  1. Eighty Two miserable little plants !
    Someone should put this guy in touch with those good people in Grafton, who know how to do this public spirited work in a much more efficient manner.
    But tell me, what’s this “dangerous drugs,” nonsense ? could anything be further from the truth ?
    I wonder who decides that alcohol ,tobacco ,valium ,endone and the endless list of anti- psychotics are not “dangerous”,while a herb that has been used for thousands of years to great benefit, and with no possibility of overdose, is now suddenly some kind of threat to the public.
