Oh, this would also apply to all psychoactive receptors and chemicals now floating around in our heads.

I'm sure some are thinking, boy, "this guy is nuts" or very poor at sarcastic style of humor. To those who don't find the current affairs concerning Cannabis insane enough, I've got one word for you...Mengele. If you don't know who this is, I recommend you to look it up. It was only 65 years ago.
and yet God or whoever also created naturally occurring cannabinoids in foods,

are you ready to say goodbye to chocolate, cashews, and other foods? can't wait to meet your significant other on valentines day, "hey I got you this box of dirt"...lol

The Endocannabinoid system of the body cannot just be erased out of our DNA as some kind of defect, in fact doing such a thing would produce a being that would not be human since so many of our higher functions and motor skills are reliant on it, it would not be a monkey, might not even be a mammal, without such a system and the way in which we process foods we would be more like a spider or some insect that needs to barf his stomach acid onto it's prey and then come back later and ingest it.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

I would like to mention that a recent Bill called the Synthetic Control Act (HR 1254) has passed the House.

This bill spearheaded by Pa's own Charlie Dent has basically made every JWH or AM cannabinoid illegal regardless of their analog status to any other already schedule one substance.

The bill uses a term called "CANNABIMIMETIC AGENTS" and unless "specifically exempted" everything made thus far or that will be discovered will be included in this legislation.

I'm assuming they are going to "specifically exempt" foods and other products already approved by the FDA from the ban.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

Sorry in advance for the lack of info in this post. In California, as of January 1st, it seems that all synthetic cannabinoids are illegal. This is just what the owner of my local smoke shop told me when I asked what happened to their "spice". I am currently trying to find more info.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

Mexico is the answer... or any other country that hasn't gone law crazy. As more money leaves the US economy, the lawmakers here will have to take notice. I don't think all is lost, but I do think a changes in strategy are called for.

Ironically CA's ban was "Senate Bill 420" (same designation given to the bill legalizing medical marijuana years ago)
It makes sale or possesion a misdemeanor.

(b) As used in this section, the term “synthetic cannabinoid compound” refers to any of the following substances:
(1) 1-pentyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-018).
(2) 1-butyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-073).
(3) 1-[2-(4-morpholinyl)ethyl]-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-200).
(4) 5-(1,1-dimethylheptyl)-2-[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol

(5) 5-(1,1-dimethyloctyl)-2-[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol
(cannabicyclohexanol; CP-47, 497 C8 homologue).
CA does also have it's own Analog Act law as well:
CA Health and Safety Code, CH 6.5
Quote:
Section 11400 - Legislative findings; analogs of controlled substances; punishment



The Legislature finds and declares that the laws of this state which prohibit the possession, possession for sale, offer for sale, sale, manufacturing, and transportation of controlled substances are being circumvented by the commission of those acts with respect to analogs of specified controlled substances which have, are represented to have, or are intended to have effects on the central nervous system which are substantially similar to, or greater than, the controlled substances classified in Sections 11054 and 11055 elf which they are analogs. These analogs have been synthesized by so-called "street chemists" and imported into this state from other jurisdictions as precursors to, or substitutes for, controlled substances, due to the nonexistence of applicable criminal penalties. These analogs present grave dangers to the health and safety of the people of this state. Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature that a controlled substance analog as defined in Section 11401 be considered identical, for purposes of the penalties and punishment specified in Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 11350), to the controlled substance in Section llQ54 or 11055 of which it is an analog. (Added by Stats.1988, c. 712, § 4, eff Aug 29, 1988.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

The new laws seems to have scared the local smoke shop out of carrying blends, but would I be able to purchase JWH-210 without persecution? I know that the above mentioned analog act would make it illegal, but technically the US has an analog act that should make all synthetic cannabinoids illegal, and yet they are sold in head shops all over the country.

