This "stuff" can't just be regulated. It's a mixture of several harmless herbs with a cocktail of various and very newly discovered psychoactive powders. What exactly would they regulate? Incense? This stuff is legal because it clearly says on the package NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. You can't just assume everyone is smoking it and it is safe for you to do so. Kids can get ahold of gasoline, antifreeze and bleach a lot easier than they can get ahold of LEGAL PHUNK. Think of Wal-Mart and all the chemicals on the shelves that a child could "get a hold of".. The world is never going to be safe dude, don't blame it on the con artists at Tebb's. Like you said, you allowed yourself to be suckered.So this "legal phunk" is poison.
I don't give two fuckin shits about its claimed legality or the loopholes they use to claim it as something else. Its fuckin nonsense when you have arguments like "oh well it says not for human consumption on it so don't smoke it!"
Let's cut the shit and just put it out there: No one is using this stuff as traditional incense. Don't argue it, it just makes you accomplice to the fact and ignorant of its intended usage. They are smoking it to get high. They aren't putting it in a tray and freshening up a room with it, they are SMOKING IT.
And yes, sadly I made the mistake of buying this stuff. I allowed myself to be suckered into the delusion that "legal phunk" is legal, therefore safe.
THIS STUFF IS POISON. Pure poison.
It resulted in probably the worst night of my life. I had a friend smoke this stuff, approximately 2 hits from a pipe and within 10 minutes she was on her back, vomiting, and having a terrifying seizure. She collapsed in my arms.(Had I not been there I fear she would have died.) he was completely gone at that point, and for almost 3 minutes could not be pulled out of it. The entire time she was screaming as if something was killing her. Her faced was pulled so tightly i couldn't open her eyes. Can you imagine that? It's seared into my memory.
She snapped back to reality and immediately was completely paranoid. She kept saying she had gone insane. Her entire body was shaking and her pupils were almost completely dilated. She was delusional that someone was going to come get her. This lasted for almost two hours during which, she continued to vomit violently, and say she had gone insane.
This is a public forum so I expect a fair amount of people calling bullshit, but you really need to consider what might happen with this stuff. What if a kid got ahold of it? And the question has to be asked, just what is in it? does anyone know for sure completely? Why isn't this stuff being regulated or banned? How come someone can throw this stuff together in some back room put it in a bag and sell it without anyone knowing exactly is in it? How is that legal?
Your friend was probably allergic to one or more of the 8 + ingredients, because i've smoked it and personally i think it's OK. More of a trip than a stone. I would probably smoke it again but I wouldn't pay $21 for a bag of it.
