How Safe Is Super-Concentrated Marijuana?

Recommended Posts

Once again, personal freedom requires personal responsibility. If you can't handle high doses of thc then don't do high doses of thc.

 

I am beginning to believe that maybe the government does need to step in and regulate the strength of recreational cannabis. High strength concentrates may need to be restricted to certified medical use only.

Why not just hire a nanny to take care of you and remind you how much medicine to take?

A 13-year-old Benzie County boy with concentrated THC in his system was treated and released from the hospital.

He smoked dabs.

The Traverse Narcotics Team describes dabs as highly potent THC paste extracted from marijuana.

Troopers from the Cadillac post say they were able to find the supplier.

After searching a home, troopers found dabs and other related items.

A 13-year-old being hospitalized for using dabs may be shocking, but Child and Family Services of Northwest Michigan say they help kids of all ages with substance abuse.

 The best thing parents can do is seek help one way is to call their Third Level Crisis Hotline at 800-442-7315 or text at 231-480-0292.

Child and Family Services of Northwest Michigan’s Marketing Specialist Amanda Elliott says, “It's not necessarily asking why did you do that, but what happened to you that made you want to use drugs, trying to find what that underlying cause is instead of just putting a Band-Aid on it and hoping that they don't do it again, finding a long-term solution for it.”

The supplier was not arrested, but state police say charges are being sought through the Benzie County prosecutor.

Why would you want more rules and regulations? Seems to be far from what most of us want.

I do understand "dosage" information though.  There is a difference between doing shots of everclear and shots of Schnapps aye.  There just needs to be some type of general dosage determiner so people can make informed decisions.

 

This isn't for anyone round these parts of course.  But when legalize hits,  serious n00bs will be trying cannabis for the first or close to first times in their lives and do not want to smoke it, so they will likely vape it, good choice, or try concentrates in the varied forms.  There needs to be some kind of basic describer letting people know.

Yeah, 30,000 studies BUT NOT ONE that produced the results that "they" want. That's why they want more. They are really hoping to get some studies that will support their beliefs.

Thank goodness that 13 year old decided to experiment with cannabis and not opioids.

 

I have to wonder however, was he actually in medical distress or did his parents just find him high and then

panicked?

In an attempt to cut down on America’s $74 billion food stamp program, a number of Republican-led states are limiting what families can and cannot put on their grocery lists, compliments of their state legislatures.

 

 

While many conservatives are applauding the effort to cut taxes and increase financial independence and accountability, those on the political Left are criticizing Republican lawmakers’ new policies, FoxNews.com reports. They say the increased limitations amount to state legislatures acting as food police — increasing the financial hardships of recipients.

 

Republicans attest that their new approach is by no means intended to punish or oppress low or no income earners. Advocates of the plan insist that the added restrictions are being enforced to mold healthier eating habits by reducing the amount of junk food that dependents of the state are purchasing with taxpayer dollars.

 

“It’s not meant to shame anyone or be punitive," insists Wisconsin State Rep. Robert Brooks, who is pushing the food stamp bill in his state, where it was cleared the state Assembly last week.

The bill restricts what foods can be bought under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program.

 

“It's the latest effort by lawmakers to put together an approved menu for food stamp users, following a bill in Missouri to restrict benefits from being used for energy drinks, seafood, steak and other items,” FoxNews.com’s Barnini Chakraborty reports. “The catch is any state would need a federal waiver to make these kinds of changes to the federal program, and the odds of that being granted seem slim.”

Brooks doesn’t understand why the government isn’t moving forward with the program.

 

“It would make sense for the federal government to adopt new guidelines but they don’t,” Brooks told FoxNews.com. "It’s important for us to drive the conversation." 

 

“In the original bill, the list of prohibited foods would include crab, lobster, shrimp and other shellfish,...” Chakraborty explained.

Brooks says the plan makes sense and continues to provide adequate help to those who need it.

 

Addressing the problem elsewhere

 

Maine experienced some difficulties back in 2008 when the USDA attempted to enforce similar limitations to SNAP recipients — similar to what happened four years prior in Minnesota.

However, New Blue Interactive CEO Taryn Rosenkranz says that attempts to revolutionize the way food stamps are used on the state level might work better it done differently.

 

“I do think it’s a distraction and a waste of time for us to kind of try to hone in on what’s in people’s grocery carts,” Rosenkranz told FoxNews.com. “You are balancing a lot of things here … of which I am not sure we have all the answers to in order to try to legislate it and legislate what’s in people’s shopping carts. [Legislators’ time would be better focused on the] war on poverty and really try to find ways to help the poor.”

 

Those in opposition to the new restrictions say the new policy discriminates against the poor.

 

“Critics argue attaching strings to food stamp purchases is an unfair swipe at lower-income families,” Chakraborty noted. “They say that other assistance that helps more affluent people like tax breaks doesn’t come with stipulations.”
