This blog is not primarily financially driven. We put it up in 2011 to share what we know, to build a community and to learn from all you smart people.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

First, the obvious: We no longer grow marijuana either for sale or personal use. We have day jobs and this site is only a hobby.

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if we interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, we would need to specify this. Ditto if we use an Amazon link that pays us 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that pays us 0 cents. If someone gives us comfy t-shirts with logos and we wear them in photos, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for us and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.

To cover our ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product we use, the following all hold true:







 FTC Disclosure
