(AP Wirephoto) Narcotic Agents Concerned Over Man-Made Marijuana WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal narcotics agents are concerned about the possible appearance of man-made marijuana which is colorless and odorless but so powerful only two or three drops in a cigarette can produce the same kick as natural marijuana, the Washington Post said today. "Smuggling in synthetic marijuana could make the $350 million a year heroin business look like peanuts," the paper quoted a narcotics, agent as saying. "And it would be easy," he added. "A. little alcohol and some coloring and it could be brought in as after-shave lotion." The Justice Department's Bureau of Narcotics and Danger' ous. Drugs plans to send Con gress fresh legislation to cover the sale and use of marijuana made in a laboratory, the Post said. Currentty^federal law cov ers only natural marijuana which is grown. Federal officials say marijuana was first made synthetically our years ago by an Israeli ihemist. They say it is still ex- remely expensive to produce, he major factor that has kept it rom the illegal drug market. Federal officials fear, however, that the price is bound to come down as more chemists tinker with it "When this happens we may be in very deep trouble," one agent said.
