Urban Grower: Medical Marijuana Heart of Gold

Went to a surprise party near Vancouver a few years ago. The surprise was this mysterious medical marijuana grower on the redwood deck outside the party house.

All the other BC bud I’d been smoking was unflushed chemweed that made butane lighter companies rich because the stuff wouldn’t stay lit. That BC chemweed tore your lungs out.
