Quit Calling K-2 ‘Synthetic Marijuana’: Cannabis is Safer!

Quit Calling K-2 ‘Synthetic Marijuana’: Cannabis is Safer!

By Denton Ramsey, NORML of Waco Inc. Director of Volunteers

If there’s one thing driving me crazier than this war against a plant, it’s the nonsense of people tying in the latest K-2 smoking craze to cannabis.

First and foremost, K-2 IS NOTHING LIKE CANNABIS.

Nothing.

You might as well compare K-2 to chemically-laced lettuce.

Wake the fark up!

However, our local Associated Press and other media outlets constantly refer to the latest legal smoking craze as “synthetic marijuana.”

Really?

So does that make 5-Hour Energy “synthetic speed?”

Is over-the-counter cough syrup now “synthetic LSD?”

Give me a break.

It would make more sense to call O’Doul’s Amber a “synthetic beer” regardless of the beverage being non-alcoholic.

K-2 is not cannabis.

It’s not weed.

It’s not marijuana.

In fact, it’s not even the same species.

K-2 is a government-grown plant sprayed with chemicals that users turn to in order to pass drug screens or get away with doing something “legal.”

Plain and simple: this K-2 craze, ladies and gentlemen, is a product of prohibition.

Legalize cannabis, and this bull shiz with K-2 goes away.

And if your argument is doing this “for the kids,” I have a question for you: would you rather have your sons and daughters smoking something legal in K-2 “incense,” or smoking something safer in cannabis?

Look at the facts and you’ll also soon realize that cannabis is not only a true medicine that has been used for centuries, but it’s also a safer alternative.

Cannabis is safer than alcohol.

Safer than prescription pills.

Even safer than water.

Quit labeling K-2 as “synthetic cannabis” and call it what it really is: a new and legal drug people are using as a result of this prohibition of a plant.
