabama as a kid... and I didn't know what it smelled like based on my experience with that glorified hay. I've had some in mexico and the southeastern US that would barely qualify as cannabis at all. I bet it would even make shiatty rope - not worth the trouble.

Seriously, it's right out of some Orwellian tale.

So is making growing certain things illegal, but we're all used to that by now.

Well, looking at what's written on the actual card the police sent out, I got the opposite impression. Blacked out windows, constant buzz of ventilation, constant lighting day and night, lots of cables... These aren't really things that would be noticeable unless it was a pretty serious operation. And from what I know, the police over here don't really like to waste their time on users and small time dealers.

I'd actually like one of these cards....

See - I have a reasonable amount of disposable income but I moved from CO (very weed friendly) to the EU (not England, but close).  I'm old enough that weed isn't something people openly talk about, and I'm married so I don't 'go out' and make friends with drunk people who might pull out a joint.

I really just want to find a nice drug dealer who will sell me weed and not stab me or turn me in to the police.

So, you live in the EU. Make a little trip to amsterdam, buy some seeds, go back to your home country and buy some lights n stuff (read up on the net or something, there is a good book by cervantes called the marijuana bible, it`s a good start) and be the dealer you hope to find in the world...

/just for yourself of course.
