What a waste of time & effort that goes into putting people into the criminal justice system for growing and selling a plant that grows on it's own in nature. The state should be paying farmers to grow, then selling in stores like cigarettes and liquor to control the product and reap the sales taxes. The war on drugs, esp marijuana, is a farce. Learn from prohibition and move forward.
