Pass a Bill to Ban "K2" Synthetic Marijuana

  • by: Citizens of Louisiana
  • recipient: We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to pass A bill aimed to stop the spread of synthetic marijuanaPetition to Pass a Bill Banning Marijuana Substitute

The Citizens of the State of Louisian are concerned for the safety of our children.



There is so much that is unknown about these and other unregulated synthetic drugs. To hear that K2 is becoming popular among high school/college students of all ages that concerns us. So many times a child will start out with minor drug usage that leads to a lifetime of addiction. My goal with this legislation is to prevent that from happening. 



K2, an unregulated mixture of dried herbs, is growing in popularity because it is legal, purported to give a high similar to marijuana and believed to be natural and therefore safe.


K2 may be a mixture of herbal and spice plant products, but it is sprayed with a potent psychotropic drug and likely contaminated with an unknown toxic substance that is causing many adverse effects. These toxic chemicals are neither natural nor safe.


What makes K2 so dangerous? Further testing is needed, the symptoms, such as fast heart beat, dangerously elevated blood pressure, pale skin and vomiting suggest that K2 is affecting the cardiovascular system of users. It also is believed to affect the central nervous system, causing severe, potentially life-threatening hallucinations and, in some cases, seizures.


While JWH 018, a synthetic man-made drug, similar to cannabis, may be responsible for the hallucinations, it is suspected that there is another unknown toxic chemical being sprayed on K2.


This product is illegal in other countries and we are happy to announce that Kansas is the first state to make it illegal.

These are just a few of the names of these Incense / Botanical Herbs: K2, Mojo, Voo Doo Magic, Spice Gold, Yucatan Fire, Demon, Serenity
