I’m the guy that makes an 1/8th last a week so my 8 oz harvest will be mostly given away. Financially, buying is cheaper for me but the reason I chose to grow was because I hate hunting it down. Chasing weed causes me to tell others that I smoke. Like my username implies, I like to remain silent about it. Only a select few of my closest friends even know I smoke. I’m in a less than legal state and while the risks of getting caught are lower, it is still a possibility. I also like that I know what’s in my weed, where it came from, and what to expect from it. While I spent more on my first grow than I’d smoke in a year, the cost of piece of mind is priceless.