Potpourri has been banned in my city of Ogden for about 2 months now so I was forced to drive to Salt Lake City to get it. About 2 days ago it has turned up once again in Ogden. Will they ever be able to get rid of it?

WHEREAS, synthetic cannabinoids are frequently applied to plant materials and then
packaged and marketed online, and in convenience stores, gas stations and smoke shops as
incense, herbal mixtures or potpourri, and often carry a “not for human consumption” label, and
are not approved for medical use in the United States; and
WHEREAS, products containing synthetic cannabinoids are, in actuality,, produced,
distributed, marketed and sold, as a supposed “legal alternative” to marijuana and for the purpose
of being consumed by an individual, most often by smoking, either through a pipe, a water pipe,
4
?s
C
U
or rolled in cigarette papers; and
WHEREAS, synthetic cannabinoids have been linked to severe adverse reactions,
including death and acute renal failure, and reported side effects include: tachycardia (increased
heart rate); paranoid behavior, agitation and irritability; nausea and vomiting; confusion;
drowsiness; headache; hypertension; electrolyte abnormalities; seizures; and syncope (loss of
consciousness); and
WHEREAS, products containing synthetic cannabinoids have become prevalent drugs of
abuse, especially among teens and young adults. Calls to New York State Poison Control
centers relating to the consumption of synthetic cannabinoids have increased dramatically, with a
total of 105 reported incidents of exposure to these substances having been reported since 2011,
compared to four reported instances in 2009 and 2010. Over half of the calls to the Upstate
Poison Control Center this year involved children under the age of 19 years of age. Nationally,
poison control centers have received approximately 8,000 calls relating to exposure to these
substances since 2011. Calls received by poison control centers generally reflect only a small
percentage of actual instances ofpoisoning. Therefore, it is clear that many additional New
York residents have been harmed as a result of using products containing synthetic cannabinoids;
and
WHEREAS, on March 1, 2011, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA) temporarily scheduled five synthetic cannabinoids, JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP
47, 497 and cannabicyclohexanol (CP 47, 497, C8, which is a homologue of CP 47, 497), as
Schedule 1 substances under the federal Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. § 812[c]), in order
to avoid an imminent hazard to public safety, because the substances have a high potential for
5
abuse and have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States. On March 1,
2012, the federal DEA ban was extended for six months; and
WHEREAS, individuals and entities can avoid -- and have avoided -- the federal ban of
specifically identified synthetic cannabinoids by developing or synthesizing cannabinoids that
are not expressly covered under any such ban; and
WHEREAS, based upon the foregoing, the Commissioner of Health of the State ofNew
York, after investigation, is of the opinion that the sale or distribution of products containing
synthetic cannabinoids, including, but not limited to, the products identified in the Appendix, is
an activity which constitutes danger to the health, safety and welfare of the people of the State of
New York; and
WHEREAS, it therefore appears to be prejudicial to the interest of the people to delay
action for fifteen (15) days until an opportunity for a hearing can be provided in accordance with
the provisions of Public Health Law § 12-a.
NOW, THEREFORE, THE COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH DOES HEREBY ORDER
THAT:
1) Pursuant to Public Health Law § 16, any individual or entity in the State ofNew
York engaged in the sale or distribution of products containing synthetic cannabinoids,
including, but not limited to, those products identified in the Appendix, and that receives notice
of this Order, shall immediately cease the sale and/or distribution of said products in New York
State.
2) The presiding officer of each local health unit or local board of health in the State
ofNew York, is hereby directed, pursuant to Public Health Law § 1303(4) and Title 10 NYCRR
6
8.5, to convene each such local health unit or local board of health as is necessary to disseminate
this Order and to ensure compliance with this Order.
FURTHER, I DO HEREBY give notice that any individual or entity that receives notice
of and is subject to this Order shall be provided an opportunity to beheard within fifteen (15)
days of service of this Order, at the offices of the New York State Department of Health, to
present proof that the sale or distribution of products containing synthetic cannabinoids does not
constitute a danger to the health of the people of the State ofNew York. Any such individual or
entity that wishes to avail themselves of this opportunity, should noti& the Department of Health
in writing, within five (5) days of receipt of service of this Order, to the following address: New

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

So living in California I have been watching the laws very carefully, and a bill is going through legislation right now (quoted below).

