All non green weed is not schwag and is not bad. When one gets a bag of bud we don't think about the amount of leaf is involved in growing that bud, whether indoors or outdoors. This material is generally not as high in THC or CBD as its bud. Is it schwag? Back in the day before the first Humboldt County craze there were almost NO green weeds. If you were approached by anyone with any green anything you were passed off as trying to sell "homegrown" or "Shakey Green", and felt that you were basically being ripped off. All good weed was either brown, red, or gold. Only some Hawaiian was green. Remember Acapulco Gold, Belize Breeze, and Panama Red. The term "schwag" has become an elitist, negative, term and is applied to any weed that is not hydro, not grown indoors, and not expensive. First - weed does NOT have to be expensive to be GOOD. Brick weed also has good to excellent quality and that quality IS more expensive when found - again, nothing like the prices of greens. I've set these side by side and For ME, over a 40+ year period, the browns, golds, and reds always won out over green of any kind, no matter what its name or price. Second - "Good" weed is in the mind of the smoker. The fact that a person prefers brown over green is a matter of choice in this good ol' USA still. To say that human is crazy or imply they are less in any way for liking brown over green weeds, derides the accuser, not the accused. The marijuana high is a subjective item and to try to impress your values of what "good" weed is, over anyone else's, is downright un-American. We have the RIGHT, the OBLIGATION as individuals to have differences of opinions that are equally as valid as anyone else's. This is what the medical marijuana push has helped create - to make the feeble attempt at social as well as economic stratification. Why is there no call to have the browns, the foreign exotics like Thai, or outdoor localized US weeds, sold in the dispensaries, too? Remember Chaf Basin, Megs County, or Fallbrook - all examples of what can be grown in the US! All excellent products. Equally as disgusting is the suggestion that brown weed is "blue collar" weed. Here we go with social stratification. The fact is that after a hard day at the job, many of us want a mellow, "down" high, not some zippy, get-up-and-go smoke - we've been getting up and going all day and would like to slow down, mellow out, even nod out altogether. Price is also ridiculous. Why pay 40-50 bucks an eighth for weed that might measure 6 or 7 percent THC. If one is looking at THC content alone not one of these fancy new strains is 8 TIMES the 2 or 3-4% THC content of some of the browns, so why the 8x price? Because indoor growing is expensive, plain and simple. Growers are asking you to pay for their expensive setups whereas the brown weed growers use good ol sunlight - this cannot be duplicated in a greenhouse. We need and have always needed legislation that addressed outdoor growing as well as import. We're missing a Lot of excellent product by being egocentric about green-housing. Naming of the indoor grown weeds is also worthy of note. Even though many of the names are clever and interesting to say the least, for the most part they say nothing about the weed itself. For instance the name "kind" or even "dro" does not tell one anything about the origin of the strain or where and how it's grown or the actual character except in the case of "dro", to say its grown hydroponically. Colombian Gold says what it is. Jamaican Red says what it is. Lets look at something seldom mentioned across the weed spectrum - character. You see reports about the character of these indoor grown strains but brown weed is played down when this is where the REAL character is. Lets realize that many of the local growing and harvesting methods may be "wrong" by hydro standards. This is not to say that any of the local methods are actually "right" or "wrong". This is suggestive stereotyping. Without the local growing methods Thai Stick would not be what it is. Acapulco Gold could not exist. Panama Red would be snubbed. The growing and harvesting METHODS is what makes these weeds great in addition to locale specific variables such as soil and climate that cannot be duplicated indoors. Hash is a great example of this. In order to make the great Afghan products, the plant has to be BROWN. Were this to change, so would the market for the product. In indoor breeding and growing, the other alkaloids, the CBDs have been bred out. These add even more character to the herb and account for some of the differences between indoor and outdoor grown weed. The presence or absence of these is a part of this "character" that enhances our smoking enjoyment. Look at the Malawian product - there is nothing "correct" about packing near dry buds into banana skin rolls. Look at the Brazilian product. And remember Colombian Red?!! Personally I Prefer BROWN over green. MY head likes brown better. You can talk down brown all day and it changes absolutely nothing about these subjective qualities because after 40+ years of smoking I've seen first hand the goodness of the browns, reds, and golds. Some of you younger people might should listen to the Old School - your parents, grandparents, and folks of this age group who can remember when most good weed was not green.
