    Buying native seed online

    If by chance you are chasing any tubestock on island Humbolt I recommend Habitat Plants nursery at Liffey. Beautiful, hard grown plants... I've put a few members onto them before. http://www.habitatplants.com.au Good and knowledgeable, used them personally and professionally for thousands of plants on rehab and treatment systems. I generate a few tas native seeds at home and the surrounds including some threatened species each year usually, depends on what's on and processing time ect. (South esk pine, Morrisbys gum, blue pincushion ect) Happy to send ya down something My boy is thinking about doing some seed collecting (.. Read as me collecting and processing... Lol) as he wants to raise some coin for charity..(i think for my kind of fuckedness) . So I'll be traveling about a few veg types as soon as seed comes on during the coming months as well. If you haven't found them there is Wildseed Tas http://www.wildseedtasmania.com.au Not the cheapest, but I've had good success from a few tricky species they stock. Whole I'm at it, there is also the Understory Network http://www.understorey-network.org.au Which has a fantastic online database of seed collection times, treatments needed ect for Tassie plants

    The conservatives are getting spread a bit thin on a raft of issues.... They are gunna have to lose a few I reckon Tas is in the running for last, funny enough I reckon the excuse will be to protect the hemp industry and not the poppy industry which was one of the prior excuses... Beyond some sitting members being conservative, religious zealots that think their way is divine. I laughed so hard true but... Prepare your happy clapping hands

    CBD oil?

    Some things are best not said on public forums I would still presume the law is not covering the processing of oils.... And hash/concentrates ect. The devil is always in the detail.
  7. Shit... Lol... I'm glad I caught the edit. Good to clarify that the stock is sterile
  8. Any idea if they are fertile or sterile stock @Acacia?

    Visitation by birds

    Mynahs have on occasion made the north coast, but they are a target to keep out. Mynahs would smash the small bird populations around the urban centres. There was a salmonella strain that hit the sparrows statewide detected around 2009 and 2016 in the north but they bounced back a little. The south had a few reports, but I have no idea how they were affected. Nothing like the numbers they were though. Lol... I've got a skyrat (starling) trying to nest in my heater flue. I usually catch one or two a year In the heater box. The welcome swallows have this week come back to the nests I allow them to have on the house. I use their arrival as a cue to start planting a few things. I love watching their aerobatics and listening to their little chirps as they dart about.

    Lol... I'm already copping it from the seasonal shift, but for now stopped guinea pigging myself on medications so I'm off that roller coaster Also not far from picking myself back up a vehicle so I will be more independent from the fam transport wise. Can't say yes yet, but won't say no... Even if I have to cross the border... Lol

    Don't take on a nicotine addiction Caster... They are Fuckers of a thing Nicotine is a pretty Damn potent poison with a rapid onset, but there are reasons it's been revered by many cultures... At least before big money entered the scene.

    Feeling slightly stoned after smoking mopacho

    Nicotine Much higher levels if it. As someone that would have low tolerance if you push it you may get to feeling a bit "green", and head into tobacco spins territory... I'm with Glaukus re smoking (when I use to smoke tobacco), but snuffs and some snus products (super strong.. Lol) where excellent with rustica in them.

