Scattered stoners around the world were ready to launch their own Mars One mission when NASA supposedly announced the discovery of a planet made of THC.
According to a NewsWatch 28 report, astrophysicist David Charbonneau revealed the discovery of a new planet – planet X6372-423 – that was detected with sufficient oxygen and nitrogen content to support human life. And all the weeds said life would like to smoke.
“Chlorophyll concentration analyzes generated by Kepler lead us to believe that the THC content in these marijuana plants is 3000% higher than the plants found on Earth. If that doesn’t motivate young people to explore space, then I don’t know what will.” ”, said the expert.
Unfortunately, those who want to go intergalactic for some ganja will have to temporarily suspend those plans as it was just a big joke.
News View 28 is actually satirical news, but that hasn’t stopped an overwhelming amount of fools from spreading the fake news via social media, according to the Inquisitor.

Rumor debunking website Snopes then had to come in and understand all the space madness, proving it was all a joke.

Though completely made up, the fictional Dr. Charbonneau a good point in favor of stoned space travel.
“There is no doubt that marijuana will be a valuable and indispensable resource for interstellar travel. Imagine it takes 140 years to travel from one planet to another, let’s say it’s going to be a really long journey. You better have rolled a few joints for the road,” said the fictional good doctor.
Besides, even if there really was a potted planet, Carl Sagan would probably have found it first.
