The other day we found out that alot of the beasts (weed type) running through our town are being dipped or sprayed. Obviously this is no good. We're hearing that they're dipped in/sprayed with embalming fluid. I personally smoked 1/4 O of this weed pretty much by myself during the last month after my acl surgery. I originally assumed that this was a fucked up way to add weight. However, looking around on the web, it looks like embalming fluid is often just used as slang for PCP. Also, it seems like dipping is usually done just before smoking, which wouldn't make sense in this case since the people doing it are the people moving pounds or more. Further, actual embalming fluid doesn't add much weight apparently because it turns into a gas at room temp and will evaporate. I've been coughing more than usual lately, (although i have had a cold lately so i'm not sure how much of that is a direct result of smoking this) and noticed that i was pretty fucked up during the month that i was smoking this stuff. However, I feel like if I'd been smoking alot of PCP or other stuff I probably would've started bugging out all the time, and I feel like I or someone else would have noticed something was up. I'm not smoking anymore weed for a while, since there have been a number of reasons that I was thinking about stopping anyways, and this most certainly seems to be a damn good reason. I guess I'm just wondering whether anyone here has any experience with this and can give me some clues as to what is actually on the weed, how harmful it is, etc.
If it's any help, this is in the boston area. Also, the nugs seemed a little brittle to me, but other than that they weren't noticeably different.
i'm pretty sure it's true, since most of the kids moving any amount of weight aren't smoking them. Also, I would imagine there are alot of different chemicals that have a pretty negligable effect on taste.
