Due to current marijuana laws in Texas (possession of two ounces or less could land you 180 days in jail and $2,000 in fines, and possession of a gram or less of hash or any concentrate is a felony charge that can land you up to 2 years in jail and $10,000 in fines), many are turning to legal synthetic smokeable drugs.
These untested synthetic drugs, often mislabeled as "synthetic marijuana," are to blame for an increase in calls for physically violent attacks and unconcious individuals. Often referred to as "spice" or "K2", the effects of these legal drugs sound more like a night out drinking whiskey and tequila straight from the bottle rather than any marijuana experience I've ever had.
The fact that the synthetic drugs are even associated with marijuana adds to the negative stereotype Texas lawmakers still hold, despite most of the country moving toward legalization. So smarten up, Texas! Legalize marijuana, ban this unnatural crap, and let's worry about more important things, like where is the best latenight munchie spot.
