Boomers' Marijuana Not as Strong as Today's Pot By Michael Pound
Source: Beaver County Times November 07, 2005
Pennsylvania -- This is not your father's marijuana. Or your mother's. And that's the problem. A generation that often viewed marijuana use with a casual eye is now old enough to have kids who may be experimenting with the drug themselves. But their own experiences with pot are keeping them from having an accurate perception about use of the drug these days.

Average Pot Potency No Stronger, Study Says
July 1, 2004 - Lisbon, Portugal
The overall strength of marijuana available in Europe has remained stable despite claims from US officials and others that it has increased significantly in recent years, according to a study released this week by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction.

OPED: THE MYTH OF 'HARMLESS' MARIJUANA by John P. Walters, US Drug Czar
01 May 2002 Washington Post, p. A25.
"Parents are often unaware that today's marijuana is different from that of a generation ago, with potency levels 10 to 20 times stronger than the marijuana with which they were familiar."

Drugwar Distortion 11: Marijuana Potency False.

Federal research shows that the average potency of cannabis in the US has increased very little. According to the federal Potency Monitoring Project, in 1985, the average THC content of commercial-grade marijuana was 2.84%, and the average for high-grade sinsemilla in 1985 was 7.17%. In 1995, the potency of commercial-grade marijuana averaged 3.73%, while the potency of sinsemilla in 1995 averaged 7.51%. In 2001, commercial-grade marijuana averaged 4.72% THC, and the potency of sinsemilla in 2001 averaged 9.03%.

Marijuana Prohibition And Potency, Price, And Safety
"Is Marijuana Stronger Than It Was Back In the '60s,
When Everyone Thought It Was Harmless?"

Analysis By Richard Cowan (MarijuanaNews note: The prohibitionists like to claim huge increases in marijuana average potency make it much more dangerous today. That is simply not supported by the official data. Amusingly, I found this on the web site of the Swedish prohibitionist propaganda organization, Hassela Nordic Network. Obviously, they don’t understand how devastating this is to the party line. Quite often that is the case. They are blissfully unfazed by mere facts.)

Marijuana: the law vs. 12 million people
Life magazine Oct 31, 1969. 25-35



Is marijuana more potent today than in the past?
Potency is a red herring. Average use today may be of marijuana that is about 2 to 3 times as potent as decades ago but users simply use less to get the same effect with less smoke.  Even 30 years ago, much more potent strains than are normally used today were available, but were seldom used. As with alcohol and tobacco, users generally prefer milder versions.

I dont see why more "growers" dont attack this issue by the US Gov't - maybe because it helps them sell high priced pot? Who knows.

But one thing I do know is I grow a lot of old school strains and they kick ass. Cool

Don't Buy The 'Potent Pot' Hype By Paul Armentano
CN Source: Huffington Post June 16, 2008 USA

Government claims of highly potent pot must be taken with a grain of salt. As is the case with any black market commodity, definitive facts are difficult if not impossible to come by. That said, even by the University of Mississippi's own admission, the average THC in domestically grown marijuana -- which comprises the bulk of the US market -- is less than five percent, a figure that's remained unchanged for nearly a decade.**

Study: Marijuana Potency Increases in 2007

Few Medical Marijuana 'Adverse Events'
CN Source: United Press International June 17, 2008 Montreal

Medical use of cannabinoids from marijuana does not cause an increase in serious negative medical side effects, Canadian researchers said.

Researchers at McGill University Health Centre and McGill University in Montreal and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver said that as the use of cannabinoid medications increases, so do concerns about their potential to cause "adverse events."

Dr. Mark Ware of the McGill University Health Centre said the analysis reported 31 separate clinical studies of cannabinoid medications conducted between 1966 and 2007. Adverse events were categorized as either serious or non-serious; with serious adverse events defined as those leading to death, hospitalization or disability.

"Overall, we found an 86 percent increase in the rate of non-serious adverse events among the patients treated with cannabinoids compared to the patients in the control groups," Ware said in a statement. "The majority of events were mild to moderate in severity."

The majority of non-serious adverse events observed involved dizziness and drowsiness, the researchers said.

The findings were published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Marijuana Is Addictive – So What?
The Stanton Peele Addiction Website, January 7, 2006.

"Thus he adds to his statement, in order to signal to middle-age people that the marijuana experiences with which they are familiar are no longer applicable, “the marijuana that is available today can be 5 times more potent than the marijuana of the 1970s.”"

Research increasingly shows that intensive marijuana use often meets the technical requirements for addiction (or dependence). Analysts use this as evidence of the need to maintain the drug’s illegal status. But the fact of addictiveness is irrelevant to legality – addictive drugs (e.g., cigarettes, alcohol) are legal and nonaddictive drugs (e.g., LSD, Ecstasy) are not. Indeed, the fastest growing category of illicit use is of legal, but controlled, pharmaceuticals – both addictive and not. Addiction is a sideline in outlawing drugs, a label applied conveniently by authorities and cooperating scientists in support of prior policy biases.

