How Accurate is This Article on Aluminum Acetate?
I first discovered this product a few years ago when I was reading about alternative methods for consuming medical marijuana. I found that a lot of people had a lot of success with it so I decided to add it to my website.
Since then I have spoken to many local headshops and online distributors who all say that business in this product has skyrocketed and that they can’t keep it in stock. They all credit the increased sales to the success of the legalization movement.
I think it is very important to stress that this product should ONLY be used externally or occasionally, This is especially true for people with respiratory issues such as asthma as overuse can cause irreversible damage and even death.