Its still very early, and anything can happen with this bill. But seeing the feds and other states making the same move I don't think this is going to have a problem getting passed.

I also have a question, my chemistry knowledge is very limited so I just don’t know.

How extensive/detailed is this bill? In terms of which synthetic cannabinoids are going to be banned, and which ones will be legal?

Quote:
BILL NUMBER: AB 2420 AMENDED
BILL TEXT

AMENDED IN ASSEMBLY MARCH 28, 2012

INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Hueso
(Coauthor: Assembly Member Fletcher)
(Coauthor: Senator Vargas)

FEBRUARY 24, 2012

An act to amend Section 48900 of the Education Code, and to
amend Sections 11357.5 and 11375.5 of the Health and Safety
Code, relating to controlled substances.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2420, as amended, Hueso. Controlled substances: synthetic
cannabinoids and synthetic stimulants.
Existing law provides that every person who sells, dispenses,
distributes, furnishes, administers, or gives, or offers to sell,
dispense, distribute, furnish, administer, or give, or possesses for
sale any synthetic cannabinoid compound, or any synthetic cannabinoid
derivative, to any person, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by
imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding 6 months, or by a fine
not exceeding $1,000, or by both that fine and imprisonment. Existing
law defines a synthetic cannabinoid compound for purposes of this
provision.
Existing law also provides that every person who sells, dispenses,
distributes, furnishes, administers, or gives, or offers to sell,
dispense, distribute, furnish, administer, or give, any synthetic
stimulant compound, as specified, or any synthetic stimulant
derivative, to any person, or who possesses that compound or
derivative for sale, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by
imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding 6 months, or by a fine
not exceeding $1,000, or by both that fine and imprisonment.
This bill would provide that every person who possesses, under
circumstances that do not include possession for sale as proscribed
pursuant to existing law, 28.5 grams or less of any synthetic
cannabinoid is guilty of an infraction punishable by a fine of not
more than $100. The bill would provide that every person who
possesses, under circumstances that do not include possession for
sale as proscribed pursuant to existing law, 28.5 grams or less of
any synthetic stimulant compound, as specified, or any synthetic
stimulant derivative, shall be punished by imprisonment in a county
jail for a period of not more than one month, or by a fine not
exceeding $500, or by both that fine and imprisonment. In addition,
the bill would also provide that every person who possesses, under
circumstances that do not include possession for sale as proscribed
pursuant to existing law, more than 28.5 grams of any synthetic
cannabinoid, any synthetic stimulant compound, as specified, or any
synthetic stimulant derivative, shall be punished by imprisonment in
a county jail for a period of not more than 6 months, or by a fine
not exceeding $1,000, or by both that fine and imprisonment.
The bill would also expand the definition of synthetic
cannabinoids for purposes of the prohibitions described above to
mean synthetic cannabinoid agonists that include, among other
compounds, naphthoylindoles, naphthylmethylindoles,
naphthoylpyrroles, naphthylmethylindenes, phenylacetylindoles,
cyclohexylphenols, benzoylindoles, and adamantoylindoles.
Because the bill would create new crimes, the bill would impose a
state-mandated local program.
Existing law authorizes the suspension or expulsion of a pupil
from school if the superintendent or the principal of the school
determines that the pupil has unlawfully possessed, used, sold,
furnished, or was under the influence of a controlled substance, an
alcoholic beverage, or an intoxicant of any kind.
This bill would expand those provisions to include synthetic
cannabinoid compounds and synthetic stimulant compounds.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

There's something new on the jwh-018 wikipedia that caught my eye today. It claims that since it has now been over a year since the temporary ban or those classic 6, products containing them are once again legally being sold in the US. Is this true or bullshit?

