Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report

Case: Custom Blend (Rosin)
File Date: 11/07/2016
Case No: 0062
Custom Blend Rosin: Running Squirrel Averted
Over the weekend I got called to an early voting location regarding a “protester”. When I arrived on the scene I observed several people arguing just outside the entrance.
As I approached the crowd, I heard someone repeatedly yelling, “It’s my Goddamned Constitutional right!” The crowd parted and the yeller appeared. It looked like the American flag threw up on this guy. Every stich of clothing had some version of the red, white and blue on it. He even had these bizarre, clip-on American flag fake front teeth. He was wearing a ‘homemade’ t-shirt that he’d written slogans on with a red marker. The front of the shirt read, “Trump that Bitch!” and on the back was “Grab a P*ssy! Trump 2016”. The on-site election officials had tried to explain to this person that he couldn’t go into the voting location wearing visible political slogans per state voting laws but he wasn’t having any of it, saying it was his right as an American citizen to wear whatever he wanted into the voting booth.
On the way to the police station for booking, I listened to this guy regurgitate his vast knowledge about voting laws and the many conspiracies and political actors intent on destroying America. Rule #1 for a cop: Don’t ever engage the crazies. For the first time in my career I broke that rule and asked, “Excuse me, sir. I’m curious. How can you justify referring to women as bitches and write offensive words about their genitalia on your shirt?”
Unfortunately, I was forced to come to a sudden stop to evade a squirrel and, as a result, this poor man’s face met the bulletproof divider glass. I was very sorry his broken nose prevented him from answering my question.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Physical Characteristics: Dark cola colored, semi-opaque ribbon strips. The consistency of this sample was shatter-like with thicker pieces having a somewhat soft and pliable interior. The color looks like it was pressed at too hot of a temperature. Taste will tell.
Terpene Experience: In its unsmoked form, this rosin gives off mild sweet, earth and pungent aromas. When dabbed, this sample tasted very much like its genetics: GSC and Durban sweetness on a foundation of Kush pungent pine and earth. However, like the Chemnesia rosin, this rosin also had a burnt taste to it, as if it was pressed too hot.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: With THC levels hovering around 90%, this rosin’s effects were very powerful. The euphoria hits you fast and hard, first in the head and then quickly migrating to the rest of the body. The effects are a potent, Indica-leaning high with couch-lock potential at higher doses. For me, the effects were a close reflection of the blend’s lineage. Imagine GSC gets a shot of Kush.
Duration of Effects: 3+ hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and sleep. May also help with nerve pain, muscle pain and spasms, body pain, PTSD, arthritis, anxiety, depression, insomnia, appetite (and more)
I love rosins and am very happy to see they have not been abandoned in Illinois. I liked this rosin for its thoughtful blend and potency. If it weren't for the burnt notes, I would have given this rosin at least a 4 rating.

I love squirrels.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
