    Yeah, the foliage is real nice.

    Well there is a place in the states that sells the seeds to this plant, and I didn't realize they were so cheap. The site said 50 seeds for like 4 bucks. Gawd I am with ya on that one!! Eventhough the part your thinking about are literaly the flower buds, and even those are awsome to look at. Bruce I'm of the mind set that anything can be bad for you at some levels. Ever heard of the guy that died from drinking to much water He died after a fraternaty rush where they had him drink water instead of alcohol and he DIED from it. Diluted his blood so much that the heart couldn;t function because of the imbalance. So will I drink the tea? Probably not. I twould think it wouls taste awful, but that was a lagitmate use though. I really am into the odities, and though this looked odd enough.

    Jc I had no clue that the angel trumpet was a source for a narcautic. Interesting. I have always wanted one of those too, but shied away from them because they were $25 a plant most of the time and didn't think I wanted it that much. Would raher spend $25 on a chid or CP.

    Everything can be bad at some level, but Ma Huang turns deadly at unpredictable levels.

    Here's an interesting thing about marijuana - http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/ncnu02/v5-284.html - part of Purdue University's new crop series. My alma mater University of Mississippi grows the government's stash and I used to walk past one of their fields to get to school. It had a tall fence and the friendliest guard dog I've ever known. I was told the serious production happened at a more isolated and secure field.

    Well I like the plant anyhow, and plan on ordering seeds for it.

    Yup Yup I have heard of such a place, but forgot the name used. I want to say Cyprus hill, but I think I'm wrong on that one. There are so many usages to Mary Jane that its pathetic!! Jeans that will last 8 years easy. Ropes stronger than the nylon ropes of today. The seeds have the perfect balance of amino acids our body needs. One Acre of Hemp can produce as much paper as I think 9 acres of threes, plus that one acre can be grown annually where trees take years to mature. Also its not as bad as they claim it is for smoking either, but thats my opinion and the opinion of a few studies I have read. The majority still preach it bad. In fact I had a Dr go on and on about how its a neuro toxin this that and the other, and that night I researched it on line, and THC is being used to protect the body from neuro toxins. I printed it up and was going to give it to him, but I didn't feel like starting a war. Since he was a neruo surgeon and all. Doctors already are bad about knowing it all in their respected fields. Allot of them are afraid of new things being discovered. Thanks for the info Bruce that was an interesting read.
