    Michigan - Legal 'Potpourri' Being Used As Drug

    Legal 'Potpourri' Being Used As Drug

    Substance Is Legally Marketed As A Potpourri

    LAKE ORION, Mich. -- Parents in Lake Orion are getting letters from their local police department warning them about a new and dangerous drug, which is completely legal.

    It is synthetic form of marijuana and is called K2.The substance is marketed as a potpourri and can be found in local stores.

    Lake Orion Police Chief Jerry Narsh said his department is taking it seriously."Trends are a dime a dozen, but this one is dangerous.

    This isn't the latest fashion. This is something that can seriously harm our youth," Narsh said.

    Narsh said K2 is also known as Spice, Genie or Fire and Ice and is 10 times more potent than marijuana.

    When inhaled, the effect is instant, intense and potentially lethal.

    "It elevates the heart rate, the blood rate. Panic attacks have been discovered in kids across the country, vomiting, hallucinations and who knows what else," Narsh said.

    Local 4 visited a party store and found bags of K2 sold for $40 as a potpourri.

    Police point out that since the substance is legal and is not a tobacco, it can be sold to someone as young as 10 years old.

    Chris Zitny is a concerned parent."The things that they have at this age.
    We didn't have it when I was young.
    It's too bad because there are too many influences on teenagers," Zitny said.The substance is currently banned in Europe but is unregulated in the U.S., where police departments are working with other organizations to convince lawmakers to have it banned.

    The police department as well as a local organization is working with lawmakers to have the substance banned in Michigan.

    The police chief will be holding a presentation of the drug at the local library on April 27th at 6:30pm. The public is welcome to attend.

    If history is any indicator, such side-effects will limit the use of this substance better than prohibition ever could. Of course, not criminalizing people who use it would deprive the authoritarian types the pleasure of jailing people they don't like.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    K2 is a herbal smoking blend made of herbs and spices sprayed with synthetic cannabinoids (notably JWH-018), which mimic the effects of cannabis. It is produced in China and Korea. It can be consumed in ways comparable to cannabis.

    It is a product similar to Spice[1] and Pandora Potpourri.[2] K2 comes in many varieties with names such as Blonde, Summit, Pink, Blue, Standard, and Citron.[3] No official studies have been conducted on its effects on humans.[4] Though its effects are not well documented, it may cause negative effects that are not noted in marijuana users, such as increased agitation and vomiting.[5]

    It is legal and readily available throughout most of the United States. Its use has sparked alarm in several states including Kansas which has banned the sale and possession of its active chemicals,[6] and the town council of St. Charles, Missouri has passed emergency legislation banning its sale.[7] The US Army has banned soldiers' use.[8]

    There are a number of substances legally available that will get you fucked up- jimson weed (Datura), which grows wild where I come from in the States and every now and then some idiot eats it and reminds everyone why not to do so; nutmeg, which if you eat enough will mess you up- prisoners are known to use it- but makes you sick as shit; coleus leaves and morning glory seeds. Actually, if you can stomach it, eating half a kilo or so of dark chocolate will supposedly give a cannabinoid high about like smoking half a joint. We should make chocolate illegal, just to be on the safe side and to fuck with the dirty hippies, who are known to crave large amounts of chocolate after indulging in their devil weed.
