    I've grown both indoors and out with mixed results. I stopped because I lived with the fear (it's illegal here unless you have a medical grower's license) that a cop would have to come into my house for some reason, and if growing outside all your neighbors can smell it after it buds out. It was certainly financially worth it, but I hated that ever-present nagging worry and deemed it not worth it. Mostly I can't risk getting busted while responsible for my mother.

    I'm waiting for New Mexico to decriminalize personal use and growth of at least some plants. We're a pretty Liberal state in the forefront of causes - our governor has just now withdrawn National Guard troops from the border, defying Trump, for instance -

    - but we're lagging behind in the legalizing pot thing.

    The Supreme Court bans Police civil asset seizure 9-0.

    I'm generally pro-police but this is too much. Not based on conviction or even indictment, police can seize your house/money/car etc. if they have reasonable cause to believe they came from illegal drug profits. You have to sue to get your stuff back. Police directly profit by getting to keep the money/cars etc. to use themselves (in Philadelphia, 1/3 of the police budget comes from asset seizures) so it's a direct conflict of interest. It clearly violates unreasonable search and seizure and should never have been done. Asset seizure should be a post-conviction process.
