    Now if you want age it a bit and make a fine scotch or cognac, then yes it sits for years to age. But to produce alcohol.. a few weeks...tops
    Yes, i know. You misread my post or I just wasn't clear. By "fermented beverages" taking months-years I meant beer and wine. I guess you could make some beer in under a month, but I don't know if it would be very good. If you are going to distill the mash or whatever I'm sure it's much faster.

    If it's legal, you don't need to "grow crops" you only need to pick the plant and dry it out.

    If you can afford it, I'm sure that's what you'd do. If you didn't have a lot of money, and the stuff was growing all over your backyard, you might make a different choice.

    Yes, exactly!

    So maybe we'd just imagine a world where the plant is still illegal, but the licensed, manufactured, regulated, and taxed product is not. That DOES sound like America!

    Maybe the politicians can think up some interstate commerce laws too so that their distributor friends can also get a cut. It's sounding less and less likely that those same politicians - having created all this power for themselves - would turn around and let joe public grow at home.

    You underestimate the time required to do so in a quality manner. Secondly, there are various pests that can and will ruin a casual grow, not to mention natures own ways to ruin your crop. Some seeds will turn out to be male, and then you have yourself a whole bunch of issues.

    Take it from someone who is legally allowed to grow 25 plants in the state of California, its not as glamorous as you are making it out to be. Outdoor grows are wonderful if you have the time and money to put into guaranteeing pests or poachers will not effect your harvest. Lots of hard work. And if you are not experienced, it will almost always be a waste of time, relatively speaking.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I doubt it's any more difficult than growing parsley. Some of those issues might pop up if you're limited to growing a specific number. My comments were based on it being totally legalized. I think after thinking about Marduc's post, the liklihood of that is about nil.

    Nothing like a good glass of manufactured wine when you unscrew the cap.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You think people are going to hell for opposing marijuana use?
