I find that getting starter plants(seeds take longer)and putting like plants together you can get quicker and better results.



You need to figure out what you would like to grow and where then do a little research on which would do best under what conditions.



Long before they are needed in the spaghetti :-D

OK, I will avoid the temptation to tease, since everyone else has done such a good job (snicker). If you know what you want to grow, I could probably tell you something about how to go about it. I've been gardening since I was a wee child and have two green thumbs and two green big toes. I am very fortunate that plants seem to really like me and respond well to my care plus I was started out very young in learning the proper care and cultivation of everything from pumpkins to african violets :-D But, admittedly, I am still learning - hortoculture is a life long study.

Around my neck of the woods people usually plant their herbs where the authorities can't find them. :lol: Just joking I don't want to promote anything illegal. ;)

Heh heh, we just had a HUUUUUGE bust about four blocks from my apartment. They carried out gigantic garbage bags, filled with the stuff. They also identified the 'garden' and uprooted something like five hundred individual plants.



Score one for the good guys.



I have nothing against the adults who use the stuff recreationally. It's the jerks that sell it to kids that I don't like.

You know what's so funny about this is that in Iowa, where my husband's family roots are, the stuff grows wild all over the farms in the area, like a weed - pun intented :P There a pictures of his adoptive father and his uncle standing there under these huge plants with big silly grins on their faces. The authorities out there will occassionally burn off a few acres that isn't currently in corn to control it.

What's even funnier, is that, though I have never personally used it, I really don't understand how the stuff is banned anyway. We are allowed to drink ourselves into rages (I never met a mean pot head yet) and drink ourselves into such an altered state that we murder innocent people while driving and are too out of our minds to even remember doing it when we wake up in the hospital the next morning. But we aren't allowed to grow and smoke an herb with proven medicinal qualities...

(Note: the use of we is not to imply that I or anyone else here does the above things, it is a generalization about our society as a whole.)

Stormy,



I agree. I don't see how they can outlaw something that grows wild in nature. It also has less impairments than drinking. out here you can get a medical prescription for the stuff.



Hey ever notice that when the authorities burn a crop they all stand down wind with stupid smiles on their faces :lol: 8-) :lol:

Go figure, They just nabbed it from some other poor slob with the intention of destroying it why not get a little happy :-D it's going to "waste" anyway! bad pun, really bad pun!!!!



Good point though if we can drink till we can't see and it causes so many problems(health,public safety) Why can't a person (not me anymore [-X ) light it up if they want?



nuff from me on this one!

Well i kinda agree with stormy but not completely.



Even if it is all natural, growing in our wonderful mother earth does not mean its good for you. There are poisonous berries out there no pot head would touch, its just common sense. And Weed is bad for your body but it has good effects to so its just which one weighs out the other.



And even if you can get it by prescription in some states doesn't mean that its ok either. There are a lot of prescription meds that people OD on. We have a drug policy at work that includes stuff about prescription drugs. it states not to take somebody elses meds, and dont take out dated meds even if they were prescribed to you. Like i had some viccaden a year ago for an absess in my tooth. I didn't take all of it. One day my knee was bothering me really bad and i wanted to take my left over pills but thats not a good idea either. And if you are on some RX meds and you drive.... that can be bad too if they make you sleep or waht not...



So its about 50/50 with me.



Ok enough preaching.

blessed be

Definately true about there being poisonous goodies from the earth - look at the beautiful narcissus which are so poisonous that if you drink the water which you have had the cut flowers in it can kill you or make you wish you were dead...

As with all things, common sense must be used. I actually don't really condone it as a purely recreational drug because it does have it's adverse affects as well as it's benefical medicinal ones. I just think that it's less dangerous overall than alchol.

As for your works special RX drug advice - I personally could never live by it. Having worked for a short time in a distribution hub pharmacy, I learned a good deal about the "truths" about RX and OTC meds. A lot of what they tell the public is based on two things: most people are not all that bright and they don't want them hurting themselves or not seeing the doctor when it's actually necessary, then trying to sue the drug provider and they aren't going to make as much money as they could if they tell you that it's OK to keep your pain killer script for 1 to 2 years because you aren't going to go to the doctor to get a new one if you've got enough to ease you over the bad couple of days of a sprain. Basically, they've got those "rules" because of the lack of common sense.

Myself - we had a good many years when we were starting out when the money was super tight and there was no health insurance. I've set my own broken toes, fingers and hand and given myself stitches because I couldn't afford to see a doctor. We've used medications that family members had scripts for and hadn't used up. I had enough knowledge in such things and access to friends and family members who were RN's and Interns to know that in those instances I was able to "do it myself" without fear of serious problems, but most people can't make those judgements safely and therefore the public service announcements about seeing your doctor and not using other's medications.
