It never ceases to amaze me that alcohol is fine in most peoples minds, but marijuana or something that mimics it is sooooo bad. Such hypocrisy. Wake up people!

Legalize pot then we would not have to worry about K2...The only reason pot is not leagal (if ya all would do your home work) is because it would destroy the clothing industry among others and would save are forest from any further destruction.. HEMP was a huge success in making clothes and housing was not far behind untill the clothing industry got scared and the goverment stepped in.. Thats it in a nut shell.. POT is good and could pull us out of are national debt if taloired correctly! Shame on the goverment. Think about it people, a 21 year old kid can drink himself to death but if he smokes a harmless joint he goes to jail. Thanks uncle Sam for being such an ass.......

I dont understand why the emphasis is on stopping the use of K2 before even determining whether or not it is safe to use. Are we so determined to stop the use of a harmless substitute before it is even determined if it is bad? Seems like a knee-jerk reaction if ever there was one. Ease up folks. I'm betting those that are so concerned with K2 are using some substitute - Xanax, Valium, liquor etc.

What I don't understand is that they want to make it illegal because it is being misused. It's supposed to be incense from what I understand, but people are smoking it and now everyone is in "sky is falling" mode.
If we made illegal everything that was misused, we'd have almost nothing. Slap an age restriction on the stuff (like cold medicine, spray paint in some places, alcohol) and call it a day. We have bigger things to worry about.

Calvinist 'morality' strikes again. Have any studies been done to prove that this is harmful or is this the more of typical American 'Pleasure is bad' BS? People having fun!! We certainly can't allow that! Sounds like much ado about nothing.

Its not cytotoxic and its not carcinogenic, and there is no apparent toxicity level in animals.
States are retarded for doing this.
An anonymous and not scientifically published study has performed a cytotoxicity assay in human HepG2 hepatocellular carcinoma cells. It was found that JWH-018 showed little cytotoxicity with an IC50 >250 >μM. These results are consistent with the other cell based assays.[9]
Substance CYPs hERG Cytotox Genotox Rat Repeat Tox Rat PK
JWH-018 4/6 +ve *[9] Negative [9] Negative [9] Negative [9] Lethargy, Catatonia, Tachyphylaxis, No Organ Pathology [9] Bi-phasic, Well Distributed [9]
**Denotes positive results and indicates further testing needed to define the issue.

look kids are going to be kids no matter what we do as parents we can guide them the best we can until they are 18 and then we ship them off to school, they are going to experiment with drugs and sex most of the time but I don't think that we would be making a big deal if this k2 stuff was some kind of drink, the stuff is only being looked down at because it is synthetic marijuana, it would be far less dangerous if marijuana was legal because then our children wouldn't be smoking lab chemicals... SO MAKE K2 ILLEGAL AND LEGALIZE MARIJUANA its safer and more healthy and are children wont be dyeing on hoped up chemicals.... thanks all i have to say
