The accurate term would be that the XLR11 compound is cannabinoid receptor agonist. Cannabinoids by themselves are not foreign to human body. Breastmilk contains elevated amounts of cannabinoids. An example of a correctly labelled synthetic cannabinoid would be Marinol. The Marinol was created to circumvent the federal prohibation of cultivation of natural cannibis such as marijuana plant for research and medical usa. Neither Marinol, nor the plant Marijuana will cause kidney damage. We know rat poison damages kidneys, but no chemical resemblance to marijuana. Why compare apples with bananas. Could someone please try harder to understand the topic before copy pasting it to blog. Please remove federal prohibation of marijuana. The K2 already injured enough people. The DEA should be blamed for the health problems these K2 experiments lead to. The DEA will never admit fault, or assume responsiblity - this much is certain.

This day and age the government says just about everything is bad for you. I'm tired of hearing it your going to die anyway. It's my body I should be able to put whatever I want in it. I see people all the time dieing from cancer that don't smoke or drink any and never have. I'm sick of hearing that everythings bad for you give it a rest already
