I am a Botanist (And No, I Don't Grow Marijuana)
When I tell people that I make my living in botany, they often guess at what that means. Some have no sense for the word. Others imagine me on slow strolls through meadows, sniffing wildflowers and communing with songbirds.
I also often get asked if being a botanist means that I grow marijuana.
