    Cannabis and Facebook

    I know this is not directly about growing our favorite plants but I hope this is an acceptable place to post this.
    I subscribed to Seedsmans newsletters some time ago because I could no longer rely on facebook or youtube to not censor sites associated with Cannabis.
    This whole thing about defunding, un-publishing or shadow-banning is not only very sad but in my opinion should be a wakeup call.
    I have found several large sites about cannabis that have completely disappeared over the years. When I found a way to contact some of them they expressed the same sentiments as Seedsman and were simply the victim of seemingly arbitrary decisions by the tech giants to ban them and again in my opinion hurt the whole industry and negatively affect many lives.
    Have a read if you like and see what you think.

    Facebook is a piece of shit. People are stupid for using it even tho we all know doesn’t care about people. Only about money. “Cancel culture” started with good intentions but one thing is to “mee too” some old creep in power and a very different thing is to shape public perception censoring according to comercial interest. I rarely dump my opinions in here but I really don’t like the data industry

        If you own firearms and tie yourself to cannabis thru social media.....well, you're kinda setting the stage.

        Dump that crap.
        Learned a lot this year. pH and whiteflies are issues that need controlling. Maybe an auto over January.....hmmmm...

          Yeah no worries. I misunderstood. Anyway. I don’t mind most American like guns. You are all clustered In one country and don’t pose a risk to my way of life. And I imagine being in a place where everyone has guns and uses them to kill other people I would get guns to create the sense of safety. We all want to survive 🙃 in Mexico there’s only one government run gun store. Still there are tons of ilegal guns. But only criminals use them. Regular people don’t mess with them. So if you are not in conflict with cops or criminals there’s really no need for them.

          YEp. In theory you could try get a license to hunt for example. And buy a licensed shotgun. Permit. Everything you need to go and hunt. It’s just not common. Private security firms buy guns in wholesale just like the police and army

        I said Fk FB years ago because all the advertising was driving me nuts, and Zuckerberg was becoming more and more suspicious in my view. I'm glad I left when I did, as they now won't even let you look around on FB if you don't have an account. That's proof that something fked up is going on.

          Being in the field I figured out big techs goal long before they started doing the bullshit they do. This is as close to social media as I get. Sorry but I don’t give a crap what you had for breakfast or what you’re wearing today 🤷🏻‍♂️ Just isn’t on my radar

          As far as the legalization of cannabis goes, anyone who believes it’s a good thing is kidding themselves. Criminally yes but like anything else, once the government gets involved and sees how much money can be made prices will skyrocket. Eventually homegrown will be illegal again because they will need to be able to control the potency of the product for safety reasons. Find you some strains you really like snd learn how to keep a mom and clone. Otherwise get ready to pay big bucks in the not so distant future.

            I will always grow as an outlaw. I won't allow anyone to regulate my grow. The home growers are the connoiseurs, the micro-brewery-type growers. Dispensaries will NEVER EVER be able to compete with what we grow.

            That's an awesome mutation. Did not know that happened. Seen the split color ones, but they're usually along the leaf rib.

          Even if the Government ok's weed, they will allow homegrown. Look at alcohol. You are still allowed to make wine and beer for your own consumption. It's impossible to truly regulate home grown so they will put out some limit such as four plants in order to please the critics and call it a day.
          Current grow:
          2-Sugar Black Rose, 2-Zkittlez 1-Gorilla Glue Auto
          Soil in 3 gallon pots. Indoors,

          Nobody--I repeat, NOBODY-- will regulate my grow. They will have to pull my colas out of my cold, dead fingers.

            Just keep in mind when shit hits the fan in America you still got Canada to flee to. Ever wondered why they do so well (socially) and America is falling into pieces? You are next door. Move to a pace full country. Even Mexico is way safer than the us. You are all welcome down here. Well have tequilas and laugh at the lack of government control in daily life. True freedom in my opinion

          Yeah I did fb some years ago, I kept getting banned, then one day they banned me for a month, no point in having something you can never use, so I dumped FB and have no regrets.

          I like this group more and more. I think posts like this are right on topic, as we have found on several levels the media and big tech can influence and even control legislation. So, if they are really for us, the small guy who relies on a common flower for relief and even cure of chronic illnesses, why haven't they influenced the laws in our favor. Cannabis legalization and a return to social acceptance would encourage legitimate studies on which strains and cannabinoids have the ability to alleviate which illness or even cure certain diseases. But they aren't even addressing the issue.
          I bet Bob Marley's mansion
          has a garden in the back
          Where he's growing something special
          Some celestial homemade hash
          we'll sit down on his front porch
          And listen to the angels band
          Until then I'll sing I'll fly away with a fat onefin my hand

            There are organizations and lots of individuals who are addressing it. NORML and Drug Policy Alliance have worked hard for decades. It's going to happen, it's just that the wheels of bureaucracy grind mighty slow in all the places where it's not yet legal, like my backwards ass state. The rednecks are so ignorant that they truly cannot even figure out what's in their own best interests
