This morning, one of Westword's two medical marijuana center reviewers kicked out a list of 10 reasons to grow your own MMJ. Here's a sample; click here for the full list.
10) To appreciate how hard your caregiver works.
Your first crop is practically guaranteed to fail. As an experienced gardener, I took on mine with the love of a farmer and the brain of a scarecrow — all straw. Too much advice from too many schools of thought led me to forge my own path. But when I accidentally left my greenhouse door shut, my emerald field of green, just five weeks out from harvest, was baked into oblivion. Kind bud has a steep learning curve.
7) To get bragging rights on Craigslist.
You know you want to get out there and show off your beautiful, homegrown bounty.
4) To piss off Chris Romer.
State Senator Romer spent the better part of the past year belittling the medical marijuana community, all while drafting rules to regulate the MMJ industry (translation: impose huge fees on dispensaries). You go around his expensive rules when you grow your own medicine, and there is nothing Romer can do about it.
