Medical Marijuana Tests Positive for Toxic Compounds

Buyers, beware! Several studies show that marijuana products contain toxic compounds, chemical contaminants and pesticides.  Medical marijuana providers have skipped federal oversight for many years now, making miraculous claims. California introduced “medical” marijuana in 1996, but the state never learned how to test and regulate it.

San Francisco Magazine wrote an alarming article about the findings of Anresco Labs.  Investigators found 80% of the samples tainted with several categories of toxins in marijuana:

Legal pot isn’t safe pot

By Scott Chipman, As legalization of pot ramps up in California what should citizens and especially parents be considering?

Humboldt BHO Explosion Results in Murder Charges

Xavier Renner died from the butane hash oil fire that rocked Humboldt County the day after California’s vote to legalize.  That explosion happened in a Rio Dell   garage on November 9, 2016.  His friends, Aaron Mohr and Aaron Schisler, also had burns on 60 to 90 percent of their bodies.  The landlords and friends working with him have been charged with murder,  although Renner made the choice to experiment with making BHO,  The charges against the landlords who own the detached garage are  extreme.

California cannot control home chemists who make honey oil, also called BHO, the potent extract of marijuana with high THC.   Some people refer to BHO as “marijuana crack.” Continue reading Humboldt BHO Explosion Results in Murder Charges
