    Re: DEA outlaws chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana

    I started smoking weed in early 80's. Stopped after I quit college and joined the Army. Started back up when I retired from the Army. To this day I still enjoy a bowl or two to relax me after a very stressful day.

    Smoking pot is no different than any other drug when used by a responsible adult. I never drive while stoned, I never use around my children or other people. If you were to meet me in person you would never guess I smoke. I am saying this because while I was in the military I was used to combat the flow of drug into the US. The whole time I was doing the job the US govt entrusted me with I always thought what a terrible waste of my abilities and taxpayers money. The "War on Drugs" has been a complete and total failure.

    Yet more stupidity stemming from this mad war on drugs. I have numerous friends who use this stuff, the ones who are to afraid to try Marijuana. I warned them that it wasn't just plant matter but unknown chemicals also mixed in. It amazes me that people would rather take the dangerous alternative just because of it's legality.
    I don't care. The government has already outlawed what I find best in life, absinthe, hookers, nudity in videogames....

    Why don't they just require a warning label so the People can make their own informed decisions about what they put into their own bodies? I swear to God some of these blokes running our country are just mouth-breathing knuckle-dragging STUPID!

These policies are bureaucratic madness.
    This is not the safe and healthier option, Nobody really knows anything about these chemicals. Nobody has ever died from Marijuana so I highly doubt synthetic Marijuana is safer.

    The one thing that is constantly overlooked is that of "Property Rights". Naturally, the State/Feds believe themselves to own each and every one of us, AND our bodies. But in truth(if you follow the Constitution), we own our own bodies and should have the Liberty to dispose of it as we wish, as long as we do not harm others in the process.

    If you like State Control, fine, enjoy all these new rules, in order to save yourself from yourself. If you believe you own your body, are an adult, and love Individual Liberty, you will be totally opposed to this 'so called' War On Drugs, which is really a War on the citizenry.

    Do you like all this Big Government? Think the TSA is doing the right thing too? Then welcome to Statism.

    Actually, I'm not really Libertarian. I'm a 19th Century Jeffersonian, Acton, Liberal. I believe passionately in Individual Liberty, of course.

    The DEA is banning K2 under the auspices of "public safety." How is forcing a segment of the population, who were using K2 legally, to go find illegal drugs helping "public safety" at all? All they are doing is making sure they have job security and stuffing the pockets of the prison industry. Putting more of our citizens in jail for victimless crimes is the LAST thing this country needs.

    I don't do illegal drugs and if I ever want to 'unwind' I'll do it legally.

    Valerian root will kick your buns even make you sick if you get too much. Catnip tea is pretty relaxing not sure if it has the same liver effects.

    Seems to me the war on pot is just a money making project, they sure are not winning.

    How can the DEA outlaw anything?

    Nixon equipped the DEA with a lot of power. I believe they can essentially schedule a hearing on a substance then rule on it, and that ruling becomes law of the land. You know the whole system is a joke when Marijuana is a schedule 1 narcotic.
