Vermiculite ILLEGAL in New York, WTF
    #3423499 - 11/29/04 04:53 PM (12 years, 12 days ago)

WTF I went to Home Depot to pick up a bag of Vermiculite cause I was thinking of growing shrooms plus I was going to use it for the spring when I grow the pot, they tell me it's Illegal, and then I went to a local garden store and they said the same thing, what the hell?

Good Ole New York strikes again. Guess they made another thing illegal now, jesus we cant even light off firecrackers here without getting hauled off in the police car.

Gotta love that Pro-freedom eh? The freedom to take Freedom away. (Rights is what it should be called b/c those u can take away...whats the Patriot's act you say?...un-huh..)
I Hate the United States Of America. We've stooped so low and become so paranoid that we can't light firecrackers off, we can't have Vermiculite in New York, We can't get on a plane w/o being treated like terrorist (and then they give us a fork and a knife later, For dinner of course!) and where else can you sue a company for selling you coffee that's too hot? That's right, only in America can it be done and only in America can you weigh over 400lbs. Crazy world. Well if I was you I'd move or go with the grains. Gl and stay safe and as free as you can be.

Funny thing was I actually walked up and down the isle with this one employee, and we both couldn't find it, and he said that he didn't think they carried it cause it could be used to make bombs LOL. So he asked his supervisor and that was the guy that said that it was illegal, he was like 55 years old and seemed pretty serious.

I have a hard time believing it is actually illegal in NY. I bet they thought you were talking about something else. Just get it online if they keep giving you back talk. Say "give me my damn verm". jk

I've heard there is a type of vermiculite that has asbestos in it, thats banned. The other kind is not.

Did you actually tell them you were growing

pot


? Because if you did, that might be a reason why they didn't sell it to you. It's too hard to believe that vermiculite is illegal anywhere.

verm itself can't be illegal, it's mixed into at least twenty other products in that home depot as a water retainer. he's just fucking with you cause he thinks you grow pot, I used to invent "state laws" all the time to get out of taking returns when I worked retail

Sounds most likely. People definitely will fuck with you if you tell them you're doing something illegal. King, that is a good point that verm is mixed into plenty of other products, so it becoming illegal would be a pretty big deal. I think we would have heard something about it.....

I tried googling it and only came back with one result and it was a shrooomery post.....

Seems legal to me.

Around here, Home Depot doesn't carry vermiculite. They just don't. Never heard of it being illegal anywhere. Pretty ridiculous.

And I doubt he was dumb enough to tell them what he wanted it for.
