K2 is one of a variety of artificial marijuana products on the market that most people do not know about but which is being reported in relation to a number of deaths which are only now being discovered. The problem is that this isn't detected in the blood like most drugs but in at least one death, it's the suspected cause leading many to fear this could be something that's flown under the radar and several reports now related to this product are raising fears it could be responsible. In fact, one of the manufacturers even warns you it's not meant for human consumption... although it's being sold to people at $59.95 where the only purpose could be for human consumption.

However, before "make marijuana legal" supporters start saying this is why it should be made legal, most studies relate that marijuana is actually more dangerous than cigarettes. It has 33 of the same cancer causing chemicals and 50 times the amount of tar and tar is what causes lung cancer. It causes memory loss, loss of coordination, mood changes (sometimes bringing about extreme violence) and for those who say marijuana has health benefits... oddly enough, so does tobacco. Yet the people promoting marijuana should be legalized, with all the side effects it has that tobacco does not have, and the fact it has even greater potential to cause cancer than tobacco... they want to outlaw tobacco and make marijuana legal.

Not only that, but the people supporting making medical marijuana legal know full well that where it has been made legal that most of the prescriptions made are for perfectly healthy people who are getting their high using terminally ill people as a means to get their fix.

Now, we are discovering that others are trying to sneak artificial marijuana past us and the only thing this stuff is meant to do is make you high. There's no health benefits at all related to K2 and it's marketed as incense but everyone investigating this has found it's not meant to be used as incense so the product is a complete.

And where do the studies I mention saying marijuana is dangerous and contains more cancer causing tar and 33 of the same cancer causing agents in tobacco... California and most of them come from studies done to prove marijuana is actually safe.

The only reason people think marijuana is safe is because it's illegal and not enough statistics exist to prove if it is or isn't safe. Most people who smoke tobacco do not get cancer or suffer ill health effects. For all the deaths and health problems, those are only a small percentage of people who smoke tobacco... and the only reason marijuana doesn't do more damage is that it's illegal which ironically, most who want marijuana legalized want to do with tobacco.

Don't delude yourselves, the very fact this product and others like it exist is to give you the same high marijuana offers and if that doesn't wake up all you people sitting on the fence or who are undecided... nothing will. A century from now we'll be fighting trying to eliminate all the deaths caused by marijuana wondering how anyone could be stupid enough to think this stuff was safe. That's exactly what happened with tobacco as we were told it was safe and had beneficial health effects also about a century ago and the only one who listened was... Adolf Hitler who banned it in Nazi Germany. So who will listen to reason about marijuana? The next world dictator... or people with common sense and the intelligence not to be fooled by people misled by potheads into thinking marijuana is good for you while they exploit the terminally ill and pass off artificial marijuana for nothing more than a high with no care if it ruins lives or kills people.

K2 may be the smoking gun revealing what lengths potheads will go to in order to get a fix and what lengths some corporate enterprises may go to for a buck... will you let your kids pay the price?

    K2 may have some unknown medical use when taken in the right dose, who knows?

    but cannabis, tobacco, poppies, coca, and many other plants all have medical uses that are overlooked because of society's view of them, i believe that recreational use for cannabis and tobacco is only bad when the substance is smoked and/or overused. typically cannabis smokers smoke A LOT less than tobacco smokers and tobacco is processed causing the alkaloids to be altered, becoming harmful nitrosamines that wouldn't be found when it is fresh, but it doesn't matter that smoking it is harmful as SMOKING IS OBSOLETE now that we have vaporizers and any negative effects resulting from how the substance was used or administered in the past is irrelevant to the effects of the chemicals contained within them.

    moderation is fine and something that consenting adults of legal age should be able to decide for themselves. prohibition of any drug is wrong and doesn't work.

    My husband suffers addiction. He smoked marijuana and when I got pregnant he started smoking k2. I have 2 sit everday and basically watch him destroy our marriage bc all he wants 2 do is smoke so he can lose touch w reality. In reality he is so accustomed 2 not having 2 deal w reality when it is time he has 2 face up he bails....on not just me, but his 6 month old daughter. It tears my heart out everyday. I allow him 2 do in fear if I don't he will leave his family. Its illegal 2 abuse prescription pills or any other mind altering substance so my belief is it should all be illegalized bc ppl don't want it around 4 occassional use they end up addicted and abuse the substance. Only patients that benefits should be allowed any of it by prescription only. Its rediculous so many people can't deal with reality without using a mind hindering substance! Its pathetic....

