Hurt is one of hundreds of would-be pot producers paying $500 to learn the business after Florida last week joined the march of 22 states permitting limited marijuana use.

There is money in those plants or we can keep sending people to prison. No harm will come to you from this plant closely related to parsley.


Redundant - no harm, outside of that pesky jail thing.

This Scott and the legislators that approved this horrible law should be arrested by the DEA and tried for violating federal drug laws and conspiring with others to violate federal drug laws.
