    Given that a tune is involved I think it’s the piper who gets paid. Indeed we’ve be strongly advised by Christy Burge not to part with any money to the ferryman until he fulfils his transport obligations.

    …you grow in a controlled environment like oh say a greenhouse for a few reasons one is yield or weight.

    -a half decent grower with a greenhouse and 39 plants should ‘pull’ close 50 pounds annually,easy from it.

    street prices at say 3,000 a pound or 50 pounds at 3 grand is 150,000-quite a nice nice hobby and experiment.

    just as well he’s white and rich and the judge is blind.

      I thought you wanted decriminalisation. More cases like this show the whole war on drugs to be lunacy. I wonder who the scum bag who snitched him out is.. they’re the real criminal in this story..

        …in every war there are casualtites,just never rich white farmer’s it appears,they have K2 in the joy,he’s keen on drug experiments,apparantly it makes you feel like you are ‘space walking’.

        Someone who had a chip on their shoulder, was feeling salty, cheesed off or a bit vinegary perhaps?

        justice relies on the concept of fairness,it’s really a social justice issue ,as opposed your knee jerk play the race card question…..

      I’d say you can’t wait

      People like you love to see the State i.e. us, being sued and giving large payouts to FFGLabSocDemGreen lawyers

        nah, Giggidy likes to see people vindicate their rights against State overreach and abuse, using the courts to push back and protect theirs, and our rights.

        It’s how they send it out. You’re forced to buy it, I guess, but it’s a bit silly.

      Armchair republican much? It’s fair enough to be honest, if they were trained soldiers following a direct order from Thatcher and co.

          “Evil comes from a failure to think. It defies thought for as soon as thought tries to engage itself with evil and examine the premises and principles from which it originates, it is frustrated because it finds nothing there. That is the banality of evil.”

        “Armchair republican much?” – This isn’t about me. I am not sure what your statement has to do with innocent Irish people being murdered and the murderers not facing justice.

    -about 3750,000 sick old people died with covid last year.

    -about 100,000 mainly young people died drug overdoses last year.

    … Overdose deaths reached a peak nationally in the spring of 2020, in the midst of the pandemic’s most severe period of shutdowns and economic contraction….

    one the biggest factors in the pace cannabis legislation in states,is that its all out of pocket,you have pay for it yourself.

    hopefully,next year workers comp is going start covering medical cannabis for long term pain relief,some union locals estimate about 20% their members are on some form opioid pain management program,with many abusing it.

    veterans are prohibited in states from taking cannabis,if caught they can lose their VA benefits,they can not work in the industry and many want to and do,risking their hard fought benefits .

    Gino has always insisted that Ireland is different and the state,should pay for your weed/medicine,its a major hold up.

      All the ginned up stuff about the covid vaccine and big pharma, and there are the Sacklers, openly profiting from evil and suffering for decades.

        Gino’s bill for cannabis in ireland has the unintended consequence of enriching pharmacists,by making them the cannabis dispensaries,he’s actually really well intentioned,but has been given absolutely no support by any other party.

        The old men and women in Belfast and Boston still shun cannabis,so Sinn Fein sits it out,despite lobbying internally from the younger memebers,but cash talks in SF,so its only matter time with those opportunistic shinners…

        cannabis and hemp can work CBD(hemp) and THC(cannabis) with opioids / withdrawal /early stage detox cravings /long term management.
