Well damn, no wonder I find it so easy to like you, sounds like we had many similar experiences growing up in the same world since we're almost the same age. :smile:

I think you should include that the money's not bad either as part of your motivation. One because you can make a fair and comfortable earning while still offering some of the best prices on the market, and give away freebies on top of that. And because it's fair, nobody that's not independently wealthy is going to dedicate themselves to a thing and travel the world in pursuit of that, and not expect something out of it.

With all that's gone on lately alot of criticism has been cast on those making a living off marijuana prohibition. I feel there is a fine line to that which makes the difference like night and day. Some use marijuana prohibition to jack prices up sky high citing the risks of doing business as the justification. Like dealers for example selling ounces for $600. That's just flat out wrong. In the 70's growing up in the suburbs of the nations capital here in USA I was able to regularly buy ounces of the best quality weed for $35 and it was everywhere. Another good example are volcanos, there is nothing so hi-tech about their product that justifies a $700 price tag. Hell I can get a nice new big screen HD TV for less. Yet they can get that price because theirs is the best and can making smoking safer and healthier. People like that are clearly screwing the public because the opportunity exists. Some however, pass the opportunity to charge what they can in favor of charging what is fair and reasonable as their intent is to service their market because there is so little service instead of gouging it for the same reason. Given that there are distributors charging as much as 3 times as much for comparable genetics, it seems to me to be clear that you are on the side of the line that services the community.

Aww fuck Gypsy. I feel kindred connection to you. (little sob). I have spent 20 years thinking about all these things. Usually alone because most of of the truly empassioned and knowledgeble folks are understandably reclusive. I have lived in So. Cal most my life and smoked the best from up North since the mid-late 70's. I don't know if you can understand what is like to develop ideas about the efficacy of cannabis in isolation for 20 years (or a few more hehe) only to wake up one day and find all of you here in the ether we call internet? Home at last.

I share your vision and hopefully your initiative and resolve.
I wish to offer education and real science about the effects of use. I wish to form a body of knowledge around harm reduction and responsible use. I wish to change the local media image of "cannabis activist". I dont mean to disrespect anyone; however, every time I see our issues on the news, who do they show? The individual with the longest hair, most beads, least articulate "stoner" they can piss off. I love beads and long hair but let's face it, that image feeds into the political hype and stereotypes us. We need to change the image of who it is we are percieved as being. We need to show doctors, lawers, artists, teachers, engineers, janitors, fire fighters etc...
This is who I have found hidding here behind our silly handles; intelligent responsible people. I know it shouldn't be our job to make all who use cannabis responsible, but it should be our job to make sure we show responsible use.

I knew it! I just new it! I knew if I waited long enough I'd find another voice in the wilderness speaking my language. I've been saying for years growers have the power to change that stereotype by being careful to not live up to it and to point out to others that's just government propaganda much like Reefer Madness. I mean if you could create a special pair of glasses that let you look around you and see who uses and who doesn't you would be surprised at how many you don't know about. Many that don't likely would if it weren't for the laws. Some people choose to live and die by the law. They would accept it if it were legal. If marketed properly marijuana has the potential to not only replace alcohol as the government approved recreational drug but it would also be alot safer and if done in a none smoking form alot healthier.

Take a moment and imagine that the message of growing and sharing as spoken on sites like these continues to grow exponentially at the rate it's been growing, lets say another 15 years. That would be over a quarter of a century of steadily creating people sympathetic to the cause. Even greater though, Imagine you grow up in a world and let's say in your early 20's you find this site and start growing. That site is alive with activity and all the info you need and usually with multiple choices, is there for you in a snap, all you got to do is ask. You follow the advice, and grow safely, carefully buying the best products, ferts, soil, lights, etc. You also follow the advice to be low key, to not draw attention to yourself, be a good neighbor, a respected member of the community. Someone known to be responsible and contribute when appropriate and/or needed. Also a good employee, a steady wage earner and taxpayer, unless of course you are one of the unfortunate few who have something that legitimately disables you. You go out in front of your house in the morning and get your newspaper, take in a deep breath of fresh air, wave at a neighbor and life is good with your grow room hidden away from the world, it's a pain the trouble you have to go thru but by god it's worth it. This one day however, you go out and get your morning paper like usual, but this day you got those magic glasses in your pocket. You put them on and you look around, and you see the whole world around you is doing the exact same damn thing. Maybe on that day, we will wake up and change the laws. Because you know what? If everyone was doing it like that, companies making lights, quality soils and ferts, other related acessories, they would grow into corporate giants. That's what happens when 300 Million people use your products. Think how it would stimulate the economy and wipe out unemployment to suddenly add a bunch of corporations maybe as large as the car manufacturers to the mix and at the same time install a government taxed and regulated industry in place that would be likely larger then the alcohol and tobacco industries combined. Not to mention all the by products that could suddenly be added to the market.
