n without viewing the action; a
musical crescendo and a fadeout tell us as much as an explicit rendition about what
actually happened. (Sexual explicitness, however, is coming into style. All this means is
that different cryptograms are utilized.) By examining the marijuana controversy as such a
cultural fragment, we are able to see with crystal clarity the humanly fabricated nature of
the issues and the ideological character of the arguments invoked.
It is the sociologist's job to discover and explicate patterns in social life. One side of a
protracted and apparently insoluble controversy activates arguments that involve such
putatively repugnant components as "socially irresponsible," "vagabond existence,"
"outlandish fashions," "long hair," "lack of cleanliness," and "disdain for conventional
values."25 The other side emphasizes factors that it deems beneficial: "discovery,"
"optical and aural aesthetic perceptions," "self-awareness," "insight," and "minute
engagement."26 So we are led to the conclusion that the controversy is a matter of taste
and style of life, that it revolves about basically unanswerable issues, and its adjudication
will take place on the basis of power and legitimacy, not on the basis of scientific truth. In
fact, given the nature of the disputation, it is difficult to know exactly what is meant by
scientific truth. The problem becomes one of getting support for one or another bias,
rather than the empirical testing of specific propositions, whatever that might entail.
The American Medical Association urges educational programs as an effective
"deterrent" to marijuana use.27 It is not, however, the sheer accumulation of information
about marijuana which the AMA is referring to, since the marijuana user knows more than
the average nonuser about the effects of the drug. Attitudes toward the drug are referred
to, not factual information:
... district officials are so fired up, they'd interrupt the routine of the whole
district just to make sure our kids hear a good speaker or see a movie that
will teach them the basic fact: stay away from drugs.
In order to know exactly what it is that they should stay away from
students must know the nature of drugs... they're provided with basic facts.
These facts aren't given "objectively"—they're slanted, so there's not the
slightest doubt that students understand just how dangerous drugs can be.
You can call it brainwashing if you want to. We don't care what you call
it—as long as these youngsters get the point.28

The Marijuana Smokers - Chapter 3
Not only is the "meaning in the response," but both meaning and response are
structured by power and legitimacy hierarchies. Society calls upon certain status
occupants to verify what we wish to hear. These statuses are protective in nature,
especially designated to respond to certain issues in a predetermined manner. Threats to
society's security must be d
s and disadvantages.
The first thing you should know is that indoor lights produce
bigger flowers (more bud) than natural window light. This means you
get more THC quantity with artificial lights than you will with natural
sunlight indoors. Even in countries that have hot sun for 6 months of
the year you can still find it hard to produce big buds indoors under
natural light. Some people have grown plants under an attic window
that they open during the dry days. This will grow you bud but not as
much as you would get using an artificial light system. The other side
of the coin is that natural light is free, electricity is not and grow lights
are a little bit expensive to buy and use. They are definitely not as
expensive as it is to run an electric cooker 24 hours a day but they are
little expensive to use all the same.

When using a window grow try to place your plant near a
window that gets the most sunlight. Sun comes up in east and sets in
the west. It travels more north or south depending on which side of the
equator you are. Think about it for awhile. Also remember that you
have the seasons to think about. If you plan on a window grow try to
establish when you want your plant to receive most of its light. You
want your plant to get most of its light during flowering. If July is the
best month for sunlight then you may consider producing your
seedling back in April or May or even as early as late March. Try to
guess when you will get the best weather. Coordinate this with the
flowering times directed by the breeder and you will be able to foresee
your harvest time.
Also remember that people can look up and see your plant if
they are sitting near the window. Do people come to wash your
windows Also remember that if you have a Sativa plant then they will
get big. Take all these factors into consideration when you are growing
your plants with natural sunlight indoors.
If you are growing indoors then you may have a room or part
of a room that you wish to use such as an attic, closet, basement, spare
bathroom or hot press. These locations nearly always need artificial
light. You may even decide to build a cabinet yourself. There are many
ways to set-up an indoor grow room. We will discuss this later in

GENERAL OUTDOOR GROWING AND GUERRILLA
Outdoor growing is growing on your own property outdoors.
Guerrilla farming is growing away from your property in public areas
or on someone else’s property. For this part we will talk a bit about
Figure 3.12 - Outdoor Grow. Picture by Mullummadman.
The biggest problem with outdoor growing is keeping your
grow area secure and private. Some people will rip-off your plant in a
second if they see what you have (Figures 3.13 and 3.14). Others will
just create trouble for you. Security is vital. I once heard about a small
