idk if your opinion has changed here but i follow the open cannabis project and have recently communicated with the attorney who represents them because initially i thought his job to be a conflict of interest with the OCP. he seemed like a genuine and nice guy, however i'd be lying if i said my concerns were quelled especially since i see him post patents he recently won in court related to cannabis genetics. while your points i agree with but i fear they are idealistic. capitalism has a way of getting it's way, and i think it won't matter in the long run what the stability is. lawyers are lawyers and they twist rules, regulations and laws to suit them, this is why laws are written so loosely, they want them up for interpretation of attorneys to bicker over. that attorney i forget his name but he is on the OCP instagram page if you look down a bit, but he did at elast set me straight on the public domain part, and i have to agree putting stuff into the public domain needs to happen. i thought i even heard a phylos rep or another breeder say bodhi had submitted stuff to the phylos database. anyway, i wish it was as you said, but (money+lawyers=anything can happen) so to be safe i would enter everything i found into that database if i had the money to do so.
**fyi, when i said you and bodhi were being idealistic a bit i simply mean that i agree it should be the way you said, but we all know what shysty stuff politicians and lawyers have done once they see green rush $$. the state i live in want a 2 million escrow to even apply for a license and they are handpicked non anonymously from a panel of 10 ppl or so. if that isn't ripe for corruption idk what is. big $$ get's laws passed that suit the big $$. so i would avoid using present understanding to assume the plants safety in the future.
peace my brotha, i will one day be paying it forward you can bank on that
