    Company makes any plant produce THC and the tomatoes are especially yummy




    June 1, 2009
    Oakdale, CA: Scientists at Montsaint Genie Tech Inc. announced today that they have successfully transferred the gene segment that produces the psychotropic chemical THC in cannabis plants to many other common garden plants, including tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, and more.
    “We probably can put the THC segment into almost any plant in existence,” says lead scientist Rebeca Vale. “It’s a very simple process. We are starting work on oak and maple trees now.”
    Asked if the resulting plants could be used in ways similar to cannabis, Vale replied, “Well, you can’t make twine out of a tomato plant, but if someone were to dry it and smoke it, all of the medicinal and psychotropic effects of marijuana would be present. And what’s more, we have learned that tomatoes, in particular, actually produce more THC than cannabis itself.”
    But is it legal? “Actually, yes,” says Vale. “Our research qualifies as GMO ‘intellectual property’, as does the process itself. Since tomatoes and other plants are not illegal, a person would be well within the law to grow them and use them as they please.”
    Vale says that her company is working on a spray that will transfer the segment to many plants simply by spraying the leaves of seedlings.
    “It’s a very simple process,” she says. “Anyone can do it. We plan to start selling the spray - ‘Genie Mist’ - in a matter of weeks. One bottle will sell for five dollars and be capable of treating 6,000 seedlings.”
    But how do the tomatoes taste? “Scrumptious,” Vale says. “But, of course, they are best when roasted.”

    Hell Yah!! I want strawberries covered in little crystals!!!

    For the most part it makes since. I'm surprized to hear that it will be in a spray that can be applied to anything. I'd think the would have to do some genetic modification and grow them from seed. Thanks for the article CJ!

    If they can do it....other companies will follow. Unless this article is a complete hoax, the THC genie may just have been released form the bottle....:wink: There would be no stopping it then...:lol:

    How long before the government steps in to say it's illegal? By the dates on the article it should be out. At that price and it being so easy to apply you'd think we would've heard more by now. JMO

    Could a gene be considered illegal? Pshh... how?

    IF this is real, which I am doubtful of... then it should ultimately prove the point that cannabis SHOULDNT be illegal... because are you going to ban tomatos? oranges? genes? :lol:

    We'll see... If this stuff is real, I'm buying it buy the truck load right away.

    They are said to plan distributing "Genie Mist" within the next week or two at $5.00 a bottle, and each bottle can treat 6,000 seedlings with the gene. Allegedly it is going to come in a spray bottle, which you will use to spray young seedlings as soon as they sprout.

    We'll see how all of this works... Sounds way too good to be true.
