If everyone here grew their own like a true patriot should, then they wouldn't need to worry about finding a stash on the side of the road.

To stay on topic...I am sure this will be yet another reason as to why I need to re-new my medical license this year.

IMO, the truck was found abandoned on the side of the road because this is how they move the shipments incrementally along the highways. anon drives the truck a few hundred miles, parks it on the side of the road, keys in, goes on his way...next anon comes along starts her up and on his way...only the last person knows where it is gong and only the first person kows where it originated.

Also coul be a honey pot...you bust this one while we get by with these 10 or 20 or whatever...

my opinion...

i see only two possibilities.

1. the driver somehow got a tip its not all that entirely unthinkable cause i mean he coulda had a scanner and picked up a report for a possible rental van full of sweet sweet chronic. and if no scanner a cellphone call something maybe his drop off was made and he got a call to just abort.

2. the driver started to get a little nervous maybe started to question why he/she went to school and now there driving millions of dollars worth of pot across the state or maybe there wife or kids or next summers widespread panic tour was flashing before there eyes..... he bails the truck calls his guy and says you come get it but woops the cops get there first.

in any other situation i can come up with its just too much herb to leave sitting there.

I'll buy into that explanation.

* Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.

* Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, 'grown from the soil,' had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.

* Hemp called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.

Why then did it never get there... legally?

Because of William Randolph Hearst, the media tycoon, who also owned the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark and vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products and stood to lose billions because of hemp.



I can only say..... I did not know this.


Older now so don't touch the stuff, but from past experience and general perception, Hemp should never have become what it is today. One of the more milder drugs out there, and still gets the same ol' conditional bad rap.

With the 'semi-legalization' of hemp in certain areas, wouldn't it make since to try and approach the powers that be regarding the current benefits marijuana could offer society? There has to be enough evidence out there.

and khunmoon, excellent addition to you're already insightful thread.

Grailkeeper,
All the things you can make from hemp oil, you can make from mineral oils. To replace that you are up against the mightiest forces on this planet. That's why they invaded Iraq!

If you have read the link the snippet is from, you'll know Dupont (synthetics) and Hearst (wood-pulp) was behind the banning of marijuana, which effectively banned the cash-crop hemp. With very few people knowing they in fact were the same plant.

Only one thing can change this, education. Which we only can hope will lead to politicians who serves people and Gaia ...and not big corporations.

So yes, it is important to forward this information, to spread it to everybody we know.

I havn't smoked skunk for a few years though, as i'm in the army.


HOLY CRAP!


thats twice what it is here and for half as much! ($20 for 5g).

I guess the illegal immigration isnt all bad.

Actually, that's about the going rate for semi-high quality marijuana in the states SKUNK.

Xp, I'm willing to bet that the $20 for 2.5g is pretty seedy and dark green/brown.

To avoid a warn or getting b&, tr not to discuss personal use. Since we're dealing with cost of an illegal substance in the OP, general pricing may apply, but specifics to your personal experience can end up bad for you.

Peace

Anyone who lives in California, and purchases commercial, knows that this has already affected them, nevermind the prosecutions that have been going on for a while now.

I wonder how long before this affects the rest of the country?

remember too that their street price is probably 25 for a little crappy baggie and thats how they make claims like "we removed 150,000 street deals estimated at 20mil" (figures purely as example and not taken from original article)

they love to hype up the drug busts so ppl actually think theyre doing good.

Keep in mind that the authorities ALWAYS overestimate how much the haul was worth to make themselves look better.

They busted an illegal growing operation in SF a couple of years back. I saw what they were taking out of the house on the news. They said it was 9000 plants worth over $5 M. The plants weren't even developed yet, probably worth less than $250,000 all together.

If they say it was worth $20 Million, it was probably more along the lines of $500,000.

Depending on quality, street value is around $4000 a pound. Which means the truck probably had around 125 pounds in it, give or take.
