Please correct me if i'm wrong, i most likely am, but i thought that only caregivers could have patients, not patients. The OP is a patient, not a caregiver. I was not arguing that it doesn't have to be personal, i was pinting out that if he is having to put in that many hours a week his grow has nothing to do with him being a patient and needing a smoke, his grow is setup on the basis that it is going to make him lots and lots of money. 25-35 hours a week must be what, 75-100 plants or more. My point however, was that for a patient to get cannabis, they can grow it without any work, all it takes is filling up a bucket once a week.
