The DEA has temporarily banned the chemicals used to make K2 and the other silly herbal blends smoked by teens too stupid to cop real weed. For now, they’ll be classified in the same group as Schedule 1 drugs like cocaine, heroin, PCP, LSD, MDMA, Psilocin, pot, and other fun substances, which quite frankly, is disrespectful to said substances—at least they’re enjoyable.
Also, can the feds and the media stop calling it “synthetic marijuana”? It by no means mimics the effects of real pot and it’s highly inaccurate since there already is a drug marketed quite legally as “synthetic marijuana,” it’s called Marinol and it also sucks. Weed already has enough otherness to deal with, it doesn’t need the convenient and undue association that the media is running freely with:
