Old 60s guy

I am 69, I grew back in the late 60s into early 70s. I live in Illinois and cannabis is legal for rec and medical use here. I use the plant for medical relief due to spinal operation. I am growing my 5 allowed plants and this new growing is well advanced from the old days of the 70s. I have been a NORML advocate for a long time. My grand mother and mother firmly believed in the cannabis plant as a healing herb some 75 years ago.

Welcome to the forum @Thunder51 :48:
I don't count my failed ones into my allowed 5 , I figure 5 good plants...lol
You may want to check those numbers again, I know it differs from state to state...but here in Missouri we can grow 6 in flower, 6 in veg, and also have 6 clones going all at once :slide:

I don't have a MMJ card or anything :hmmmm: I just stay under the radar, so to speak, on my own little 10 acres of the planet :snowboating:

Welcome, I travel north 3 hours to Anna and Carbondale to get my medicine. Not any longer now that I have plants I’m about to harvest. Shit is expensive on the Rec side . Medical prices seemed a little fair but not Colorado prices for sure lol
Anyhow glad you are here . Stick around and start a journal

Hey thank you, amazing how growing this weed has changed. Speaking of Anna IL. I was 3 years old and lived there on a farm with my grand parents that was light years ago.. I have been buying from Rise up here in Chicago suburbs its a 45 min trip to the dispensary , we haven't gotten a dispensary in our county yet. Still the prices are high even med side at 49$ a 1/8 is robbery so growing is the saving grace.:yummy:

High Thunder ! How's it growing in Ill. these days. Every time I see someone from Ill. I get homesick again. I'm originally from Calumet City; but moved to AZ. in 83. They call it Arizona & I call it Hellazona. I swear we are 6" above hell in the summer here with 120 F temps. Totally unbearable to me. I try not to even go outside as much as possible for 3 months. Just too damned hot ! Never the less, I miss Ill. big time. Can't even buy a house with a basement where I live. They don't build them out here very much because the ground is too hard. Take care & hope you have a great time here at 420 Mag.

Yeah that’s ridiculous, pay about $90 an 1/8 after taxes and it smells like hay, no trichs ( I am certain they tumble the weed once before packaging) so I don’t buy flower ever . Concentrates are $100 a gram = highway robbery lol

Hey, Yea Illinois went legal last year be it all for the sky high taxes on the weed, damn politicians...lol ..Cal city is about 2 hrs southeast of me i'm near the Wisconsin border where they still lock you up for weed. I was out in Phoenix one year on July 4th it was 118° man I will never forget that heat..lol. Yea after making a few legal weed purchases I knew it was time to do my own grow to save some money, social security doesn't cover the outlay of monthly expenses in today's world. :yummy:

In Illinois it is worth it to have a medical card. It casts $100 but the taxes are 3% not 49% for rec weed. Plus with a med card you can legally grow. Really the only thing I will get at the dispensary are vape cartridges.
