i knew womone who did. one crop was enough for a few months supply from a couple of plants. but he was doing ti for taste not for cash reasons and because it interested him. but it was cheeper. think a few seeds some horse poo and water and then a little work at the other end to dry it shread it and roll it into cigars. he was happy and it was quite nice
not as stroky as i used to be
lol im sure you would, I doubt if someone has shelled out 100s on a decent hydro or light and ventilation set up they would share with you for the joy of it, i wouldnt but im selfish like that
If we were both growing no doubt we would sample each others wares....
Can some one pass me Fred's phone number.
Being home grown im sure its better than what most people are smoking.
The UK climate is a bit wet and miserable for drying the leaves outdoors so you would probably use up half your greenhouse.
However, tobacco is a good plant for controlling insects and IIRC you can mince it up and spray the goo on other plants.
It's fascinating stuff.
Weed is much easier to grow and you just need to dry it and smoke it. It grows well outdoors and doesn't need all the fancy lights and so on that commercial farms use. They use that stuff because they grow it indoors and out of sight. If it were legalised then the growing could take place without using the energy and harming the environment. Also growing it in the UK would help the balance of payments deficit as opposed to importing it.
Hemp was widely grown in the UK for making rope and is still a valuable crop. It can be used for making paper and sackcloth. You need to smoke a lot of hemp to get any effect but nevertheless it was banned and has only recently been grown again as a new variety with very little active content has been introduced.

Cannabis has many medicinal qualities that are positive and there is a recent resurgence of interest in it. It is possible to get the benefits without smoking the dried leaves and as a result running the risk of lung ill-health. There is strong anecdotal evidence it helps with MS in particular. I think therefore a great deal of the uninformed hysteria about weed is actually very unhelpful. As a recreational drug it's probably one of the least problematic on the planet. The previous attempts to move away from the heavy handed enforcement of it's prohibition were welcome but unfortunately the draconian penalties were left in place for "cultivation". I would argue further that as well as being a fairly unproblematic drug in its use that the "grow your own" people are probably the least problematic users. Unfortunate side effects include listening to bad music, wearing 70s fashion and being rather boring conversationalists. Not major "crimes" in the big scale of things
