Exclamation CAPZ THEY'RE KILLING PEOPLE

'Dabbing' the new drug of choice for teens?

€˜Dabbing:€™ Dangerous New Drug Seized in Maryland - Police & Fire - Towson, MD Patch


It's made with deadly neurotoxin butane and degenerate making marijuana!



......

Why is this allowed as news..?
Are people this dumb?


(Just so you know, nothing in either of these articles are factual, it's more of a reefer-madness type deal)

"News Flash!
A deadly new trend has hit the streets of America.

It's called a 'spliff', and it is made by mixing the mind-numbing narcotic known as Marijuana with a known carcinogen!"

This kinda crap is just a last ditch effort by those with a vested interest to keep weed from being legalized across America. It ain't gonna work.

..On second thought, spliffs probably are more harmful than BHO so I'm surprised we haven't seen a headline like that. Or maybe we have, I try to ignore reefer madness news as much as possible.

what ....in idiots. What teenagers can afford to dab? BHO is crazy expensive, and pretty damn hard to come by without a medical card.

It's a new trend in the world of cannabis, and of course only teenagers smoke pot right?

Never understood, aside from a taxation point, how Marijuana is illegal but alcohol is open to anyone of age. I would be much happier if my kids smoked pot instead of drinking when they get to that age. That reefer madness crap never gets old.

It is? It's like $35 a gram here which lasts forvever.

I wouldn't be suprised if there were some negative effects from BHO. Not everyone makes it properly and completely purges all the solvents from the wax. I've heard of a few people getting collapsed lungs from the smoke expansion in their lungs after trying to take massive dabs too (something in THC causes blood vessels in the lungs to dialate. Not a problem with straight bud but when you're pushing 90% THC with BHO it's possible to really have too much of a good thing).

I just feel stupid and panicky after dabs. Not fun at all

I'm all for letting adults put whatever they want in their bodies, but if some good $60 an eighth weed isn't cutting it for you anymore, it's time to either put down the bong for awhile or move on to some other substance to get you the buzz you're really after.

I don't know what is wrong with the kids these days. Coke pot and booze were plenty good enough for my generation.

The oil back in the day was nasty. The stuff these days made from high quality bud is so tasty

The premise, being a concentrate, is that you don't have to buy much. Butane isn't all that bad for you.. Should be free of the solvents anyway.

My intent was to show these "news" articles because they're just kind of funny IMO

Also, there is always a buck to be made scaring mindless parents ....less..

One thing I have come to realize is that a lot of people just read the headlines and think they got the "gist" of the article.

Honestly though when you combine alcohol and drugs with teenagers, it's a recipe for disaster. Not all of them will become addicted or do really stupid things but you can't know who will. I think parents have a right to overreact, especially if some of them have been through similar situations.

Indeed. I should have a headline of "Satan Has Come to Earth!!!" and have the actual article be about a habanero and cheese pizza that I named "Satan" because of how hot it is.

The religious nuts will lose their .... about raptures and whatnot.

Well the government has tried to make alcohol illegal before, too. It didn't go over very well.
