Naw it wasn't me; I didn't even hear about it. Got a link?
I don't think the gov't is too interested in my 2-dozen plant legal med-mj garden.
The gov't always exaggerates.
The dea assigns a value of $3,000.00 to any plant, even a 2" seedling.
I remember a few years back I read a news story about a multi-million $$ outdoor grow bust where they listed the acreage and plants involved. My friend (who has 2 degree's in math from MIT and Cal Tech btw) did the math and if the pigs were truthful that means there would have been 3 plants per sq/ft.
As an experienced cultivator of no little renown, I can assure you if you have 3 plants per sq/ft outside you ain't gonna get much out of them.
However, if there were a law against looking at free internet porn, they'd lock me up and throw away the key.
