This is the best stuff ever you have to try it! This is what some kids would say to one another. They are talking about this drug named K2. It is becoming a trend in most teenagers. Teenagers are being admitted to the hospital more often now. They have found something that is legal and can buy around there home town or over the internet. Parents have never heard of this stuff before. It is scary to think that you cannot even tell if a child is taking K2 because there is no drug test to tell you. I think that K2 is worse than the real marijuana. There are symptoms that do come along with taking this drug as well as long term symptoms.
Some people may feel that K2 is not as bad as marijuana. But here are the facts on marijuana. The most illegal drug in America is pot. Not always and not in everyone will pot effect people. When taken pot can trigger a mild euphoria and increased sensitivity to body sensations. Some people experience perceptual distortions and they are usually pleasant. The effects of pot usually climax within an hour or two and then tend to fade all at once in three to four hours. Pot isn’t a single molecule that is a drug like alcohol or cocaine. There is a mixture of about 400 different chemical elements. There are about 85 cannabinoids that are unique to pot. The main cannabinoid is THC that is the main chemical in marijuana that triggers the drugs actions and effects on the body. (A) Some people who smoke their brains have more receptors to the THC than other people and that will affect the experience the users will have with THC to get the high. (b) THC is the chemical that is like a bomb when it goes off but it makes you feel good, it breaks up into about 80 separate byproducts before it leaves the body and that can take awhile for it to exit the system. THC likes to take its time in the brain. It sticks around and stays in fatty tissues for about three to five days sometimes more than that depending if you are a heavy user. Pot can make your heart beat faster but it will only last about a minute or so. (A) In constant users studies have shown that they can have effects on learning and memory that can last weeks. There have been studies that show that pot users can have anxiety and depression. (B) These are just some of the arguments that marijuana is worse.
In a lab at Clemson University in 1995 where K2 was produced by a professor John Huffman and a group of students working under him were trying to find out how the receptors in your brain would react to latching onto the drug substances. In 1998 manufactures took Huffman’s idea and started to sell it on the market. (5) They are selling it on the market as incense. They do this to prevent from having to stick to policies so it is not called a medicine or smoke able merchandise. Synthetic marijuana is called JWH 018, a compound that stimulates the receptors in the brain the same way smoking marijuana is activated. K2 is...