It's bullshit. The emergency scheduling was extended for six months. JWH-018 is also a controlled substance under state law in most if not all US states at this point in time too.

See: JWH-018 Federal ban set to expire?

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

My friend sometimes worries that the banning of these substances may only lead to stronger and more dangerous ones being put out on the market to replace them, it seems like for each instance of a research chemical being banned, that they manage to find another to take it's place, this has to come to a boiling point eventually so to speak..something will be released that is extremely potent or dangerous. Just my two cents on the subject.

I just read the entire wiki article and it doesn't say that anywhere on the entire page. Why would you post this? How does making up things about legal statuses help a thread like this. :/

Not sure how you got what you said out of that.

I should check my headshops just for trivial purposes. A friend who works at one here says it's been weird...it's like some of them are going back and forth with clearing stock and then realizing they can keep stocking. It's like they keep preparing for a ban that never happens or something. I've heard of numerous "blow out" sales over the last few months without any literal ban controlling the products being sold happening.

Whoa, I swear to god they just changed that. Perhaps it was vandalized then fixed, and I saw the vandalism. Look i'm no pathological liar, it really said that earlier today.

(someone correct me if I am wrong) No one I know messes with them, but I would guess many businesses in NYC will risk the fine and may make more than that in a week from selling blends. I don't know how popular they would be or not. I am too out of any real loop on blend usage, but am interested in following any legislation.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

Since this is a very dynamic envirionment it gets very frustrating to keep up with what is going on in your own state much less others. I ran across the following organizations web site when I was doing some research on Synthetic Cannabinods.

The National Conference of State Legislatures (ncsl.org)

They have a database of enacted and pending state legislation that is kept pretty much up to date. There are currently two pages available on the site which present the results of recent database searches listing all the enacted and pending legislation alphabetically by state.

Given the issues with posting links I will leave it to those interested to find them.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

While the NCSL site is certainly useful I have referred to it in the past only to find that their summary of the state laws does in some cases overlook key details. If you're referring to them for information then I'd advise that you just use it to identify relevant bills and laws and then go and read the specific legislation rather than taking their keynotes summary as gospel.

Hey, I live in New York and I recently ordered an herbal incense online and after ordering it I discovered that synthetic cannabinoids were banned in NYS. They put it in a bubble mailer in priority USPS mail. What do you guys think will happen? Will they just throw out the contents or should I start running like hell?

Update: Just so you guys know, My order arrived in the mail this afternoon. It was wrapped up really tight with packing tape in a bubble mailer inside of an envelope. This shit shipped from Los Angeles, California, to Albany, NY, to my town in upstate NY just fine.

Re: US Legal Status of Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice) by State

If all drugs with cannabinoid-like effects are banned/going to be banned, how can they possibly word it in a way that would not affect paracetamol/acetaminophen? It acts as a pro-drug for a cannabimimetic metabolite inducing analgesia. I wonder if people made this aware to the legislatures, made them look like idiots, and brought this to light how this would affect the process of banning synthetic materials using the language they do and no burden of proof for the effects they say the drugs have.

This cross anyone's mind? I read some legislation on here, whether it was US or elsewhere, banning drugs with cannabinomimentic effects. This would include prodrugs I would assume and since it has that effect on the CNS, do they only mean mimicking the effects of the drug on a person's sensations, perceptions, etc. If so, how would they know what cannabis "feels like" and be able to generalize that? Here me out.

Its a schedule I drug. There is no way for them to know (being sarcastic but still, doesnt it seem odd that a substance can be banned for possessing effects that induce intoxication similar to a drug that is already banned and technically they should not be able to know what the drugs intoxicating effects are? I mean technically its based on the level of addictiveness/danger it poses, not any subjective effects?)

I just blew my own mind away....