    US Johnson & Johnson ruling

    US opioid crisis ruling leads to $845 million fine for drug maker Johnson & Johnson in Oklahoma Posted1 day ago, updated1 day ago IMAGEAn Oklahoma judge has told Johnson & Johnson to clean up the state's opioid crisis.(Giulio Saggin, File Photo: ABC News) A US state judge has found Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries helped fuel Oklahoma's opioid crisis, ordering the consumer products giant to pay $US572 million ($844 million) to clean up the problem. Key points: The Attorney-General said Johnson & Johnson was a "kingpin" motivated by "greed" The Oklahoma judge said the company understated the drugs' addiction risk Opioid overdoses killed 4,653 people in the state from 2007 to 2017 Johnson & Johnson has a contract with poppy growers in Tasmania who produce a lot of the raw opium used to make the company's drugs. Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman's ruling followed the first state opioid case to make it to trial and could help shape negotiations over roughly 1,500 similar lawsuits filed by state, local and tribal governments consolidated before a federal US judge in Ohio. "The opioid crisis has ravaged the state of Oklahoma," Mr Balkman said before announcing the verdict. "It must be abated immediately." The companies are expected to appeal against the ruling to the Oklahoma Supreme Court with one of its lawyer, Sabrina Strong, calling the judge's decision "flawed". IMAGEJudge Thad Balkman arrives to give his decision in the Opioid Lawsuit in Norman.(Pool Via AP: Sue Ogrocki) Before Oklahoma's trial began on May 28, Oklahoma reached settlements with two other defendant groups — a $US270 million ($398.5 million) deal with OxyContin-maker Purdue Pharmaand an $US85 million ($125 million) settlement with Israeli-owned Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. Oklahoma argued the companies and their subsidiaries created a public nuisance by launching an aggressive and misleading marketing campaign that overstated how effective the drugs were for treating chronic pain and understated the risk of addiction. Oklahoma Attorney-General Mike Hunter said opioid overdoses killed 4,653 people in the state from 2007 to 2017. Mr Hunter has called Johnson & Johnson a "kingpin" company that was motivated by greed. He specifically pointed to two former Johnson & Johnson subsidiaries, Noramco and Tasmanian Alkaloids, which produced much of the raw opium used by other manufacturers to produce the drugs. Tasmanian Alkaloids is Australia's largest processing company for opium poppy. "[Johnson & Johnson] have been the principal origin for the active pharmaceutical ingredient in prescription opioids in the country for the last two decades," Mr Hunter said after the trial ended July 15. "It is one of the most important elements of causation with regard to why the defendants … are responsible for the epidemic in the country and in Oklahoma." 'This entire crisis began in Tasmania and New Jersey' Brad Beckworth — one of the state's lawyers — said Johnson & Johnson underestimated his team. "We know that the root of this entire crisis began in Tasmania and New Jersey with Johnson & Johnson," Mr Beckworth said. "And they can't laugh anymore, they can't call this case baseless anymore." The small-town doctor fighting the family blamed for the opioid crisis INFOGRAPHICArt Van Zee moved to the poorest county in Virginia to run its community health centre.(ABC News) Art Van Zee's medical centre has become an unlikely rallying point for a class action against OxyContin's manufacturer. Lawyers for the company have maintained they were part of a lawful and heavily regulated industry subject to strict FedExral oversight, including the US Drug Enforcement Agency and the Food and Drug Administration, during every step of the supply chain. Lead lawyer Larry Ottaway said during closing arguments that opioid drugs serve a critical health need — to address chronic pain that affects thousands of Oklahomans every day. "This problem of untreated chronic pain afflicts people here in Oklahoma," Mr Ottaway said. Oklahoma pursued the case under the state's public nuisance statute and presented the judge with a plan to abate the crisis that would cost between $US12.6 billion ($18.6 billion) for 20 years and $US17.5 billion ($25.8 billion) over 30 years. Lawyers for Johnson & Johnson have said that estimate is wildly inflated. Also on Monday, the Kentucky Supreme Court declined to review an earlier ruling, making previously secret testimony from former Purdue Pharma president Rickard Sackler and other documents public. The court record was sealed in 2015 as part of a $US24 million ($35.4 million) settlement between Purdue and Kentucky. The 17 million pages of documents were being shipped on Monday from Frankfort to Pike County, where the case originated. The Pike County Circuit Court Clerk's office could not immediately say how and when they would be available. https://www.google.com/amp/amp.abc.net.au/article/11451758 *shakes head* FFS

    US Johnson & Johnson ruling

    School pickup...I've got a different bent Legit commodity with essential usages. That would mean a hops grower or viticulturalist can be accountable for an alcoholics death, or sugar cane grower for someone who smashed sugar to type 2 diabetes as loose examples if I apply that sorta logic. Personal accountability appears to have disappeared In this increasingly fucked up world.... The diversion to illicit narcotics came after prescription, an example is this doc prescribing 17,000 oxy tabs over a 7 month period to one patient this tale is one of many. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jailed-doctor-barry-schultz-interview-opioid-epidemic-60-minutes-2019-08-25/# No one can claim that is legitimate use Bloody regulation should have stopped that shit.. They are supposed to be the gatekeepers ... Thankfully Aus has "better" control, although there is always some diversion. Once a month my doc has to state my case to the regulators for "narcotic" medication ... And there has been plenty of challenges. Now in the US in the lead up to the finger pointing and absolving themselves, there have been cancer patients, and a myriad of chronic conditions needing narcotic medications that have been cut off with docs refusing prescribing. Sadly a heap went illicit and onto heroin and fent (some kratom) as an alternative medication rather than "recreational". This is when the shit really started to hit and a lot of these folk are amongst the numbers of the fallen. The broken medical system and piss poor regulation facilitated it, and the outcomes are a sign of a society seriously struggling whilst trying to keep up appearances. There is ramifications for us here, and even more so developing countries that need greater access is to come . It is also going to put a hold on other drugs that are not narcotic with promise being derived from poppies being dropped from development. It's not just Americans that are supplied by the fields although they are looking like they can't be trusted with them....

    Melbourne Piracetam doctor

    There is no schedule 1.... If you need to see a doc that would be a schedule 4(prescription only)... If scheduled 4 (as I think it is, but someone else can confirm) , are there actually any Aus registered preparations for docs to prescribe? I'm pretty sure the medicos don't recognize any condition requiring it here and there's the root of the problem. Ramifications if independently importing if scheduled 4..

    Hothouse tips.

    https://www.redpath.com.au/greenhouse-horticultural-films-and-fabrics/greenhouse-films/clear-long-life-greenhouse-film/hortiplus.html Worth a look. If going entry level polytunnel... entry quality material 3 + year lifespan. Can get a suitable span width cut to length. This is clear... A lot of the time a white tint is preferable though. Go supacheap on the tunnel cover and you'll regret it, it'll fail at just the worst moment ... Tear, stretch, UV breakdown... Become a kite... Stars and poly (2" which ain't cheap) the go, timber around the base to attach onto, and box up a door/s. Cheapest IMO is salvaging old window frames with glass and construct from there.... Old shower doors lined up another idea
