Mind Melt Legal High

Obviously, there are health issues to consider, and to be fair, most of the legal highs targeted so far seem designed to mimic the effects of known illicit narcotics, but advances in science and the complexity of the brain will only serve to make this area incredibly problematic as we move forward. The packaging is usually garish; It is hard to believe that such blatant products can be dangerous. One could imagine schoolchildren replacing them in the playground. This, combined with their strangely legal (or not yet illegal) status, can lull the curious into a false sense of security. “It makes more sense to legalize other drugs [currently illegal] because that way you can monitor what`s in them and have control over [your] safety and purity. Other legal natural plants, such as Yopo, Jimson Weed, and Salvia divinorum, have seen unexpected and, frankly, unwanted spikes in popularity over the past decade. Plants that can simply be picked in their natural form and then smoked or eaten to create psychotropic effects may seem like a gift from the gods. But in many cases, these drugs are only fun for very advanced users. Otherwise, they are intended exclusively for vision quests and sweat lodges. It is legal for Planet Bong to sell the “highs” as they include the “not for human use” clause as the products are not tested for human consumption. Andy King, a second-year philosophy student, suggested that legal highs are not a problem for students.

On the other hand, the risks are obvious. Phrases like K2 and Spice have their fans, but there are also people who have become too high on K2 and Spice and it went wrong. According to television reports that American moms and dads watch before bed, people who take synthetic turf sometimes blow their brains out or go into cardiac arrest and die. For example, the burst, also known as ethylphenidate, triggered outbursts of aggressive and psychotic behavior among users. It is also injected, which carries the risk of hepatitis C or HIV infection or necrotizing fasciitis (more sensationally known as carnivorous syndrome). Burst, and some of his equally unpleasant relationships, have recently been temporarily banned. What you`d think was a good thing if it weren`t for all the buzzing chemistry sets that almost certainly produce slightly modified and therefore not illegal substitutes. In the United States, the term “legal high” is reminiscent of products that even high school students now know they are not allowed to smoke. They come in summary packages labeled “Not for human consumption.” They are marketed as incense or known as bath salts. In the UK, the term is more often reminiscent of pills designed to mimic ecstasy.

With tabloid coverage of the pond this week saying that legal highs “will kill more people than heroin in two years` time,” the British version of the legal hysteria is a bit more intense. Matt Ford, a 17-year-old from Kent, consumed a “legal high”, Exodus Damnation, delivered to a British Skunkworks store in Canterbury. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), legal highs killed 52 people in 2012. This is all quite depressing. If a permanent ban is imposed, Burst and its consequences will have disappeared from our minds because we will be dealing with a new alternative. Literally hours after the temporary ban, we were told to keep an eye out for the use of AMP, an alternative legal high – ironically known as mind fusion. But these things would have to happen if we wanted to get a logical, consistent, and effective system to control legal highs. But logic and efficiency have never really been a big part of drug policy, and since raids are already taking place, it looks like they will be for some time to come. Researchers who analyzed the effect of the drug called “benzo fury” on the brains of rats found that it had effects similar to some illicit drugs, such as amphetamines or cocaine, which can cause hallucinations and are also addictive. However, other neurotransmitters and hormones, such as oxytocin and serotonin, can also produce chemical pleasure, and there is growing evidence that others are also involved in the effects of drugs. With the same “everything is forbidden unless otherwise specified” approach of the new legal highs regulation, it would be better to ban all neurotransmitters, just in case they are used to induce psychoactive effects. And they would be, because that`s why they`re technically there.

We would end up with a population unable to use its brain. I hate to agree with this repression. This vine leaf legality that just called Smacked “incense” needs to be removed so that this crappy drug can be removed from the shelves. In the absence of creative legislation, the long-term trend in this area is discouraging for law enforcement agencies.
