    Peace


    Yes please do, we need this to circulate as much as possible.

    Here is some more info from UKCIA:
    On January 5th we received another analysis - this time using a scanning electron microscope. This revealed some of the particles were 10 micron or less. This is very bad news, these particles are small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs where they could cause enormous damage.

    The author of this analysis included these comments:

    X-ray analysis confirm the presence of silica in the sample indicating that the samples are probably glass beads.

    It would appear that the bulk of the beads are of a diameter of approximately 100 um (0.1mm), though round spheres between 10um and less are clearly visible in the samples.

    The unwashed samples, not surprisingly, show the presence of matter on the surface of the spheres.

    The only marked difference between the samples is the greater proportion of smaller beads in GW2, though this is not strong enough evidence to suggest two separate sources for the material. It is quite possible that these samples come from the same original source, the difference in particle size distribution being explained by the fact that this sample is only part of what was originally applied to the plant matter.

    (Note 1000 um = 1 mm)

    And in terms that the average Joe will understand, according to Rizla, the Silver Regular paper is 20 micrometers thin as opposed to the thickness of a human hair, which is 50-100 micrometers thick.



    Government health warning?


    This contamination is affecting a huge number of people - literally millions and yet the government has remained silent. The "Talk to Frank" anti drug advertising campaign, which costs millions to run - seems unable or unwilling to issue any warning.

    This danger is a product of the government's policy of prohibition. It is not an inherent danger of using pure cannabis. This situation has come about because the police disrupted the commercial cannabis supply acting on the instruction of the Home Office. This should have been anticipated because it always happens when drug markets are disrupted - indeed a measure of "success" of prohibition is contaminated supplies believe it or not! The problem the government has of course is that if they draw attention to this, they draw attention to the fact that prohibition is a dangerous and destructive policy, so they keep quiet.

    UKCIA is calling on the British government to run a high profile information campaign about the dangers of cannabis contaminated with glass beads

    In the meantime, the advice is don't buy this "grit weed", if you have some don't smoke it, take it back or throw it away. If you're a dealer don't sell grit weed.
