"An imaginary pot farm, come on," says Kerry Huff. "There's just better things to do with your time than pretend to grow an illegal substance."
That's what it is. An imaginary pot farm. A Facebook app. You give the page access to your page and "Hello Mary Jane!" You can create your own pot farm. And the site generates money. You can use your credit card to keep your farm growing, but you don't have to.
"I just think it's a colossal waste of time," says Huff.
Some might agree with Kerry Huff, but many fans commented about the game on our Facebook page. Tereasa Fairchild says, "We grow our pot on there and sell it to Mafia Wars." Stephanie Thompson says I played it for a while, then quit. A game like that should not be on Facebook. It's not a game for kids to play."
A concerned mother I spoke with writes:
"I'm glad you contacted me about this game! I did check it out to see what the game was about and what kind of influence it would have on my children. The game has dazed animals like a bear and rabbit with comments popping up around them like having the munchies and etc. Also it has missions to plant and sell before the feds bust you. Now, at first, I was really worried about this because our kids see and hear enough anymore in school these days. My son who is in his teen years saw the game on Facebook and asked me about it. So I sat down with him on his profile to see how easy it would be to load and play this game. I was glad to see that Facebook denied access to it due to age.
Despite, some negative comments, Facebook fans/ virtual pot growers treat it just as it is.
"It's just a game really," says a Tulsa Community College Student.
