Re: [aroid-l] HID Lights

I have often wondered -- would they know a Dizygotheca elegantissima if they
saw one?  It's a nice-looking plant, but I hesitate to grow one given the
so-called "war on drugs."

well, i have Hibiscus cannabifolia and nobody has batted an eye at it. they seem to know DOPE in the cultivated form, and do not know enough about plants to make a mistake. which is to say, they know what they know. they even know the difference between cultivated and wild. cultivated is pinched back to make many flower heads, which makes the foliage tufted. whereas the wild plant is all stretched out and rangy, Still, i think they have to really IDENTIFY the stuff and if you say it is Dizygotheca elegantissima, and bring your Exotica to them, and shrug calmly and caution them not to smoke any, i think you are home free. i do not believe the growing of plants which resemble marijuana is forbidden. it was grown locally to make rope during WW2. perhaps i mentioned that. so it grows wild, along with Daturas which are very potent, we have some Datura overdose kids every year.
