plants don't uptake carbs either, they manufacture them from the nutrient ions absorbed through the roots

The grape koolaid probably lowered the PH causing more phosphorus to be available and may have provided some micro-nutrients. Also, sugar feeds bacteria in the soil that convert nutrients into usable forms. Molasses is a great garden amendment. The plants don't actually use molasses, besides the sulfur and magnesium, but is makes for healthy soil.
Basically, farm the dirt, not the plant.
I bow to your superior knowledge. I don't know much about it but would love to learn. It just sounds like a fun hobby and under five plants is just a misdemeanor. I don't think they would even say much if you had a couple for personal use.

I have seen it before where the person over fertilized it and it ruined the final product. There really is a science behind it, hell its an art form when its done right.

I'm sure we'll see it legal before we become fertilizer ourselves. RIP Gatewood.

Just don't think that spreading strawberry jam around the roots will make it taste like strawberrys. Plants love nitrogen all the way until death. Tomatoes usually yellow off from the bottom up; Typical nitrogen deficiency. People feed bloom/fruit ferts; ie. high P/K ferts thinking they will grow bigger tomatoes and run out of nitrogen. Keep green leaves until the end and you will be happy with all vegetables. Avoid blooming ferts high in P/K. Industry garbage. Grow lush healthy plants and you'll get great veggies. Nitrogen is your ally.

I would call that self-medication and not being a druggie. I would like to see it legalized for just this sort of thing. I'm too afraid to buy it for fear that the dealer would have laced it with other stuff. That's part of the issue with anything illegal is quality control. We need alternatives to the current market driven pharmaceuticals that are too expensive and too many side effects. I can't take pain meds because they either don't work, or they constipate me so bad they make things worse, or I'm allergic. Thank God, at least I can now get beer. That has it's own problems too, but you know the golden rule, "He who has the gold makes the rules."

I see commercials all day long claiming to do something and ending with a multitude of possible side effects, and others saying if you have taken this or that and suffered one of the umpteen side effects to please contact so and so (attorneys). How can anyone trust the FDA and their partners in crime the AMA and various Ins. companies. They have an agenda (to get rich) and political clout (PACS). Politicians help them with their agenda and when they are finally not re-elected they go sit on the board of one of these companies, the greed, the propaganda.... It all just sickens me! I sure hope someone has picked up Gatewoods torch to carry on the fight.

About the druggie remark,it was made tongue in cheek for the people who think of us as potheads.
I haven't bought it since,well, we will say a long time ago.
Before I retired the company had drug testing.I know what you mean about pharmaceuticals.I'm not saying a person should be able to use cannabis at work,but if I wanted to I could have loaded up on meds,and that would have been ok.What a strange law.

I think that they should just make it like homebrewing where you can make your own (or in this case grow), you can use it, you can give it away, you just can't sell it without a license.

I've never used it, but have spent years in horrific pain without relief. If I had had access to anything with proper quality control I would have tried it. What is currently on the market is insufficient. Adding another narcotic to the market for people allergic to narcotics doesn't help them. Marijuana is an obvious, no brainer option that is a new class, except for quality control and that is merely a byproduct of it being illegal.

It was sure hard getting off those pills.That was one of my first priorities,when I retired.Who would want to go thru life not remembering how good life is.

Good marijuana will help with the withdrawal symptoms when coming off opiates. Marijuana just makes everything better. I don't like the increased appetite part but for some people they need that more than anything. Its a good plant with many, many uses.

You wouldn't expect them to want to fill up the for profit prsons with violent people now would you? That'd be dangerous.
