K2 Incense Sweeps the Globe
K2 incense is sweeping the globe and it could be your neighborhood right now. The K2 herb is typically sold as a potpourri so it can be burned as incense. In countries, states and municipalities that have ban the product, New K2 variations are being introduced to circumvent the new laws. These new products include original potpourri blends, capsules, liquids and powders. What's a government official to do?
History has shown that governments outlawing these types of products will do nothing more than take good citizens and turn them into criminals. Government has much more success regulating these types of products as a means to exert more control over distribution and who can possess these types of products. The irony is, after hundreds of years of government trying to ban something in demand, they still have failed to realize it's much easier to control products like alcohol than simply make them illegal. Remember just how successful prohibition was?
So how can you identify if K2 is in your home? If K2 incense is in a solid form, it may look like ordinary incense potpourri that you can buy anywhere, so identifying it can be a pretty difficult prospect for both parents and law enforcement officials. Where the products are legal, what's a law enforcement official to do? Arresting someone for possession of something legal just sets the city, county or state up for a lawsuit paid for courtesy of the local tax payers.
New popular blends of the K2 incense product line continue to confound law enforcement and parents alike. A new product called K2 Amazonian, is offered as a liquid extract.Use of the product is not explained but does seem apparent. Another K2 incense product is called K2 Thai and is sold in capsule form. Again, use of the product is not explained, but does seem to be quite apparent. Another product, K2 Sky is a new form of incense developed to circumvent law enforcement efforts. All of these products have been described as "Legal Everywhere".
No matter what form the K2 incense product is sold in, its use is the same. K2 incense is appears clear to be a product that is intended to be consumed so that the chemicals and ingredients found in the herbal based formulations can be released. Once consumed, they can cause a high, or altered state of consciousness. And, this can cause all sorts of interesting things to happen.
- Users of these products may experience a relaxed, euphoric feeling. One user describes the experience as " it's as though all your cares and worries are melting away, and all is right with the world".
- Users of the K2 incense products may notice that their senses seem sharper. One user described his experience as "I see colors and textures in a whole new way... I pay closer attention to them than I ever have before ...they're just cool".
- Users of some of K2 incense products may experience hallucinatory effects.
By now it's clear that continued creation of new laws to ban these types of herbal products just doesn't work and costs tax payers millions and by some estimates, billions of dollars. It's time for our legislature to sit down and create regulations that control how these products are produced, distributed and to whom they can be sold. Lets get them into licensed retailers with appropriate restrictions and out from the shadows where anyone can manufacture, buy and sell these types of products. Lets get real ingredient disclosures and real control over how these types of products are manufactured. Products like K2 incense are not the end of the world, they are simply meeting a continued demand that has been denied by out-dated and over-thought laws that continue to turn good citizens into criminals. Where is the common sense in this?
