In this MPSIMS thread, several folks have stated as fact that parents should realize that “pot these days is stronger than when they smoked.” Is anyone aware of any evidentiary basis for this? Since all aspects of the market are illegal, I wonder at the reliability of testing data.
Now, I’m certainly not about to admit any illegal activity here. But “my friend” tells me that when he smoked back in the 70s-80s, he always bought and smoked the best he could get. And it was plenty strong for his purposes, but it was still the manageable pot-high. And on the occasion he has partaken in the 00s, it has always been the best he could get from people who have access to a variety of product in a major market, and it is plenty strong for his purposes, but still the manageable pot high. No noticeable difference in today’s pot being stronger, getting him more fucked up, than before.
Maybe a lot of people were smoking crap ditchweed “back in the day”, and the market has improved such that more folk are now able to get their hands on quality product with higher THC content. So I can understand someone saying “If you smoked ditchweed when you were young, your kid may have access to premium weed that is much better than what you smoked.” But its not as tho the pot folks can buy and smoke today will make your head explode or anything.
At least that’s what my friend says.
