It's 2011 and as my first blog post of the year I am going to make a prediction.
Sometime this year, it is going to come out that someone has genetically engineered marijuana plants with dandelions, thistles, and other prolific weeds.
That's right, you know those pesky hard to get rid of weeds people spend millions of dollars every year trying to get rid of out of their yards. Well imagine those pesky weeds transgenic-ally mutated with marijuana and growing everyone in epidemic proportions.
Can you imagine how hard it would be for the government to enforce regulation on a common weed?
It would be impossible, and the strains could just as easily be modified for medicinal purposes depending on what types of plants are genetically engineered.
Right now the technology of genetically engineered plants already exists, and it is just a matter of time as to when someone will do this with marijuana.
Take this video for example, explaining how an Easter Lily was crossed with an Asiatic plant.
Of course there are a slew of regulations already in place to prevent an epidemic of Frankenstein plants running loose, such as Biotechnology, and Regulatory Services (BRS)
So if you are doing this kind of research I would suggest a higher level in discretion with who you told, but if it succeeds, do manage to get the word out.
So take the time to pass this to your friends! I want a million people to see this! Maybe someone who has the technology and insight will be inspired to make this a reality! Imagine how fun it would be blowing the dandelion puffballs into the wind and giving the world a new strain of medicine that was easily accessible!
