These two stories, which you can read on MPR’s Minnesota Today website, have a strange synergy. Two lawsuits, threatened against public entities, over organic materials being grown for public consumption, each said to induce delight in the consumer.
Further, until recently nobody had heard of either synthetic marijuana (aka K2, Yucatan Fire, Bayou Blaster) or SweeTango apples. And both of them, judging from the anecdotal evidence, are seriously addictive.
So here’s a prediction: Soon someone will produce a synthetic form of SweeTango apples, probably with a name like Pepin Powerball or Crookston Crunch. In the meantime, hats off to the Duluth City Council for addressing faux dope, which the state should have dealt with by now but hasn’t.
