“Chlorophyll concentration analyses generated by Kepler lead us to believe that the level of THC in these marijuana plants is 3000% higher than the plants found on Earth.

The discovery could lead to a renewed interest in space exploration, especially within the younger segments of society. A manned mission in the near future is a real possibility. Harvesting the marijuana could prove to be a major hurdle, given the distances involved. However, the planet is situated at a place that is ideal as a refueling base for long interstellar flights.
A campaign to rename the planet is already underway and millions of votes have been received for various names.
