"Fake" Weed, Synthetic Marijuana, Herbal Blends....

    Have you heard of this stuff?  Have you tried it?  What do you know about it?

      Herbal ecstasy is sold like "legal ecstasy", but they don't tell it contains substances that may be harmful for health.

      I just saw the stuff at our local smoke shop.  I dunno, I don't smoke weed-any longer!-and apparently it's got lots of 'replacement' chemicals rather than the THC.
      Sounds a bit risky.

    I have heard of these drugs, or smart drugs  (why do not contain prohibited substances). Some of them are new and synthetic. For many of them we do not know the long-term effects and may therefore be potentially very harmful.
    I would be afraid of these drugs!

    This is another reason to make pot legal!  Some of these possibly dangerous concoctions would be not be offered if this were the case.

    Smoking is too dangerous especially for children. I saw many times smoking parents close by ther sleeping child. Why does nobody teach them that passive smoking is more dengerous than active one.

    I wouldn't take a risk of smoking those substances. In any case, using some stuff in order to feel euphoria or the pure joy is not the best way of relaxing or experiencing a wide range of emotions.

      I agree with you Randy, if weed were legal, we wouldn't have people trying less researched alternatives.

      Well, you are only speaking for yourself of course.  Each individual is different.  What relaxes some folks may make others uncomfortable.  Some even use self hypnosis to convince themselves they feel calmer.  But this to may be harmful to the person too.  Depends.

      Me, I like to burn one and do expert crosswords in ink!  But that is just me!