I Know – Let’s Really Scare Kids About Drugs! by Stanton Peele
The Stanton Peele Addiction Website, March 30, 2006.

You may recall the famous egg and frying pan ad, “This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?” This was created as part of a series begun in 1987 by the Partnership for a Drug-Free America — a non-profit coalition of advertising, media, and public relations professionals. The Partnership was given $200 million annually by the federal government. Media outlets contributed over $3 billion in free television time, making it the largest and most expensive anti-drug campaign ever.

Marijuana growers must look closer at their crop than the average farmer to achieve a premium product. Rows upon rows of beautiful plants are of no use if they do not glisten with the THC-laden trichomes that are the object of our quest.

David Peel is a New York-based musician who first recorded in the late 1960s, with Harold Black, Billy Jo White and Larry Adams performing as The Lower East Side Band. Though his raw, acoustic "street rock" with lyrics about marijuana and "bad cops" appealed mostly to hippies at first, the sound and DIY ethic make him an important, if little-credited, early performer of punk rock.

Myths and hysteria bad basis for drug laws
Peter McKnight March 31, 2007 The Vancouver Sun

Governments' approach to substance abuse is informed more by superstition than science

On Aug. 11, 2005, the former federal Liberal government announced, to much fanfare, that our current demon drug, methamphetamine, would be upgraded to Schedule I of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, which provides for the most severe penalties.

Three former ministers -- Ujjal Dosanjh, Irwin Cotler and Anne McLellan -- felt the need to be associated with this momentous event. And all made it clear that the change in meth's legal status was a result of evidence as to the harm it causes.

As then-health minister Dosanjh put it, "there are significant health, social and economic harms caused by methamphetamine." Dosanjh neglected to mention the scientific studies that drew him to this conclusion, but his oversight was ignored by the media.

That's not surprising, of course, since the meth hysteria that captivated us then and seduces us still is entirely a product of media myth-making. Science takes a back seat to headlines and deadlines, which makes our communities the captives not of drug habits but of drug hysteria.

That, in essence, is the message delivered by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, in a report released this week titled Comparing the Perceived Seriousness and Actual Costs of Substance Abuse in Canada. continued...

White House Drug Policy.gov * Full Potency Reports/pdf

The University of Mississippi and the US Government's National Institute of Drug Abuse released data based on samples from the US Drug Enforcement Agency, on the potency of marijuana seized in the United States, and it comes with some surprising revelations.

Newspapers around the US have pointed out that the strength of marijuana went from 4.78% THC to 10.54% THC, a massive increase, more than doubling potency. Did marijuana growers get twice as good at growing marijuana over the last year?

What no newspaper mentioned was that the number of seizures analyzed by the laboratory went from 852 in 2007 to 12 in 2008; did drug busts suffer a 99.98% decrease over the past year, or is the DEA picking and choosing samples?

Of the 12 samples, 10 were described as sinsemilla buds, typically, for every other year, ditch weed and seeded bud made up much larger portions of seizures. The conclusion to be drawn from this study is that the DEA and NIDA data has been manipulated with cherry picked data and very low sample size.

Another interesting point of the study is the strength of hashish in the United States, which has apparently suffered a massive decline, going from 28.19% THC in 2007 to a mere 0.26% THC in 2008. Hash Oil declined as well, from 27.17% to 1.35% THC. So, while marijuana is doubling in potency, hash is somehow loosing between 99.95% and 99.99% of it's THC content.

From this study, the only conclusion one can fairly draw is that NIDA, the DEA, and the University of Mississippi are producing fundamentally flawed or intentionally misleading data on the strength of marijuana.

Cannabis Chronicles
...the inside dope on medical marijuana

The T.H.C. level in marijuana is what makes you feel high. “The T.H.C. level we had in marijuana back in the ’60s was estimated at two to sometimes five percent. Now I have recently had a T.H.C. level of chronic, high grade marijuana, at 28 percent.”

This has been stated frequently in the media, and Slate.com had an excellent response to the claim in “The myth of potent pot.” Daniel Forbes explains the method used to come to this... conclusion:

CANNABIS CARBON CREDITS
HEMP versus PROPAGANDA
A campaign was begun to discredit hemp. Playing on the racism that exists in America, Hearst used his newspapers to apply the name "marijuana" to hemp. Marijuana is the Mexican word for the hemp plant. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psycho-active constituent of Cannabis. Associating anti-social and criminal behavior of non-white immigrant labourers with marijuana smoking portrayed them both as evil.

This application along with various "objective" articles created fear. By 1937, these industrialists were able to parlay the fear they created into the Marijuana Tax Act. This law started the demise of the Hemp Industry in the US and the negative effect on the biofuel and many other industries.
