"We know he's going to die...it's just a question of when."

Yea....that's the exact same as every single other person on this earth.

Wait, he's 22?! Tell him to grow up and get some real pot.

Cocaine is great, if you have a lot of money.

Of course it's worse than cocaine. Everything's worse than cocaine.

If weed were legal, K2 wouldn't be a thing.

Cocaine, as it turns out, is actually amazingly benign when not heavily abused.

Nah, it would still be there. Hell, you've got a drug out there that literally ROTS YOUR SKIN OFF and yet people still try it.

Now would a lot less people try it if weed were legalized? Sure I can believe that. But there will always be outliers who want to try shiat simply because it's there and available.

Pretty much this. The prohibitionists have it completely backwards. Pot isn't a "gateway drug"; the criminalization of pot creates demand for other drugs, and since it's all criminalized, you end up getting it through the same black market channels.

thurstonxhowell: If weed were legal, K2 wouldn't be a thing.


Yes it would.  People are idiots.  They will find a high to match their personalities/tastes and run with it.  Most people like pot because it can cause euphoria with either a slight upper sensation or slight downer sensation depending on the strain.  The problem is some people just plain want to feel something other than euphoria.

I was not a fan of cocaine.  Makes the back of your throat taste like crap.  It's like snotty acid reflux with a hint of kersine.

If you are looking for a high, try Olympus Mons.

But it also can cause seizures, high blood pressure and, in cases like Tucker's, death.


So calling it "synthetic marijuana" is bullshiat.

As a couple of people have already hinted, to me, K2 is nothing but a mountain in Baltistan (Pakistan).

Had to Google that.

Then I had to Google K2, the drug. It's synthetic "marijuana". I don't know how that could kill anybody unless they took a major over-dose. I can see the mountain killing people though. It is the second highest in the world. One of it's several names is Godwin-Austen.

Ha! ha! I just Godwin-Austened this thread, dudes and dudettes!

If you can't persuade your kid from doing something he knows is dangerous, then you've already failed as a parent.  Cut your loses, take out a life insurance policy on him, and let him go.

Of course it's bullshiat. The only synthetic marijuana is MarinolTM and that's controlled by Big Pharma.

But it's an easy way to scare parents and trick dumb stoners into thinking it's a suitable substitute.
 
2013-12-31 11:59:16 AM  
And this stuff only even exists because a plant that nobody has ever died from an overdose of in the history of mankind, and has been shown to have many therapeutic qualities, is illegal because reasons.

Kinda gives it away that it is a SHENANIGANS dealeo, eh?
Make a substance illegal and then allow selling a dangerous drug as "legal" with the bullzhit stolen name.
Sounds like a business plan for something or other.

And you want to call this crap The LAW?
seriously?

There will be backlash.

Keep in mind, just because K2 is advertised as synthetic marijuana, and has a similar high to marijuana, doesn't mean it actually is marijuana.  K2 is loaded with chemicals that have really dangerous effects on people.

I'm not saying all stoners are stupid, nor am I saying all stupid people are stoners. Think of a Venn Diagram. You've got stupid people in one circle, and stoners in the other. This shiat appeals to the small minority that fits both groups, or the stupid stoners.

hardinparamedic: You keep thinking that. Street chemists will try anything.


I think there's some truth to the point that making relatively safe drugs hard to get increases risky behavior.  After the Pickard was busted, and the availability of LSD dropped substantially, a lot of my trippy-dippy friends ended up experimenting with drugs that the otherwise would have never tried - which were all far more dangerous than LSD.  Sometimes having relatively safe options available will keep people from getting "desperate" and trying the really weird stuff.

WTF?  Why would the father even try that synthetic drug stuff?  I would think that after seeing what happened to his son he would have left it alone.

Fine, then. K2 would be as common as 2-C-I or methcathinone. It'd be there, but you'd basically never hear about it.

Look, if I can't trust people who failed high-school chemistry to make safe drugs from a recipe they found on the internet, who can I trust?

The reason people use the flesh rotting stuff is that they are already addicted (to opiates? Is that what it is?) and it is dirt cheap. People who are not already worn down to the point of caring only for their next fix don't use it, as I understand it.

There's no accounting for stupidity though. When I was in high school I knew a kid who would take white printer paper and wrap up ordinary grass, like from a lawn, and smoke it. He thought he was hot shiat too.

And the Father of the kid who died from drinking too much alcohol says that teen drinking is worse than cocaine.
And the Father of the kid who died while texting and walked into a moving bus says that teen texting is worse than cocaine.
And the Father of the kid who committed suicide says that high school bullying is worse than cocaine.
etc, etc, etc....

People are pretty stupid.  Regular people are really bad at rationally assessing risk and reward.  Emotional people are REALLY REALLY bad at it.

No it wouldn't..  The only people that smoke this stuff are the people that are on probation or parole.. Everyone that uses this stuff wishes they could smoke pot..  Its only a substitute

/was on probation
//smoked k2 until i could get the real shiat
///never touched the fake stuff again
