One could consider the ease in marketing as a prime factor in reducing
the cost of plantation managment. Also, while shipping, you would no
longer need the double beds, only a pickup could haul a weeks harvest.
Let's see, we could get the tobacco industry to front it (if they aren't
there already) cause they have the means to sway big gov'ment. They
could help on the advertizine.
And from a stand management point of view, nor more site prep. The
hangers on would clear the tops for us! Damn, and an export crop as
well. I am for it. Lets go fellow foresters, into a field of pot.
Damn, I hate rainey days.
