  1. Quote: Quote: Acrolein concentrations of 2 ppm are immediately dangerous to life 2 PPM is nothing. if those things are giving off acrolein and 2 ppm is potentially lethal than i'd expect people to be dropping like flies at a whiff of one. That said i don't think i'll be taking any chances. Cannabis Culture Magazine is publishing in the May-June issue a look at the transparent papers. Acrolein at 2 parts per million is not hazardous in any way. Acrolein at higher levels would cause nose, throat, eye irritation possibly but is not identified as more dangerous than that.
  2. WARNING for Euro Smokers: Watch Out For Grit Weed!

    England and Wales Flooded with Pot with tiny glass bits! Nationwide health hazard from contaminated cannabis. Prohibition directly responsible. After putting all the major importers & producers of cannabis out of business last summer of 2006, the United Kingdon (Wales, England, Scotland, N. Ireland) government and its ultra secret drug war have caused a flood of hazardous pot to hit the Welsh and English pot markets. The timing clearly implicates the British or Welsh government authorities, by design or by prohibitionist policy, with the responsibility for the dangerous micro-glass contaminated pot, probably sprayed on the confiscated marijuana and then flooding Britain -like the 1985 crack epidemic by the CIA in inner city Los Angeles and throughout USA- to create terror in the cannabis consuming community. The UK government, no doubt responsible for the cause & effect of this terror, further refused to acknowledge the dangerous health impact on hundreds of thousands of British and Welsh working people, poor people, students, the medically ill, young people, all, no doubt, as part of the plan of terror. This is from ITV (Independent Television in Wales, Great Britain). This well researched news piece shows the tragedy of prohibition. Part One Part Two Go to UK Cannabis Activitist here for more shocking photographs of contaminated and hazardous cannabis Here is what the UKCIA say: It used to be assumed that herbal cannabis was unlikely to suffer from contamination but this is no longer true, the workings of prohibition have managed to create the economic circumstances which have lead to the mass contamination of supplies. How did this happen? Before summer 2006 cannabis was readily available due to a number of large scale cannabis farms. Operation Keymer, which was widely trumpeted in the press, either busted them, or more likely sent most to ground, creating a shortage virtually over night. It wasn't long before this shortage was filled from another source, only this time the cannabis was contaminated. How dangerous is this contamination? The answer to that is no-one knows, it's a totally unmeasurable unknown. The only sensible advice is really very simple: Don't sell grit weed?Don't buy grit weed?Don't smoke grit weed The only way to ensure you have pure cannabis is to grow it yourself or to know someone who does. The government's warning is welcome, but of course it doesn't highlight the cause of the problem (their own policy) and tries to use the danger as an argument against cannabis use. Contamination isn't a problem caused by cannabis, it's a problem caused by the law. As contaminated supplies are used as an indication of "success" for the war on drugs, it's clear that the government is happy to deliberately create extra unmeasuarable dangers in its effort to deter use - no other government policy sets out to do that. Yet the health warning was issued because the government accepts it has a duty of care to warn people about the danger it caused. Joined up policy making this isn't! The contamination is a combination of crap,glass, sand, sugar, silicon spray, to add weight. The infidels that do this are criminals who have no interest in producing decent herbs, but making immoral profits. Or worse. Terror in the community. The worrying thing is that this is a ticking bomb. Silicosis is something that will become prevelant in the future. Inhaling small microscopic silica causes it to lodge into lung tissue, and there ain't no way to get it out. This is another reason for legalisation or at the very least decriminalisation. Not everyone can grow and not everyone wants to grow. Legalisation would lead to proper regulation, without which, people are faced with dangers. The situation in the UK is pretty dire. Cannabis production is mainly in the hands of criminal gangs. Whilst in places like Canada, the production is in the hands of people wanting to produce brilliant buds, competing with and trying to out do other farmers. From the UK Guardian of Friday, January 12: Drug campaigners have warned that a batch of cannabis adulterated with tiny glass beads which they say could pose a risk to health has flooded the UK market. Anecdotal reports suggest it is being sold in almost every part of the country. The charity Drugscope is issuing a warning. "We want to make people aware of it from a public health point of view. If you are smoking this stuff and taking it into your lungs it's not good news." .. This site/section combo is not set up to show MPU's -->The fact that "grit weed", as it is being called, is so widespread suggests that contamination is happening at an early stage in the production process. "It seems to be being done on an industrial scale," said Harry Shapiro of Drugscope. The dealers' motivation seems to be to bump up the weight of their product. They appear to be doing this by spraying plants with the reflective element from the paint used on road lines. The tiny reflective glass beads become imbedded in the leaves. "It looks perfectly normal. In fact it looks good quality," said Derek Williams of UK Cannabis Internet Activists, which campaigns against cannabis prohibition. Contributors to its internet forum have said the contaminated leaves can be identified by rubbing them between wetted fingers. The residue will feel gritty if chewed. The first reports of grit weed circulated in