    • On January 16, 2011, by invient - This does not solve the "problem"... as long as there is a demand, then there will be a supply, and the governments efforts are futile and a plain waste of tax payer dollars.... legalize it, regulate it, control it... this plant is just too beneficial to humans, for it to be illegal to grow and use is the true crime... I wish my major was chem/biochem so I may be able to genetically modify soy and corn to have the CBD/THC genes and then randomly sow the seed everywhere until it mixes with the general population.... hey maybe I could get the patent on it and sue everyone that happens to have it growing on their field and make a ton of cash... monsanto did it!
