fusillade762: Is real weed that hard to get in Texas?
jst3p: Not for consumption? WTF?
SemiDiscerning: TheWhoppah: Archfeld: The results of "Intelligent Design" ??Not that weed is so hard to get in TX, it is just that possession of any of it will send you to jail forever.Hell, in Texas they might just decide to fast-track you an execution for smoking 'devil' weed.Possession of Marijuana is a "Cite and Release" offense in Texas. The officer can write you a ticket and not even take you to jail. You ain't from around here I take it?Depends upon what area of the state you happen to be in when a bust might occur. In Austin a LEO might ask for a toke, in East Texas you'd be fortunate if you weren't shot
ScaryBottles: Around the DFW you can pick up an O for like $60 on just about any corner in Deep Ellum or off Lower Greenville
lindalouwho: Doesn't anyone suspect something may be horribly wrong - like product tampering?
Somaticasual: That's 120 more than would have overdosed on you know, the regular kind...
MrHappyRotter: Well, when you make the real thing illegal, and difficult to find compared to being able to go to the local head shop and/or hopping online, then yes, you're going to end up with more of this sort of thing. There is no end to legal substances that can get you high, and as you ban one, another is already in the pipeline. But, as you continue down that path, you'll find there's less and less known about the new substance(s), and that the side effects are progressively scarier and more dangerous.And, you're stupid if you believe that people will just give up on getting high. It's not going to happen.Let's consider two scenarios. Scenario A: You smoked too much pot, start getting panicky, go to the hospital. If you fess up and admit to what you consumed, they can give you some saline, maybe give you something to calm your nerves. Everything's fine. Scenario B: You bought some herbal thing off the Internet, consumed too much, now your heart is racing and you're drifting in and out of reality. You go to the hospital. Guess what? The hospital is just guessing at how to treat you. They've never heard of this herb, can't verify that's what you actually consumed, and don't know enough about how to treat an overdose to actually effectively keep things from getting worse.Every last person who is out there fighting against legalization of marijuana or sitting around complacent/apathetic/whatever and not actively voting out the fark heads in the government who keep marijuana illegal are entirely, 100% to blame for these kinds of deaths. End of story.
TheBigJerk: straight leaf is impossible to die from.
Egalitarian: legalize real pot and then you'll have a lot less ODs.
Somaticasual: That's 120 more than would have everoverdosed on you know, the regular kind...
PreMortem: I tried synthetic mj once. It was nothing like mj. I think they just market it like that to give the impression it's a safe, mellow high, which it's not. Never again.
