(Des Moines Register)   In 2013, three Iowans were killed by synthetic marijuana; just imagine what would happen if regular marijuana were legal in the state, right? RIGHT?   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 56

Semper IvXx: nekom: Witty Comment:
Chronic that's been going around is that way because of selective breeding and genetic improvements, and is most likely grown very close to where it was bought. Mexican brick weed is just that.. compressed brick weed, grown by Mexican cartels in Mexico. Usually will have mold, bugs, rocks, bits of plastic, etc in it because they don't care about anything aside from the money.

Crushed seeds have always been the tell to me that it's brick.  But let's say someone picked the seeds out and sprayed it down with synthetic crap.  Who would know?  Just because marijuana is relatively harmless doesn't mean those selling it aren't potentially dicks.  I think it's becoming a valid concern.  Of course, one can always take matters into their own hands entirely and eliminate any guesswork.

There is no chance anyone would confuse brick weed sprayed with chemicals for decent marijuana. Even if you take the seeds out. The look, smell, taste of it are completely different.

Could people be spraying decent buds with chemicals? Sure, people could be spraying your veggies in the grocery store with weird chemicals, too. But there's very little (read 0) chance people are spraying ditch weed with synthetics and passing it off as high quality cannabis.


Yep. Just wouldn't be sensible from a business standpoint. Regardless of what it is sprayed with, few people will want to pay a premium for what appears to be shiatty weed. Even high quality would suffer the same problems. "Dude this Kush is enhanced for your pleasure. Only $15 more per gram!" Yeah, no thanks, buddy. Aside from the rare random oddball, I just don't see this happening.

Stoker: Synthetic marijuana is all about who is collecting the money. Legalize it, and the "who" will be right there to make cash from it.
But they wont stop making the synthetic, because it's already a product they are selling.


I'm in CO, and wouldn't dream of buying random bags from some shady asshole because there's no need anymore. I'll buy from the goofy guy in dreadlocks that finally found a paying job being an expert at what he really loves, and is dealing out of the back entrance of an existing medical dispensary, many of whom grow their own. Mr. comes-to-work-stoned can tell me the different effects of all the jars sitting on the counter there, unlike the synthetic mystery box. Unless the synthetics drop to WAY cheaper than the real thing, legal smoking really push them out of the market.

/last week's legal purchase was the first I've had in 20 years, was an interesting ordeal
//never seen a happier security guard, pretty sure even he was coming to work high

Silly humans, don't know the big difference between partial and full agonists.

Look at them. Laugh at them.

How dare you say that about James Kirk's future birthplace.

Han Solo was the better captain!
Come on, Hans didn't have a crew of 700 to 1500 following him.

Is that Nu Trek? The standard crew compliment of a Constitution class starship (at least in the original "Prime" timeline) was about 430.

Don't forget Solo also has Chewbacca, he's got be worth at least a platoon or redshirts.

I could see the synthetic being outlawed once mj is legal across the board.

Big business AND health reasons.
