Police said the product is a mixture of herbs and spices that's sprayed with a synthetic compound similar to THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Similar, as in the substance looks like marijuana. The effects are nothing like THC. But then again, it's cop drug knowledge.

I guess people are worried about drug tests maybe?  I'm actually a bit concerned that people could start lacing ditch weed with this synthetic crap and marketing it as good stuff.  I haven't seen ANY reports of that happening, but if I could think of it I'm sure some unscrupulous drug dealer could.  Real weed is about the safest way to substantially alter your consciousness out there.

When I just got out of the Army I smoked a bit of the K2 and Mr Nice Guy stuff.  It has slightly similar effects to cannabis, but only slightly similar.  It didn't seem to last very long and it tended to make me feel anxious.

The main problem now is that every time they outlaw a Spice/K2 variant, the manufacturers tweak to the formula and make a new product with an extra molecule in it.  I'd imagine that by now, all of the smokable incense products are chemical Frankensteins.

If the prohibitionists really cared about users, they would legalize cannabis, a very safe substance, and go after the synthetic market as though they were meth labs.

it'd be too expensive (Spice tends to sell for almost 3 times the price of regular weed last I checked). A dealer like that would be more likely to cut it with dried parsley or oregano from the dollar store than spend that kind of money cutting it with something more expensive. Crack and heroin dealers are known to cut their shiat with pretty much whatever's lying around on the cheap, for example.

Dosage and complete lack of information as to exactly what chemicals are in it.  The process goes like this:

1.  Some guy buys potentially unknown chemicals from an overseas supplier, the legal status of which is questionable at best
2.  Mixes whatever amount of whatever he has in with some random dried herbs
3.  Labels it as "Potpourri - NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION" with absolutely no further information
4.  Profit

No - similar, as in the chemical is a cannabinoid that is related to THC. It binds to the same chemical receptors in the brain, but it has other effects due to the differences in the rest of the molecule.

There are lots and lots of THC-related chemicals out there, and most of them have effects that are "nothing like THC," but that wasn't the original claim. You should also remember that having effects "just like THC" (but 100 times more powerful and much longer-lasting) can also be a problem.

But then again, it's drug dealer knowledge ("it's sorta like THC but they can't arrest me for selling it, so it must be okay").

The thing for me about this stuff is: Made in China.  Those people don't give a damn. Dog food that kills your dog? No problem. Milk that kills babies? They sold that too, till they finally got caught and executed.  Most recently, rotting meat for McDonalds? No problemo. Ship it, Danno.

Now,  here you have a product that is clearly labeled  Not For Human Consumption  (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)making the producer and the shop who sells the stuff lawsuit-proof.  One day the manufacturer is just a little short of one chemicals to finish the batch needed for shipment the next day. Is the manufacturer going to, A - tell the buyer he  couldn't finish the run. B- Rummage around the shed for any old stuff that is around. C- Double-check the labeling to make sure that's labeled Not For Human Consumption,and dump that drum of industrial cleaner in the mix.

But hey, it's your choice. Do you feel lucky today?

Booze is either by weight like 3.2 beer or proof, like 152 proof Everclear.

The biggest hurdle pot has with the government is now what is the strength. The medical marijuana people are trying to come up with a solution that tells the strength (and probably the price).
Until the metrics are solved, cannabis is the Frankstein, too.

This is THC:
upload.wikimedia.org

This is HU-210, a synthetic cannabinoid that was found in "Spice" a few years ago:
upload.wikimedia.org
This is CP 47,497, also found in a lot of "Spice":
upload.wikimedia.org

They are very close analogues of THC and have rather similar effects. HU-210 & CP 47,497  are now ontrolled substances in many countries.


JWH-018 is one of the most famous synthetic cannabinoids, featuring a modification of the core structure:
upload.wikimedia.org
and it's closely related to JWH-073:
upload.wikimedia.org
These compounds are commonly associated with these "herbal incense" fake marijuana products. And they're banned all over the place now.

All of the compounds are potent CB1/CB2 agonists, In contolled studies, they have very similar effects to THC. Many of the reported subjective differences attributed to the synthetics may be due more to dosing and pharmacokinetic differences (i.e., a single cannabis "bud" is a somewhat controlled dose, but nobody really knows how much of this other stuff gets sprayed on your dried oregano; these compounds are typically absorped better and metabolized differently by the body, dramatically affecting peak blood levels and drug half-lives)--it's not clear how much of the qualitative effects are simply due to these potency differences.

They're not the same as THC; but they were specifically designed to be similar to THC, but with alterations to their pharmcological properties.

But then again, this is just pharmacologit knowledge.

Good strategy if you need a rock of crack, but a reputable weed dealer probably looks nothing like you picture.  Proper weed scores take place in homes, not on the streets.  Weed is becoming more and more mainstream every day.

steklo: Big Beef Burrito: The last time I smoked this stuff things got weird. I passed out, and when I woke up, some crusty desert hobos were worshipping me and made a bible out of my insane ramblings.

Then I went blind and threw a knife a some dude's head using baby vision.

Like I said, weird.

You forgot the part where you covered yourself in mustard and BBQ sauce.

