Reader: Stoners aren't stupid enough to try injecting THC, but junkies might

needle.injection.205x205.jpg
Yesterday, Dr. Christian Thurstone told us he fears marijuana users in search of bigger and bigger highs may soon turn to injecting THC. Lots of readers weighed in on this possibility, with the one highlighted here speculating about what kind of people would, and wouldn't, give THC injection a shot, as it were.

Guesto writes:

I don't think stoners are that stupid but junkies will probably do it. If they do I'm sure they'll find the lethal dose of THC in the process, especially if they use alcohol as the transport fluid. Word is that a shady caregiver in Colorado found out his buddy was banging his wife and killed the guy with a THC injection and he wasn't caught because his buddy had a medical marijuana card. He supposedly experimented on rabbits first. Crazy people do crazy things. I'm sure Thurstone has seen a lot of messed up junkies over the years putting crazy things in their body for an extreme high.

I think this thinks people probably use bongs to give themselves marijuana enemas too. Obviously, this "doctor" has no idea what he's talking about when it comes to marijuana.

Lmao. How can you quote dudes words and not even check his story.... What caregiver did this and told somebody?? Lmao. He's all like, he was never found guilty because he was a patient... Hmmm. So this caregiver actually went to court for this?? What is this madness you quote with zero source of information EXCEPT gossip.

Wow, what a way to shine some ignorant dirtiness to the already complex subject. Fuck shooting anything recreationally. And I'd smack a fool if they said they shot THC. Such dumbfuckery, for sure.

And here I was thinking the story might be about science curing smack addiction with wheed. Nope, propaganda.

I agree with Sarah 100%. It really is one of the stupidest things I've read in, we'll ever. I'm thinking if your dumb enough to be willing to stab yourself with a needle you probably couldn't figure out how to turn THC into an injectable substance, plus if your partial to shooting shit, weed wouldn't cut it for ya. Gimme a break already.

What is the point of this article? Is it STRICTLY to stigmatize people who suffer from addiction as "stupid," "messed up," "crazy" junkies? Or was there a more nuanced message that I'm missing?

this is ridiculous. there are already plenty of "risky" ways to get very very high from THC products without adding another product like alcohol as a transfer fluid. its bad enough that people are using products in the pens to smoke it. and butane to extract it. but banging hash??? lol nah ill just stick to COUGHING. i really think its sad that we cant just slow down a little and enjoy the fact that 64 pased. and may hold. and yes MMJ has been legal for many years now. but i dont know many med patients looking to "shoot some hash." sadly is that youth is so impressionable and they might try this early on and create a problem that we don't want. so I personally hope that if anyone ever says anything to you about trying this you all put a stop to that very very bad idea. the day they put a death by THC on the list will be a win for the federal gvmt.
