I believe that #3 was said by Michael Pollan (is that the name of the guy who wrote omnivores Dilemma?) during a radio interview I heard when Botany of Desire (?) came out. He was talking about why pot has developed the ability to stone people, because it’s helped it survive, and just in general that all the grass crops (wheat, corn, barley, etc.) wouldn’t have stood a chance against forest if people weren’t always clearing away trees for them. Or maybe that’s obvious.
