NORTHFIELD, MN — A team of independent experts contracted by the Minnesota State Department of Public Health (MSDPH) recently confirmed what every student at the Carleton College Spring Concert suspected: after preliminary test results of air samples taken from around the performance stage indicated high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, the samples were sent to the state laboratories.
It was there; through a series of tests it was determined, at their peak, levels of THC reached in the air around the concert stage reached upwards of 3% by volume. The source of the air contamination is still unknown; however, a team of officials from the Department of Public Health is investigating possible causes of this mysterious spike.
Deputy Director of the MSDPH stated in a recent press release, “Concentrations this high are almost never seen even in controlled laboratory experiments, so far we have not been able to confirm whether exposure to this amount of THC is hazardous to human health.”
The press release also advised people in the zone of highest exposure, close to the northern edge of the concert stage, to monitor themselves for potential health effects.
Symptoms of exposure include drowsiness, fatigue, and insatiable hunger.
