    Salutations Punk In Drublic,

    Indeed, those are relevant questions which i asked myself too:

    More clearly this could very well imply that myclobutanil got specifically chosen for its easy-to-mask property in a smoker context where the proof of evidence gets conveniently destroyed, that later consumption method also being actively promoted at the SQdC "legal" stores where unsuspecing visitors can even find a variety of products related to rolling paper (& glue)... So please lets keep all this in mind while i finally raise the matter of hard-to-detect PCP soups actually causing individual effects to multiply.

    Absolutely, and that's why i'm quite tempted to point out it's not THC in "illicit THC carts" which requires much closer attention, nor even their origin until we get a complete trustable list of "adulterants" laser-printed directly on the bottle... Otherwise mass media shall continue to proceed with similar propagandist juxtapositions ad nauseam, unable/unwilling to re-adjust itself to genuinely serve public interest!

    ...

    Good day, have fun!! :cool:

    Valid point. I use the term THC as an identifier to separate one vaping culture from another (nicotine), and not as the source of the problem. Perhaps further reference should be “illicit Vitamin E Acetate cartridges”

    What's all the fuss about a little cyanide? I mean cyanide seems to be perfectly safe in the FDA approved iQOS.

    This whole hydrogen cyanide thing is starting to annoy me badly.

    THERE WAS NO hydrogen cyanide found in bootlegged THC vape carts!
    Chemicals that may produce cyanide were found.

    Clickbait media at it's finest.

    Fun fact: Humans produce cyanide at low concentrations and exhale some with every breath.

    Humans must be banned for the chillins. <nods>

    Thanks.

    Interesting, poor Ben stated that he got his THC products from dispensaries. Are dispensaries not suppose to be regulated? Has there been any warnings about dispensaries, or recalls of product?

    It's not clear whether it was a legal dispensary.
    There are many dispensaries, or clubs, which are operating rogue with no license or conforming to any laws, in US cities.

    By the way, folks, this cyanide-causing agent is better know as Eagle 20, a fungicide used to treat Powdery Mildew on cannabis.

    When cannabis is concentrated, so are the nasty chemicals.

    It's the vitamin E acetate.

    Not that vaping these other chemicals like cyanide is a great idea.
