High Times challenges Ole Miss to marijuana potency competition
Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
High Times, a publication for marijuana enthusiasts, reported this week that the University of Mississippi claims to have tested a strain of cannabis that registered 37 percent THC, or tetrahydracannabinol, the intoxicating chemical in marijuana.
That's a higher THC level than any they've tested.
The magazine got the information from CNN’s premiere of Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s documentary “Weed.” In it, Gupta “cuts through the smoke and travels around the world to uncover the highs and lows of cannabis.”
High Times said their lab tops out at 25.49 percent THC.
“No strain we’ve had tested ever came close to 30 percent THC,” High Times writer Danny Danko said. “So, we’d like to challenge the University of Mississippi to reveal the method and results of their testing (or at least tell us the name of the strain with 37 percent THC so that we can, um… further study it).”
The magazine also invited the university to enter their Seattle Cannabis Cup Sept. 7-8 to compete with other high potency strains.

Seattle cops to hand out Doritos instead of tickets at annual marijuana festival

SEATTLE — A few things will be different at this year's Hempfest, the 22-year-old summer "protestival" on Seattle's waterfront where tens of thousands of revelers gather to use dope openly, listen to music and gaze at the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
The haze of pot smoke might smell a little more like victory, after Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize marijuana use by adults over 21. Having won at the state level, speakers will concentrate on the reform of federal marijuana laws.
Oh, and the Seattle police — who have long turned a lenient eye on Hempfest tokers — don't plan to be writing tickets or making arrests. They'll be busy handing out Doritos.
"I think it's going to be a lot of fun," said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb, department spokesman and junk-food-dispenser-in-chief. "It's meant to be ironic. The idea of police passing out Doritos at a festival that celebrates pot, we're sure, is going to generate some buzz."
The idea isn't just to satisfy some munchies. The department has affixed labels to 1,000 bags of Doritos urging people to check out a question-and-answer post on its website, titled "Marijwhatnow? A Guide to Legal Marijuana Use In Seattle." It explains some of the nuances of Washington's law: that adults can possess up to an ounce but can't sell it or give it away, that driving under the influence of pot is illegal, and that — festivals aside — public use is illegal.
