We had unique opportunity to visit Breeder Steve (Spice of Life) back in 2003 and see his Switzerland grow factory.
Come back to golden times of Switzerland, Lugano, where cannabis was tolerated at the time (almost as liberal as Dutch policy). Government proposal in 2001 introduced unique law reform of narcotics act exempting personal cannabis possession and use from any penalties and also allowed some cultivation and trade for personal use under certain conditions, including provision for licensed retail outlets.
Cannabis was sold by ounces in tea bags in apothecaries as „tea“ ,„dried flowers“ and herb-filled pillows … It was ideal place to produce seeds also…
In Lugano we have been welcomed to Breeder’s Steve factory. Steve was accompanied by Barge, cannabis photographer and Julio, cannabis activist from Mexico. Because we arrived in autumn it was after harvest, so we didn’t have a chance to see his greenshouse operation, only indoor and harvest processing. Number of plants in factory required continuous work with Steve selecting and managing the work for his comrades.
