I just wanted to say that I am so tired of being ripped off and not getting the right stuff. The only way to get what you’re looking for is to grow it yourself, or to be in a medical marijuana state where you can just go to the store and get what you want. As for my grow question: Can you just put seeds in a cup and water them (under lighting, of course) to get them started? It seems like that would be enough. I’m sure I’ll have more questions for you in the future, so please let me know.

Also, my wife and I plan on attending the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup this year, so any information would be great on both topics: growing and cool trips with lots of mari­juana. I am very interested in becoming very good at this, and I plan on being on your cover one day with one of my newly created strains. In the meantime, I am working with the money I have (not much, but I’m using what I have to make do). My wife and I are recreational smokers who also use it for self-medicating; we’re both bipolar and have found that it really does calm our nerves. We look forward to the day when marijuana is legal for everyone and not just some­thing that we have to tiptoe around to get and use. Thank you for your magazine!
