Reefer Madness Replaced by Hydro Hysteria

In the 30’s there was Reefer Madness, now we have the 21st century version; Hydro Hysteria. Marijuana is something that Wade Agnew knows a great deal about. The author of the recently released autobiography “Cheating the Hangman: True Confessions of a *edit Trafficker” Wade knows what he’s talking about when it comes to illegal drugs; he has been using them for almost forty years, and smoking marijuana on a daily basis since first discovering it a University in 1968. Wade has taken them all.

“It was bad enough in the early days. I was “verballed” by the Australian Police; planted with two roaches; enough to have you jailed for months! It’s laughable when I think about it now. We had to endure this situation for decades, and people around the globe are still being incarcerated for ludicrous amounts of marijuana. It’s a scandal, especially in some parts of the United States; the so-called land of the free.”

“Now health and law enforcement authorities have launched a new international assault against the growing use of hydroponic marijuana; known as “hydro”. Thanks to the global “War on Drugs” percolating from the US, with its associated stranglehold on the International Narcotics Control Board, we now have to endure a new round of anti-marijuana hysteria. This new assault demonizes, criminalizes and persecutes those who choose to consume cannabis.

“Jesus, in the 1960’s I would have given my right arm for marijuana as consistently good as the current hydro. The main complaint seems to be the increased strength; the high THC content; often around 20%”.

“Are these guys kidding me? Grass that’s too strong! Is there any such thing? Not in my book; the stronger the better. I use a marijuana vaporizer these days. It’s the absolute best way to take your medicine,” says Wade from his home in Australia, where much to his chagrin, marijuana remains illegal.

Health experts have jumped on board, adding their own medical hysteria. It causes schizophrenia they claim. People with this ailment are certainly drawn to cannabis, and it could well aggravate the condition, but nothing definitive regarding cause and effect has been established. On the other side of the health ledger, it has been known for centuries that marijuana is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man, with a wide variety of applications; relief from nausea and increase of appetite; reduction of intra-ocular (within the eye) pressure; reduction of muscle spasms, and relief from chronic pain. Marijuana is frequently beneficial in the treatment of AIDS, Glaucoma, Cancer (chemotherapy treatment), Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, and Chronic Pain. Many patients also report that marijuana is useful for treating arthritis, migraine, menstrual cramps, alcohol and opiate addiction, depression and other debilitating mood disorders. Do we ever hear any of this from the health “experts”?

Since much of the controversy over the use of cannabis originates from possible long-term damage from harmful elements in the smoke, using a marijuana vaporizer makes good sense.

“I import the VapoHead Marijuana Vaporizer into Australia because I couldn’t get a decent one locally” says Wade.

“It releases the beneficial ingredients of marijuana into my lungs without burning; no tars or other harmful carcinogens. I wake in the morning without that heavy feeling in my lungs. Many glass-dome marijuana vaporizers have appeared since the first vaporizers arrived in 1994. None of them work as well as the VapoHead; remember bigger is not always better.”

Large glass domes are inefficient. You lose many of the active ingredients of marijuana because they condense on the inside of the dome. The VapoHead Marijuana Vaporizer has a small dome and an airtight seal designed for maximum efficiency. The ceramic bowl allows for even heating unlike brass versions, holding an ample amount of your chosen cannabis. The smaller size and scientific design combine just the right amount of heat and reduced oxygen supply for maximum benefit.

According to the “Maps” study; (Vol.11 spring2001) "The Marijuana Vaporizer produced THC at a temperature of 200 C. (392 F.), while completely eliminating three measured toxins; benzene, a known carcinogen, plus toluene and naphthalene. Carbon monoxide and smoke tars were both qualitatively reduced by the Marijuana Vaporizer.

“So don’t believe everything you read about hydro, keep your own counsel, stay calm, and if you want to get stoned without feeling like you’ve just sucked smoke from a car exhaust, get yourself a marijuana vaporizer.” Says Wade from in front of his laptop in Australia.
