kind of confusing,


there is evidence a well is contaminated with THC,
no level of concentration
no symptoms to anyone


i wonder what evidence they have.


not to mention thc is not water soluble.

glad to see common sense is prevailing. why can't people just be fuh- king normal?

reminds me of the paraquat charade back in the seventies

THC is fat and alcohol soluble. Not water soluble. I doubt this story very much. That's why people that cook with it have to use butter or some other kind of fat or alcohol. You could dump pounds of weed into water and drink that water and nothing will happen. Thc is an oil. What happens when you put water and oil together? Do they mix? Does the oil dissolve into the water? No. Also, thc must be decarboxylated before it becomes effective through ingestion. Everything about this story sounds like nonsense.




Dumping a pound of weed into water would in fact remove the thc gland, do a search on bubble bags and hash water extraction, The thc glands are an oil like you say but they are also solid, cold water will harden them and they become easy to break off the thc stalk and all the time they are in cool water they will remain a particle rather then an oil

You are correct on most of it but do not HAVE to be decarboxylase thc to actvate it, it will have some effect un treated, especially if you've eaten before as most foods have some sort of fat and will help ingest the thc, decarbo is mainly for making alcohol tinctures, vape oils and stuff like that. But, you have to remember that its meant to be in the water, people cook with water, heat water for drinks and stuff and heating will decarboxylase the thc and if its been used for cooking will bind to most food leading to a rather chilled out family dinner time

You're right about water being used to make hash. But, when you make hash the glands collect at the bottom of the bubble bag. The water is just used to strip glands from the plant material which are then pressed into hash. You can do the same thing by just rubbing the plants with your hand. The water and left over plant material are discarded because neither contain amy useful compounds any more. When you make hash you wouldn't want the thc to absorb into the water. Thats why water is used for that instead of a solvent. The thc is still not absorbed in the water. Drinking that water won't get you high.

Also, making hash is somewhat wasteful and inefficient. Most hash is only 15-20% thc whereas extracts made using non-polar solvents like alcohol, which thc does dissolve in, produces an extract that's closer to 75-99% thc. Decarbing occurs when you cook with it. So will happen anyway if you make butter or heat it in anyway to cook. Yeah it's something you have to do separately if you make a tincture or something. It would be a waste if you didn't. Try just sitting there eating weed out of a bag and see how much you'd need to eat to get the same effect as weed you've decarbed first. It's a lot more.

Rather it be THC than carbon dioxide or fluoride.

Lol
Maybe some MJ farm had some flood drainage divert to an underground channel and made its way to the well.
Calling it contaminated though is like saying I contaminated my ice cold coke with some Crown Royal

Not necessarily, fluoride is thought to calcify the pineal gland, and cannabis is thought to de-calcify the pineal gland.

It's all fairly speculative though.

If our water could actually be fortified with THC, I would be all for it.

The only way I can think this could happen is if some company that produced pure THC dumped a batch there for some reason.

This is a joke....nothing here folks ...move long.....THC is not water solubale and every single vitamin and pill we take goes down the toilet after our body uses what little it can and every unused pill flushed also ends up in the water...........testing the water for any chemical included in any medicine will show its presence in the water.

In this age of education what a pitifull waste of cyberspace .

Here's the update of hysteria for nothing, with no #. No THC found:
"Tests reveal Colorado town does NOT have marijuana chemical THC in the water... just days after residents were warned not to cook or drink"


But the water advisory was immediately canceled on Saturday after multiple tests found no trace of the chemical.

Authorities now believe the initial tests were false.

DM via AP


More on false tests being used to incriminate(info prior to the update above):



The more concerning issue is the fact that this entire scare is based on the use of field testing kits which are notoriously faulty and unreliable.

In January The Free Thought Project reported on a demonstration carried out by the Marijuana Policy Project, which showed how easy it is for field testing kits used by police to generate false positives. Tylenol PM was tested for coc aine, and results showed coc aine. Hershey’s chocolate showed a false positive for cannabis, and they even got a false positive for cannabis when absolutely nothing was put into the field test kit.

“The director of a lab recognized by the International Association of Chiefs of Police for forensic science excellence has called field drug testing kits “totally useless” due to the possibility of false positives. In laboratory experiments, at least two brands of field testing kits have been shown to produce false positives in tests of Mucinex, chocolate, aspirin, chocolate, and oregano.”

It is estimated that tens of thousands of innocent people are in prison due to faulty field drug test kits.
