    I got my Citrus Sunshine Haze tested- 38.9% THC + it is a high V strain, I need work, willing to move, hit me up at cerealkillergenetics@mail.com. Green House(and world) my name is Shaman Stinky Steve and I am creating fire, 76 strains now ready to bring to the table. I made the worlds best pain reliever in the Phantom Arrow strain and it is a must try. Much love-ShamanStinkySteve. P.S. Very sorry to see Franco go, he was a soldier in the war for legalization, a purveyor of truth and lover of cannabis. His contributions to cannabis culture and gene pool will live on forever in infamy.

    Who ever denies this is exploitation needs a reality check. Had it been a country with proper laws they'd have to pay royalties. He even starts with a 50 dollars and tells him to buy goats smh.

    These fuckers are just as greedy as those corporations taking Congo's resources for next to nothing.
