Trunks

I'd imagine it's time consuming and if you were looking to sell it in high volumes you'd need to have a fair amount of space.




I went to uni with someone that rented two rooms in a house and other than his bed/wardrobe it was all plants lol

He did pretty well out of it.

One thing worth mentioning regarding misuse and side effects. Peter Hitchins of the Daily Mail is big on being anti-legalization. However, he also mentions how in several recent cases of people losing the plot and killing people (inc those in US schools) often as not the attacker is on anti-depressants.
 
It's easy, with just a quick search, to find a bunch of OTC and or prescribed drugs which when used properly and as intended can cause issues. When anti-depressants can CAUSE depression and or even enhance it and when you look at the issues of mental illness and how it's treated with LEGAL drugs you can see that the percentage of those who really ought not to use cannabis can easily be the same.
 
Then you've got the culture around illegal drug use. MT had a thread some years ago in which one member mentioned how his coke sniffing, weed smoking and pill popping weekend party mates looked down their noses at him injecting. Not H but roids. 'You use a syringe... you dirty druggy... sniff, sniff...'. Laughable in it's irony. We all know local scruffy 'Herberts' with their hoods up walking past us in the street puffing away on a joint only to moan about the 'feds' ''always giving me ****''. Well d'uh! If they smoke with mates (common among the younger chavs) the whole culture is anti this and that. Now those of you who have visited Amsterdam's famous cafe can tell us just how far away from the above their experience was.
 
Regarding the tax revenue use. It can be ring fenced to be used in specific ways. Money raised by TfL in London via fines is supposed to be used by the TfL on street only. So crossing patrols and the like. It can't be used to upgrade the mayors limo for example.

America and anti depressants is an irrelevance.
I've seen the same reports. But the issue is that, depending n source, somewhere between 35% and 50% of the population of the USA is on anti depressants at any given time.....let that figure set in. Over a third to half of the population.
So yeah.
There's always going to be a high likelihood of there being a correlation.

Crazy crazy country. The issues there are not just superficial or about gun ownership. It's much much deeper.

Also things like if you don't go through something and end up medicated, you can be prevented from doing many things like working (if you operate machinery, work in a public environment where you're responsible for any sort of supervision of others or even driving) yet guns are still ok to own. Lol.

Strange strange country.

But again, not really anything to do with anything else.

And smoking weed has no relevance to any medical study.

It's like saying smoking opium is a valid thing t do as the doctor once prescribed you codeine
