Is former WWE Superstar Val Venis (aka Sean Morley) smoking cannabis laced with Angel Dust? That’s the question I have to ask after “The Big Valbowski” tweeted some comments concerning the January 6, 2021, Capitol Occupation. In case you missed it, Venis’ Twitter tirade included a reply to former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (and WWE Hall of Famer):
That wasn’t Val’s only comment on the Capitol crisis. He also tweeted:
While I don’t know if Val Venis still enjoys the use of cannabis, I know that cannabis can be laced with PCP. First, a quick primer on PCP:
Everyone has gone to smoke a fatty at one time or another only to discover it’s been laced with PCP (at least everyone I know). It’s a legitimate concern, so much so that the good folks at High Times have tips on how to tell if your weed has a little something extra in it:
To know if your weed is laced with Angel dust (a.k.a. PCP), examine it the same way you would for cocaine. Look for too much white powder on the outside of the buds.
Unfortunately, PCP can also be dissolved in a liquid that you can dip a joint into. When the joint dries, it will leave behind white crystals, but they may be harder to detect.
If you do stumble upon a cannabis/PCP daily double, High Times explains what you can expect:
If you’ve smoked weed laced with PCP, you’ll know it without a doubt. PCP is a powerful hallucinogen, and it will quickly detach you from reality. Look for severe disorientation, numbness, slurred speech and completely erratic urges and behaviors.
Be sure to seek medical attention immediately if you suspect you’ve smoked weed laced with PCP.
Looking at Val’s comments, I can’t help but wonder if this is what happened. How else to explain a rant that uses an obscene amount of capital letters. Venis should be aware that in some countries, the use of all capital letters is not only frowned upon but a capital offense.
Am I accusing Val Venis of intentionally or accidentally ingesting PCP before tweeting? No. It could just be a case of the proponent of individual rights feeling strongly about this matter. (I won’t even open the can of worms that is WWE Hall of Famer Donald J. Trump’s now-defunct Twitter account). What do you think of Val’s tweets? Let me know in the comments below.
