Grow some funk of your own, amigo!

A neighbor of ours is selling some live tobacco plants on craigslist. I understand that you can cook with this stuff as well as wreck your lungs with it. Go for it if you're so inclined.

If M50 passes, this "hobby" could really take off.

How long until the state begins taxing tobacco plants?

The neighbor adds:

The funniest/strangest thing happened to me when I was selling plants at the Hollywood market a couple weeks ago. Mostly I would get people who would say, Oh that's interesting, I saw those growing in Cameroon. A Vietnamese man told me how his dad grew tobacco. There were more like that -- all charming. However, there was one guy on a bicycle who said 'I want to pee on your plants' I could see that a conversation with him would go downhill really fast. Do you think he reads Bojack dot org?

'I want to pee on your plants'

I think what he really said was: 'I want to pee in my pants'.

Spandex IS washable.

Here are a couple of links about home grown tobacco:



Tobacco plants are not a finished product, therefore not taxable. Here is that link: http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/323.html

Tobacco growing is a big hobby in England -- precisely because of the high taxes.

Bojack -- thanks for the 'plug'
