So Strong You Get High Just by Looking at It

A newspaper in Naperville, a Chicago suburb, reports that a local man was arrested by state troopers in Ohio last week with "104 pounds of hydroponically grown marijuana" that police said "had an estimated street sale value of more than $4.7 million." As Scott Morgan notes at the Drug War Chronicle's blog, that works out to $2,825 an ounce, which has got to be the most expensive marijuana on record, costing six times the average for premium pot in the latest High Times price report. Perhaps this is the superpot that drug czar John Walters has been warning us about. To be worth that kind of money, it would have to be more than 100 percent THC.
