  1. A GREAT PIECE OF WORK. MY UNCLE, AN ORGANIC HORTICULTURIST IN THE 1950’S WALES SAVED HIS CIGGARETTE BUTTS FOR USE AS AN AQUEOUS EXTRACTION EFECTIVE AS A HAND SPRAYED INSECTICIDE ON HIS 5 ACRE GARDEN. HE STOPPED SMOKING WHEN HE OBSERVED HOW EFFECTIVE IT WAS. USED OTHER PEOPLE’S BUTTS INSTEAD. TOO BAD HE DIDNT MEET SEGOLINE. THEY HAD A LOT TO TALK ABOUT.
