I wonder if law enforcement officials are really concerned about the health and welfare of it's citizenry or if this is just another elaborate ruse based on the fact that they can't do anything about it. Either way, I can think of better things to spend money on and I agree that anyone that smokes it are idiots. But just because they smoke K2 or the real thing doesn't make them criminals. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Marijuana is a plant, not a drug.

When will this stupid society realize that marijuana is not harmful.

Leave it up to your elected loser officials to tell you what to do, Ohio Zombies.

bozo, look around, society isnt idiotic, they either dont really care or are all about it. its the media and cops who dont get it. Dont you notice how they talk outa both sides of their mouths about drugs being an enforcement issue because they are always growing in popularity among some demographic or another. Repeat, Growing in Popularity, hence social acceptance. Why do you think there is a growing fight between legalize it folks and cops. Whole states are fighting the federals on medical marijuana rights. When you wanna talk about society, try being a part of it first.

BUT it's being sprayed with a CHEMICAL compound thus likely that it is much more harmful than organic THC.

Perhaps this is one of the things which all the anti-tobacco goons have been abusing to cause their delusions.

The bottom line is this the Government doesn't like anyone else selling "drugs" it takes money out of their pockets. They'd rather you buy their drugs (prescription and otherwise)even if they are more harmful and addictive. If the government really cared about peoples safety and health they'd ban cigarettes- but this nation was built partly on tobacco so it will never be declared illegal even though it fits the definition of a schedule 1 drug to a T.

Schedule 1 drugs:

A) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.

(B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.

(C) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

Yeah, lets' smoke something that has no knowledge of long term, or short term for that matter, effects on your mind or body, and was developed in a chemistry lab as an experiment.

Users of thise sound about as bright as those who huff glue, paint thinner, etc.

I never understood why people want to get high - life is great the way it is.

Quick review, minus the legalities and incriminating comments. YMMV:
So far I have tried 3 types (in order): Serenity Now from WB&S for $30 for 1g. Smooth, worked as advertised, lasted 30 min ish. It gave 1 of my "seasoned" friends a headache the first time he used it (only person of 5 that had one, and only variety that caused a headache).
Second was from eBay called Swerve. 3.5g for $30. By far the strongest, but zero flavor and very harsh. Lasts almost 2 hrs!
Third is K2 Blue. Go Google where to get it from, but $35 for 3g is about the going price. Very aromatic; tasted great and was a wonderful combo of herbs. Almost as strong as Swerve, but everyone really ENJOYED using. Gave everyone a very happy experience that lasted around 1 1/2 hours. Absolutely my overall favorite, but not as strong as Swerve.
I like 3/4 Swerve and 1/4 K2 Blue as a blend that does a WONDERFUL job. That combo has lasted strongly for almost 2 hrs, full effect gone in about 3 1/2.
Pleading the 5th, this is better than anything "real" I've used in years at 1/4th the price but does not do 1 major thing the "real" stuff does: releave pain: I have severe back pains and this stuff does nothing to releave my pain where the "real" stuff does. But let me tell you, I don't care that I have my pain though I can still feel it!!:)
I will enjoy this while it's legal; coming from a seasoned <plead the 5th here>, there is no medicinal usage qualities (at least to me) that the "real" stuff has; this just gets you high as heck.
Above all else, DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE STRONG "STUFF" BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE READY FOR THE EXPERIENCE; it takes you to 15 on a scale of 1-10 in about 1-2 minutes. That's not a fun experience if you don't know what to expect, especially almost instantly. Lastly, do not use with ANY alcohol, as it will REALLY intensify the effects and may just be too much to handle for those inexperienced.
