hemp has got to be one of the most useful crops in the world; food, clothes, fuel, paper. You can even make a house with hemp. I smoke weed every day too, but still, hemp is better.

Next to Herb (no pun), Josh is probably the best ref in the business. He should be given a medal for that stash. Man, who wouldn't wanna live in that warehouse...

Kinda annoyed that I had this posted first yesterday and this mod deletes my thread and makes it his own.

Well done sir.

Same with tobacco- do you know anyone who grows their own? I don't, and have never even really heard of it. Big corporations are always going to be able to streamline a process for mass production and sell cheaper than small-time manufacturers, much less someone growing in their backyard.
There's a big difference in brewing your own beer and tobacco It costs money to do both. Wanna grow your own tobacco? You're going to have to have the land to plant it, good soil, the correct season, the time, and the hard work of picking it, planting it, plowing it, then drying it out and everything else that goes along with preparing it either for smoking, dipping, or chewing.

As far as alcohol goes you're going to need all of that and more and it's simply not worth doing unless you are some kind of moon shiner or just really want to drink you're own alcohol.

Which is exactly what you said, i'm just using those points to contrast.

Weed is much different. It's easier to manage and grow and it's simple to pick. There's no processing, fermenting, and much less know how required to do it. If weed was legal 80% of the users would simply grow their own weed or buy it under market value from one of their friends that had a surplus.

Again, not saying anything is wrong with weed other than it being illegal. I'm only saying it being legalized does not mean that people will stop growing it/selling it. Surely not on the same scale as they do now.. but it will not be like tobacco nor beer in the same sense.

I take it you've never actually worked on a pot farm. I did two seasons on two different large-scale medical grow in Cali (FYI, a friend of mine used to take the better stuff out to Georgia to sell and they got nearly 4g's a pound for stuff that would have gone for 2400 here). There is a shit ton to know if you want to grow high quality weed, and no, its not cheap either (you need to buy fertilizers, rich soil, various treatments to combat insects, and thats assuming you dont want to do indoor or hydroponic) and it takes a lot of work, and in fact there is processing that goes into it- you can wreck a whole harvest if you don't cure properly. There are many books written on the topic.

Meanwhile, brewing beer isn't that hard, I have several friends who do it, micro and craft brews are a big deal out here. But they do it for the fun of the craft, not because it saves them any money. Same will be true of weed once big corporations jump into the mix.

Don't get me wrong, there will be people who grow scrawny shriveled little plants without spending much time or effort or money on them. And what they end up with will be mediocre to crappy. Most people will gladly take strong, cheaply priced weed from a store than settle for poor-quality stuff they grew themselves.

Well this is some shit.

I find it funny Rosenthal was probably making more stacks than half the fighters he reffed for.
