Anyone heard of K2? Is it harmful to smoke? I have teenagers and was wondering if anyone knows.

  • I have teens and was curious when you asked, so I looked it up. Here's the link I found.

    From the sounds of it - it's an incense and is NOT intended to be smoked or ingested in any way, though, from reading the site, some try to use it as a substitute for pot.  Also, according to the site, there are a lot of counterfeit versions out there that are illegal and are actually part of a Federal crackdown (there's info on how to report it if you got a counterfeit product).  Also, it says that you can't buy it if you're under 18. 

    Hope this helps!

  • It's not safe to smoke. Real weed is better for you than that stuff from everything I've heard and read about it.

  • It's not safe to smoke. There's been reports of people dying because of it. I had a friend of mine smoking it, and he said it gave him a big high, and asked if I wanted to try it (no, I did not, because I didn't want to be anywhere near it) but he quit once the reports of the deaths started. It's not meant for human consumption, and definitely is dangerous.

  • its synthetic weed, which to me sounds worse than regular weed

  • Teens can walk into any gas station and buy it. There is no age limit. It is a synthetic marijuana and yes, it is HARMFUL if anyone smokes it.
