It’s Times Like These That I Lament My Lack of Hobbyist Skills
Kentucky’s largest cash crop is Marijuana. Just up the road from me is Mammoth Cave National Park, a lush garden spot full of lovely marijuana basking in the lovely protection of the lovely United States Park Service. Duuuuuuuuude. Seems to me that marijuana demand and consumption will only increase. Sounds like a nice opportunity for a little extra income.
I saw a segment on CBS Morning News about a super hydroponic surround sound Marijuana grow garden that is perfect for the urban gardener. It was relatively small and since the plants were fully surrounded by artificial light, the yield was three times for a plant raised in sunlight.
Marijuana is the largest cash crop in Alaska, Alabama, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
No way am I an urban gardener, but I know if I had smokeable weed growing outside, it would be recognized and prematurely harvested by the kids next door.
Now that smoking pot for medicinal purposes is legal in Michigan, and Massachusetts is the thirteenth state to decriminalize pot possession, I’m thinking this might be a nice supplemental income.
Now comes the rub.
The grow garden would need to be shipped from Amsterdam. From experience I know that it would never arrive. Which is too bad, because I was going to use the United States Postal Service to send my product to my clients.
One person from the U.K. sent me “something” about six weeks ago, maybe longer. It never arrived. I asked Polly if she could send me a candle available only in Paris.
Polly described for me the huge rigamaroll it is to send anything out of France. She said it would literally take a day. And – get this – it goes on her permanent record retained by the French Government. Polly is a U.S. citizen, maybe dual, I can’t remember.
Again, my search for supplemental income is thwarted by the damn inconvenience of having to deal with governments.
*sigh* The marijuana cash crop thing is a real conundrum in California. I used to complain about too many seeds in my weed; now, you have to pay extra for seeds. Even if you have a prescription, which I do.

@Gretchen: I love hearing about your life. So much different than mine!
Yeah, GLS, except when it’s not. Apart from the presence of homework and the Sarah Silverman Program, and the lack of wool and spinning, I expect our lives are pretty much the same. I keep forgetting to smoke pot. Don’t tell anyone.
hehehe. I’ve heard that extended pot use fogs your memory???
You know your SIL has LOTSA expeirence with that-long ago, in a land faraway, he was a regular user of the stuff. And he’s going to kill me for telling you that…but he’s a good source of info should you decide to get into it!!!!
@Bulbous: What? I am totally shocked and appalled that a musician/creative type twenty-something would be into this. Flabbergasted! Har. Next you’ll be telling me he drank beer and liked women.
