Heavy marijuana use up among teens - Norwalk Citizen
Literally, the fucking captain Richard Conklin is an idiot. If somebody can find his email I would love to email him regarding his dumb comments.
"Unfortunately, the youth sometimes feel that the use of marijuana, that there are no consequences that are associated with it -- that it's a safe drug," Conklin said. "But it's not their mom and dad's marijuana. The marijuana that's sold now is between 10 and 20 times as powerful as the marijuana that was around in their parents' day, in the late '60s and early '70s."
Growers have streamlined the process to produce potent plants through cloning and opting to harvest mostly female plants, which are stronger than male plants, he said. There's also an increasing risk that a bag of purchased marijuana is laced with other drugs, Conklin said.
"You have to worry about the marijuana being adulterated with different things. And in this area, it's very abundant in the use of PCP, moreso than other areas. You'll see marijuana often treated with PCP or heroine, and we see that a lot out here," he said. It's not something teens always take into consideration, Conklin said.

Omg I feel your pain op ..... But I have hope that one day when the true truth is exposed everywhere that every one who went on record to make up their theories on how bad it is will be mocked and use their statement to show how naive they thus destroying their credibility for anything ....
Definitely excited for that day. I get very frustrated with ignorance. I myself used to be very ignorant. I told my friend when he started smoking that it was a waste of time and stupid and blah blah blah.
Anyways, this guy is an idiot and needs to get his facts straight.

But let's look at some of the better parts of the article:
Marijuana use among teens is hardly an epidemic. The majority of high-school aged teenagers still respond that they don't smoke pot.
While one said, "I see it as dangerous," another added that "it makes you do crazy things." But the ultimate reason they said they'd never smoked pot was simple.
"That's not how I raised. You know? I was raised better than that," the athlete said.
Teenagers do not use marijuana in epic proportions. The main reason they do not is because their parents taught them not to.
Teach your kids that responsible adult use of marijuana is mostly harmless. Teach them that underage use of marijuana may put them at a higher risk of certain psychological problems. Teach them not to use it until they are adults. Teach them that alcohol can KILL them the first time they try it, or any time after that if they consume too much. Teach them that marijuana cannot kill them. Teach them that the greatest risk of marijuana use today is arrest and prosecution. Teach them that even where marijuana is decriminalized, it is usually only decriminalized for adults, and that they have a lot more to lose if they get caught as teenagers.
Teach them well, teach them the truth.

Wait a minute. People are selling weed laced with PCP and heroin? Why would you lace a cheaper drug with a more expensive drug, and then sell it at the price of the cheaper drug? And this happens all the time supposedly?
This guy's a fuckin chode.
That's how people get addicted dealers add crack and heroine ...... and it's never as good so we chase the magic dragon ..

What do you want his e mail for? Do you want to ask him out on a date?
I just want to destroy every point he made when being interviewed. Nicely of course.

1000th post FTW!

Even if this did happen, which it doesn't; it would never happen anyway if it were legal. Gas stations aren't lacing cigarettes with PCP.
1000th post FTW!
oh wait, the tobacco companies DO lace the tobacco with chemicals....they admit to it all the time, that they put stuff back in that came out in processing (how the fuck cutting a leaf does that is a mystery to science it seems) and to add more flavors, as we all know, nicotine is FULL Of flavors...why it is the main flavor of tobacco they add back in in massive doses...
ya, there are drug dealers lacing stuff out there, i.e.. the tobacco companies, but tobacco isn't on the black market...
Posted 18 May 2012 - 02:09 PM
But let's use that number anyway, 3% x 10 = 30%..... 3% x 20 = 60%
I have seen CLAIMS of 30% THC in seed seller's ads, but we all know that ads tend to make things sound a bit better than they actually are! And 60%??? not even the breeders of cannabis claim that!
And most drugs added to cannabis are more expensive than cannabis. What happens to the dealer's profit margin? It makes little sense to lace cannabis. Cutting it with parsley or oregano makes financial sense, but won't get you return customers.
Cannabis is safer than other recreational drugs.
Cannabis is safer than most prescription drugs.
Cannabis is even safer than aspirin!

