Man, This is Heavy Weed

This story is being reported around the globe at present.

Apparently some big time German dealers are adding Lead to their weed in an attempt to get some extra cash. German doctors are saying that up to 10 percent by weight of some peoples scores have been contaminated.

The Age in Australia has a piece here.

The New England Journal of Medicine has a full report here.

My first thought is that this is another reason why the drug should be either legalized or decriminalized. At least then people can buy from a reputable dealer, or grow their own so they know exactly what is in their weed.
