Texas Officials Warn: Marijuana Much Preferable to Fake Marijuana
“It felt like my body was just failing on me,” a teen wrote on Erowid.org, describing the highs promised by synthetic marijuana, the random scraps of plant material sprayed with random chemicals sold in gas stations, smoke shops and on the street as a cheap, and sometimes sort-of-legal, alternative to actual cannabis. In case you think that sounds like fun—don’t.
“My organs were not working any further, it was just shutting down,” the teen wrote. “I began to shake much like someone would during a seizure.”
The serious health risk posed by synthetic cannabinoids are becoming well known, which is good, because they sound like fake news. Synthetic marijuana is believed to be the cause of the “mass casualty event” last summer in New York, when ambulances were dispatched to reports of people wandering around in a “zombielike’ state. Fake weed is causing such a stir in San Antonio, Texas—with first responders responding to eight calls of synthetic marijuana poisoning in a four-hour period on Jan. 26 and users experiencing the same mannequin challenge-winning “freezing (like a statue)” seen in New York, as well as vomiting, nausea, kidney problems and the occasional psychotic episode—that fire officials are showing tacit approval for much-safer, regular, old, outlawed marijuana.

Granddaddy Purple (Indica)
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.

Super Blue Dream (Hybrid)
Blue Dream is a cross of Blueberry and Haze and was bred to provide the body high of an indica and the cerebral sativa effects. Blue Dream is highly effective for pain management without the sedative effects of a pure indica. Effects are long lasting and she has a pleasant fruity taste.
You Can Now Buy and Sell ‘WEED’ on Toronto’s Stock Exchange
In Toronto, Bay Street is Wall Street and now you can buy weed on Bay Street—well, sort of.
Actually make that “WEED.”
Ontario-based Canopy Growth Corp., switched to the new four-letter stock ticker on the Toronto Stock Exchange: WEED. So clever.
As our hard-earned weed legalization efforts here in the U.S. feel like they’re suddenly on shaky ground with so many even shakier human beings taking over the White House, our peaceful, health-insurance-loving and pot-accepting neighbors to the north are seeing their cannabis industry bloom like a fresh green bud.
