Hope no one minds that I enter this contest, as i haven't been around much, but this sounds like fun.
Back in 1989, the price of pot was at a record high. I was a daily smoker then, and had always bought my weed in quantity, selling to friends to discount my
consumption. Never one to follow the rules, we decided to build a secret room. We lived on an acre of land, at the end of a dead-end street next to a Grange Hall,
off of River Rd. in Eugene. Half of the acre on one side of the house, with a small shop, was blackberries. We went down lower on the shop side, and laid a foundation.
We certainly did not get the required permits. We trained the blackberries to grow over the room so it was concealed. Wasn't invisible of course, and I always worried
about heat seeking technology, but we felt fairly secure. We accessed the room through a hidden door in the shop, and used Jorge's book as a guide...clones from
a friend...4 600W lights, and vented the room into an outdoor shed. Quality was very good, but quantity was low because I never transplanted out of 1 gal. pots.
Still managed over a pound which was selling for ??? $3,200.
Our house, which we rented for $160, was tiny at 750 sq ft. We had added an extra 300 sq ft with 2 extra bedrooms (and grow rm), when I became pregnant with
my first child. Well, we made it too nice, as our landlord (a friend), decided to get back with his ex-wife, and we were asked to leave. Welcome to the real world!
Years later, I was talking to someone who had lived a couple of blocks away at the same time, and they could smell it...Yikes! I don't like to think what could have
happened if we would have been busted, especially regarding my kids. I did learn the medicinal value as when I was growing, my brother was fighting cancer
and going through chemo. It helped him so much, and wish I would have known what I know now regarding RSO. He fought for 2 years, and died at 46.
I feel blessed to live in Oregon, a pro-cannabis state!!
