During the late 1970s, a controversial program sponsored by the US government sprayed paraquat on cannabis fields in Mexico.
Since much of this cannabis was subsequently smoked by Americans, the US government's "Paraquat Pot" program stirred much debate. Perhaps in an attempt to deter people from using cannabis, representatives of the program warned that spraying rendered the crop unsafe to smoke.
However, a 1995 study found that "no lung or other injury in cannabis users has ever been attributed to paraquat contamination".
Paraquat hasn't been used since the then, not to mention it's legal to grow in most South American countries... they put their big boy britches on.
In the States where it's legal the vast majority of it is grown indoors.
If you run across a bag of dirt smelling seed weed you stashed under the couch in 1978, I'd recommend you throw it away, it'll probably give you a headache after all this time.
