Browsing: synthetic cannabinoids


Over the past three years, manufacturers and retailers of so-called herbal incenses have popped up in all 50 states. It quickly became a multibillion-dollar industry built on products that had names like Crazy Eyes, Cowboy Kush, and Skull Killa.

It's recently come to my attention that certain factions of the legalization movement are boycotting THC-related events that allow synthetic "marijuana-substitutes" to display their wares, or have scantily clad "nurses" representing businesses purporting to be medical in nature. This is ridiculous and goes against every tenet of anti-prohibitionism I hold dear.

A dozen midshipmen have been kicked out of the US Naval Academy for using the synthetic marijuana known as “spice” or "K2." More than 150 Navy sailors have also been accused of using the drug, which is banned in the military. Now, a US Senate hearing is investigating the growing use of “spice” and the fake cocaine known as “bath salts.”

As of today, the Drug Enforcement Agency has banned "fake pot" substances, which use chemicals to purportedly replicate the effects of marijuana. Those substances had been in a legal limbo, with many states lacking laws to deal with them.
