Where Is All the GMO Weed?

#Monsanto where art thou? Oh right. We don't need you. Where Is All the GMO Weed?

  • Several long term research projects have tracked data about the potency of cannabis for almost 40 years.
  • A company calling itself High Times Travel LLC (hightimestravel.com) has illegally infringed on the HIGH TIMES trademark to sell travel packages for the upcoming US Cup in Seattle.
  • The increase in THC potency since then is impressive; most domestic cannabis in the 60’s had around 5 % THC by mass, while foreign cannabis (much less common and less likely to end up in the hands of drug research labs) could have as much as 15 %. In the 60’s and 70’s, cheap weed went for around $20 an ounce and had a very mild high, but if you got your hands on some Acapulco Gold or maybe even Thai Stick , a hit or two of that would knock you out for the whole day.

Because it surely isn’t any of us…
