U.S. Military Steps Up Drug Testing for New Recruits
All branches of the United States military will soon hold applicants to same drug testing standards as active service members, according to a memo issued by the Department of Defense.
Starting next month, any person interested in being all they can be inside the trenches of the U.S military will be forced to undergo a rigorous 26-panel drug screen for substances ranging from prescription painkillers to synthetic cannabinoids. The DOD feels that with “the level of illicit and prescription medication abuse among civilians, as well as the increase in heroin and synthetic drug use within the civilian population,” it is now necessary to test recruits across the board.
Agent Orange (Hybrid)
The Agent Orange strain of marijuana is a three way cross between Space Queen, Jack's Cleaner and Orange Velvet Skunk that delivers its wonders within just 55 and 65 days when cultivated indoors. AO is a hybrid mix of Sativa and Indica the develops very heavy buds, coated with white crystals and blazing orange hairs. It smells like stinky cheese mixed with a bit of diesel fuel and various spices. The taste is likewise spicy, yet sweet and full. The buzz is trippy; mixing feelings of calming body stones with energetic mental lucidity.
Simon2Zion: I haven’t smoked in a few days, and this morning it felt like I forgot how to.
Skywalker OG (Hybrid)
Skywalker is a hybrid product of the blueberry and mazar strains. This Indica dominant strain is known to provide above average pain relief, headache management, appetite stimulation and heavy sedation. The skywalker strain is sticky and mildly fragrant with fruity undertones and a flowery scent similar to other indicas. The effects are immediate and last up to two hours.
The One City in America Where Drug War Reparations Are Real
In terms of population, Oakland, California, is just about as equal a place as you’ll find in America. Of the roughly 400,000 people who call the “Brooklyn of the San Francisco Bay Area” home, about 34 percent are black, 34 percent are white, 25 percent are Latino and 17 percent are Asian. If you are about to helpfully point out, “Hey, stupid, that’s 110 percent,” let’s pause for a moment while we direct you here, while the rest of us marvel at the amazing equal-parts-each melting pot! What a social experiment.
When arresting Oakland citizens for drug-related crimes, Oakland police, however, have been not so equal.
They’ve been above average—which, in an America where the drug war has seen almost four black people arrested for non-violent marijuana crimes for every white person (despite equal rates of use) is a bad thing.
