Do you know what k2 is?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Aka spice and many other names I'm sure. Do you know what it is?

I didn't know til a few minutes ago. Man I've been disconnected. I have to keep up better.

I'll update what it is exactly in a bit.

ETA: ok we have a few replies so here we go. It's a drug. Supposedly a synthetic marijuana (but from my understanding not much like weed really) and it's much stronger, undetectable in drug tests (don't quote me there), and very dangerous. Google it and know it. I'm a believer in knowing what's out there so we're not blind sided by this stuff with our kids. Go do some research now that you know it exists. I think it started coming out like early 2000s.

But how many teens don't care? They think it's a cheap and easy way to get high. Especially if their parents are drug testing them regularly. Doesn't seem worth it to me. But at 16 or 17 I may have tried it without really knowing anything about it.

Yrs. It made news here about a year ago and is now illegal. I didn't know what it was prior to that though.

When it first came out, everyone believed it was sooo safe. Dh and I even were smoking it. Until the first kid died, then I quit after I heard how they died - quit breathing in their sleep.  The last time I smoked it, I freaked out and had told Dh, "What if I forget to breathe???  I can't take care of DD like this!"  He calmed me, got me to sleep promising he'd take care of her.  After that first kid died and we heard how, we quit.

Exactly what I've found out. I'd never smoke it. I'd smoke weed first. I used to smoke weed a lot. I don't now because of my kids and my job. But I'm not desperate to get high either.

But this kid on TV was saying its cheaper, stronger, and doesn't show up when his mom drug tests him so he saw it as a win win. He say there and watched his cousin have a seizure and end up in the hospital. Still smoking it. So stupid.

Quoting heavenlybliss19:

K2 is old news... don't smoke it unless you're up for dyin.  In most places, it's illegal.  None of our smoke shops even carry it anymore by any name.
