Guerilla Ganja Discussion

Photohippie wanted us to continue our discussion, but Grandpiper made a good point that the comments would be irrelevant to the Instructable and would clutter it all up. I figure that in a forum we can get more ideas on the matter, and I think it's something worth discussing.

What was said so far...
GrandPiper says:
I always wanted to do this with marijuana seeds. They grow fast and can survive under pretty harsh conditions. Im sure they would get pulled up eventually but if you hit enough spots with them and planted close to 20 or whatever a spot, i think it would really send a statement to your city. I wanted to do it preferably in the downtown area, add some green life to the dead concrete jungle.

Valche says:
Usually I try to leave positive comments, but that's a stupid idea. I'm all for legalization, but planting pot isn't going to make any statement other than "Wow, some pothead thinks they're cool."

GrandPiper says:
Hmm what's your idea then? Writing your politicians so they can blow us off for lobbyists? How is my idea much more different then marching in the streets? The guerrilla growing is a way to say "hey i dont think smoking marijuana is as bad as other legal drugs" and it also doesnt expose yourself to the police as a marijuana smoker. This can be done in the cover of the night and you could carry a lot of seeds without being noticed.

Sorry for posting a response irrelevant to the instructable! and Valche if you want to discuss this further, send me a pm.

while i'd like for pot to be legal, this idea (Ganja bombs) is about the same as if you were to leave guns lying around in the street because you didn't like gun control laws.

if pot were legal, it would be legal like alcohol or tobacco, it would need regulation. you'd have to have a minimum legal consumption age, etc...

if you just go around planting pot plants all over creation like johnny apple seed then a lot of kids are going to get their hands on the stuff in an uncontrolled and unsupervised manner.

Ganja law is crazy everywhere you go. I went to north thailand and the guesthouse owner came to chill with us, he said he had some ganja from a police friend who seize it from the tribal people. It was a large bag but that batch was almost pure seeds. I learned later that the tribal people use hemp to make their clothing, so they probably not really 'drug users'. Sadly I think they went to jail for it anyway.

Has anyone seen the Rick Steve's conversation about marijuana? It was on OnDemand in WA for was a really great program...The main point of it was taxpayers are wasting their money sending potsmokers to jail when potsmokers are such a mimimal threat...Viva la Ganja Goddess! Prohibition was abolished because the people didn't want it as a law, and the same thing should be happening with marijuana laws...
The smokers themselves are a minimal threat, I will give you that, but the reason they are being sent to jail is to try and shut down the whole trade. Currently issues are showing up on the Mexican border with the drug funded gangs carrying out murders and other major crimes. So funding the drug trade is very similar to just sending money over to the terrorists in Iraq.

With any form of guerilla gardening you would be encouraging overreaction. In the case of marijuana, you may find that the police form a task force in response increasing the tax burden and further filling the jails/prisons. Do you think they will have inmates or community service workers combing every green area looking for pot? They would recruit a phalanx of cadets to be standing in every field, park and yard looking for "those who sponsor terrists."

Legalize weed, make alcohol illegal
Legalize both.
no, just weed
But weed does more damage to your body than alcohol.

Why would you legalize either? They both do some form of damage and are not necessary.
