    Hi guys and gals ! This is something everyone needs to think about .Even if u live in one of the states that has decriminalized growing the feds have not .so u need a way to get rid of evidence quickly .First way to avoid trouble is to avoid it ! That means if u are selling u really should think of stopping .If u are the only one who knows u are growing then u are pretty damn safe Many peeps have been turned in by spouses and friends .and exesThe fewer people who know the better. ..If sharing be very selective in whom u share and u shouldn’t Share while u have an active grow.Now that we have covered avoiding trouble the next thought is what do we do if we think we are on someone’s radar.First of all have heavy duty trash bags on hand heavier the better .trying to get bags out leaking sub the whole way is not a good time ! Pre scout 2 locations to dump it 1 near u and one further out .I have a friend 4 houses down and a site in the woods .2have bleach and paper towels to wipe down with .the garbage disposal can be your friend it will eat fruits up fast .If u have a spouse make sure they know what to do if u need to exit .Never let a officer of the law in your home without a warrant.These things won’t save u from a no knock warrant of course but they might in other circumstances.Any input would be very welcome since I’m sure I have missed a lot.Hope this helps someone at a minimum it makes u feel safer

    Its good to be prepared and knowing who not to tell but dont overly paranoid. Paranoia will get you before any LEO's do. Years ago I kept hearing helicopters over my house and was freaking out. I decided one day to follow the helicopter on the ground to see where its going. What a great plan ! Idid it and followed the helicopter right back to the Helicopter Flight School. The instructor happens to like to fly over my area....lol. That cured my paranoia. Im much better these days.
    Don't be stupid either...you love your hobby and want to tell everyone. DONT...The first thing anyone suggests your growing will be magic mushrooms. This assure you. Share whatever you want to talk about right here on MycoTek.

    Yes I dumped a bunch of stuff including my genetics that I had worked on for a long time over my wife telling the lady at the post office she was mailing spores .looking back way overboard.I stlll haven’t recovered some of those strains.But u should be smart and it don’t hurt to be ready .But I will say driving around with a truck load of subs can bring trouble so that’s a last ditch ideal.

    Oh and growing edibles is a good cover for your other grows.

    Like @redcat said don’t be to paranoid this is a pretty low risk hobby if u are not selling pounds are shooting your mouth off all over town .one thing if u live in a small town like mine news travels like lightning .i guess I should have said don’t throw a gnarly sub with blue mush butts in your garbage can but that stuffs a given.don't be scared people this is an amazing hobby that teaches you much just be SMART! With the research going on hope we won’t be in the shadows much longer.

    Me and my associates all decided last year if uk goes legal we are not joining in, we are staying hidden and keeping the same secrets, operated like this our whole lives and we are not changing cos the man has decided he wants a cut, fuck that, we survived our whole lives without them, with them actively persecuting us any chance they got, UK black market is gonna stay the place you want to score, and those in the know will know from day 1

    Why the fuck would we want to pay higher prices for lower quality, same as happened in Canada? I don't need weed to be legal, my whole life has proved i can live just fine in the fucked up system as it is

    I agree with Bod the man always wants in and then who knows they will try to regulate how to do it and all that great stuff...

    Wifey is on high alert as we are having apartment inspection this week but due to covid pandemic they may shut us back down so who knows... luckily there is a nice compost pile under my back stairs if worst case scenario does pop up... thanks for the tips bud sounds like you have had your share of "experiences" and I would very much like to avoid that...

    Its always uncomfortable when someone finds out and than they are like dude show me how I want to do this... I feel like it's not just for anyone I think the mycelium chooses you to be their bee! Right @GGTBod anyway some people are just too loud about their lives and wouldn't be able to handle the days when you harvest and want to tell the whole world what you have accomplished! Stay safe out there boys!
    Drive fast take chances!

    We gotta really resist that urge to run down the street with a basket full of our first harvest giving them free to the squares to save the world

    Yes that’s exactly what I was trying to say ! Keep a low profile.I don’t have a problem with selling are sharing just chose who u do this with wisely. Problems usually pop up because someone is mad are u are transporting in a car that’s not squared away.

    U are def right @GGTBod i would stay in the dark .The legal pot farmers pay outrageous taxes but can’t put their money in the banks ?My thoughts are as soon as big pharm comes up with a pill that works based on mj the feds will swoop in and confiscate it all .At a minimum they are taking names .But it would be nice not to have to worry .

    The benefits would be like as with marijuana there are soo many new strains... I would like to see psycho active beer on the shelf tho lol! But I couldn't imagine having all that cash and not legally be able to deposit it... also the stealing of a monotub could be more detrimental than someone stealing one pot plant I could assume but some plants get fat flower on them! Anyway not to side track this thread!

    It's good to keep yourself in check as this hobby grows so does all your unusual equipment laying around. Thanks for the pointers dudes I'll just stay in my cave for now!

    We do things that are way out of norm that we have to consider.a nosey next store neighbor def notices the guy washing birdseed and tubs .Im a libertarian I think u should be able to do whatever u want if not harming another but it doesn’t work that way.so we need to consider what we will do if a knock on the door happens.

    Yea our neighbor is the worst fucking lady ever... she almost has to know how many times we have all taken a shit today lol! Lucky the wifey is a avid canner and always drying beans, seeds, fruits and veggies so we stay busy in the Horticultural area enough to not totally seem crazy out there rinsing hay but the popcorn has to be done a little more discreetly... I prefer my popcorn thoroughly rinsed before popping what's wrong with that dont want to wreck my popcorn maker right lol

    its when we laying in bed 4am concocting every possible delivery based scenarior to our place and how and why and what we will answer for.

    I got caught out once good style, courier dropping 75lb bag of whole grain rye off, no extra packaging just the farm sack and labelling saying what it was, courier guy (sweating) asks me what the hell I want all that for, me stoned blank face for 1.5 seconds (felt like a week) and said, I make my own breakfast cereals and just stood there like that was totally normal, then said I dont trust that kelloggs cunt.
