    DEA outlaws chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana

    The DEA has taken emergency action to outlaw chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana, meaning it will be illegal to possess or sell them in the U.S. for at least one year, until further action is taken.

    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 use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    They take these chemicals because idiots made a safe chemical illegal deades ago. Want to ban dangerous chemicals? How about starting with alcohol, which is orders of magnitude more dangerous than marijuana....Oops, already tried that, and it didn't work.

    The way I see it, if somebody is doing drugs or alcohol, and is not hurting or violating the rights of others, it is none of the government's damn business. But don't tell that to the government, who wants to be the great nanny that protects us all from ourselves.

    **** the government. It no longer represents "We the People", so **** them.

    All you need is some valerian root, rose hips and maybe some melatonin - crush, mix, drink . . . relax.

    If enough people do that, then those things will be outlawed too. The government is against mind expansion or cheap, natural substances that challenge the pharmaceutical industry.

    Besides, taking valerian root consecutively for more than 2 weeks is damaging to the liver.

    How many unknown chemical agents do you surmise are present in cannabis? How many carcinogens? If anything, I would suspect that this "synthetic marijuana" is the safer and healthier option. It's the fact that the government is outlawing this safer and healthier option that is baffling to me; how can they claim to have a legitimate interest in doing so? These policies are bureaucratic madness.

    And so smoking and drinking and everything else isn't damaging

    The whole thing is stupid - the government just wants to ruin everyone's fun

    Well, they are... but I wasn't drawing a comparison so that's a tad bit of a strawman you've got there.

    Toxic is toxic. Saying cannabis and alcohol are toxic doesn't mean valerian isn't.

    They just don't want people having epiphany-like awakenings in their minds to the reality of how pathetic authority is.

    Oops too late.

    I never said it wasn't - yet, at the same time, many other substances aren't being checked at all: like the various mixed ingredients of energy drinks or weight-loss supplements.

    Yeah I noticed that. We get quite a few patients in my clinic who have adrenal deficiencies because they drink a few of those a day.

    I find it disturbing that there are drinks you can buy in stores that have "recommended dose" written on them. How is that legal?

    Re: DEA outlaws chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana

    I kid you not - I nearly killed myself with one of those the other week.

    I study like crazy - I had a porfolio due, had worked on it for weeks before it was due, but still hadn't finished it. I ended up (rather unwantedly) staying up all night ot finish the stupid thing.
    The next day - to make it through my long and very tiring World Civ class - I drank 1/2 of a rockstar energy drink.

    I drank part of it 30 minutes before class started.
    20 minute after drinking it I was buzzing, nearly hyperventilating while laughing, and was crying all at the same time.

    I couldn't stop laughing and crying - and I had to head to the bathroom to dump the drink out and laugh/sob into the sink. . . it was bizarre. I heart palpitations and everything.

    20 minutes later - in class - and was falling asleep while I was writing notes. My notes are illegible and I dont' even remember being there most of that 1:30
