In "Why I'm not high on legalizing pot," Linda Williamson says many silly things. The most obvious was, "Today's pot is up to 2,500 times more potent than the stuff aging boomers might have experimented with in college." Since pot with less than 1% THC is not psychoactive at all, we'll take this as the minimum quality "aging boomers" smoked in college days. So, Williamson is claiming, in modern strains, a pound contains 25 lbs. of THC. Good trick. Defenders of the status quo will have to get a lot smarter than this if they want to maintain these foolish laws.

(That number was a typo. It should have read 2,500%.)
