Wow thanks for the replies everybody!
I was using TOR for a while but I later read comments that the network has been infiltrated. By using TOR, you are putting yourself into a much smaller pool of folks likely doing shady things, and within that pool are agents looking for people doing sketchy things. Therefore, you may be better off using popular browsers to blend into the ?billions? of internet users doing day-to-day browsing.
I have heard and considered the argument that LEOs don't care about your tiny grows...but then I see shit like this: http://www.informati...n.com/?id=51681and I reconsider. I guess its much like being attacked by a wild animal - its about stacking odds and avoiding being easy prey.
Right! But if you keep everything else in line with what society expects us to live up too its really hard to get busted with psychedelics. Stay away from the hard drugs, register your vehicle and mow your lawn on a consistent basis. Treat your girl right or don't let her into the Loop. Pay your taxes and blend in with society. Don't do stupid shit. Blah blah blah just don't give anyone a reason to suspect or want to burn you, then the odds of getting busted get much lower. Like wharf said earlier don't post more than a small Grow here or there. But most of don't tell anyone but the people that have to be involved if you're manufacturing LSD, that also works well with the lower profile shit too!
I feel like it's about risk management, or if you will, keeping the odds high. The question to ask is: what things can you do to make trouble less likely? Of course, like with pregnancy, the only sure way to be safe is abstinence. But who wants to stop having sex? Wear a condom.
I tend to agree. In a sense, our Western laws do very well at permitting drug use while maintaining order. As long as you don't provide evidence (i.e. keep your drug use under control/incognito), then no one has the right to investigate. Its when you get out of control with it, that probable cause is presented and thus, the opportunity to bust.
And similarly, the points made about being ratted on by someone you know, as opposed to being discovered by the law, is well taken.
But all in all, a friend of a friend completed a stellar mexicana grow that I would really like to share with the community (so he can have his ego voraciously stroked by mycophiles). Obviously the best way not to get busted is not to post anything illegal, Its just so damn tempting! Particularly since there seems to be a large number of people who post photos of illegal grows. Whether or not they get busted, I guess, is not confirmable. Are you all sensing my subtle mind games to get you to encourage me to post?
What about practical information? Scrubbing photos, etc? I'd never post smartphone pics but still.
