FDA Bans Psychiatry’s Research Drug5,6,7,8 – K210,11 and Other “Fake Pot” Products.

 

On Thanksgiving Eve the DEA used its emergency powers to ban K2 and other “fake pot” products that mimic the effects of marijuana.  The action by the Drug Enforcement Administration makes it illegal to possess or sell the five chemicals used to make the products for at least one year. The agency and the Department of Health and Human Services will determine whether the chemicals should be permanently added to the federal list of controlled substances considered unsafe, highly abused and without medical use.15

 

K2 can create a psychotic state of mind that can get you involuntarily placed in a psychiatric hospital1 where you are either drugged or electroshocked into submission.

 

Psychiatry has been brainstorming on this subject since 19125,9 through the help of large multi-billion dollar drug manufacturers (also referred to as “Big Pharma”).  Even the modern father of synthetic grass8, drug researcher, John Huffman, warns of the dangers of fake weed.  Dr. Huffman has made it very clear that the research papers he published contain absolutely no evidence or information to show fake weed is safe to use.  He compares using fake weed as deadly as playing Russian roulette13 and not to mess with it.

 

If anything can be learned from history, we need to look at the damage caused by ecstasy, Big Pharma’s and Psychiatry’s research drug of the 70s and 80s. Many lives were ruined with the drug ecstasy which Big Pharma and Psychiatry developed in 1912 as MDMA by Merck chemist, Anton Köllish, and championed throughout the ’70s and ’80s by chemistry professor, Alexander Shulgin, and psychotherapist, Leo Zeff.

 

Merck is one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world and was established in 1891 as the United States subsidiary of the German company.  Merck made close to $10 Billion dollars last year (2009).12

 

It wasn’t until 1985 that ecstasy (MDMA) was banned by the US Drug Enforcement Agency using its emergency powers for the first time. 9

 

Now using the same emergency powers, the US DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) has placed a ban on K2 and classifies it in a category on par with heroin. The “fake pot” chemicals included in the ban are: (JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP-47, 497, and Cannabicyclohexanol).14