late summer, but the groups have only recently received pictures of the beads taken with an electron microscope by an anonymous scientist. There have been rumours of users experiencing a tight chest for days after smoking grit weed, but a spokesperson for the British Thoracic Society said that the contamination was unlikely to be dangerous because the particles are too big to be inhaled into the lungs. An analysis carried out by the French Observatory of Drugs and Drug Addiction found that the glass particles are between 0.02 and 0.3 millimetres across. But Richard Russell, a consultant at Imperial College London, said few particles above 0.015 millimetres would be able to pass into the lungs because they are too big. "It is likely that they will deposit in the mouth or the throat," said Dr Russell. Here they would most likely pass harmlessly through the system. Using a filter would stop them entering the mouth. Dr Russell said that smokers should be aware that cannabis smoke causes emphysema, lung inflammation and cancer. "You are likely to do more damage from the marijuana than these particles." Mr Williams said that the widespread contamination highlighted the problems which stem from cannabis prohibition. "Cannabis is called a controlled drug, but there is no control over the supply side. It's a completely underground product," he said. This is the health warning given by the UK government: "To: NHS Trusts - Medical Directors (England) NHST/FT/007 - NHS FOUNDATION TRUSTS (ENGLAND) - MEDICAL DIRECTOR Primary Care Trusts - Directors of Public Health Primary Care Trusts - Medical Directors Cc (Groups): Chairman - Professional Executive Committee of PCT MHRA Drug Alerts NHS Trust Chief Executives NHST/FT/001 - NHS FOUNDATION TRUSTS (ENGLAND) - CHIEF EXECUTIVE PCT Chief Executives SHA Chief Executives Strategic Health Authorities (England) - Directors of Public Health Territorial CMOs From: Department of Health Date: 16 January 2007 Reference CEM/CMO/2007/02 Category: URGENT (cascade within 24 hours) Title: CONTAMINATION OF HERBAL OR 'SKUNK-TYPE' CANNABIS WITH GLASS BEADS Broadcast Content: To: Directors of Public Health of PCTs to forward to: All GENERAL PRACTITIONERS - please ensure this message is seen by all practice nurses and non-principals working in your practice - Deputising services - Project manager/Nurse lead in Walk in Centres - Lead nurses in PCTs - PCT Pharmaceutical Advisers to forward to community pharmacists Alert - contamination of herbal or 'skunk-type' cannabis with glass beads 1. The Department of Health has recently received information suggesting that batches of herbal and 'skunk-type' cannabis have been contaminated with microscopic glass-like beads (or possibly ground glass). Laboratory testing has since confirmed a number of cases from a number of different parts of the country, in which cannabis appears to contain microscopic particles of glass. We have no information on other types of cannabis such as resin. 2. Reports, unconfirmed, suggest that smoking this contaminated cannabis, has been linked with complaints by users of sore mouth, mouth ulcers, chesty persistent coughs, and a tight chest lasting a few days after use. 3. Government advice already makes clear that cannabis is a substance harmful to health. The risk of glass contamination adds an additional layer of risk of harm. Whilst the exact potential health harm from this contamination is not yet fully determined, inhaling hot glass into the mouth, throat, or into the lungs should clearly be avoided. 4. In the current circumstances, the Department of Health advises that smokers of herbal and 'skunk-type' cannabis, in particular, should exercise caution. 5. For any patients presenting with concerns about their health after having smoked cannabis which may have been contaminated, or who may benefit from opportunistic health advice due to an identified high risk of cannabis use, the following advice may be useful: a) Whilst there are no reported serious health effects to date from this contamination, we are not yet able to determine fully what are the possible or likely risks to the health of cannabis smokers. b) There are anecdotal reports of some cases of the development of sore mouth, mouth ulcers, chesty persistent coughs and a tight chest lasting a few days, after smoking cannabis. c) To avoid the risk of contaminated cannabis completely, patients should be advised to stop smoking cannabis. d) If patients feel unable to stop, they should limit use as much as possible. e) If patients continue to use, they should be warned, if any particular supply of cannabis that they have access to appears to have caused irritation to their mouth or airways, or if they suspect it is contaminated (e.g. due to grittiness when rubbed between moistened fingers), they should stop using that supply, or trading it, immediately; and they should not use any more cannabis from the same source. f) Patients can be advised that self-help assistance with quitting cannabis can be located at the following website: www.talktofrank.com 6. The Department of Health will be making similar information directly available to the public, and to drug user networks, through a range of communication channels shortly after this alert has been sent to the NHS. 7. In addition, as part of the advice made directly available to the public, cannabis smokers will be advised that if they have particular symptoms and concerns about their health after smoking potentially contaminated cannabis, they may wish to discuss symptoms with their general practitioner. If exceptionally they believe they have an urgent problem and cannot access their general practitioner, they may consider they require assessment at an accident & emergency department. 8. As any further relevant information becomes available, the Department of Health will update this advice to practitioners. This document has been authorised by the Department of Health: Gateway reference no: 7708 "
  3. Candidate's cannabis primer

