"Since it should be abundantly clear that Safarras and the other plants mentioned in Rhodium do NOT contain any extractable safrole (both cited in Rhodium and tested by many on this board)"

WTF?  Sassafras root bark contains NO extractable safrole?  Cited where, exactly?  Maybe you mean it's impractical to do it in your back yard in commercial volumes, but it's a great way for the hobbiest to dream up a lifetime's worth.

Edit:  Then again you said "Safarras" which to my knowledge does not exist on this planet - so yeah, it probably doesn't contain any safrole.
