NewsHub 21 September 2020Family First Comment: Yep – 81% THC!!! But we all know this. The Minister and the government pushing this referendum either don’t know OR don’t want us to know! VOTE NO – it’s the only safe vote.The potent weed tracked down by Patrick Gower for his latest cannabis documentary is the strongest ever tested in New Zealand, the Government’s research institute has confirmed.Newshub’s National Correspondent discovered the powerful cannabis product dubbed Diamonds while filming the third instalment of his On Weed series, which aired earlier on Monday night on Three.The product – a concentrated cannabis resin put through various processes to form a crystal – is taken as a dab. Manufactured by a Kiwi who goes by ‘the Dab Chemist’, it’s an incredibly potent 81 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).THC is one of 400 chemical compounds in weed, but it’s the most notorious because it’s the main psychoactive substance – it’s the bit that makes you feel high.On Monday afternoon, Crown research institute Environmental Science and Research (ESR) confirmed in a social media post that Diamonds is the most powerful cannabis product ever seen in New Zealand.ESR found the THC levels are nearly six times higher than the bush weed smoked by one chronic user interviewed by Gower, and still had more than four times the THC of the next-most powerful cannabis it tested, Ngāruawāhia KushAs it stands, Diamonds is far too potent even for a regulated market in New Zealand. It’s unlikely to ever be available for purchase lawfully here, even if Kiwis vote in favour of legalisation at next month’s referendum.This is because at 81 percent THC, it’s five times more potent than what’s allowed under the proposed Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill.When told of the THC levels, Justice Minister Andrew Little was taken aback.READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/09/on-weed-patrick-gower-alerts-justice-minister-to-new-zealand-s-strongest-ever-weed.html?fbclid=IwAR14rLVCZJ3lAo6OzUWIakz8wFOH8WodGbybaDb–mLQHYkU9HX0IyrU4tIKeep up with family issues in NZ.

MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderFLEX Jordan Howard, Bears @ Giants ($5,700). I’m not a huge fan of Howard as a player, but this week seems to be a good one to target him, especially given his sub-$6K pricing. While Howard hasn’t played well of late (112 total yards, no scores in his last three games) the Giants allow the fifth-most FanDuel points to RBs. They have struggled with bigger power backs in recent weeks too, including Peyton Barber and Adrian Peterson. Howard could be the next in line to break 100 yards and score, so we’ll get him as a cheap FLEX that may be among the lower-owned options in our lineup.DEF Buffalo Bills @ Dolphins ($4,000). In recent weeks, the Bills’ defense has played well against pedestrian quarterbacks, and they’re averaging 9.0 FanDuel points in their last two contests. They’re a lower-budget option that should have a chance to generate some turnovers against a still banged-up Ryan Tannehill, so we’ll take a chance on them as a low-budget option. Week 13 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerWeek 13 FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS tournament lineupQB Russell Wilson, Seahawks vs. 49ers ($7,700). Last week, I took Lamar Jackson in a solid matchup as my QB, and that worked out. This week, I’ll be spending down into a similar price range to target another QB who can run in Wilson. Wilson is taking on a 49ers team that has allowed 19.9 FanDuel points per game to QBs. Wilson should have a chance to do damage against them despite his limited opportunities to pass the ball (the Seahawks throw the second-fewest amount of passes across the league). That latter stat is part of why Wilson is so cheap, and getting him as the 10th-highest priced QB on the slate seems like a bargain.RB Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Cardinals ($7,600). The Cardinals have allowed the fourth-most FanDuel points to RBs this season at a clip of 29.1 per game. Jones is starting to get more work in the Green Bay offense, and he has at least 93 scrimmage yards and a score in each of the past three weeks. The Packers will likely look to exploit the Cardinals weakness against the run, so that means that Jones could see carries early and often. As the seventh-highest priced RB on this slate, he’s a worthwhile investment.RB Phillip Lindsay, Broncos @ Bengals ($7,000). The Bengals defense has been dreadful in recent weeks, and they have allowed the third-most FanDuel points to RBs this season. Lindsay should have a chance to see a lot of touches, and he has at least 100 scrimmage yards and a score in each of the past two weeks. That, coupled with the fact that the Bengals have allowed four RB to score 19.5-plus fantasy points in the past three weeks makes Lindsay a good value as the 10th-highest priced RB on the slate.WEEK 13 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsWR Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos @ Bengals ($7,000). I am going with a contrarian stack by pairing Sanders with his equally-priced teammate Lindsay. The reason for this is simple: Cincinnati is simply that bad. Sanders should continue to see a bulk of the team’s targets, as he’s averaging 9.0 per game in the past three outings, and he will have a chance to break a big play. This leaves us heavily exposed to the Broncos playing an early game, but it should ultimately pay off because of the porous Bengals defense.WR D.J. Moore, Panthers @ Buccaneers ($6,400). In the past two games, Moore has logged 15 catches for 248 yards and a TD. He’s becoming the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers and should continue to see a volume of targets. The Buccaneers have allowed the fifth-most FanDuel points to WRs this year and this contest has the makings of an offensive showdown.WEEK 13 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | DraftKingsWR Tyler Lockett, Seahawks vs. 49ers ($6,700). I wanted to stack Wilson with one of his top weapons, and the pricing on Lockett here is solid. Lockett has been surprisingly consistent this season, and he has scored a TD in eight of 11 games. He should have a good chance to beat the 49ers’ coverage team, and Wilson targets his just about five times per game. That’s enough for us to take him on as a TD threat with decent volume.TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs @ Raiders ($7,800). I wanted exposure to the Raiders-Chiefs game, so I decided to spend up at TE. Kelce is far and away the highest-priced tight end, but spending up is possible since we didn’t spend up big at any other position. Kelce is averaging 15.17 FanDuel points per game, and he should consistently get close to that number, especially if he can score. He has a ton of upside, taking on one of the worst defenses in the league, so he’s well worth the investment on an otherwise thin-looking slate for the position. Last week’s slimmed-down NFL DFS slate is in the past, and now we have a deep player pool to choose from. For this week’s FanDuel GPP lineup, only the Saints-Cowboys, Chargers-Steelers, and Redskins-Eagles games were unavailable for main slate. That left players from 26 other teams to choose from for our daily fantasy football roster. This time around, we budgeted strategically and spent no more than $7,800 on any single pick.Because of our spending decisions, we were able to generally get top-tier talent at most positions. We didn’t target the pricing ceiling at any position, save for TE, but we spent down just enough and targeted matchup-based sleepers to carry our tournament lineup. We have two stacks, including a traditional QB-WR stack with a pair of Seahawks and a contrarian RB-WR stack with a team that has a great matchup. We’re hoping these moves gain us enough differentiation to really make some noise in GPP formats and get in the money.
