It's ridiculous that any plant is illegal to grow. All plants are naturally part of our heritage and so we should recognize the inherent right of all people to grow any plant in existence. I think that this is fundamental and obvious. Do away with laws against growing plants and that's one less excuse they have to send in the SWAT team!

Although the leaves of the chaste tree (aka, monk's pepper) do look similar to miniature hemp leaves, the growth habit and the colorful flower spikes give away it's true identity.

mrgreen: Some people smoke just about anything that'll burn, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea to smoke it. In fact, most people would most likely agree that's a bad idea to smoke ANYTHING. What I heard is that you can grind the dried seeds and use them as a pepper substitute. There's no guarantee that there are no toxic ingredients, but if you can ingest the seeds, then you can probably smoke them if you really want to, but the question that you should ask is WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO?

Elderly Pennsylvania Couple Sues Police After Cops Mistake Hibiscus Plants For Pot, Allege Excessive Force
Well, durrr... of course, it's excessive force. You don't arrest people for a hibiscus plant! :smack:
Sometimes I think they look for crime where it doesn’t exist in order to justify their existence.

I was expecting this topic was going to be about the dangers of synthetic marijuana