    Why are so many people determined to destroy their lives with this or any other kind of drug they can get their hands on?

    Some say it's in human nature to be self destructive. This particular drug has no effect other than to get high... no health benefits. Tobacco has health benefits with none of the side effects marijuana has except maybe causing cancer. And how are law enforcement agents going to patrol for this when everyone smoking marijuana looks like they're smoking a cigarette. If it's made legal, it has to be treated like alcohol and kept out of the general public or you'll have potheads everywhere cigarettes are allowed and where we don't allow alcohol.

    Because you can make alcohol anywhere and the government can't be everywhere. The reason they lifted prohibition was because of all the crime it created but also because anyone with a little knowledge can make it... they even make it in jail, did you know that lol.

    All you need for alcohol is some form or fermentation or distillation.

    And marijuana's not as dangerous as cigarettes, it's more dangerous which was the point I'm making. People like to say marijuana cures cancer... it doesn't as the truth is it has fifty times the tar as tobacco and tar's what causes lung cancer. The effects they mention about blood circulation and so forth... doesn't help a bit if it coats your lungs with tar fifty times as fast. People are trying to ban tobacco who are trying to legalize marijuana but tobacco has none of the narcotic effects, mood altering affects, problems with imbalance or perception or memory problems.

    Ok... here's one for you. How does law enforcement stop you from smoking this when it's made legal in places tobacco is legal but marijuana wouldn't be... alcohol is regulated and it's fairly easy to tell someones drinking alcohol. Ok, so how does a police officer know when you are smoking marijuana driving down the highway or in a store? Would it be legal only in your home? Would...

We actually have many control factors where alcohol is concerned that most never think of and alcohol is so cheap compared to making it yourself people don't do it.

    There are people who point to the health benefits of every illegal drug and most were actually created with a specific health benefit in mind like cocaine... they were made illegal because they were addictive and mind altering so people wanted them for their narcotic effect instead of their health benefits.

    That's the point I made about medical marijuana as people are willing to use dying terminally ill patients to make marijuana legal just to get their fix... and you truly do have to be someone of low moral character to use terminally ill people, generally dying children, to legalize marijuana just so you can get high.

    Prostitution would benefit everyone if we made it legal because we could better prevent the spread of disease, stop women being abused, save millions fighting it and make hundreds of millions in tax dollars... so why do so many support making it illegal when women have the right to do what they want with their bodies?

    Why not make gambling legal everywhere?

    Libertarians like Geraldo Rivera have stated many times they believe all illegal drugs should be made legal and when asked if they kill people or result in them doing harm to others... he states that people should have the right to choose what to do with their lives unless it harms others... then admits that most of these drugs have mind altering effects that would lead them to harm others which he then says we would deal with in the proper legal manner but we have no right to deny access to adults of the choice to use these drugs if they want.

    We have enough problems with alcohol would you not agree? So let's double the problem when we can't even afford the problem booze causes, the violence and the death... where do you draw the line?

    I do think Prostitution should be legalized. I really do....people are not violent on Marijuana, and the people who are smoking it only hurt themselves. We are spending an obscene amount of money prosecuting and incarcerating people for doing something that is no more harmful than alcohol. Also, there are legal drugs that are supposed to be used for prescription only that are FAR more dangerous than Marijuana, like Oxycontin, Ambien, Adderall, Percocet, Dilautid, and others...If you can't even get a prescription for Marijuana then why can you get a prescription for these? They are FAR more addictive than Marijuana, and the FASTEST growing group of drug addicts seeking treatment. The Marijuana addiction is easier to break than cigarettes. A cigarette is thought to be more addictive than cocaine, or heroin. Also Cigarette companies target children under 18. Yet we allow that to continue. I am not for banning tobacco. I am for legalization of a drug that is less dangerous than many that are already legal.

    Sir. You are so wrong in every bit of information you have posted on this subject of marijuana. so please do everyone a favor and shut up. marijuana has caused 0 deaths. people are not violent on pot. people do not loose coordination. millions drive on it everyday under the radar. it is not at all as dangerous as tobacco. anyone who is dumb enough to say some of the things you are saying shouldn't even have the right to have an opinion or a voice to share that opinion. please delete your account on here and start over my friend because you have embarrassed yourself beyond the point of recovery. Thank you.
