Default K2 Synthetic Marijuana

Quote:
It smokes like marijuana, gets users high like marijuana, it even sells at prices similar to marijuana but a new blend of herbs and spices called K2 is completely legal and law enforcement is struggling to figure out how to handle it.

I read this article the other day and it took me two days to remember the name and find this article. As I was searching for it, I found this article that came out today in Philadelphia.

Quote:
Federal agents are cracking down on imports of a synthetic marijuana that has started appearing in the Philadelphia area.


It is not illegal in any state to possess the substance, but Food and Drug Administration regulations bar its import and sale because it is not a tested and approved drug.


Eighty-five parcels arriving from Amsterdam at a UPS facility at Philadelphia International Airport were detained and then seized after tests proved positive for the drug, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Source

So this stuff seems to be making quite the scene (google is full of recent articles) and a few states are already trying to make it illegal. Is this seriously something to be wasting time and money on?

Fucking idiots and to think that the excuse that was used for the airport was because K2 isn't approved by the FDA! I guess we should all just raid GNC now. That fucking store is chalk full of supplements that aren't FDA approved

Haven't seen any here as we're a big growing area but heard it's definitely being marketed in major cities.

All the feds have to do to outlaw it is put it on their list. I'm sure DEA donut chompers are slobbering at the thought of a new entry meaning more money for their stupid and failed war on drugs.

If it's completely legal, how law enforcement should handle it should be a no brainer.


*sigh*

Unfortunately its composed of natural ingredients. Big pharma lobbyists move quickly to eliminate that sort of potential competition for their painkillers.

My god man, think of the new LE jobs, justice system clogging, legal fees, prison expansion and parole jobs another illegal drug can furnish. Real Americans will fight for this natural drug to be made illegal and mandatory serious prison time served for possession without a physician's prescription.

It’s banned in much of Europe, but not yet regulated in the States.
Very interesting. I wonder how it is illegal in Europe?

Whenever it came into competition with their pharmaceutical industries.

I wish I could find a place to buy some of this stuff online to give it a try. I have my resume out there and never know when I may have to take a drug test. Having an alternative to the real thing would be nice.
