synthetic weed becoming ilegal
    #444918 - 07/11/10 02:56 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

You know bad shit wouldnt happen if they would just legalize already.

I saw an ariticle like this, this morning in the houston chronicle.

Seated in a hookah lounge in the Tower Grove district, Albert Kuo trained his lighter above a marbleized glass pipe stuffed with synthetic marijuana. Inhaling deeply, Kuo, an art student at an area college, singed the pipe’s leafy contents, emitting a musky cloud of smoke.

Kuo, 25, had gathered here with a small cohort of friends for what could be the last time they legally get high in Missouri on a substance known popularly as K2, a blend of herbs treated with synthetic marijuana.

On Tuesday, Gov. Jeremiah W. “Jay” Nixon, a Democrat, signed a bill prohibiting possession of K2. Missouri is the nation’s eighth state this year to ban the substance, which has sent users to emergency rooms across the country complaining of everything from elevated heart rates and paranoia to vomiting and hallucinations.

Investigators blame the drug in at least one death, and this month, Gov. Mike D. Beebe of Arkansas, a Democrat, signed an emergency order banning the substance. Similar prohibitions are pending or awaiting governors’ signatures in at least six other states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Often marketed as incense, K2 is sold openly in gas stations, head shops and, of course, online. It can sell for as much as $40 per gram.

Many users say they are undaunted by reports of negative reactions to the drug. K2 does not show up on drug tests, and users say that while they would like to know what is in it, they would take their chances if it means a clean urine test.

The Missouri ban, which goes into effect Aug. 28, prohibits several cannabinoids that investigators have found in K2 and related products. Nevertheless, investigators and researchers say bans such as the one in Missouri are little more than “Band-Aids” that street chemists can sidestep with a slight alteration to a chemical’s molecular structure. “Once it goes illegal, I already have something to replace it with,” said Micah Riggs, who sells the product at his coffee shop in Kansas City. “There are hundreds of these synthetics, and we just go about it a couple of them at a time.”

Investigators say a more effective ban might arise once the Drug Enforcement Administration completes its review of cannabinoids, placing them under the Controlled Substances Act. Currently, however, only one such substance is controlled under the act, although the agency has listed four others as “chemicals of concern.”

You know it was just a matter of time before they would do this. If some big ass company was backing it and could afford lobbyist then this would not even be a discussion about it. I have not tried this stuff yet, but I admit I ordered some to see what it is like, and since I am studying for the job hunt I am really missing my favorite thing, and thought this might help get me by for now.

Just proof prohibition is only creating a market for drugs of a more unknown and possibly dangerous nature.
