"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.

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.

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.

But it's an easy way to scare parents and trick dumb stoners into thinking it's a suitable substitute.

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.

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.

local business "discovered" K2 due to employee behavior on job
(it was new to them) and (appears to have more effects than pot  (not in a good way )

1. new drug testing kits now on hand (old kits did not detect)
2. employees caught thought it was still legal (year or two out of date)

They're synthesized cannabanoids which is the cancer stopping, pain relieving "body high" but lack the thc which is the actual fun part of cannabis so often other hallucinogens are added.  Lacking thc is part of the appeal so people on probation or regular job drug screens can still pass drug tests.  But more sophisticated tests can identify raised levels of cannabanoids.  Check and see what "panels" they test for before you try to beat the system.  And don't just buy anything at head shops or off the internet which is akin to buying meth in a midwestern trailer park who the fark knows what chemicals are in it or what quality it is.  Get the German made Bonzai brand Winter Blend aromatic potpourri.

I was hooked on that shiat for about 3 years.     Its been around longer than just the past couple.     

Never, ever, ever, would I touch that stuff again.  I had serious withdrawls when I was quitting, there were times when I couldn't sleep because I was too nervious or shaking too much.  I thought about checking myself into a rehab for it.  I was stealing from my family to buy it daily, etc.  Hate it, hate what it made me do.  When Pot becomes legal or medically available, i'll smoke up again.  Until then, i'll just stick to alcohol.

Krokodil is desomorphine with a shiatload of impurities. It's not the desomorphine that does those grotesque wounds, it's the shiat they cook codeine with to convert it into the drug.

K2 is a synthetic cannabanoid that was developed to research the effects of cannabanoid receptors on schizophrenic disorders as part of a PH.d thesis, and sat in a file cabinet at a university for decades until some young, enterprising man found it and decided he could trip balls on it. Unfortunately for us, it also has qualities similar to Methamphetamine and LSD.

Theres plenty of doctors that will prescribe whatever you want so you can have drugs and a note from your doctor for your P.O.  Just look up chiropractors or pain clinics in your area.  Then you can mess with synthetic heroin and ecstacy to go with your synthetic pot and still finish your probation.  But you can't have pot or booze.  They'll throw you're ass in jail for that.  Our drug laws are made by tards and fundies.

"I don't know what it's going to take," a tearful Brandt said Monday. "It's killing our family."

I'll tell you what it's going to take. It's going to take an executive order and or an act of Congress to legalize marijuana so junior there can get high safely without fear of reprisal from fascist arse holes like Eric Holder. But seeing that that's not what's going to happen anytime soon I'm reasonably certain that your kid will continue to be in and out of rehab for a long time.

Well, everything has an LD50, one could overdose on table salt or even water.  But to get there on cannabis would be for all intents and purposes impossible.  MAYBE if you ate an heroic amount of edibles made from highly concentrated hash, MAYBE that could be lethal.  Smoking it, no way in hell, you'd die of CO poisoning first.

Not trying to say this guy is Father of the Year, but this comment is just dumb.  Kids are inherently stupid and will definitely try things that they know are dangerous. In my day it was huffing aerosol, playing the 'passout game', skateboarding, and yes, even some questionable drugs.  Calling the kid stupid is redundant... he's a kid.  Calling the father a failure is a little harsh.  He just lost his son, man.

I see now that you meant while on probation, which is still a shock to me. I was drunker than hell for most of the time I was on probation and no one seemed to care.

Not trying to say this guy is Father of the Year, but this comment is just dumb.  Kids are inherently stupid and will definitely try things that they know are dangerous. In my day it was huffing aerosol, playing the 'passout game', skateboarding, and yes, even some questionable drugs.  Calling the kid stupid is redundant... he's a kid.  Calling the father a failure is a little harsh.  He just lost his son, man.


Just because you spent your teen years being stupid doesn't mean everyone else did.

Well that and you can't blame everything a kid does on the parents. I have seen many kids with great parents do really idiotic shiat, get pregnant as teenagers, fall in addiction, etc.

Some kids are good at hiding their outside sphere at home and show zero signs of any problems. I'm nowhere near being a parent, but I know damn sure that if at a certain age I was able to distinguish right from wrong and any fark up is on me now. My parents did their job already.

Some of these THC analogues like K2 are a lot more aggressive antagonists while having none of the sedating chemicals of natural marijuana. It is playing biochemical Russian roulette.

I was given prescription cesamet, also known as Nabilone. Synthetic THC. Worst stuff I ever took. Caused burning nerves, sensory overload, crashing migraines.

Always ALWAYS go for the natural herb over a synthetic one. You never know what's in that crap.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but honestly you don't really know what's in it unless you grow it yourself.  Maybe you can tell Indica from Sativa or even the various strains and hybrids thereof by looking at a mature plant, but I'd wager very few people can tell by looking at the end product alone.  Further, who's to say that unscrupulous dealers aren't augmenting their stuff with this synthetic crap?

Of course, ALL that uncertainty goes away if it's legalized, taxed and properly regulated.

midwestatheist: mike_d85: 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.

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

How does it work?  You're diluting with the water, but the Cystex adds coloration back to your piss?  I'm pretty sure most piss tests look for other chemical markers to ensure it's not diluted urine, such as creatine levels.

Cystex does not discolour your urine as original AZO will, that stuff will make your piss orange...AZO cranberry is also a good friend...I generally would take about 2 pills every half hour starting 2 hours before my appointment while drinking plenty of water...sure, will make you feel a little weezy but I was 19 and stupid and wanted to get high.

K2 is sometimes how it's branded, but K2/Spice is often used as a catch-all phrase for "legal" or as of yet unclassified cannabinoids, generally produced in China and India, which are added to random smokable herbs and sold in many gas stations and head shops around the country.  I've never touched the stuff myself, but from what I understand it can be a real crap shoot.  Never know how much of it,what exactly it is, or how evenly it's distributed throughout the "herbs" they put it on.

I'm going with, the whole drug testing industry is one big scam. The people that watch you pee in a cup, the lab that does the analysis, they don't care as long as they get paid. No one appears to do any sort of outside audit either. Who would be surprised if at some labs most of the samples went right in hazmat bucket and the result determined by the magic eight ball.

Okay so the fake weed I see at gas stations. How the hell do kids these days keep track of all the different drugs out there? Especially when they're frying their brains on gas station chemicals. What happened to picking up an eight ball for the weekend?

I'll admit I can't tell one strain from the next by looks. But, damn, nobody is "cutting" their weed with K2 and other crap. I guess it's probably happened on a schoolyard somewhere, but no pothead worth his patchouli would be fooled by it. In addition to the different appearance, it's probably way more expensive than regular weed (once you have a connection/crop).

Woah, dude.  Wrong one.  I was referring to the one in the article that said their kid kept doing k2 even after seeing the seminar of the father mentioned in the headline.  that kid is still alive (at the time of writing, at least), but according to the parents, that kid was unimpressed and stated he would still do k2 despite the dangers.   aside from locking the kid in a padded room for his own protection, he is a goner.

It could be different now, but, back in my day...all they did was basically use a dipping stick as a prelim test, if one cleared that, it was never sent to a lab and WE LIKED IT.

Was more curious than anything, I've stopped smoking a few months ago.  If I was however, I would be very skeptical about using advice from anyone online, especially when they were unable to answer why it worked.  Or as you pointed out, that it failed him in the 90s.
