Toxic Ganja: What Dangerous Chemicals Are In Your Pot (marijuana) ?

The Mother Jones Magazine article:


What Dangerous Chemicals Are In Your Pot ?
By By Josh Harkinson , Mother Jones January 30, 2011


Partial excerpt from the article:

In practice, medical marijuana is typically greener than 
pot from your curbside drug dealer, which is often sourced 
through Mexican cartels or illegal grows in  national forests. 
But the distinction pretty much stops there. Grown under the 
radar of state and federal agricultural authorities, even 
"medical" cannabis can  be covered in toxic mold, raised in 
rooms filled with shedding pit bulls, or coated in commercial-
grade synthetic fertilizers and insecticides such as phosphate 
and Diazinon, which can be especially toxic if improperly 
applied. "Under our program a huge advantage is the 
patient can be assured that their cannabis is being grown 
in a legally compliant manner," says Van Hook. Well, at least 
"legally compliant" enough for any eco-conscious stoner.

Next excerpts:

Van Hook founded Clean Green, a certification 
program for medical marijuana farmers that's nearly 
identical to the USDA's organics program

Though medical marijuana is legal in 15 states, most 
of them don't inspect pot farms for compliance with 
agricultural laws. Which where Van Hook's status as 
an accredited "apples-to-zucchini" USDA-certified 
organic farm inspector comes in: He's denied some 
pot growers Clean Green certification for infractions 
such a using composted human feces to fertilize plants, 
growing plants near livestock pens that coat buds in 
manure dust, or setting off a bug bomb in a grow 
room shortly before harvesting.

End of partial excerpt.

Disclaimer:


While marijuana is legal in California if you 

have a "medical card" (and my doctors have 
offered me one), I do not use it. But I do support 
and advocate for those that do.  It is far less dangerous
that many pharmaceutical drugs.  Unless it contains 
"toxic chemicals" that do not and should not be in it. 

 Some of my perspectives and "opinions" on battling 
addictions can be found and blogged at "Straight Kink".

The article titled
Pollutant Changes Sexual Preference
is linked in below. But there are a few things that
you need to know, first. The reference material
for my statements and conclusions are given
after the linked in article - TK

This blog presents a number of articles and reports
that discuss common toxic chemicals that can also
change your sexual preferences. As well as the mixture
of such chemicals multiplying in their toxic impact,
rather than adding, when combined. Many of the
"common chemicals" are known as "endocrine disruptors".
Since your gonads are a part of the endocine system, you
might think of these as "Nad Buster's".

Update of  February 5 2011

A funny cartoon video about toxic chemicals is not 

a joke. It is "Edutainment" about Toxic Chemical Exposure




The video is posted with "Action Links for the Safe Chemical Act"" at

"If ya think the thought" ;
In the tradition of the San Francisco slang factory,
comments with new slang terms that are both socially
acceptable and "ear catching", would be appreciated.

It is worth noting that the average American has already
chemicals" that can also "modulate your mood".

Over the past decade, it has become clear that the brain synthesizes steroid
hormones by using some of the same steroidogenic enzymes found in adrenals
and gonads (reviewed in refs. 1 and 2). These compounds were given the name
neurosteroids (3), and some of their functions have been elucidated (4).

Translation (my opinion):
SSRI's might be used to treat the symptoms
of common toxic chemicals exposures. To my
knowledge, the effects of SSRI's combined with
toxic chemicals exposures has not been studied
and may very well be the cause of "adverse reactions's".

Excerpt:
Scientists have long known that mercury in the environment can harm wildlife. A new study shows it can also change their sexual preference. Researchers collected 120 white ibis chicks from the wild and raised them in captivity for 3 years. They fed some of the birds a diet laced with mercury, a common pollutant from coal-burning power plants. As the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 55% of male birds in the group exposed to the highest level of mercury, 0.3 parts per million, formed mating pairs with other males.

End of excerpt.
Please note that the above article about mercury being a
pollutant that can Change Sexual Preference DOES NOT
consider the cumulative effects, nor the effects of mixing
lead or any other chemical in with the exposure to mercury.

Caution: Connecting these "Toxic Tweets"
can reveal a rather perverse scenari.
Also note:
An article that lists peer reviewed medical journal
articles about common toxic chemicals that can
feminize boys and cause girls to become masculine
that was published by Green Peace and titled "Fragile"
is linked in with a few other articles, at ;

Toxic Gonads R & D "All about the money" - with photo
Your gonads are a part of what modern medicine calls
the "Endocrine System".

So when you hear them talking about Toxic chemical
exposures to "
endocrine disruptors" they are
talking about "Ball Busters", Egg Crunchers",
"Breast Levelers"

The "Toxic Sermon" that I am preaching about this
demands participation form the congregation.
So feel free to "shout it out", if you think you have
any alternative names ( euphemism's - slang) for

these toxic chemicals known as "endocrine disruptors"
