2, 4-D TOKES
A spokesman for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs defended the policy of spraying wild growing marijuana with chemical herbicides--even if those herbicides might cause medical damage to subsequent smokers of the hemp plant.
Ernest Carabillo, acting assistant director of the Bureau of Narcotics, insisted that the use of "2, 4-D", a chemical spray, is an effective method of destroying grass plants in the mid-west. He acknowledged that the spray just might be harmful to smokers, but he added that the plants are sprayed when they are very small, and that the few plants which would survive would have little or no trace of the chemical spray when they are mature. Carabillo sald, "I believe the old adage--let the buyer beware."
