All cannabis is medicine- no exceptions. Not all cannabis is recreational, still it’s physically good for you unlike alcohol.


Scare tactic: ‘The industry is about smoking, vaping, edibles and CBD products. This particular grow operation is for flower only (getting high.) Show me some statistics please.’


It’s an unusual request considering you have nothing against cannabis, but I’m glad you asked. Would actual test results from my personal ‘flower’ suffice?


Grown locally, legally, and you cannot get high. CBD counteracts THC. Read the terpene profiles and you’ll find why they smell so good:

I imagine everyone knows someone who’s suffered with breast cancer. Eighty years of prohibition has made research impossible. Prohibitionist to blame maybe?

Denise, in case you didn't see my posting on water usage in a different thread, here is the gist. Using numbers from the publication "Marijuana Venture", which I assume is a industry publication, suggests that a Tier 2 plus a Tier 3 grow.... Read all

Carol- I would be a hypocrite to judge people, when I too use recourses.

It’s more about casting stones and glass houses, similar to publicly posting permit violations. Now that would open a can of anarchy!!

Denise, it's true that cannabis is good medicine for some problems, it has it's place. Growing a few plants in your family hoophouse out in the middle of nowhere, ok, growing thousands of plants next door to peoples homes is not. I drove by that.... Read all

Wow Denise. You've just made a whole bunch of assumptions about how often people flush their toilet, or shower, or where "the petitioners" live. You are throwing words out there that are based on nothing.

We are not.... Read all

Hi Julienne- I know you have a sincere and justifiable concern, but six gallons a day per plant as stated on the saynolopez website is only a SCARE TATIC. Good grief, they’re not aquatic plants!

I just find it hard to give much credence to.... Read all
