Sources have indicated that not only is the patient base tired of only having 4 producers to choose from, the patients grow wary of shabby products. It’s claimed that some are grouping to discuss a possible class action suit against the DCP and the state’s 4 medical cannabis producers. If that ball starts rolling you can bet many more will hop on that band wagon… Why? Mold. 1 of those 4 producers is being sued in a multitude of states over this issue. I’ll let you do your own research on whom. I’ll give you 4 guesses.
I won’t be posting any of the documents because I want you to do your own research on this and draw your own conclusions. EVERYTHING can be found online with a small amount of effort. However, once you find them, you may be shocked. This has the patient base up in arms. None of the officials will speak on the issue.
Documents can be found which shows that the State of CT raised the levels of mold allowed in the products within the medical marijuana program. Multiple products can be found with increased levels of mold. But because they are below the new levels, that means it’s okay for the patient base. Right?
What will ingesting moldy weed do to you?
There is no Scooby Doo mystery here. Moldy weed is dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Smoking or vaping moldy cannabis may have a different affect from consumer to consumer. Some of the dangers that could be encountered due to consuming moldy weed could be sinus pain or congestion, fatigue or muscle weakness, brain fog (Granted that excessive amounts of THC can cause someone to feel a bit foggy however there is a big difference between that and actual brain fog. Brain fog leaves an individual confused, disoriented, or with a complete loss for words), chronic coughing, chest pains, fever, and in some cases mold balls(this is definitely something you never want to have happened to you. If you weren’t careful and you were consuming large amounts of moldy weed, the fungal spores that you inhale can form “snowballs“ in your lungs. This results in the forming of mold balls that actually need to be surgically removed. This can lead to pneumonia and even death).
So as you can see there’s quite a few risks that go along with smoking moldy cannabis. Plus if your immune system is compromised in any way it could get even worse than what is stated above. No buzz is worth any of that nonsense and once the weed is contaminated, there’s no turning back. Just chuck it.
Why would the state raise these levels? Any of these levels would have lead to a failed product until recently.
Why would both the state and producers find this acceptable for patients?
It would seem that many are inquiring about the same things…