    This is very good stuff, well organized.
  4. CBS links Marc to "Frozen Timber"

    I'd be relunctant to cause a ruckus with CBS. Their 60 Minutes people spent alot of time up here with me. They know I'm good people. They lent footage to another division of CBS News who wanted to spice up the smuggling story. Fine. I was on CNN too, and footage was obtained from CBS. Lou Dobbs had me as a #1 discussion/bargaining chip between Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper and President George Bush. So lets face it, I'm under serious scrutiny and I'm still at large causing political problems for them and I've been called by the DEA (on Lou Dobbs) the largest marijuana producer of all time. That being said, 60 Minutes will be re-running the Prince of pot piece again soon.
  5. CBS links Marc to "Frozen Timber"

    CBS just has alot of footage in their news banks because 60 Minutes is CBS production. I didn't mind being in the Frozen Timbers segment.
  6. Swamp Tubes

    The current Cannabis Culture Magazine (May-June) has a good swamp growing article in it.
  7. In North America, millions of pot smokers find themselves being tested for their use of marijuana in order to get employment, stay out on parole, bail, and other onerous demands of the modern police state. Please tell us your story about how you beat the urine tests and how the products you bought or techniques employed worked.
  8. Post photos of your "No Extradition" shirt!

    You are correct, cannagirl, that is NOT a NO X t-shirt, its a Free Marc t-shirt from my days in jail in Saskatoon.
  9. Post photos of your "No Extradition" shirt!

    Quote: "It was all a publicity stunt to scare everyone." Did you know that seed breeder Neville (of "Neville's Haze" fame) was extradited to the US from ... I think it was New Zealand? That was no stunt. I think he's still in jail. Correct me if I'm wrong. Nevil Schoenmaker of Seed Bank was arrested, in Australia while visiting his wife's family in 1988, at the behest of the US government for selling seeds within the United States. Australia held Schoenmaker for 6 weeks then released him on $50,000 cash bail, and he headed for Holland and has never left Holland since, as the indictment for him is still pending 18 years later.
  10. Show Your Grow in CC magazine!

    Quote: Another Indica from Marc’s VISC Mix. This was not turned purple due to cold temperatures. It is the genetics of the plant. The top image is your perfect photograph. As you know from our pm there are reasons why 15 of 16 couldn't be used in a magazine, but the Vancouver Island purple strain is simply gorgeous, the photo is fabulous in every way. Good work!
  11. Show Your Grow in CC magazine!

    Quote: If all these image tagged pictures are loading things down too much here Jodie, just let me know, and I’ll delete them. Here are some of my better shots. I’ll be getting a very high quality Fuji camera in the next month and I’ll be able to take some very high quality pictures, with proper photo lighting, of the latest strains I’m growing now. I know the genetics of almost all of these shots. So, if these aren’t high quality enough I’ll have some that will be in a few months. Let me know what you think Jodie. Quote: Spectacular bud that should be photographed with studio lights. I'd like to see that. High res digital is OK, (slide quality is the optimum, slides make the only suitable bud covers, but then, we pay $500 CN for a cover quality photo used on the front.), except for cover shots.
  12. Show Your Grow in CC magazine!

    Quote: I hope these are clear enough Jodie, nice pics mrorg, very nice Those pics were taken with the HPS lights on, which taints the usability of a plant photo. Metal Halides and HPS bulbs have to be OFF and proper studio lighting applied. Ideally camera should be traditional looking to produce high quality slides with great lighting and sharp detail over the entire photo. This is very challenging. To print in a magazine we need brilliant clear detailed balanced pleasing photos done in ideal lighting (NO GROW ROOM LIGHTS USED IN THE PHOTO).
  13. The very "IT" place to go right now is DA KINE at 1018 COMMERCIAL DRIVE. 8 - 10 different kinds of pot, bubblehash, pot foods, etc. $10 CN a gram, $30 an eighth, an ounce is $220 CN ($175 US). All good stuff. You can smoke it there. Its just like Amsterdam on Commercial Drive! Visit before John Walters has it exterminated...
