In the last month, Dr. Anthony Scalzo, a professor of toxicology at Saint Louis University, has seen nearly 30 cases of teenagers experiencing these adverse effects after smoking the fake weed, a legal substance that reportedly offers a marijuana-like high.

The article says in small doses it is like marajuana but in high doses the other symptoms arise.

How long before they ban this.

People will do anything to get high. A friend of mine in college was a chem major and had the ability to order all kinds of bizarre things in order to complete his thesis. He ordered some Ephedra sinica...which he then rolled into joins with some marijuana that was possibly laced with PCP.

That was pretty much the last time I got high. All I remember was having a tea party with Jesus, Elvis, Buddha, and Joni Mitchell and almost getting into a fist fight with what later turned out to be a parking meter.

This is all because weed is too difficult to find?

Not long. Then somebody will find something even worse that's legal. The herd will keep coming up with ways to thin itself.

I am thinking weed is still not hard to find. I think this is a way to get high legally, without worrying about getting arrested.

Maybe this is what Obammy is putting in his cigarettes. That is why he has delusions that he can pass his healthcare reform.

At least parts of Missouri (ie some counties) already have.

My paper had an angry editorial about the banning in the Sunday edition : 'No proof K2 is harmful, so we'll ban it anyway, just in case'-the writer called it an egregious example of the "nanny state" mentality.

They outlaw this but for a few bucks I can buy a couple of bottles of chilled MD 20/20 and get the same results, especially the vomiting part.
