He investigated his pastoral resort in the front yard.With his snow-White hair, white jersey and white boomerang snuggle up on his arm, Peron looks like an Hermes ad for a summer suit ---Except for the thumb-The spliff he's drawing."I am tired of the city," he said, as he spewed a cloud of blue resin smoke."It's quiet and the air is clean.We can grow our own food and medicine.It's wonderful."Peron's plan for the farm is ambitious: growing thousands of marijuana in two yearsGallon jars, raise them to the point where they are ready to blossom, and then give them away or sell them to his former cannabis club client at cost.Peron said the patient-Now the number is about 200--Force plants to blossom with special lights, providing a large number of effective "buds" at the least cost "."We run the farm as partners.Said Peron."Basically, everyone earns about $20 a month.We had very little rent and we had a very low fee so we could get through it."Although it is now winter, because his lieutenant, John enzell, maintains a complex indoor planting system, Perun's farm is already producing plants.A thin, fast-Speaking people speak faster only when it comes to passion such as marijuana, entyal le shows the extraordinary talent to grow marijuana."We are working on our own stress, some are good for relaxation, some are good for pain control, and some are good for appetite stimulation ---Cannabis has a lot of genetic variation, "says entyal Le, who is busy in a greenhouse full of thriving potted plants, adjusting the lights and spraying smooth leaves with a spray bottle.These plants are grown in a medium mixed with horse dung, bat bird dung and finely screened soil, all of which meet the strict specifications of entyal Le."When the patient gets one of our plants, he doesn't have to worry about the fertilizer," entyal Le said ."."All he has to do is water it and put it under the proper lighting schedule to force the flowers to blossom."Now, the farm ships about three dozen plants a week to patients around Northern California.But Peron thinks the output will be much larger.He has cleared two acres of land near the messy house on the farm, and he says he will grow marijuana this spring."We will ship hundreds of plants out of here," he said .""Our patients still need their medicine and we will do our best to get them."Peron's indomitable style makes him inconsistent with law enforcement, which claims that his San Francisco club did little to verify customers' medical needs before it closed in last May.But Peron said he had reached an understanding with Rick County Sheriff Rodney K.Mitchell talks about his new move."We were raided last year by federal DEA agents, and some of the sheriff's deputies also took part," Peron said ."."They took some of the plants, but they saw that we were legal under proposal 215 and they have not bothered us since then.Mitchell is a good man--He did not want to spend his time dealing with patients.When Mitchell was told that he had the heartfelt support of Peron, he felt tired and stressed that he did not condone cannabis consumption, medical care or other acts."Dennis tends to exaggerate the facts," Mitchell said ."."The fact is that we all support proposal 215 because it is the law and we will also implement other laws on the illegal possession or sale of cannabis.Mitchell said his deputy did not take any measures against the farm because "we did not provide us with clear evidence of violations ."."If we find evidence of the violation, we will definitely step in.Mitchell said the evidence may include verifiable claims that Peron was involved in the illegal distribution of cannabis or planted plants that were considered reasonable in more than 215.Many of the plants on the farm end up in San Francisco, where most of Perun's former cannabis club customers live.Two San Francisco State University area residents with AIDS, Jim Marley and Harold Torres, are planting several Lake County plants in their apartment.When he and Torres cut flowers from the plants that were ready to dry, Mallett praised the medicinal value of marijuana."We sprout and make brownie cakes with leaves," he said .""It stimulates our appetite so that we can keep our weight and stop the nausea caused by other drugs.We really have trouble without it."Mallett said he and Torres would not be able to afford the marijuana they needed if they had to buy it on the street."Good marijuana now costs $500 an ounce," he said ."Torres and Mallet also like the idea that their flowerpots are grown organically from local farms run by their friends."We go there a lot," Torres said ."."I like to cook for people and work in the garden."As for Peron, he said he had opened a new page."I will never trade marijuana again," he vowed ."."I don't buy it anymore, and I don't sell it anymore.From now on, I plant it strictly.
