"Coral Reefer Madness"
"Decades ago, pharmacologist M. E. West of the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica, noted that local fisherman who smoked cannabis — or drank cannabis-laced rum — had 'an uncanny ability to see in the dark,' which enabled them to navigate their boats through coral reefs"
“'[but] I was then convinced that the man who had taken the rum extract of cannabis had far better night vision than I had, and that a subjective effect was not responsible.'”
NOT ONLY THOSE JAMAICAN FISHERMEN HAVING A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE.
". . . Moroccan fishermen and mountain dwellers experience a similar improvement after smoking hashish"
". . . in 2002, another research team traveled to the Rif mountains in Morocco to investigate further. They gave a synthetic cannabinoid to one volunteer, and hashish to three more, then used a newly developed piece of kit to measure the sensitivity of their night vision before and after. Confirming West’s earlier report, they found that cannabis improved night vision in all three of their test subjects."
RUM AND MARIJUANA NOT A COMBINATION THE MILITARY WOULD BE FOND OF. THAT ELEMENT WITHIN CANNABIS BENEFICIAL TO ENHANCED NIGHT VISION CAN BE EXTRACTED AND PUT TO GOOD USE? MEN WITH EYES OF A CAT/
It all remains to be seen! Get it?
