First off, this post is not about what you think it’s about. If you want information on how to grow your own illicit drugs, head to your nearest head shop. James Wong’s (not to be confused with bong) book, Grow Your Own Drugs offers recipes and tips for remedies that address a wide range of ailments—from sore throats to hot flashes to head lice. Wong says humans have been battling with insects for only a few thousand years. Plants, however, have been at war with insects for millions of years.
