Growing plants generally is a peaceful and rewarding pursuit, particularly if its not on a huge scale, and like most here its just a home, hobby, horticulturalists interest, whether you are growing cannabis or chrysanthemums you are not some sort of evil denizen of your nation or state, you are simply a grower.
But these ridiculous and draconian laws and the main-stream-propaganda-media-mill that have for 80+ years elevated cannabis growers in the public eye to be some sort of evil-minded drug pushers that are denigrating the lives of others young and old thru their horticultural endeavors, which we all know just isn't so, and this was what the powers that be wanted everyone to believe so that they could instill fear into the worlds populace, and those that were willing and able to counter all that bull-crap were, and still are VERY BRAVE PEOPLE, some would even question their sanity for risking everything they have. Yes...directly risking their love, life and liberty, their homes, their family lives, their reputations, their professions their wealth and their health just to have the nerve and conviction to carry on regardless and GROW THEIR OWN CANNABIS, for themselves and for those that might need it for medicine or recreation.
Today, as we see the proverbial walls come down, and cannabis cultivation slowly but surely becoming a legal and almost revered pursuit in many parts of the globe, many new people have jumped on-board, and should be showing a bit of respect to the old-school mob that pioneered much of what we have today in the way of knowledge and genetic material for good cannabis cultivation, because the old growers had to operate (and many still do) under a veil of secrecy and intense paranoia, risking all to arrive at where we are in this day and age......and they all risked so much to be able to supply the needy and advance the sciences around cannabis cultivation. For many it was not about just making money, more about saving money when you don't have to go out and try and score low-quality and potentially poisonous 'erb from relatively unknown sources and at a huge price, and for so many of us it became a labour of love, and a way to conscientiously object against a corrupt and unfair system of laws designed to terrorize many generations.
So all you young and keen cannabis growers out there need to tip your hats to those that have gone before you, for without them we wouldn't have this website for a start, with all the knowledge and wisdom it contains, and so much more out there that has come about over the years thru the advancement of the cannabis counter-culture that I am very proud to be a member of for these past 45 years or so.
