Post Legal Herbs?  Reply with quote
I was reading up on the difference in health effects between marijuana and tobacco (and no, I have never smoked either and don't plan to) and apparently there's a popular and legal alternative to marijuana, "legal buds" or something. Health-wise, it's supposed to be the same as marijuana but instead give more motivation and clarity, and is safer. I remember a few of you mentioned that you didn't want to grow marijuana because it's illegal--which makes me wonder if any of you would be interested in the legal alternative. It's food for thought. I'll do some more research if you want.

*goes to get updated*

Possibly hemp? I've heard amazing things about it. It's related to marijuana (cannibis family), you can make fabric and rope out of it that is much stronger than things like cotton, it doesn't contain THC (the hallucinogen responsible for the effects of marijuana: yes people, weed is a hallucinogen) but can still be smoked for beneficial effects, and lots, lots more things. The seeds are really, really tasty, too! Almost like flax and almond, and healthy for you as all get-out.

No, not hemp, just other herbs with similar qualities...but is hemp legal to grow? Hemp IS so useful, I know! If we could grow it, it would be something unique to sell and use.

Yes it is legal to grow. It is also untaxable for some reason I've never discovered. Very Happy

!

Why not grow hemp then? It's so useful, and we could probably sell excess!

We could use it in food, try to make our own materials out of it, etc...

Is there any type of licensing we need to grow hemp? or will it be clear to the law in the area that it's hemp not pot.

It will be very, very clear, and you need no permits, no licenses, it's untaxable, etc. Smile Hemp is amazing.

LeReveur, I've been reading about hemp and I'm not sure but it might actually be illegal to grow, or you need a permit or something which is hard to get...we should try doing more research in it, whoever lives in Iowa, maybe they could ask around, as that would be best and we should be 100% sure. >_>;
