Drug Czar Says Pot Potency has Doubled in Twenty Years

(PRWEB) May 16, 2007 -- The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) released the latest analysis from the University of Mississippi's Potency Monitoring Project. The recent report showed that the current levels of THC have reached the highest-ever since the analysis began in the late 1970's. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

The average amount of THC in seized marijuana samples has reached 8.5 percent. This compares to an average of less than 4 percent reported in 1983. The University of Mississippi has analyzed and compiled data on nearly 60,000 cannabis samples since 1975. The highest concentration of THC found in a marijuana sample during this period was 32.3 percent.

ONDCP Director John Walters said, "This new report serves as a wake-up call for parents who may still hold outdated notions about the harms of marijuana…Parents need to start having critical conversations with their children about this drug."

Walters also mentioned that the higher THC levels translate into serious health problems for teens and cited that more than half of teens receiving drug treatment reported marijuana as their primary drug of abuse. It was also stated that despite an overall decline in marijuana use among teens, there have been more mentions of marijuana in emergency room visits than ever before.
