An interesting issue came up through my volunteer work for the new website, "GMOAnswers.com
". Apparently some pot users are concerned that they might be unwittingly consuming what they consider to be a dreaded "GMO."
The irony is that while marijuana has definitely been "genetically modified" to contain higher levels of THC
, that change didn't involve the tools of modern biotechnology.
Instead, the changes were achieved using rather clumsy methods from the past.
