    US Johnson & Johnson ruling

    But I guess that's economics hey?

    I've reflected on this, and I don't think the growers can absolve themselves completely of all responsibility. It's a little too convenient to just say "oh, we only grow the poppies that are really only useful for producing the key ingredients fuelling the opioid crisis, what happens to them after we sold them is none of our concern". I'm sure that Tasmanian Alkaloids were all too happy to continue profiting as long as nobody pointed a finger of blame in their direction.

    Sadly, history shows that the rich always get away with it because they are rich.
  4. The words deliriant and non-toxic are not often found together in the same sentence!

    cuzcoensis or peruvianus/cuzco

    The first pic looks like a different plant to the second pic, are they the same? If I look at pic 1, I'd say cuzcoensis. Cuzcoensis has swollen bases of the main central spines usually.

    2019 Trichocereus Australia Seed List

    Insane IB. So much work involved in there I can't imagine.

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    Apart from veges, I'm doing bulk Acacia. Acuminata, burkittii, courtii. Also going heavy on ornamentals. Sowed a lot of lupins, asters, sunflowers, zinnias, echinacea, catnip, poppies etc. What I'm NOT sowing: any more trichos! At least for a while!

    Chuck it in the compost

    Burning Brugmansia

    Ok, that's probably a decent amount then. I dunno, maybe wait until the wind is blowing away from the sheep? I still don't think it would be a problem, but I'd hate to give you bad advice.

    How much brug cuttings are you talking about here? I wouldn't think it would be a problem unless there's a very large amount.

    Ive been reading a lot about the cannabis cancer treatment protocols lately. Wouldnt it be great if more research was allowed.
  12. I'm interested in your thoughts on this. Not looking for a discussion on whether or not eating meat at all is ethical, rather, if you do eat meat, where would you draw the line, and why. Livestock for consumption are generally cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens etc. Whenever we hear about eating animals like horse, we seem to have a reaction "this is taboo". Why? How did we decide that eating one animal is ok, but another is not ok? Is it because one tastes better? Or just that certain animals have been considered as "allies" - eg domesticated dogs, horses we ride etc. Second question: is is actually more ethical to eat a cow than a chicken? My logic here is that one cow might be able to feed, let's say 100 people, whereas a chicken might only feed 4. Therefore, you'd have to kill 25 chickens to feed the same number of people as one cow. Is a life of a chicken equivalent to a cow? I mostly eat vegetarian anyway, but I don't have a problem with eating meat per se. Just pondering...

    Sounds like you know what to do already. That means you're already ahead of the curve.

    Monstrose ID

    The small green nodules you mention are vestigial leaves I think.

    It's an opuntia.
  16. Aren't they hemiparasitic? Might need to work out what sort of host they need to feed from as well to be successful. @Gimli any idea on this?

    Barnaby beetroot is a stupid pissed fool. I can't, for the life of me understand how this irrelevance keeps getting elected.
  18. Yes I do, I have experienced it. It was a very strange day, one of the best I've ever had. There was acid involved and I know lot of people will roll their eyes at that but hey. For about an hour, my best mate and I were in this state where he would be talking but they were my thoughts coming out of his mouth and vice versa. We were having shared visions. I also saw an eagle flying so high it was nearly invisible, then when it dived for a fish in the river, I saw everything through that eagles eyes. It was absolutely amazing.

    Not neggin on our brother, just musing on the comedic goings on everytime there is a hype clone that everyone decides they must have. I'm all for our man selling for whatever the punters are willing to pay. It's just funny how much people froth over a clone because of its supposed qualities that I guarantee nobody has officially verified. To me, Ogun looks much like a lot of other plants. I can almost understand when it comes to csd, which is quite unique looking. And @Halcyon Daze who cares when Zeus looks that sexy!

    The real black economy is the movement of money to offshore tax havens. Panama papers, anyone?

    The funny part is it's all about that famous test, but the test is lacking a lot of critical information that might justify the prices "ogun" is selling for now. I guarantee you there are plenty of other plants that would give it a run for it's money in "that" regard. I seriously doubt anyone who spent a couple of hunge on a small cut will be testing it for a loooooong time!
