While synthetic marijuana is legal in many states, early this year it was officially banned in Ireland, Missouri and Kansas. K2/K3 spice can be purchased as various brands of smoke products in stores in the US, Japan, Europe and other countries. Federal authorities are enforcing new laws on shipments of cannabinoids and K2-based products.
K2/K3 spice are psychoactive chemicals first synthesized by American chemist John W Huffman (JWH) which are sprayed onto dried plant material. They mimic the effects of THC and Marijuana, and are sold legally in the united states in packets of herbal incense and potpourri. K2/K3 spice has avoided regulations by labeling their packaging as “not safe for human consumption”. It has been classified as a schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act, which entails that it has a high potential for addition with no known medical use or benefits.
