The DEA on 12/14 published their intent to schedule "marihuana extracts" ("marihuana", seriously, as if it's the 1930s) under schedule 1 of the federal drug code. Anyone who spells it "marihuana" obviously has no idea what they're talking about.

"Marihuana" and "ISIL."

Do these agencies think they impress us with arcane terms, or are they exhibiting their lack of modernity and connection to reality?

It's well documented that the chemical make up of marijuana today is far more dangerous and powerful then even 15 years ago.

Provide the documentation...

All you posted is an article claiming that weed is more potent than in the past, which is like comparing beer and vodka. They also had some issues about contamination, which is more of an industry regulation issue, not an issue about marijuana itself. The other thing is just a list of the already known effects of marijuana. What point are you even trying to make?

All of those side effects have nothing to do with the potency, which is your supposed issue. More potent pot just means people will smoke less and lessen the respiratory issues...

Show me the documentation, which you claim there is a lot of, that marijuana today is more dangerous than in the past.

I think you better reread both articles and the go to the NIH and ask

That's not correct either because they unfortunately build up a tolerance just like an alcoholic

Your articles don't say anything about a higher tolerance or higher dose being more dangerous.

Your sources certainly don't say anything is more dangerous because it's more potent.
