The Marijuana Growers Handbook
In 1969, Richard Nixon initiated Operation Intercept, a program designed to stem the flow of Mexican marijuana into this country. The program forced Mexico to use paraquat on its marijuana fields. In similar actions, pressure was put on Thailand, Colombia, and Jamaica to curtail imports to the U.S. Domestic smokers became increasingly alarmed at the reports of lung damage after smoking paraquat-sprayed marijuana. In fact, at the time, Dr. Carlton Turner, currently President Reagan’s Drug Policy Advisor, developed a kit to determine whether the marijuana a smoker had purchased was contaminated.
In addition, infections were reported from smoking imported marijuana which was contaminated by animal feces and mold. In this climate of health fears and supply shortage, Ed Rosenthal and his colleague Mel Frank wrote Marijuana Grower’s Guide, which was the most monumentally successful book of its kind ever published.
Domestic cultivators took the technology found in Marijuana Grower’s Guide and developed their own indoor and outdoor plots, no longer willing to rely on foreign supply. The more the government stepped up its eradication attempts aimed at imports, the more mini-gardens and mini-farms began to develop in the U.S.
In simple-to-understand language, Marijuana Grower’s Guide made experts out of gardening hobbyists. Marijuana cultivation technology has accelerated since Marijuana Grower’s Guide was written. Advances in lighting technology, hydroponics and propagation left a void of serious literature on the subject.
Marijuana Growers Handbook is a completely new book which covers all phases of cultivation, including state-of-the-art techniques. Most experts agree that U.S. growers are the finest in the world. They can get a good yield from the smallest space and have developed hybrids of incredible quality. This indicates that many growers use sophisticated techniques. This book was written to help these people with their gardens, as well as helping novices who are growing for the first time.
This is the complete, unedited Marijuana Growers Handbook, a Marijuana growing classic.
