Well, the mantra has been to legalize and regulate it.

Be careful what you wish for.

This.  Also, all of those can be mitigated by cooking.  I'm not personally familiar with any means other than smoking, but it is my understanding that it must be cooked in a fatty oil to be orally active anyway.

Like all other food products, the FDA needs to tell us the allowable percentages of rat droppings and cockroach parts.

Obviously not enough, the DEA firmly believes that you can overdose & die from just 1 hit.

Fark you libtard. Marjuana has been proven to lead to brain damage and addiction. It is also a drug dealers get you hooked on so they can push other drugs.

all of those things are small potatoes, it's the THC that's the real killer.
 
2014-04-28 04:16:06 PM  
At CannLabs, CEO Genifer Murray said there is a misconception that marijuana products have been tested. She said overdoing it on edibles has had consequences. Consumers who ate pot products have been hospitalized with moderate health problems like vomiting and panic attacks.
"You cannot die from a marijuana overdose," said Murray. "But you may feel like you are going to die."

Wolf892: Can you imagine how aweful it will smell in apartment complexes after legalisation? It's going to constantly reek of pot on every floor at every hour of the day.
I hate it. Why can't you people who can't deal with life while sober just stick to alcohol? At least it's harder to smell outside in the halls.


Sounds awe full to me.

Now that I think of it, aren't the crystals on the outside of the plant supposed to be a significant source of THC?  Wouldn't that mean that rinsing the pot would REMOVE a significant amount of the "active ingredient"?

nekom: This.  Also, all of those can be mitigated by cooking.  I'm not personally familiar with any means other than smoking, but it is my understanding that it must be cooked in a fatty oil to be orally active anyway.


No, you could eat raw marijuana and feel the effects.  THC does bind to fats, though.  That is why "pot butter" is a popular medium for edible marijuana.   The THC binds to the fats without leaving too much of a flavor and butter is delicious.

THC binding to fat also causes the "smoke your self retarded" effect.  The chemical binds with fats in neurons and slows the passage of electric current in certain areas.  This is the reason behind using pot as a "treatment" to a bunch of neurological disorders.

I hate to agree and be all 'anti-pot' but yeah, I agree. I personally have no desire to use it ever, and every time I've smelled it (all... five... or so) it's just smelled like skunk. Thanks, but no, I don't really want that anywhere near me. Just the other night I was hanging out on a patio behind a club, and thought to myself... "why do I smell skunk... downtown... in the city..."

Right. Moving inside now...

Sort of? The primary chemical contained in MJ is THCA, which has to be decarboxylated to THC to become orally active at around 170-200 degrees for awhile. Doing this in an oil also extracts the converted THC.

Either way, you're 100% right. All of these things show up any time you're dealing with eggs or dairy. This isn't anything new, you see the same thing at just about every dairy.

ZAZ: Can you label pot "organic" without getting in trouble with the FDA?


USDA organic certification is probably impossible, with pot being illegal federally.  There may be some state organic certification that is possible, maybe in Colorado.  If a product is labeled organic, when no certification was given, the grower could certainly get in trouble with the USDA and FDA for false labeling.  I say, if they don't have certification then throw the book at them.

How many people are getting labeled pot?  No label, means no problem.

I used to hate the smell, until I tried it, and even though my experience with it was awful, I can actually appreciate the smell now.

Negative, you can't. The plant contains very low amounts of THC naturally, it does however contain THCA, which is the precursor. You then have to heat it to decarboxylate it into THC, which is then psychoactive. THCA on its own is good as an antiinflammatory, but that's about it. There's no other real effects. Cooking in oil not only extracts into a fat, but it converts THCA into THC.

You can also use a dry decarb by grinding down to a powder, putting it in the oven for an hour at 200 degrees, and then throwing it into some everclear to make a tincture.

Don't believe me? Take raw MJ, grind it to a powder, and try eating it. You'll be very disappointed with the results.

FYI, you could have the same problem with vanilla beans when vanilla extracts are made. Or almond extract. Or fruit extracts.

Usually the things that look nice in their whole form get sold whole. The ones that don't look so nice? They're the ones that get processed.

There's something to be said for familiarization; I used to hate beer until someone paid for a whole lot of it for me. Free drinks = I drink it...

I try to avoid further such adjustments at this point. Too many things I like that are bad for me.

Pot brownies always sounded like the point where you'd find ODs. You start with one and you don't feel it so you reach for another, then you get hungry and hey, there's brownies! At least inhaled doses require coordination. It's also why drinking goes too far, it's a lot easier to raise a wrist than light a bong.

Why should anyone care what others choose to do with their own bodies?  The ill effects to society (imo) come from the prohibition of drugs not so much the drugs themselves.  If we are so pious in regards to the vain attempt to keep people from harming themselves with evil drugs....where is all the outrage toward:

-alcohol
-tobacco

-sugar
These things actually kill people.

The government has had far more than forty years and has been proven time and again to be liars at least where marijuana is concerned.  I see the enforcement of our broken drug policies and the subsequent imprisonment of our citizens as nothing more than a chance to control the populace and create a prison industry that is more about money and profit than protecting society as a whole.

ski9600: Lol, the growers are probably more anti-pesticide than you are.


Perhaps the smaller personal use folks are, but there have been several articles right here on Fark about how the large grow ops have zero qualms about using some particularly nasty stuff. Which makes sense, they're in it for the cash so they're going to do whatever they can get away with to maximize profits, and since their regulations are pretty much "don't grow pot" the sky's the limit on what they can get away with.
