Growing or to grow
Which of the following is a better sentence?
1. I told you many times already, it's a better idea growing marijuana in your own backyard. Or,
2. Replace "growing" with "to grow."
Thanks a lot.
I think "to grow" works better there. Example:
- It is a better idea to grow marijuana in your own back yard than elsewhere.
Re: Growing or to grow
I agree with Ron, but it is interesting to see what happens if the sentence is rearranged.

When switched around, the gerund is the better choice.
