I'll agree, in the long term, that the objective here is to monetize the situation somehow, but again, the question is still how can they effectively limit the transmission of the product. The military would *love* to have the ability to claim these things as weapons in their stockpiles, and as always they'd play with the value. It is just that the most fertile field from which the harvest can be made is very unlikely to want to be farmed, rather more likely to scatter the results like wild oats.
