What Can Marijuana Be Laced with and How to Recognize Laced Weed?

In the whole history of humankind, no one has ever died from using marijuana. Cannabis has helped countless numbers of people cope with anxiety, depression, epilepsy and many other conditions and symptoms.

When the production and distribution of cannabis is regulated by law (for either medical or recreational purposes), there’s usually no need to buy cannabis that’s been tampered with. That’s why, for example, Canada does not have as many problems with laced weed as some US states and the UK.

However, not all of us are so lucky to have …
