been planting stuff mu whole life but that's getting tougherm more expensive and i wouldn't want to leave things out - there are a good many hardy weeds around (hoary allysum etc). now, if i declared them native grasses, don't you reckon i could get loans, price supports, soil bank or something? heck if i looked around i probably have several acres alrady going! :)

Never fear all is not lost. You just need to change yer angle.

1)Sellin weed is big buisness. I hear they get somethin like $20 an once.

2)Get yourself one of those gov grants for compairing weed growth to ketup.

3)Apply for national park status and charge admission to Carp's Natural Weed National Park.

4)Help reduce national debt by grinding weeds to powered and sellin it in China.

5)Sell a story to the Enquire about how you saw Rush pickin your weed.

6)Write self help book. Weed for Dummies.

7)Or a cook book. 101 Ways to Prepare Weed.

8)Start a foundation for the preservation of weeds and pay yourself a extoirdary salary.

9)Place DR. in front of your name and delaire weed a cure for skin cancer and sell the antidote.

Ok enough from me anyone else have an idear........

is it really that much?,up here its not much more than a misdeamenor if your caught with a small amount don,t even think its under the criminal code any more and growers don,t seem to get much if there caught either,thats why theres so many doing it then profits are high(no pun)and concences are minimal.
