The Daily Mail’s attempt to out-do The Onion

Here’s the headline:

Cannabis users warned as high- strength skunk floods marketby Daily Mail Reporter

Yeah, I wouldn’t want to put my name on this story either.

Cannabis users are increasingly opting for high-strength skunk because weaker varieties of the drug have been frozen out of the market, campaigners warned today.
A report by charity DrugScope says that in some areas, skunk is so dominant it is almost impossible to obtain herbal cannabis or resin.

Um. So, I guess the message is…

“Hey guys, if you go out and buy some pot right now, it’ll probably be the good stuff.”

Except, of course, for the pesky little… facts.

According to pot potency data collected by the UK‰s Forensic Science Services and published by The Guardian newspaper, the average potency of THC in seized samples of British cannabis fell approximately 25 percent between 2004 and 2007.

Oops.
