104. Ahhhhh....but who ever thought, except in Europe, the Middle East, southwest Asia, and Asia,
that

WATER

--a once basic and free commodity--could be sold in bottles to people, once upon a time???

Believe me, when they finally get off their asses (and we'll be last, we always are) the government will find ways to help industry get a lock on the product--they'll either issue licenses, convert the tobacco making facilities to cigarettes of a different sort, come up with flavors, jazzy marketing...you name it. They'll make it JUST cheap enough so that the growing of it is more troublesome than it is worth. You'll pop down to the liquor store for a five pack of the product, nicely rolled and hermetically sealed.

Hell, if the Coca-cola company can sell you tap water and call it "Daisani" (what does that mean? Why nothing!! Sounds a bit Asian and Clean, though, dunnit?) then someday Phillip Morris will come up with Doobie Dudes, or Kite brand (as in high as a) filter tipped kings...

I am sure the people who could use the plant's medical benefits would be happier if this would happen sooner rather than later.
