So you're saying Mexican weed is substandard? Things must have changed since I was in my 20s.

Looks like subby "decriminalized" some right before posting.

No stems, no seeds that you don't need!

No farking way this will be allowed to happen, the cartels would never allow it to be legal.  It would be the end of their money.

Friends don't let friends smoke mexican shiat.

Wow, you have no idea how drug cartels work do you?

The cartels money is not selling weed in Mexico, just like coke is legal in Colombia, and dirt cheap, no one gives a shiat what you sell locally, it is all about the export price.

You know decriminalization still means not legal right? Also while a lot of money comes from weed, they sell hard drugs too. You might remember the Malcom in the Middle spinoff where the cartel is trying to control the meth trade in New Mexico.

You know, I used to be fully on board this substandard-mexican-weed thing.  I had smoked my way through enough of it to know.  But on my last trip down a few weeks back, a friend introduced me to some locally produced weed that was very, very good.  Just-a-dab'l-do-ya good.  Did it have a few seeds in it?  Yeah.  As a matter of fact, they're germinating in my greenhouse right now.

As a weed aficionado whose daily driver is a beautiful BC bud I hereby recant my earlier opinion that all Mexican weed is shiat.

Actually,

The funny thing is nowadays the cartels have seriously high quality grow ops in Colombia and Mexico, they have for at least the last 20 years.  Because that is where the money is.

So while there might have been a lot of Mexican/latin american dirt weed in the past, these days a ton of the "good shiat" is grown south of the border and then your local dealer just gives it a name and says it is from Cali or BC.

The majority  of ditch weed in the states is grown locally by rednecks.

Hahahaha, we almost simulposted it.

I was in Colombia and an American teacher was sitting in a bar bragging he was from Cali and was going on he had not smoked weed in South American yet, but it could not compare to what he was used to smoking.  So a Colombian pal of mine rolled a bone and we walked out front to smoke it, and three hits in he had to inside and sit down.

Weed is like anything else, all about the marketing.

I am an avid pot smoker. But decriminalization is the stupidest thing ever, especially for Mexico. Decriminalization just says we won't bust people for having it, it's still illegal to sell and illegal to grow; so the cartels will still control everything, there will still be violence to prevent competition, and illegal grows in rural areas with armed guards who shot anyone unfortunate enough to stumble upon them.

Lets just stop the stupidity and make it legal, allow regulated farmers to grow it, allow taxed stores to sell it and compete with each other, and get the gangs and cartels completely out of it.

It's likely a covert attempt at beautification in Mexico be greening up the ditches without any government expense.

I don't always decriminalization, but when I do, it's the wacky tobaccy.

You actually think the cartels in Mexico make their profits from selling weed in Mexico?

It would be a travesty to brick up some high-grade cannabis and smuggle it over the border.

It's not as if the Indica strains wouldn't grow down there, it's all economics.

I do.
The problem is, when they brick it for easy transport, the seeds release oils into the bale. Bad idea.

Not to rain on your parade, but you do realize that doesn't work most of the time and will rarely result in harvestable crop? There's a reason seed banks seel "feminized" seeds. If I had a nickel for every time I heard a high school or college kid say they were saving the seeds to plant, I could afford to start my own pro grow op.

Also, I know they can "sneak in" once in a great while, but hydro grown buds shouldn't have any seeds in them. At all. Seeds in high grade buds indicate that either the harvest was at the wrong time, or not much care was taken in the harvest process.

You'll likely get a bunch of bushy plants with the right shaped leaves on them but few (if any) buds. If you wanna grow, go get some legit seeds you are aware of the provenance of and you'll have much better results.

Good beer is readily available in virtually any store carrying alcohol in the US. If you pick pisswasser you have no room to complain. It's like walking past the water fountain, drinking out of the toilet and complaining that the water tastes like shiat.

I recognize that.  And I'm well aware of the provenance of the stuff I smoke daily.  It's hand crafted and cross bred for deliciousness by some of the most pot loving of soap dodgers in Vancouver.  I really don't expect to ever grow anything of their quality, and given the affordability, there isn't much incentive to either.

It's just been an awful long time since I've even seen seeds in pot that wasn't ditch weed, I thought i'd chuck em in some dirt and see.  You know- some of that ornamental pot. It was a bit of a novelty getting seedy weed that was actually quite a respectable smoke, it surprised me.

Agreed. If you've got a good supplier, you can get some decent weed there. My supplier had consistently good enough quality that I was able to move a kilo every 3 weeks or so, selling just by word of mouth and reputation.
The trick is to have the local cartel let you, then you really don't need to worry about la Policia.
