Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Case: Granddaddy Purple Wax (extract)
File Date: 06/01/2017
Case No: 0119
I thought I’d open the mailbag this time around and share a recent letter from one of my many fans out there...
Hi Officer Downey,
I’d love to know – Have you ever tried weed?
-Steve in Addison
Dear Steve in Addison:
You’re asking me if I’ve ever danced with the devil’s vine? Made love to Mary Jane? Dabbled in Dabsville? Partied in Pot Town? Visited Vapeland? Puff-Puff-Passed? Blazed the bong? Toked the trees? Smoked the Sensi? Been naked with the nugs? Commingled with the cannabis? Kicked it with the kind? Got it on with the ganja? Digged a dugout? Done the dank? Burned the blunt? Fired up the fatty? And, come face-to-face with the Grin Reefer himself?
Why, how dare you! Good day, Sir!

In its intact state, this wax emitted strong purps. When dabbed, it tasted of purps – anise and grape, with a berry sweetness on the exhale and lingering sweet purps notes. This very fresh batch (made less than 2 weeks before use) was exceptionally tasty for a purps regular butane wax.

Effects: At first a potent body and mind combo, but after about 20-30 minutes the cerebral fades a bit as the body influence takes over. Very effective medicine for sleep, pain and all-purpose ‘mellowing’.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with insomnia. May also help with overall pain management, muscle spasms, depression, anxiety, appetite (and more)
Superior taste, almost rivaling a live resin in flavor. It should be noted that freshness played a big role in the flavor.

And remember Steve from Addison, the next time you turn around, turn around again ...'cause I’ll be there.
