    When I was in High School, we had some kids who snorted Fab to get high, and perhaps to make me laugh when I heard about it. I’m wondering if legalization would do much about that, simply because I assume there would be age restrictions. Would teems get adults to buy them pot? Or would snorting laudry soap still be cheaper and easier to get?Report

      Given that teens nowadays commonly get adults to buy them alcohol, I’m sure some of the same would happen. But having to go through one’s parents — for lack of unscrupulous black market dealers — would likely make it harder, not easier, for kids to get these substances.Report

    Dallas just banned the marijuana alternative K2, which was singled out merely because of publicity. Now the various alternatives which are almost exactly like K2 are simply selling better.Report

    Exactly kids will always find a way to get high regardless of law there just simply is nothing else for us to do movies are to expensive anymore and even parks close so early now that teens have to find some way to spend their time now this stuff k2 and these bath salts are really all we have cause they are legal but why if there side e.ffects greatly outnumber those of marijuana. Europe banned these marijuana alternative s but yet marijuana is still legal why because its a natural herd and it even has some medical purposes. I think if they are selling the alternates then why not legalize the real stuff it healthier for you and one of the side effects aren’t heartattacks.Report

    Hey, I agree.. Here in Florida.. the Sheriff here has “asked” the shop-owners not to sell the BathSalts.. I think it’s a shame.. I mean, why not let the ignorant people who think they are “invincible” test their theories? I do agree with you in regards to making these products legal. It would boost the economy.. and they’d probably tax the heck out of it as well.. I mean.. Forgive my ignorance but how is Alcoholic beverages still legal when it’s to blame in over 50% of all traffic accidents..?

    Sorry if I’m rambling.. lolReport
