The biggest flaw in your plan is that the government is aware of the
possibility of such a scheme. Try a mail order business where you sell
ordinary hops seeds, and count the days before they show up with a warrant.
Even though hops, per se, is completely legal, it has an unofficial
status as a potential drug precursor, and will attract a lot of unwanted
"unofficial" attention. If your hops seeds ever become psychoactive
because of your botanical eugenics, unofficial will become official
pretty fast. Jason
