Here's another typically inane and clueless CNN report (actually this one was interesting, if not totally promoting the interests of the Federal government):
- "The marijuana coming across the southwest border, traditionally a source of low-potency drugs, has increased in strength from a median potency of 4.8 percent in 2003 to 7.3 percent in 2007."
- "As a consequence, inexperienced or young marijuana users may be more prone to overdose, federal officials say.
It's pretty much universally accepted by everyone that's ever performed a study that it's impossible to "overdose" on marijuana, unless the person ate their body weight in weed several times over in a short time span.
When you work for ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc, it's pretty hard to avoid systematic propaganda when your corporate parent is as dependent on the status quo as your big brother federal agencies, dammit.