"The survey... found that 9 percent of teens in ninth through 12th grades reported smoking marijuana more than 20 times a month in 2011. That figure is up 80 percent since the 2008 version of the report. "
"Connecticut mimics the national trends as far as what we're seeing, and the reasons vary," said Ingrid Gillespie
, director of the Lower Fairfield County Regional Action Council
"I guess a lot of people just don't see it as bad," one Stamford High School
senior said... He explained that by "bad," he meant dangerous or socially unacceptable.
Oh and I agree with everyone else about the police captain's comment. That was absolutely ridiculous.

NORWALK—A 16-year-old New Canaan girl accused of striking and killing a jogger while driving an SUV in March will be prosecuted as an adult. The charge against her of negligent homicide with a motor vehicle requires she be tried in state Superior Court, rather than Juvenile Court.
The accident occurred the morning of March 24 on New Canaan Avenue. An affidavit Norwalk Police prepared to obtain an arrest warrant for her alleges she was using her iPhone to look at the New Canaan High School website when she struck the jogger, 44-year-old Norwalk resident Kenneth Dorsey.
In the affidavit, Norwalk Sgt. David B. O’Connor says the girl’s iPhone was seized as evidence and given to a Wilton sergeant who is experienced in performing forensic analyses of cell phones and computer devices.
Norwalk Police received a 911 call reporting the accident at about 9:31:26 a.m., the affidavit says, and the Wilton sergeant allegedly found her iPhone was connecting to the high school website two seconds before that. O’Connor wrote that in order for her iPhone to be contacting that site, she would have had to have the phone “in her hand and be pressing keys to enter data into the phone.”
She was also charged with using a mobile telephone or electronic device while driving and being under the age of 18, even if a “hands-free” accessory is available. (No one may send or receive text messages while driving.)
And she was charged with failure to drive in the proper lane.
Dorsey was unconscious but breathing when emergency personnel arrived at the scene, but later died at Norwalk Hospital. O’Connor says hospital records show he suffered head and spine injuries, and an autopsy found he died of blunt force trauma due to an auto accident.
She was arrested last Saturday by warrant at Norwalk Police headquarters and then released on a promise to appear in court.
In the affidavit, O’Connor includes accounts of the accident provided by two motorists, one of whom described seeing a body flying through the air.
A passenger in a car reported seeing a jogger running southbound on New Canaan Avenue, positioned between the curb and the white line that delineates the shoulder of the road from its travel portion.
She was driving a 2001 Toyota 4-Runner southbound when the accident occurred. A motorist who was driving behind her reportedly told police he saw the SUV “suddenly pull to the left back towards the travel portion of the roadway from the shoulder.” He then reportedly said he saw dust kicked up from the roadway shoulder and then saw Dorsey laying on the shoulder.
He reported parking behind the 4-Runner and finding its driver "crying and hysterical."
The 4-Runner was towed to police headquarters and examined by a Norwalk Department of Public Works mechanic. O’Connor wrote the mechanic found no apparent mechanical defects with the vehicle that could have caused the accident.
A person convicted of negligent homicide with a motor vehicle can receive a prison sentence of up to six months or be fined up to $1,000, or both.
She is scheduled to be arraigned in state Superior Court in Norwalk May 24.
Too bad it wasn't you jogging op.

Pot is dangerous in that it affects your judgement and motivation.
I believe it does...so did Nixon after reading the reports that countered the claim it turned people in to crazy heroin addicts out to rape white women and step on whiteys shadow...instead it turned them into peace loving hippies against sending our soldiers into wars in the middle east and asia, oh gawd the horror..so he created the DEA and upped the anti on that pot propaganda...can't have peaceful hippies when THE MAN needs mindless blood-lusting racist drunken nicotine addicts to fuel the Industrial War Machine.