That sounds like one of the Brian Herbert books.

PreMortem: Police said the product is a mixture of herbs and spices that's sprayed with a synthetic compound similar to THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Similar, as in the substance looks like marijuana. The effects are nothing like THC. But then again, it's cop drug knowledge.


Really, they do themselves a HUGE disservice by ever comparing this poison to honest Cannabis.  Even the few cases of this stuff being sold you hear about people have real problems - if Cannabis caused problems like this, the psych wards would have been jammed decades ago!

Synthetic drugs are nothing like Cannabis, kids, and you should wait to use the real thing...cripes, cigarettes are better for you than 'Spice'.

Depends on which chemicals it has, from what I've heard.  Some are similar, others are drastically and even dangerously different.  It's a crap shoot.  Random grass clippings sprayed with ???? from China.  Yeah, I'll pass.

Then again, why not just stick with real weed? Cheaper, none of the siezures, heart pops, and debilitating strokes, and it doesn't exactly take a lot of imagination to find some decent herb, especially if you're in the city.


You know, I've never understood you people who say it's "never hard to find". I remember being dry and everyone else I knew being dry. I remember being ripped off when I was young. I remember that the people who offered me drugs were generally the LAST people I trusted. Also, I remember that after cutting my hair and moving, suddenly I had no connections and no idea of where to get them. When you look "straight" people don't tend to offer you drugs in the street.

Spice can be bought in a store. Now that I live in Washington, I can buy cannabis in a store too, but that was not the case for most of my life. Spice has been more readily available for most of that time. I never used it because I'm not that stupid, but I've known where to get it if I wanted it. It's not hard to find. Cannabis is hard to find, unless you run in druggy circles or are in high school.

BitwiseShift: The biggest hurdle pot has with the government is now what is the strength. The medical marijuana people are trying to come up with a solution that tells the strength (and probably the price).
Until the metrics are solved, cannabis is the Frankstein, too.


The biggest hurdle for the Gov't is MONEY and how to admit that they have been lying to us for 50 years or more.  I don't know why the latter is a problem, they lie to us every day 10 times before they have breakfast, but giving up their favorite drug, their highly addictive DRUG:  MONEY, that's going to be tough, because you know how bottom feeders are about vacuuming the crap off the bottom of the lake...

Once you become a regular at a bar, for example, ask the bartender - that's what I did last time I needed a hookup.

Took a couple of months before I was accepted enough, but after that?  Whatever I wanted up to and including Horse was being sold in this place.

No, but that's the LAST place to be looking.  I'm not saying street dealers don't exist, they do, or that they don't deal in weed at all, many do.  But buying pot from some guy in an alley is likely to get you a skimpy amount of Mexican brick weed.  I live in the boonies and I know at least 5 places within 10 minute driving distance where I could get it.  But I don't because as a professional adult I can wait until my trusted source can get me some.  The quality is good, he delivers, and I don't mind paying a price that reflects the risk involved.

BitwiseShift: CJHardin: The main problem now is that every time they outlaw a Spice/K2 variant, the manufacturers tweak to the formula and make a new product with an extra molecule in it.  I'd imagine that by now, all of the smokable incense products are chemical Frankensteins.

If the prohibitionists really cared about users, they would legalize cannabis, a very safe substance, and go after the synthetic market as though they were meth labs.

Booze is either by weight like 3.2 beer or proof, like 152 proof Everclear.

The biggest hurdle pot has with the government is now what is the strength. The medical marijuana people are trying to come up with a solution that tells the strength (and probably the price).

Well, for one, booze strength is not measured by weight but by volume, as in 3.2 percent alcohol by volume or 6.4 proof.  Everclear is also not sold in 152 proof but 190 proof or 151 proof in the bible belt (I guess Bacardi didn't budge on their proof), or 95% alcohol by volume, 75.5% ABV respectively.

As far a cannabis goes, that's already dealt with, I don't know what "hurdle" you are referencing.  Cannabis is sold by the gram and has a percentage of THC indicated.  For instance, Bubba Kush is usually around 18.5% THC and a whopping 0.27% CBD content.  It usually sells for around  $10-$15 a gram.

Cannabis is not even close to being compared to the "incense" products.  Sure there is some tweaking in the grow rooms, but it involves fertilizers, CO2, and lights, not creating new chemicals.  Cannabis is as much as a Frankenstein as heirloom tomatoes, and just as deadly.

If you want to buy drugs in any city in the world, go hang around a statue of some sort. Just hang around long enough and somebody will scope you out and eventually approach you.

I wonder what they are doing about this problem in Washington and Colorado?

$10 - $15 for a gram? maybe we need to retire to asheville!
around here we typically pay about $20 for a g.
of course, we only get a g when we are low on cash. when we can afford 1/8 or more, it starts to become MUCH cheaper per volume...as in 1/8 for $40 to $45...1/4 for $65 - $80

FullMetalPanda: Spices?

Were their eyes glowing blue?


FTFA: "Their eyes look different. They don't look like us. They look weird," said Paul St. Onge of Manchester.

They would have a lot more credibility if they had ever had any credibility to begin with.
