  1. Feel free to smoke corn, then. I’ll stick with cannabis.

    conversely if the crops are grown for seeds, to consume as the longest polyunsaturated essential fatty acid chains, superiors are grown in the north

    I’ve driven 10kms worth of weed today.

  4. What do you mean when you write carbon? Do you mean carbon dioxide? Carbon monoxide? Coal? Diamonds? What are we talking about?

      I can’t believe they didn’t know this. Not the numbers, but that growing it indoors is costly.

    So your telling me the government screwed things up again.

  7. You don’t grow corn inside.
    Cannabis grows outdoors as well. Transport? Nonsense.

  8. They will say anything to stop marijuana. What about how rum , beer. Ect they are all made indoors.

  16. I was going to start ripping this story apart thinking it was a poorly done, non peer-reviewed, or biased study. I learned something though. I will leave it at that.

    Use the whole plant. It will solve so many issues. If there’s a real will there’s a way. He biggest problem in Ontario is tge packaging. It’s outrageous, the waste.

    Summary: Any crop grown indoors has increrased carbon footprint… bait.

  19. Keep marajuana and get rid of tobacco…great balance and we end up dealing with less cancer.

  20. This study is probably just a way to set up increasing taxes on it…
