What is "wet marijuana"?

I don't want to know how to ingest it; I outgerw that habit many years ago.

There was a local news story about a drug bust where they got "regular" marijuana, heroin, "wet marijuana" in what they showed as vials, and other stuff that the SDMB does not condone. I have never heard of "wet marijuana". What is it?

Uncured. Not dried. Straight off the plant.

I have no idea what the vials mean.

Is it effective, for lack of a better term, wet?

So, Joe Customer is paying whatever the price is for a tiny vial that he has to dry out himself? Seems like he's paying for the opportunuity to do the work.

If he's buying by weight..he's getting screwed.

And not in a fun way.

Most likely this refers to marijuana laced with PCP. A slang term for PCP is "embalming fluid", and thus many unknowledgeable people think PCP is a liquid. (PCP is a solid, although it could be made into a solution.)

Did they show what it looked like inside the vial? Was it a liquid, or just regular plant matter?

If it was a liquid, I suppose someone could've extracted the THC from marijuana with alcohol or something and then sold it as hash oil.

If it was plant matter, I don't know why they would've mentioned it specifically. Marijuana can be "wet" just like any other plant, because live plants have moisture in them and they take a while to dry out. No one would buy that type of wet marijuana on purpose; the water is just dead weight.

With no context, I'd agree with Reeder's conclusions...

But the "vials" thing kinda throws me.

It sounds like either hash oil or THC (and various other cannabinoids) dissolved in some sort of solvent.

Perhaps it's "pot butter" meant to be ingested orally.

I googled "wet marijuana" and found a whole bunch of sites that describe it as marijuana soaked in embalming fluid (formaldehyde and alcohols), and sometimes laced with PCP. The embalming fluid is supposed to make the marijuana more potent - I have no idea whether it really works.

Here's an article about "wet" that suggests it's a term for PCP, which is sometimes dissolved in embalming fluid, and can be either smoked with marijuana or sold in the form of soaked leaves (which may or may not be pot leaves).
Quote:
We obtained a sample of liquid purported to be embalming fluid from a field ethnographer in Texas(Bill Elwood), where people dip cigarettes of tobacco or marijuana into small vials of fluid. The joints are called "squares" and the wet marijuana is called "fry;" adolescents are congregating in "fry houses." (5) A sample obtained from Houston, Texas was submitted for analysis. Gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy was performed by the Bureau of Laboratories of the New York City Department of Health. Spectral analysis of the prominent chromatographic peaks included phencyclidine (PCP), as well as several congeners of phencyclidine, including 1-piperidinocyclohexane carbonitrile (PCC) and phenylcyclohexane (PCH). Solvents include diethylether and benzene. Starting materials for phencyclidine synthesis, such as bromobenzene and cyclohexanone, were also identified. Although GC/MS cannot identify formaldehyde or glutaraldehyde, appropriate testing is in progress.
Perhaps the vials were just a solution of PCP, not related to marijuana at all.

It looked like plant matter., but they didn't really take a close-up shot of them.

Miller also testified in favor of proposed guideline amendment #42, regarding the treatment of wet marijuana (fleshly harvested marijuana) for sentencing purposes. Currently the wet marijuana is weighed as is, with the defendant receiving a longer sentence under the current weight-driven guidelines.
NORML News
Quote:
At the sentencing hearing, Carter challenged the PSI's quantity finding, arguing that it was based on the weight of wet marijuana. He explained, through counsel, that the marijuana had been soaked with water before transport to Georgia. Carter alleged that he had to dry the marijuana before he could resell it, and he further claimed that the dried marijuana "didn't probably weigh half of what it weighed in its wet-down form." The court credited Carter's allegations, but held that the weight to be used in calculating his base offense level was the marijuana's gross weight, which included the weight of the water. Thus, the court adopted the PSI's factual findings and guideline calculations.

I agree with the others that have said it's marijuana laced with PCP (embalming fluid or whatever). This appears in pop culture in the Denzel Washington movie Training Day when Washington's character tells Ethan Hawke's character to smoke a joint. He then tells him it's "wet" and explains it has PCP. This scene is repeated in the Chappelle Show parody with Wayne Brady.

Back in the day...

AKA old school, "wet" pot was simply freshly harvested. Not yet hung and dried. No PCP invloved. It was sometimes oven-dried, which some people called "skunked".
Things may have changed.
Peace,
