Marijuana smokers buying poisoned dope

28.07.2004
By AINSLEY THOMSON
Marijuana users are being warned about poisoned cannabis being sold on the Coromandel Peninsula.

A pro-marijuana group says the cannabis has been sprayed by police with a herbicide, a process which turns the drug blue. Unscrupulous growers are disguising the poisoned cannabis with yellow food colouring to make it look green.

The National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (Norml) said the affected marijuana could cause people to cough up blood and suffer nausea and headaches.

Police confirmed that when they found marijuana plots they sprayed them with herbicide.

Waikato police spokeswoman Kris McGehan said the police would not disclose any operational information such as when or how the plants were sprayed.

Ms McGehan said she had not heard of people getting sick from smoking poisoned drugs "but we are probably unlikely to for obvious reasons".

"If you are going to buy or consume illegal drugs that is the risk you take. Obviously it is a criminal activity that we have no control over."

Norml spokesman Chris Fowlie said most growers were "legitimate and ethical people".

"But there is a section who are attracted just for the money and if they lose their crop through spraying they are going to want to recover it some other way."

Mr Fowlie said those growers were disguising the poisoned marijuana by covering it in yellow food colouring to make it look green. They were also turning it into cannabis oil, where the blue colour was harder to detect.

Mr Fowlie said the poisoned marijuana was mostly being bought by teenagers who were likely to buy from sources such as tinny houses.

"We are getting reports that these kids are buying pot and smoking it and getting sick or coughing a lot. Coughing up blood in some instances."

Green Party MP Nandor Tanczos said the police should let the public know exactly what they were spraying so the health risks could be determined.

Toxic weed

What the marijuana sprayed with herbicide looks like:

* Chris Fowlie of the National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws says the poisoned marijuana is a copper-blue colour.

* Some strains of marijuana, such as Te Puke Thunder, are naturally blue, which could confuse people.

* But the poisoned marijuana looks like the blue colour has been splashed or painted on.

* When the stalk on a poisoned plant is broken, blue dye should be visible down the middle of the stalk.







Typical reaction from the police - "It's illegal, if you get sick it's your own stupid fault for breaking the law". If they didn't contaminate it in the first place, it wouldn't be a problem. It's a lazy way of getting rid of the plants. The reason drugs are SUPPOSED to be illegal is to protect us from harm, yet they make a non toxic drug toxic.
And pretty appalling that some dealers are selling this crap.

Exactly. It's an entirely idiotic logic.

They sprayed a bunch of pot and just left it there.

They sparayed it either when it was near harvest or the shit ddin't even kill the plant and was some other poison.

That's nuts, shouldn't they have to remove the illegal drug?

I'm going to poison the police's food and if they eat it, well, it's their food, it's their fault.

Why didn't the cops just smoke it up like they usually do when they confiscate marijuana? They just sprayed it and left it? Sounds kind of odd...

Agreed, why would they find a huge patch of marijuana, poison it and leave? Wouldn't they even monitor the people picking it?

Or perhaps they are just waiting at the hospital, seeing who needs the antidote along with a prison sentence

The thing is, even from a legal standpoint, posioning an illegal substance is WAY beyond the jursidiction of a police force. Their job is to enforce the laws, not take them into their own hands. Besides which, posioning anything on purpose should be considered something along the lines of attempted murder. It's unbelievable that this kind of thing can happen.
