Good Luck!

Here in the USA it is illegal to posess this weed
and even universities cannot conduct research on
this plant without especially "contained" growing
facilities...disposable clothing, special greenhouse
construction including "airlocks" and so on.  Our
government is quite tight about this plant.  ARGH.

I wanted to work with it, but alas only five places
in the US are approved to handle it.
