Well legal pot growers absolutely can (and are required to) measure THC levels before they sell it. As far as buying on the street there are about three levels of strength and the price usually reflects that. BUT the difference is if you drink more wine or beer you will get more drunk. You can only get so high smoking 10 joints in 30 minutes gets you as high as smoking 5 joints in the same amount of time. The idea that you dont know what youre getting comes from ONE person in NY in the 70's who got people sick from smoking Raid. In reality your weed is either compressed brown crap from mexico, Potent stuff from canada and california or mid grade stuff grown by suburban kids in their parents garage. Most smokers know what they're getting

I agree with everything you said except the part in bold. It actually is a funny prank IMO.

(*I thought it was semi-funny too, yet not creative enough. REAL pranksters would have been able to get those brownies on the buffet table of the Annual Alumni Banquet & Fund Raiser. The University would have been sooo embarrassed by well-heeled Colorado socialites skinny-dipping in the Dalton Trumbo Fountain that the news report would have been immediately quashed. You can't be prosecuted for something that "never happened". Now THAT'S funny AND creative. The panties around here seem to have become increasingly easy to get wadded-up over the last few years. so I simply didn't want to kick that hornet's nest.)

Yes but this only serves to make the higher quality variants more widely available, not to somehow magically make all pot in the world stronger as a whole.
I agree that SOME people may have had knowledge of mixing strains to improve pot, but common sense tells us that technology in horticulture has improved drastically over the last 100 years. Are you denying that the access to information on the internet has not increased the knowledge of those who would not have access to technology, techniques, or other experienced people?
The availability of say 7%-13% THC nowadays is similar to the availability of 2%-6% in the '60s; but it doesn't mean that 7%+ didn't exist in that time period, just that it was more rare to find, more expensive (taking inflation into account).
Today in labs, under heavily controlled conditions, the Government has +/-27% THC made for medical applications, for those who are truly suffering, and not just looking to destroy their pantry. But this still compares to strains the Military grew in the '70s that capped out at about 25%; so we're still looking at a +/-2% increase over a few decades. Still nothing over 30% has ever been heard of, and currently is thought to be 'impossible'.
