    Britain to achieve ’skunk self-sufficiency’ by 2010
    986-skunk.jpg The government confirmed yesterday that the United Kingdom is on course to meet 100% of its herbal needs using home-grown cannabis by the end of next year, and may even become a net exporter by 2011.

    ‘This is great news for British spliff farmers, and proves we can compete with Lebanon and Morocco, even in a global downturn’ said a spokesman for the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. ‘We’ve always advocated fresh, locally produced weed, preferably organic,’ said Jim Stone of the Federation of British Blow Growers. ‘What could be more natural than strolling to your local hydroponic farmer, climbing up to the attic, and picking up an eighth? We’re thinking of asking Prince Charles to become our patron.’

    Environmentalists expressed concern about the impact of 6000 watt bulbs burning day and night in every street of the land, but subsequently calculated it would halve the number of direct flights between London, Kingston Jamaica and Amsterdam. They now think the local hemp movement will stall further airport expansion.

    But dealers have complained about being sidelined. ‘Consumers want choice,’ said Dave Price of the Cutters and Rollers Association. ‘If you go to the farmer, what’s he going to have? Just Black Widow? We’ve got the lot here - and it’s fair trade!’

    Please note that the way we post news has changed, because of our main news page. You can find the full instructions here.

    The most important changes are:

    • Articles are no longer posted in quotes.
    • The introduction of the article should be in bold.
    • Images should be added if possible and placed in the article, following the instructions linked to above and here.
    • Information about the article, like link, author, date should be posted below the article.

    • The news forums may contain news articles only
    • Make sure you include all the text from the original article. Don't just post the URL because web pages often disappear or get moved over time. Remove all unnecessary formatting from the text before posting. One easy way to do this is to paste the text into notepad or another text editor first, which will remove any formatting. Also try to remove picture captions, advertisement links and other text that doesn't belong to the body of the article.

    Please be so kind to review your articles and correct this.

    Further it may be good to know that recent articles with the highest thread ratings show up on the main news page. So without ratings, many people will not see it. So please rate news treads.
