Default My job is water injected!

Watch my place of work disappear right before your eyes. This greenhouse is my life. I build everything from the liquid cooled HID lighting above to the hydronic heating system(aluminum fins) between the crop of daisies and under the flooding tables. Every system in the greenhouse is automated but I just manually turned on the fog to demonstrate. The fog disperses water droplets 2 microns in diameter to cool the greenhouse and prevent fungus spores from innoculating the leaf tissue

Well actually that may be what we are gonna do. I live near the napa valley and they've been taking measurements of the water table which has been getting lower and lower every year. Also pot is a "problem" in northern california and we've been asked by some authorities to see if marijuana is a host for Pearce's disease, a pathogen that uses the glassy winged sharpshooter as a vector and can destroy a vineyard very quickly. Basically they want pot to be the fall guy for all these problems in the Napa valley

Well working for my lab I've learned to take everything proposed with a grain of salt. We tend to actually carry out only about 5% of what we actually discuss as far as research. This has been on the table for about a year because we didn't have a secure enough facility to run the experiments. We do now and we have a ziplock bag full of seed so now it's an issue of getting the grant money.

As far as I'm concerned though I think it would be pretty stupid of them to think that an illegal plant's physiology and the countries drug enforcement policy will agree with each other. A similar blow to the surgeon generals recommendations on smoking pot happened just last year in a UCLA study which completely exonerated any claim that smoking it leads to higher incidence of cancer.
