It's comical watching the powers that be try to ban yet another 
substance. Synthetic marijuana is being used because it is a legal 
alternative to the real thing. No one would use the toxic stuff if 
the state would take an honest look toward legalizing marijuana.

The real substance is tried-and-true and, while not the healthiest 
substance, it is no more unhealthy than other things humans ingest - 
alcohol, for instance.

The fakes are untested and unknown medical problems may arise 
therefore, much more dangerous to use.

Prohibition will stop nothing, only force chemists to find 
alternatives that will be on the market a few weeks after the law passes.

Let's be on the right side for once and protect our consumers from 
fakes by allowing the real thing.
