Newsflash: Woman Blows Doobies Every Day for a Month, Gets Injected With THC, Gains Weight, Acts Stupid

Nice to see the BBC putting all that British taxpayer money to good use. Have a woman leave her kids for a month, bone up excessively around the clock, watch her get fat because (duh!) she had the munchies and act like a blithering idiot because she's consuming excessive amounts of skunk weed.

What, they couldn't just find some other slackers on the dole to do this with?

Real groundbreaking television.

Superskunk me: What happened when one woman smoked dope daily for a month for a BBC documentary
Just a few puffs on a rolled-up cigarette containing "skunk" - a strong form of cannabis - was all it took to strip Nicky Taylor of all her capabilities and to induce a terrifying combination of paranoia, fear and anxiety.

As the drug took effect, she was rendered incapable of doing anything save look anxiously around her and try to calm her trembling hands.

But Nicky is not just another of the millions of Britons who smoke cannabis regularly. She chose to experiment with the drug as part of a BBC documentary in which she investigated just how damaging smoking different forms of the drug can be - with herself as a guinea pig.

"I felt absolutely terrified," recalls Nicky, a divorced mother-of-three, thinking back to her first experience just over a month ago.

"Paranoia set in, and I felt as if I was having a panic attack. At one point, I was simply too frightened to get out of my chair.

"I had a feeling the drug had unlocked some sort of paranoia in my head that would never go away again - I suddenly felt everyone hated me. Without doubt, that was one of the worst moments of my life."
Well, just so people don't get the wrong idea, this didn't just happen from smoking some joints.

She actually had herself inject with pure THC!
Controversially, she also allowed herself to be injected with pure THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in cannabis.

Her aim was to discover the true effect cannabis had on her mind and body - and conversely on the millions of Britons who now smoke it regularly.

While some will question Nicky's wisdom in committing herself to such an experiment when she is a mother of three young children, there is little doubt that her experiences are both enlightening and cautionary to anyone who might think cannabis is harmless.

At one point during her investigation, scientific tests proved that, thanks to the drug, she had developed a level of psychosis well above that seen in individuals with schizophrenia.
Certainly not advocating excessive marijuana use here, but is it any wonder somebody gets whacked out when they're injected with THC?

How stupid is this woman?
