False. delta-9 THC is converted to 11-hydroxy THC by the liver, which is a much stronger psychoactive compound. This, combined with the fact that your body still feels the effects of the delta-9 THC which compounds the effects of both, is the reason people get higher than they've ever been with edibles.

Perhaps we're drawn to them because they embody our creativity purchased from us, concentrated, and sold back. Bruce Springsteen would be just another singer-songwriter without the vocal trainers and production engineers, the technicians who work the lights, and the adoring gaze of millions; together these produce most of the meaning with find in him, as will as the illusion that he is solely responsible for it. Because human being are social animals, attention creates meaning and thus value: when everyone else runs to see whats going on, each of us can't help but do the same.
