Too funny - they should sell it with a label stating:

"Warning, consuming this water may cause severe hunger urges and laughter, if symptoms cease, drink more water"

Unless one adds a fat to it.... Oh, like coconut oil? Or full fat coconut milk. I hear that works for a nice tea

I don't know.. it kinda makes sense if we consider how most on the Colorado eastern plains feel about legalization (or the rest of Colorado in general, really)!

Silly plains folk

I don't find this funny in the slightest. I have serious health problems and react badly to marijuana. Exposure to THC could cause problems for me.

THC metabolizes pretty fully in part to the long half life and the amount of time it takes to push it through. Im not aware of studies done on THC itself, but I suspect you will not find any in urine unless you have spirits or oil in your urine (which i would believe is akin to "acute health risk")

THC metabolites might be in the ground water. But if that is happening, i'd think there is a bigger issue relating to urine in the water supply.

Lucky then that the story is bunk, the active ingredient in dope is not water soluble unless it was turned into a powder form and dumped in the well ....

Someone please tell me that the onion pulled a fast one on cnn.

I don't buy into this because my understanding is THC is a non-polar compound, in other words, will not dissolve in water but will disolve in oil.

Saturation in a city's water supply in my opinion is highly(no pun intended) unlikely.

No I have schizophrenia and it makes me extremely paranoid.

It's really hard to imagine thc levels in a water supply, being enough to make anyone high. It's just not water soluble.

Thankfully, the threat has been contained, and the well has been put on lockdown:



Book 'em, Dano!

------------------------

Police are now saying only one well was involved. Initial reports that multiple wells were contaminated were due to "erroneous eyewitness reports. Fog of War, and all that. The other wells are being tested, but are only considered to be wells-of-interest, not actual suspect wells" according to a police spokesperson.

I use to smoke pot and I avoid it like the plague. I avoid the stuff at all cost and I don't like the idea of coming into contact with trace amounts if it were in the water. I've worked hard for my recovery from this illness. Long term exposure to even trace amounts could cause problems for someone like me. If it were trace amounts of lead I would be saying the same thing.

This was released prior to the results as updates are saying the well tested positive from the tampering:

"Processed THC- would take more product than any of us could afford to contaminate a city water supply to the extent that people would suffer any affects."
From LincolnComHospital.
Who could have afforded it for one and why the intent? If not from someone tampering maybe it has to do with absorption into the well water from local marijuana growers. Then why all of the sudden.

I'm thinking any THC in the water will be so diluted it'll be nothing more than a healthy supplement.

Lets talk about fluoride.

Raw marijuana has no effect !! that is rubbish...who comes up with this crap ?

That is not possible either, any leeching would be chemicals or fertilizers used on the plants, the plants themselves do not leech

Dont drink that water with tiny amounts of thc but here have some fluoride! Makes sense.

The amount of thc crystal or hash that would be needed to do this would be staggering and a total waste.

All natural bottled water. A new company has been formed, everyone is now working bottling water for sale at two bucks a bottle. A boom for the local economy. Who cares if the test results can't verify it contains THC, people will buy it.

If you are concerned about something like this in your own area, I think its important to realize the facts about it all. Especially because the worrying may be worse than ingesting trace amounts of inactive cannibinoids.

The PSA above ^^^ is a good, if brief read.

The actual compounds that would precipitate a reaction need to be both at a certain dosage, as well as "activated" in order for the body to metabolize it (which makes the body feel its effects).

What it comes down to is that achieving a "meaningful" response in you, specifically, through a common water supply is nearly impossible logistically (and that is being generous). I say that while taking serious consideration of an immensely extreme sensitivity to any and all cannibinoids.

My personal concern, for you specifically, would be inciting paranoia or anxiety about consuming cannibinoids without having ingested any. While the risk of such a thing in the OP is minimal, at the absolute most, to even those with extreme sensitivity.. there is a very real danger of instigating anxiety without any cannibinoids ingested whatsoever.

There is significantly more risk in that to those such as yourself than in a community water supply. I'm not saying this to minimize anything, quite the opposite. While something like a cannibinoid contaminated water supply may seem like the primary source of concern, it may actually be the response to it.

In other words, if you were to drink the water from this well without being told anything, you wouldn't know it as anything but water. But, if you drank water you were told "contaminated," (but was clean) you could create the negative response all on your own. The latter scenario is far more likely to happen than having a negative response from highly diluted, inactive cannibinoids, and that actually goes for all of us, really. I expect you are more than capable and strong enough to keep it from happening though, which means there isn't much concern from either scenario.

Yeah I didn't think it'd work that way but imagining that would be a claim since there's said evidence now in the first place. Sounds like a planned out anti marijuana job.
