Pitt, and M
ng came the idea of SOG,
which is also called Sea of Green.
A SOG set-up can be any size but must maintain a certain
overall shape. First of all you need to grow some plants normally first.
Wait until you see flowers and then select the nicest female you can
find. Take cuttings from this female mother plant and grow the
cuttings out until they have roots. When you do take multiple cuttings
try to create as many plants as you can fit into your grow set-up. In
SOG grows we are looking a 1 plant per square foot or even one plant
per 0.10 square feet. So that should be a good estimate as to how many
clones you will need. Now, we want to look at pots here first. What we
really need are tube shaped pots or pots that have a longer depth than
width. You can make these yourself or buy these pots in the store. All
we want to do is pack in as many pots with plants as we can into the
SOG grow chamber. It is just a big cluster of pots with clones. The
clones are planted all at the same time. No more new plants are
introduced into the SOG grow room. When they have reached your
desired height (keep it small), they should be flowered. Because the
clones have been taken from a mother plant, the clones will carry the
age of the mother plant with them. Since we took them from a
flowering mother they will start to flower as soon as we start 12/12.
The final harvest result will be a full canopy of bud, hence the
name Sea Of Green. Because you are using clones you only have to
grow the clones out for the remainder of their flowering times. This
means you can have a large bud quantity turnover ever 2 months.

This is like a SOG (Sea of Green) grow except fewer plants are used in
conjunction with a screen to fill the grow area out with heavy top
colas, hence its name - ScrOG (Screen of Green).
This screen is simply a large wire mesh put between your
light and the plants (Figures 8.1 and 8.2). Again clones from a female
plant are used like in the SOG method, but we allow at least 1 square
foot per flowering plant in the ScrOG method.
The plants are not flowered until as such time as they have
covered the entire mesh with green. As the plants grow up through the
wire mesh they are trained and worked around the netting to form a
very even canopy. The top colas and side branches are all trained
under the screen.

There are many variations of the above two methods. They all
still contain the same principles. SOG and ScrOG's were originally
set-up to get the most out of poor quality fluorescent lights. Today's
growers (since HID's came along) with a 600 watt HID bulb have
literally taken these set-ups to a new level.
The veteran fluorescent user would line the roof of the shelf
or the box with fluorescent tubes to try and get the most out of their
grow with this method. Now with HID lights
| e laws is exceptionally complex, and some will be changed shortly. By far
the best review of existing laws and their social consequences has been made by Kaplan in his recent
book, Marijuana, the New Prohibition (1970). Smith's (1970) book also contains excellent discussions
of the social issues revolving around marijuana use.
EXTENT OF USE

In spite of the severe penalties attached to possession and sale of marijuana, use today is very
widespread. Given the sorts of pleasurable effects reported later in this book, it seems likely that use will
continue to increase.
No definite survey of incidence of use can be made because there is always a (realistic) tendency of
wary users to deny their use. Nevertheless, a large number of surveys of drug use on college campuses
have been made (Kaplan, 1970; Pearlman, 1968). It is now a rare college campus that does not have a
significant number of marijuana users and on many campuses users themselves estimate over 50 percent
of the students use marijuana occasionally, primarily at social events. An unpublished study that I
carried out in collaboration with one of my graduate students, Carl Klein, found that from 1967 to 1968
the percentage of students who used marijuana at a conservative West Coast university doubled, and
various formal and informal estimates of that population since have confirmed that a majority of the
students have tried marijuana. (Further details of this study are presented in Chapter 28.) This seems
typical. Drug-education programs sponsored by schools and government agencies are viewed with scorn
and amusement by users since their own and friends' experiences with marijuana convince them that the
instructors are ignorant or lying. This is an unfortunate effect, as the attitude may be generalized to
warnings about drugs that really are dangerous, such as hard narcotics and amphetamines.
Marijuana use is by no means confined to college campuses. In a survey of young adults (eighteen
and over) in San Francisco, Manheimer, Mellinger, and Balter (1969) reported that 13 percent had used
marijuana at least once. Conservative estimates in the press usually figure that several million
Americans have tried marijuana, although it is not clear how many use it with any regularity.
Difficult political, moral, and religious problems arise when an act generally condemned and illegal
spreads at such a rapid rate. This book is not the place to go into them, but the interested reader will find
some good discussions in Aaronson and Osmond (1970), Krippner (1968), and Kaplan (1970).
Leaving aside considerations of social and political problems, what sort of reliable, scientific
knowledge do we have about the effects of marijuana? What do users experience that makes the risk of

360° perception rather than 180-200°. I am
now conscious of what is actually behind me.
A 22-year-old clerk reports:
Once on an acid trip in an apartment in San Francisco, a friend and I changed places. I was inside
his head looking at my body and my face and hearing my voice when he talked. He was looking
from my body into his face, and when I spoke it was with his voice.
As a final example of OOBE phenomena, a 44-year-old psychiatrist reports a fairly frequent sort of OOBE
that involves "visiting" a sort of world that is clearly unlike the known physical world:
I left my own body, went into "another dimension" (?), where I found other people, all young (I
was 42) playing games of "switch the body"—an experience like taking off your clothes and
playing in the nude—very freeing—seemed somewhere in outer (or another) space.
Several background factors, which affect the reporting of OOBEs, are noted in Table 10-2, with significance
levels for the obtained distributions.2

Fewer males tend to report OOBEs, but of those who do, multiple experiences are more common than with
females. The Therapy and Growth group tends to report both more OOBEs and more multiple OOBEs overall.
Similarly, there is a suggestion that Users of Psychedelics tend to report more OOBEs and more multiple
OOBEs than Non-users

An infrequent phenomenon possibly related to OOBEs is "I have lost all consciousness of my body and the
external world and just found myself floating in limitless space (not necessarily physical space)." This is dealt
with fully in Chapter 11.
Although OOBEs are well-known in parapsychological literature as occurring "spontaneously" (in the sense
of cause unknown) or being caused by serious accident or illness (Crookall, 1961, 1964a, 1964b; Eastman,
1962; Green, 1966; Muldoon and Carrington, 1956), the majority (73 percent) in this sample were in
conjunction with marijuana intoxication or LSD use. More than twice as many users (38) indicated that their
OOBEs began after they had started using marijuana as indicated they started before (14), a highly significant
