I am so glad that Nederland and surrounding cities have banned these substances..The problem still remains with stores outside city limits that are in county who can still sell the stuff.How do we stop them from selling?It would be better if Jefferson County would bann these substances..

OR we could Legalize marijuana, which has NEVER caused an overdose and has no DIRECT harmful side-effects. Unlike the synthetic "pot" which is killing people left and right. let ppl who want to smoke, SMOKE MARIJUANA. and go on about their marry ways...
THAT would result in a significant decrease in the sale of the real killers being sold in convenience stores.
WHO KNOWS???
Maybe this 19yr old kid has a point... Or maybe we can keep letting the government control our lives and let our community kill it self...

It appears that the k2 incense folks were switching out ingredients in their k2 herb blends once a specific ingredient was indeed banned. Lawmakers are now closing that loophole, but I'm sure this won't be the end of synthetic marijuana products. Even now, places like http://www.k2incenseblend.com have legal everywhere products. For as long as marijuana is prohibited, there will be a demand for a legal alternative.

I know a bit about this subject, let me chime in. The government only banned certain chemicals. When you change the chemical by one molecule, it becomes a totally differen't chemical, making it legal again. The chemicals in the incense work on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, much like Marijuana. Here is the fun part, legally, with the newest ban in Texas, arresting you for it is againt the law. YES, it's against the law to arrest you for it. When they made these chemicals illegal with the Sept 1st ban, they didn't look into the chemical makeup of alot of other things. Did you know that Tylenol, when metabolized in the body, turns into Am-404 a banned chemical that works off of those receptors in the brain? Also, other things like white chocolate, and even motor oil have banned, synthetic chemicals in them. According to the Constitution of the United States, you are protected from Descrimitory Arrest. That means, if they arrest you for having incense, with a banned chemical, they have to bust every store that is selling Tylenol, Motor oil, and White Chocolate, and a host of other things. By not busting those stores, for possesing items with the same banned chemicals, they are breaking the law. So my advice to you is: If you are busted, copy down what I have said, and present it to a lawyer. I PROMISE the charges have to be dropped. Also, feel free to post an article where incense has killed someone. To date, the only people that have died, died from suicide, or underlying medical conditions. Im not saying it's good for you in any way, most of these chemicals aside from the one made by Bayer, hasn't been tested on humans. They can cause a whole host of medical problems, mostly mentally. I DO think they should have it banned, but I also think they should reword this ban so they aren't arresting people for the same chemicals that are in some of the products WAL-MART sells. On a last note, there are now 50-state legal blends with new chemicals that metabolize in a differen't way as to not directly affect the CB1 and CB2 receptors. They are weaker, but legal.
