    Agreed. I figured there was something about the climate/soil etc that made humboldt so attractive to all those dirt bag growers, but now it will be grown most everywhere, and taxed

    They even said in the show that unlike the napa Valley, where the soil and climate are needed to make the wine, that there is nothing special about growing weed in Humboldt. The only reason it's thrived there is the tough terrain for law enforcement, with huge trees to help hide it. I kinda wonder why it didn't take off in Appalachia, the home of doing illegal shit deep in the woods. Maybe too hard to hide there?

    I know some guysthat planted some cash crops on a tree farm in Georgia back in the 70s. They had harvested and replanted trees. Looked like the trees were pretty well established and not much maintanence was going on with them. Around Athens and Lexington.

    Tons of that goes on around here. Shots fired has happened but it certainly isn't overlooked by the police. Now every Canadian(adult) can grow four plants legally. I think that's pretty cool.

    Take all the crime out of pot...what a terrible idea.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Yeah. Only how many decades has it taken? How much wasted money and lives? Thanks politicians. Tricky Dick and Nelson Rockefeller were the guys who really got the ball rolling. A couple of fine upstanding politicians.
