Another cannabis arrest!


#41

From my understanding, the police will take bribes. They told me to have bribing money if I was to do it. In fact we’ve been warned to not let police do anything without camera and eyes watching as they’ve been known to plant drugs to get bribes.


#42

Well, one is a gateway drug for the other, and vice versa.


#43

Not worth the risk in any case.


#44

Yeah no way. Taiwan’s laws already deter me from it. Malaysia is on a different level.

Ironic as Cannabis is indigenous to SE Asian. And the aboriginals in Taiwan are the first known people who cultivated Cannabis.

I am a bit jealous seeing all the new Cannabis products out. Like wine, soda, chocolate.

I tried some cream for pain and it was pretty good.

The huge marijuana trees growing around Kunming and Dali in China brought tears to my eyes. What a waste. :disappointed_relieved:


#46

K-man must have gotten an exclusive. He even has a picture from inside the factory!!


#47

What, he didn’t use the new technology? LED’s specific for growing plants!


#48

After completing his military service, Chi worked as an apprentice in a fried chicken shop, but felt overwhelmed by the “pressure,” so he decided to start smoking and growing marijuana with his 59-year-old girlfriend Yu.

The guy was 35, wtf.


#49

JESUS CHRIST. I was thinking:“One plant…wow, must be a huge one, i’m not in the drugs meta so i don’t really know how big…”

FACTORY.

If only you could “meme” marijuana into traditional Chinese medicine here.

Don’t they use salvia to treat chronic renal disease thru TCM here?


#51

“After a court hearing, the judge ordered that Yu be held incommunicado, while Chi was released on NT$200,000 (US$6,500) bail and ordered to be confined to his residence.”

Now why would that be?


#52

The balcony across my house’s balcony Belongs to a police officer in Taiwan lol.


#53

Gaoliang and binlang will do just fine!


#54

Looks like something we ate back in the old country. We eat lots of flowers, actually.


#55

Amateur…that thing is obviously the size of a sequoia.


#56

@Rocket mentioned the guy did a stint in the Marines here. Who knows what fate could have awaited him in that situation? Maybe he has his own particular ideas about risk. In any case, I hope things work out as well as possible for him.

I don’t have gardening tools or oregano plants; I just have some aloe and a pseudo-bonsai. But my apartment balcony doesn’t get the best light for those plants. Nonetheless, every time I think about buying a plant light, I think, “Naw, don’t do that,” for the reasons y’all alluded to.

The security guard at the last building I worked at said to me in a friendly, well-meaning way, “You are a foreigner; all eyes are upon you.” I don’t know if that’s completely accurate, or whether it’s worth worrying about, but it’s something I think about every now and then.


#57

If I recall correctly, cannabis is mentioned in the Materia Medica.


#58

I’ve been looking for the right plant light. I want to grow baby greens inside. I’m sure I do plenty of other things to make that neighbors suspicious of me.


#59

You’ve never tried that fruit? It’s so common, I planted the seeds when I was still in taichung. It looks like it’s not bothered too much by Yilan 's weAther


#60

I had to Wikipedia it. Man, those seeds are big.
