I didn't misunderstand, that's why I included dogmatic beliefs. Even geniuses are conditioned to believe in stigmas or refuse to critically think. I knew that yours was an insult, why do you think I replied in kind?<quoted text>You totally misunderstood me. I live in the country and always have, but do I sound uneducated? Besides, even the country folk who lack book learnin' usually have common sense and knowledge that just cannot be gained in a classroom.
My own Mother had very little formal education, but was the smartest person I ever knew. Although I have more than one college degree, I still marvel at how much my Mother knew, and still wonder HOW she knew so much. Even being "uneducated" her critical thinking skills, knowledge base, work ethic and faith were beyond reproach. Growing up on a farm, I learned more useful knowledge from my Mother and other family members than all my years in college.
I have worked with people in high-powered positions, who had walls full of degrees, who were nonetheless as dumb as a rock. Coming from me, thinking a person lives in the city is not always a complement.

It's $200 thousand worth now; after it's legalized it will be worth about $200 dollars.

Gestapo pigs. Now society is safe.
Who really thinks this saved protects society. Fat donut eaters wobble in and bust a pot head and they are proud? Dumb.

What a waste of taxpayer money, busting someone for growing plants that hurt nobody. Another life going through hell because of outdated "laws" that cause more harm than good. Cops suck for this kind of crap.
