You actually referred to a "marijuana garden" and called it by its proper name rather than calling it a "grow." I don't know how calling gardens "grows" started, but I wish news agencies would stop it! We don't call vegetable gardens "vegetable grows." It's just grammatically wrong! Grow is a verb, not a noun. It is irritating to hear it so commonly used. I don't think our local TV news has used any other word but "grow" since it first heard the term, probably from some mental midget of a C.A.M.P. cop who couldn't come up with the term "garden." If the plot in question is too large to be considered a garden, then the term would be "farm," still not a "grow." Again, thank you. Please make it an editorial standard to never use the term "grow" when describing a garden in your fine publication, except in the case of a direct quote. After all, you can't control what terms are used by dumb people. Toni Carrell Gridley - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
