Yeah. Glad to see it. There's been a few incidents I've heard of where accidents have been caused and blamed on these things.

I see it lasting for all of abut 5 minutes. Matt Bowden & Co are far more clever than we give them credit and will have some work around for the law, ie what is 'low risk'?

The issue isn't the product it is the drop kicks that are convinced they need it. If I was the government I would create a ghost company and sell poisonous legal highs, that will sort out the issue pretty quick. #GovtConspiracy

Might not be as easy to get around as people may think , has to be tested which I believe is pretty expensive and can take up to 18 months to clear.

Maybe they just legalize the green stuff and be done with it?

I agree that these should be banned
I disagree that 'the green stuff' should be made legal

Nothing beats the original stuff. All governments are doing is pushing people to use more risky drugs to get high. If people want to get high, let them.

I know a lot of people who take stuff they have no idea what it's doing to them.

You didnt think that reply out... No one would put effort into this product. They just get weed. How would it get into the country and or get manufactured?

Ethanol, cigarettes are just so much healthier.

This is politics not health.

Let's be honest, parliament won't ban those drugs because too many of us voters are users already and we like to think we are so much better than those loser types who use synthetic highs.
