  1. When I stopped taking all the drugs that the doctors at the VA prescribed for me I lost 80 pounds in 3 months . I the year since I’ve lost an additional 40 pounds now I weigh 204 down from 325 . My life and health are now better since I began treating myself with cannabis . Cholesterol and sugar levels are normal . My new doctor asked just yesterday what I did to make such dramatic changes in my health but I couldn’t tell him I was smoking cannabis .. He said what ever I’m doing to keep it up .

    Synthetic Marijuana Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of Teen Who Died

    September 24, 2013 — The Denver Post reports that a synthetic marijuana lawsuit has been filed by the mother of Nicholas Colbert, a 19 year-old who died in his home on September 21, 2011 after smoking the drug, also known as “Spice.”

    The lawsuit was filed against Family Market, LLC, the owner of the Kwik Stop at 1125 South Chelton Road in Colorado Springs, where Colbert allegedly purchased synthetic marijuana in a bottle labeled “Mr. Smiley.”

    Lawyers for Colbert’s family allege that the product contained chemicals banned by Colorado and federal law, but the label did not disclose its ingredients or side effects. They allege that Kwik Stop sold the drug to Colbert for months after it was banned in Colorado.

    Since late August, at least 3 deaths and 75 hospitalizations in Colorado have been linked to synthetic marijuana. Officials are unsure whether it was a “bad batch” or a newer, more dangerous form of the drug. In December 2012, a teenager named Emily Bauer smoked the drug and suffered a series of strokes that left her permanently disabled.

    In March 2011, the DEA added synthetic cannabinoids to Schedule I. On April 12, 2013, the DEA expanded the list to control three new synthetic cannabinoid agonist receptors. All branches of the military have banned synthetic marijuana. Individual state laws vary widely, but most have added it to their list of controlled substances.

    Spice is a product that is sold as a legal herb-based alternative to marijuana. Since it hit the market in about 2006, numerous organizations have tested ingredients and identified dozens of chemicals that work by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the brain.

    Although the substance looks like dried herbs or sand, it contains dangerous psychoactive chemicals that are not listed on the label. Side effects include seizures, hallucinations, convulsions, stokes, and profound psychological effects that last for weeks or months.


    • Why aren’t they going after Pfizer ? Pfizer created this synthetic marijuana drug . They didn’t release it here in the US but took it to Europe . Now it’s made it’s way back home .
      So why isn’t anyone going after Pfizer could it be because they make huge political campaign contributions .


  3. From a correspondent in Florida: These are big here in town now. One popular brand is Kratom, which comes in powder and liquid forms. It must be quite inexpensive because the homeless people use it. Their discarded packets are left near their bundle stashes. Those products are made by amateurs with no quality control whatsoever. Thus the distribution of the (perfectly legal) ingredients is imperfect; sometimes the user gets no effect at all, and sometimes a huge rush all at once that proves fatal or permanently disabling.
    There are so many products that the feds can’t keep track of all of them all the time. One ingredient is banned, another formulation quickly takes its place. The vendors exhort the user community to keep the existence of the product a secret, so as to avoid publicity and allow the cool people to continue their enjoyment of the drug, unimpeded.
