Cannabis #196
This ain't your garden variety bud, no sir. Torn's Cannabis is so strong it'll melt the anxiety from your bones and dribble it out your ass. After a couple of puffs, you'll feel a special kind of relaxed that rids you of all fear, rendering you capable of some seriously heinous acts. Burgle a home? Why not. Pickpocket an old lady? Sounds fun! Dismember and dispose of a corpse you say? That's just a walk in the park, quite literally.
