JWH-018 (1-pentyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indol e) is an analgesic chemical from the aminoalkylindole family, which acts as a cannabinoid agonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, with some selectivity for CB2.[1][2][3] It produces effects in animals very similar to those of THC; some ppl beleive this or a cousin is the main psychoactive ingredient

F*** that man alcohol KILLS people every year in a variety of ways but it's still perfectly legal. Just as long as you're 21. Police put this type of s*** up on the air in an effort to condemn products such as this. It's drug war propaganda bull s***. It's the new reefer madness. It clearly states that K2 is not for human consumption. It's an incense. Stick a fork in it.

actually, to be precise it merely states: "Not for Consumption". Look up the definition for the word "Consume" and you'll find that if K2 is not meant for consumption then it obviously is sold as something that looks pretty and is not meant to be disturbed. I for one will smoke it, because it is not yet illegal. If something bad happens to me because of it, I will let you all know about it.

I believe every word of it! I have heard that it is only supposed to be like a marajuana high but some friends of mine and I did it this weekend and it was the worst experience of our lives! One of our friends has done it plenty of times and has no bad experiences. I could not tell the difference between reality. We all thought we were going to die and thought we would never be normal again. I was also vomitting. I will never do anything like that again and will fight for making it illegal!

I have had experiences exactly like this while I was only drinking alcohol. Therefore, by your logic, alcohol should be illegal. Why do you care if other people smoke it? Like THC, JWH-018 affects everyone differently. If you don't enjoy it, don't do it. Just don't try to take away my right to do so.

I think that any drug, or alcohol, or incense, can cause an allergic reaction, and heed should be using if you have had that. But the majority doesn't have that reaction, and does see it as an alternative on the medicinal side, for things like fibermalgia, anxiety, leukemia...let me know when someone dies from it, and I may be convinced. But none have. But it's been tested, and is NOT a drug, simply herbs with a 'kick'. If anything, the government won't let it stay legal because they cannot tax it like cigarettes or alcohol. I say to each their own. If you want to be upset about a REAL drug? Let's look at the people addicted to meth (not legal, but used with household cleaners, like Drano, and Xanex, which IS legal and the repercussions from that or alcohol far exceeds this 'panic attack' the nation is having over this incense. Too much regulation, but not in the right areas. Self righteous people need to stand back and take a look at the alternatives here...being blind to it doesn't make it go away.

One more thing...parental control begins at home. Just because it's legal, the parents don't have to condone their 14 or 15 year olds doing anything. If they're watching what their kids are doing? They'd be ahead of the game. If your Drano was missing from your kitchen cabinet and you thought your children was using it, would you boycott Drano for making it? lol Same thing. With anything comes responsibility. Alcohol, marijuana, whatever...but it's the parents responsibility to maintain their children and their moral upbringing...not Procter and Gamble, or Dow.

Screw that. K2 is only harmful in the hands of dumb kids. It is a great herbal smoke and helps a lot of people with pain and other medicinal problems.
People say the ingredients make it harmful, well shut up. It's the people that don't know what they're doing. I found an ingredients guide and it looks straight to me. http://whatisk2.blogspot.com/2009/11/k2-ingre...
K2 ALL DAY!!
