1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

    THCVA-A - A new additional marker for illegal cannabis consumption
    Forensic Science International (eprint before final publication)

    Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid A (Δ9-THCVA-A) is a readily detectable marker present in cannabis products but not in synthetic Δ9-tetrahydrocannbinol (dronabinol) samples that are found legal medications, such as Marinol(R).
    The consumption of illegal cannabis products derived from the C. sativa plant was proved in the described case.
