4. This last growing season is likely my last.

I've had phenomenal luck with outdoor growing over the past 8 years. I've always used quality soil and good growing enhancements, and each plant (between 2 and 4 per season) has always produced between 10 and 16 oz of high potency weed. And I've always had WAY too much for personal/family consumption, so I've given away much more than we've used. (Our state law prohibits selling privately.) This last growing season, I grew only two plants and bagged about 20 oz.

But there's too much information floating around that seems to indicate that cannabis inflames coronary arteries. For those with heart problems, it's likely a bad choice for recreation. But the jury of research results is still out. With so many states legalizing recreational use, the final tally of health issues related to cannabis use should show up in cardiac care units in hospitals and not so much in laboratories. We should all be eager to hear of comprehensive studies with epidemiological and demographic features. In the meantime, and this is my opinion only, we should be wary that cannabis use CAN have negative and serious health consequences. It's growing more likely, although still not a certainty, that marijuana use as a healthy and harmless recreational choice is a myth.
