    Nice. Outlaw a bunch of harmless plants and people gravitate towards chemicals that make you eat a man's face. War on Drugs FTW.

    I just wish Krokodil would catch on in this country. Weed out (no pun intended) the riff raff.

    They'll ban it, then the makers will alter the chemical formula slightly and slap a new name on it and it'll be legal again.

    I know this because I watch Drugs Inc.

    Yeah, what they are banning is an old formulation of it.

    It got the name from the sham way they sold it.

    You can't sell powder with the tagline "snort this and it will fuck you up". So you put it out as "bath salts". That way when you are "surprised" with the news that people are misusing your product to get high you can feign surprise and outrage at the reckless misuse.

    The same goes for those glass tubes they sell at gas stations with the roses inside. Instant crack pipe with plausible deniability.

    Louisiana banned the stuff back around 2010. Mother-in-law works at a mental hospital. They saw a tripling of patients within a month or two of it hitting the streets. Some people have a mild reaction and get stoned out their mind. But when you have a bad reaction... you have a BAD reaction.

    They just don't learn in Washington. Those old fucks have their heads shoved so far up their own assholes that they could lick the back of their own tongues.

    Just like with real weed, this will only open up underground markets and will lead to people who aren't doing any harm to anyone but themselves being thrown in jail and having their lives ruined. All that just because some old, out-of-touch bastards can't accept that drugs aren't Satan's spawn.
