Pete Guither points out the drug czar's mischievous use of the word "probably."

Quote: The greater use of today's high potency marijuana has probably been a critical factor in the unprecedented surge among those seeking treatment for marijuana…

Unless it isn't. Right there on the same page, you'll find the drug czar insisting that we need police to help people get treatment:
Quote: The majority of people in drug treatment programs today are there because of a law enforcement intervention
In other words, marijuana users aren't usually in treatment because their pot was so good it destroyed their life. They're there because they got caught by the cops, and according to the law, possession of marijuana is sufficient evidence for a determination that you're addicted to it.

The biggest risk associated with high potency marijuana might be that police are more likely to smell it.
