Moldy weed is no different than spice imo. Don’t need no extra foreign bodies on my herb. Now, sure, back in nam’ we have all done the nasty schwag dance. If you bought a bricked ounce, you had 3 grams of mold easy hahahaaha. I think no mold and mildew is basically a baseline deal. Meaning it should be treated like a standard. Some folks care, waaaaaay more people don’t I bet, throw a few racks of loot in the equation and watch how many will all the sudden be willfully blind…..I dunno, I’m stoned. 😂
You’re always stoned!😆

Loaded question but I think it has more to do with how much PM we are talking. If its minimal then it is negligible. If its covering a significant portion of the product then maybe a bit more unethical. Also there have been no studies on the effects of PM to the smoker so its a tough question whether it even has and effect on humans. People just don't like the word mildew or mold and automatically think the worlds ending. Unethical? maybe to some degree. Never understand how people get their gardens so out of whack. I keep a mixed bottle of regalia for pm and bug deterence always on deck. havent had a problem in at least 5 years.

I think most the people who don't care either haven't grown, or they're growers who are purely cash croppers who justify it by whatever means, as long as they are getting paid.
Agreed 100% on that buddy

You remind me of the grower I was having this debate with, thanks for your input.
I do agree with your assertion that there aren't many studies regarding combustion and inhalation of microbial contaminates in cannabis, that said there are quite a few studies that examine combustion and inhalation of microbial contaminates in tobacco and the health risks that come along with it, at least enough for me.

Here's my shit...it's one thing to give it away but SELLING it knowing it had powdery mildew is fucked up any which way you look at it.
I don't have a problem with people selling it as long as the buyer is made aware beforehand that the product has PM and they are aware of what you sprayed to combat it.
Now in a dispensary situation nobody would do that because they know the majority of people would be walking out the door as quickly as possible.

It’s already been said

As an early 80s kid that grew up smoking Mexican “Earth” weed. Brown, compact, jammed full of seeds… sometimes roaches . Like dead dead cockroaches . For real

I get that as a grower you want and appreciate clean, weed .

Generations have smoked some sketchy stuff ✌️

I have older friends with lung issues who never smoked tobacco, makes you wonder, guess we won't ever really know how that stuff impacted peoples long term health.

Ok if you had the choice of buying weed with mildew and weed without which would you choose? 😂 that's the better question. You posed an ethical question for debate so there will be some nos there as well. Not everyone thinks alike. It's what makes us beautiful.

Good point I should cross check tobacco studies and see whats out there. I know the direct effect of buyers seeing mold on one out of 50 or whatever. They will want to go through every single one to verify. It has a huge impact on what can and cant find a home. But it goes without saying that nearly everyone has a negative view on PM which is rightfully so. Who knows ha
