That's pure retardation. Anyone that just plants and forgets is going to end up with dirt pot, period.

Sorry I don't have extensive experience growing pot.

I was simply trying to make a point, I'm sure your advance hydroponics system would be much better.

This thread is just stupid now.

Stupid enough for you to post in.

Legalizing and decriminalizing are fine ideas until you step back into the real world and try to figure out how some poor farmer is going to keep a bunch of shiftless potheads from stealing buds at 3:30 in the morning. If you make growing the good stuff legal in the US, you'd got to make shooting a piece of poo who is crop stealing legal as well IMHO.

i'm pretty sure it is....

Govt. grown, or govt regulated pot growth would result in massive economies of scale. Unless you're some hippie, you probably wouldn't be able to make an argument that it's better to grow yourself than to pick it up at the store. The cost savings wouldn't be that much, I'd assume, and the time commitment would be tedious.

Bottom line, how many people are bootlegging alcohol in today's society? Prohibition wasn't the answer with booze and it's not the answer with pot. Small time growers wouldn't be able to compete with large scale production. Less money going to organized crime, and more of it going to our government.

Every small town in SC has one...

Funny thing is that Moonshine is relative expensive now. 25 bucks for a Gallon or so I have been told. More expensive than some forms of legal liquor. I think people occasionally drink it just to say they are drinking shine.

There will always be people who grow their own just like there will always be people who make their own clothes, grow their own veggies, make their own beer, etc. But that doesn't change the fact that if it were legalized that farm grown & gov't regulated grass would far outsell any home grown schwag.

Its really a moot point though. No mainstream lawmaker will ever come out in favor of decriminalization at the federal level. Its political suicide.
