Smoking Soap = Smoking Poison

By the Legalise Cannabis Alliance

Recently RED EYE EXPRESS magazine highlighted the dangers of smoking bad quality hash, some of which contains very little cannabis at all. We refer to both "Soap" and the soft black gunk often referred to as "Squiggy Black", "Affy Black" or "Pakki Black". The article explained that even the better 'soap' bars weighing about 250 grams contain less than 10 grams of cannabis pollen (resin glands) and up to 200 grams of ground-up shade leaf, along with various noxious substances like glue to bind it, and colouring agents.

Here are some of the other substances found in this bad quality cannabis sold by rip-off dealers:
- beeswax
- boot polish
- animal turds
- turpentine
- henna
- ground coffee
- milk powder
- pine resin
- barbiturates
- ketamine
- aspirin
- glues & dyes

Carcinogenic solvents such as Toluene and Benzene and many other unidentified and possibly DEADLY chemicals.

These SOAP bars are not available from coffee shops in Holland or from farms in Morocco. They are often made in Spain or England.

SOAP bar costs about 1,500 pounds a kilo in the UK, that's 1.50 pounds a gram: that's 5.25 pounds an eighth.

If you buy it you are allowing yourself to be ripped off by unscrupulous dealers who either do not know or do not care about you and your health and may be interested only in the huge profits they make.

'SOAP' is poisonous - it is a danger to health and it gives real cannabis a bad name. It should always remain illegal.

The ONLY way to stop this is to tell your dealer and

REFUSE TO BUY BAD QUALITY
