Marijuana is stronger than ever, but don’t get too excited

Surgeon General Jerome Adams raised eyebrows when he warned that cannabis was getting stronger two weeks ago. He added that, as a result, developing adolescents and pregnant mothers should avoid using today’s cannabis, due to the possible long-term damage.
