Yay for legal drugs being vastly more dangerous than illegal ones

Wait, I saw this episode of Monk.

This kid had mental problems completely unrelated to any drug use.

Synthetic form of marijuana?

An Indianola teenager who smoked a potent, yet legal, drug reportedly suffered a severe panic attack, told friends he was "going to hell," then went home, and shot and killed himself.

IO think his death has more to do with religious hysteria than drugs. If he had no concept of hell, he'd have simply gone home and cleaned out the fridge.

This really needs either the dumbass or fail tag. There's nothing interesting about it.

Sure there is. We can make even more things illegal, because that works!
 
2010-06-20 12:08:36 PM
We just need to make everything illegal that anyone could possibly hurt themselves with.

Then, we... will... have.... peace...

This shiat again. In the 90's this stuff was all over the news and everybody was panicing over it because kids would make tea out of it and flip out. I thought most states outlawed it then or atleast tried to.

I remember a churchy girl showing up at a high school party, drinking two Budweisers, and screaming that the floor was covered in snakes. She had to be rassled into the car to take her home, and she burbled on about hellfire and demons the whole way.

Well if he was a true christian young man, he certainly sealed that deal.

During an apparent panic attack, Rozga said he was "going to hell," one friend told police. The attack led to a half-hour walk around a local park before Rozga told his friends he was going home to sleep, the police report said.

Instead, he went home and killed himself.



Has anyone considered the possibility that K2 just gave him psychic powers?

As Christians say, god has a plan for everyone, and we shouldn't question it.

Wait, drugs were involved? I personally dislike those! We should definitely ban them, since this was all the fault of the drugs.

That sounds about right. Teabaggers/republicans/neocons: The part of personal responsibility 'nothing is ever my fault'.

I don't like that stuff being called 'synthetic marijuana'. It provides ammo for the drug war. I can see it now... 'If just the synthetic version is this bad, then the real stuff must be farking terrible.' It doesn't matter that it isn't a synthetic version of anything.

How much does it cost? K2/Spice can cost up to $30-$35 per gram. By comparison, marijuana can sell for about $80 for 14 grams.

FIRST, you MORAN, comparison are normally done in the same unit of measure

K2 $35/gram
pot $6/gram

SECOND
what kind of MORAN would pay 6 times as much for FAKE pot when real POT is so cheap and safe??

Both Indianola Police Chief Steve Bonnett and Kendell, Iowa's drug policy coordinator, said they believed K2 was responsible for Rozga's death. "Increasingly within the last month, our office has received concerns," Kendell said in a release put out last week. "While most of these types of products are currently unregulated, in my opinion the effects they reportedly have on users are cause for concern."

if only there were a safe, all natural and mostly harmless substance which was legal instead. a substance which has decades of historical research showing that it was safe.

nah, we want to kill more children and we love the black market crime.

Exactly...while they are synthetic cannabinoids, they are not the same as those found in marijuana. That's kind of like saying ethanol is the same as what you put in a martini-- while they are in the same family (kissin cousins), they are NOT the same thing at all.

All this really should illustrate is when you control the REAL substance, people will turn to more dangerous analogues that aren't outlawed or can be gotten cheaply-- like people drinking mouthwash to get drunk.

Legalize marijuana and tax it; that is the best solution to problems like these.

K2 can be more dangerous than marijuana, Kendell said. "It causes hallucinations. That doesn't happen with marijuana."

DUH
The only thing pot is dangerous to is snack foods.

Vodka is literally ethanol that has been diluted with water, so you may want to revise your analogy.

Left off an "m"-- sorry about that. Methanol is what I was trying to compare to martinis-- one will give you beer goggles, the other will completely destroy your optic nerve.

People enjoy this stuff because it supposedly produces a much more intense but still managable hallucinagenic experience.

More to the point, this idiot thought he was going to hell, what's his brilliant solution to this unacceptable state of affairs, enter the seminary, live a better life? No, get on the express short bus. He won't be missed.

idiots like this ruin it for the rest of the people who can handle their shiat. Leary was on to something when he suggested drugs be legalized and people have to take psychological tests in order to get a license to use them.

Well, that's the problem. You smoke some chemical concoction that's trying to emulate pot, and you go loopy and off yourself. If you smoke the pure weed as God made it, you don't hallucinate, you don't go paranoid and you certainly don't feel possessed by Satan.

here's how I see the whole war on drugs:

young voter: 'hey, I want to have free love and smoke pot like my parents did when they were my age."

Baby boomer voter: 'f*ck no. cannabis is bad for you and abstinance only education is cheaper.'

YV: 'but...you spent 30 years getting f*cked up and screwing like sea otters.'

BB: 'and your point here is...?'
YV: 'My point here is that I want the same opportunities YOU had.'
BB: 'well you can't have 'em. now STFU and pay for my social security checks.'
YV: 'but that's not fair!'
BB: 'sucks to be you.'

Don't you guys see it's a slippery slope? You make drugs illegal and people will use legal drugs that are more deadlier than the illegal drugs.

That's why people are addicted to pharmaceutical drugs.

You got that from the article? I read it, and it pretty much focused exclusively on K2. I found it a very interesting read, enough for me to go to erowid and see what others experiences were like.
