When the DEA Becomes Aggressively Dangerous to Health with Synthetic Marijuana

Synthetic marijuana is a bullshit name since it sounds like an artificial way to synthesize the drug we know but it's not true and it actually generates a molecule similar to THC but not the real thing.  A much more accurate name for it is a cheap, ersatz drug which can sicken or kill you.  It came two millimeters from putting me in the hospital with every symptom of a heatstroke and that's happened to many people.

Naturally, the DEA wisdom called for making it legal since they haven't made an intelligent decision yet in the management of drugs in America so why start now.  (RT:  DEA approves synthetic marijuana for big pharma company against legalization)

Just as the Donald Trump administration's approach to medical care in America turned out to be nothing more than vandalism, so it's always been with the DEA inasmuch as it has done almost nothing about restricting heroin during its entire existence and that wasn't destructive enough so now they roll poison weed to the streets.

A synthetic marijuana product could be available for commercialization after the DEA gave a newly approved drug a schedule II classification.

On Thursday, Insys Therapeutics announced that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued an interim final rule that would put Syndros, their synthetic marijuana drug, on Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

“Insys is looking forward to bringing this new drug product to chemotherapy patients to help alleviate their nausea and vomiting and AIDS patients with anorexia associated weight loss, respectively,” Dr. Santosh Vetticaden, interim CEO, said in the announcement.

“We look forward to interacting with the FDA to finalize the labeling and subsequent launch of Syndros in the second half of 2017,” Vetticaden said.

There is active cancer in multiple individuals in this house and there's no way we would let that poison anywhere near this place.  It doesn't take Kreskin to see the DEA intention since this sets up Big Pharma to undermine the legal cultivation of marijuana to produce real THC and true byproducts of marijuana.  In typically cowardly manner, the evil state tries to outflank their opposition rather than going to a heads-up demonstration of facts.

In the interests of an arbitrary and obstructive law, the DEA will serve up artificial crap which can be actively destructive to your health ... but the DEA has never done anything else.  There's never been any more enthusiastic opponent to intelligent drug law in the United States than the DEA.

When you can grow marijuana for peanuts and harvest marijuana products that way, what possible logical reason is there for an expensive artificial process which doesn't even result in the same thing.

Ed:  it's like paying the Pentagon for protection and instead it rapes us with a five hundred billion dollar bill every year

Not exactly.  This latest approach will kill us even faster.

Some of you saw that situation with the synthetic marijuana in Knoxville and know there is zero exaggeration to this.  That stuff is dangerous and can hurt you bad.  The crew was putting ice packs on me trying to bring my temperature back down and it would have meant the E.R. if they could not do it.

Don't ever screw with synthetic marijuana.

If you're any kind of a regular then you know if there's anything the Rockhouse knows then it's marijuana and our information comes from knowledge rather than agenda-driven Washington bullshit.

Synthetic marijuana is dangerous.  Believe it.

Why you would ever try that is well beyond comprehension. Spice K2 or Bath Salts have been warned against almost as soon as they were released. They escape the law by continually changing the molecular structure faster than the FDA can outlaw them.
But you can legislate morality or intelligence so this problem with continue to exist since the price of medical marijuana is held artificially equal to street marijuana. It is a weed throw some seeds and it will grow. It should be about $2 a pack of 20. That is until the lawyer put toget her a class action lawsuit for it being a cancerous product. Then the settlement will drive the price to $10. And the lawyer will laugh again as they take 30% of the multi billion dollar payout.
The left will have a hard time going against the damage smoke does when support the product that causes it. What a conundrum.

I do believe the DEA is pushing this specifically because they know it's a hoax and they have no greater purpose than undermining any kind of legal reefer.

I have no evidence medical marijuana is as high as street reefer and the impression I get from One Who Knows is it's a whole lot cheaper.

I've heard about the danger of second-hand smoke so many times but who got lung cancer from Alex turning the living room into a London fog with that pipe night after night. He didn't even get cancer from it.

I wasn't speaking about 2nd hand smoke but of the smokers themselves.
Noone understands why some smokers get cancer and some don't. But they all get some form and degree of emphysema. And could barley walkway flight of stairs because of his lungs.
Pricwise I am just going but Google information. As Medical Marijuana runs $200 to $300 per ounce which is what you used to complain about paying .
I have no other real data to justify it. Except for Tinkerbelle and her cost for her anti seizure oil.

A friend mentioned some medical ganja from another state and it sounded remarkably low. I don't have enough evidence to back that, tho.

The research into the roots of cancer is doing incredible things. I throw those up here every so often and you're right they don't know but they appear to be getting extremely close, not so much with lung cancer specifically but with any.

Emphysema is by far the biggest problem for me. I never thought I'd last long enough for it to matter and I probably wouldn't with another ten years of computers.

If Medical Marijuana at $200-300 is remarkably low then the price of street Marijuana must be be ridiculous.

The friend wasn't saying that but much less. That may play out at a larger quantity to $200-$300 an ounce. Not enough information as yet.
