Penny wise and pound foolish

My friend and I have been smoking for almost over a year now. We’re sick and tired of having to spend money on weed, and also getting bad stuff and getting ripped off! We’ve decided to grow. I’m already using your web site, but I need a bit more info on the gardening aspect. We are willing to spend a little money but we want to spend as little as possible. We’re getting our seeds from bags that we buy.
Stewy the 4:20 Psycho,

No matter which seeds you use, you are going to spend the same amount of time and energy in growing the plants. With unknown seeds you may be getting the good, the bad or the merely mediocre. Why not spend a little bit of money and go with a known quantity? Aside from the time and energy you are going to put in your garden you will spend some money on it, too. Whether it’s indoors or out, the set-up will cost. Don’t forget to include the gas money.

The most important tool you can get is thorough information on the subject. Dollar for dollar, it is the best investment you can make. Don’t be penurious. Buy yourself a few good grow books. It’s the best investment you can make.
