Fearless Readers, we have come to the end of an era of sorts, a very short era – the era of legal THC. We missed our chance to get in on the legal LSD up until 1967 and this gave us a chance to try new drugs and see what we could see with the aid of them. Now, the shelves are empty and we still have seen no legal notice of a final rule in the Federal Register. The media won, again.
There will be more fake marijuana products coming down the line. They are already available in some places. It is sort of like when the US made amphetamine use illegal and spawned the multi-million-untaxed-dollars-a-year ‘meth’ market. Smith Kline and French could have made a mint with their Dexedrine Spansules or the good old Bi-Phetamine 20s (the original ‘black beauties’) and taxes would have been paid on every purchase, at one level or other, and they could even have been regulated. Now, every bucktoothed hillbilly from here to Sheboygan and beyond is making ‘fake’ speed in bathtubs, sinks and even in moving vehicles. No taxes get paid on this stuff and it is a thousand times more dangerous than the real thing, which is given to students in grade school for treatment of ADHD.
Recently, we took some Roxanol brand morphine and noticed that the pills are banana flavored. This makes them a nice match for the grape flavored dexedrine tablets, called Adderall, which is what the kids in school get. What a lovely, fruity combination! What spells ‘gateway’ better than candy-covered, mind-altering drugs?
Not anybody can sell these confectionary compounds. It costs a lot of money to make grape flavored speed; only big corporations who can pay off the officials we elect are allowed to sell stuff like that. Imagine the fuss if a parent were to suggest the inherent danger in coating powerful chemicals with Pandora’s powder of sweet, sweet, sugary goodness. Imagine the outrage over all those young lives lost to swallowing sweets. It would be even worse than our upcoming diabetes epidemic, scheduled tentatively for 2020…but this ain’t pot so that will never happen. Just one of life’s little ironies.
Gentle Readers, you may have any opinion you wish as regards these substances. If you are for them or against them, you can find plenty of support online in chatrooms full of people who share your views. One funny thing about the chatrooms, websites, organizations and other entities that concern themselves with such subjects – there really is no correct answer or proper view. There is always a question-mark hanging over all participants and nobody logs off with a real, concrete answer…more often, a feeling of anxiety lingers.
Many find this lack of answers to be quite frustrating. Most frustrated are the majority of us, who are lied to, manipulated, bought, sold and shoveled shit to, by the media. Less frustrated are the so-called power brokers who create and develope the standards by which we are ruled. Ruled. That is the status of the K2 law…pre-rule. The rule never made it to print in the Federal Register so it is technically still legal, if you do your own homework and use documents provided by the government. Ask anybody and they will tell you it is illegal, however, because they saw it on the news or on the web. If it is on one of those places, it has to be true…no?
You can’t fool all of the people all of the time…how many times have we heard that? It doesn’t matter, just so long as you fool most of them. As long as the majority is confused, people foolish enough to waste time spewing the honest truth can say all they want; they have been diffused. They can tell the truth all they want and the bad guys will still fuck us all over. People do have memories, though. Honesty always prevails, eventually, but much suffering has occurred throughout history while waiting for honesty to prevail. It takes time.
We have reached a tipping point, in many ways. The world’s foremost scientists say we have passed the tipping point, in terms of saving the planet from we humans. Whales are getting sunburns because the ozone is so thin, which is documented fact, while our leaders tell us they still have no concrete evidence that global warming exists. This is why we should not follow leaders.
We feel bad for those Dear Readers who have children that will have to face the rapidly deteriorating quality of life in the Western World. The Eastern World will probably just be getting the final touches of their infrastructures in place when the big shoe finally falls. You can develop India and Bangla Desh all you want but they will still be underwater, with most of Florida, if ocean levels rise two more inches. It is just a matter of so much more melted snow and the polar bears are running out of room already.
Then there will be mass migrations to the USA and there will be even less to go around. American Dream – yes, that is what it is. There is no future here unless things take a drastic and dramatic turn. As complacent as society has become, all the drama has moved to Congress, a place where level heads lose to cheap dramatics.
So, with so many things sucking so badly, we close the folder on the K2 Khronikles in order to focus on other, more pertinent issues. We will report any new laws or findings or anecdotal information we come across, as regards K2, Spice, Mr. NiceGuy, Black Mambo and the others, of course. The subject has not fallen completely off our radar.
We shall return and we shall still be Celebrating 50 Years of Substance Abuse but we will take the forum in a slightly different direction, as you, Gentle Friends and Fiendish Foes, will see.
