DEA Bypasses Congress to Ban Synthetic Cannabis (K2) Using "Emergency Powers"!

The DEA has just created new law for the entire United States.

No judge has ruled.
No constituent has voted.
No congressman has voted.
No president has been given the opportunity to veto.

We had a laboratory of democracies regarding K2.
Some states, cities, and counties decided to ban it and some did not.

The government once again decided it could not allow people to chose what they decide is a wrong choice.

So they tweak the molecule just a bit and viola'

LEGAL!

The Liberty a society retains is inversely proportional to the number of Lawyers in the Government.

And then....

They will just ban that right? I mean I don't think they can only do it once right?

The war on drugs, the spear tip of intrusion.

Warrant: Maybe there's a bong on the table with fake marijuana.
Front page: "Raid turns up fake marijuana, maybe"
Oops, sorry ... we just thought that maybe this was fake marijuana although you claim it is parsely and will be confiscated with other periphenalia like computers, files your automobile and toilet tissue. The home owner may be held and if convicted will recieve a 14 year sentence in prison. (just maybe)
Anyway, we have this warrant and we want to ...
and we have reason to believe ...
and four days later, buried in the obituary section:
Last page
"substance found was parsley after extensive and time consuming tests." No charges were brought.
Have a nice day!

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

It is probably the CIA. They

It is probably the CIA. They do not want a synthetic cutting into their profits. Duh. This "regulation is as unconstitutional as illegalizing pot is.

Good Point.

The CIA should be abolished in my opinion.

I think you are right

yep.

Who in the world want Synthetic Cannabis ?

Maybe it shouldn't be banned...but it shouldn't be defended either. The man who synthethised Cannabis also agrees...IT DIDN'T WORK as first thought !!!

Whatever we do...we MUST NOT allow big pharma to rob from us the cannabis plant and also hemp. This is a very very unique plant ... and it's relation to mankind is just as unique. Like NO other ... period.

Discover Costa Rica

This has nothing to do with synthethic cannabis

We work so very hard for years at the Daily paul to get just
one or two reps out of 535 can vote how we like on
Important issues.

The DEA makes laws as it pleases to take effect
immediately.

Fuck that!

Dr. Melamede, Associate Professor and Biology Chairman, Biology Department, University of Colorado, explains how the Endocannabinoid System functions as a "Global Homeostatic Regulator", balancing several organ systems. He theorizes that, "Free Radicals are the Friction of Life. Endocannabinoids are the Oil of Life."

Bump

Because this is important.
