Has everybody gone insane? More regulation is not the answer. More corporate entities controlling the health needs of the public is not the answer. The problem is that a medicinally beneficial plant that grows like a weed has been outlawed to the point that people will grow it in their homes under energy-inefficient lights. Re-legalize cannabis so everybody can grow it outside, thus solving issues of fire safety, and the threat of "growrips." Andrew Brown Nanaimo - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
