IS K2 Back?

By now, you may have seen a local smoke shop or convenience store display a sign that reads something like "K2 is Back!". Undoubtedly with a cornucopia of  other JWH research chemical and maybe some other type of synthetic cannabinoid, on them. Yes, you can still buy jwh online...for now.

The problem is, the DEA has given warning that they intend to regulate various JWH compounds. The grace period has expired, which means that at any moment, they can enact the ban officially and start carting people away and SEIZING assets in the middle of the day- or night.

However, there is word of a little economic impact rule in the US code that says that if it has a big economic impact like the JWH incense is, then a ban can not be implemented as it would devastate the economy and thus pose a national security risk.

I have no idea how true that is, or if they will just ignore it and ban JWH anyway, but the fact remains that we have a situation which is an unpredictable one. The DEA may take another 6 months to enact an offical ban on JWH compounds; and then there's the question of whether or not all or some other JWH compounds might be considered analogs to the banned substances. 

Imagine your local smoke shop or convenience store getting their assets seized!

But then also you can imagine the effect of prohibition- google it if you can't imagine.

The quest for the best jwh compound  and strongest synthetic cannabinoid has lead many that buy jwh online to ones such as JWH-122 and JWH-081, which is being sold and alleged to not be banned, however some say it may be considered an analog of jwh-018 because of it's chemical similarity. This would mean that when you buy jwh online you take the risk that it and many other JWH compounds would not have to be banned for them to be considered as such.
Then there's the question of the phenyl-acetyl group that includes jwh-210 I believe. These cannabinoids may be chemically different enough to avoid prosecution. But then again, if they can successfully argue that the effect of the synthetic cannabinoid is close enough to the JWH's that have been banned, then maybe not.

Is your local vendor re-opening shop?
Did they stop selling K2 at all, or was it never gone; and they just found alternatives to the banned substances?
Are you concerned the ban will affect your quality of life negatively?
Are you  a vendor concerned that the ban may impact your income negatively?
Are you or a vendor you know getting or making or selling products with the banned JWHs like jwh-018 and jwh-073?
Are you or a vendor you know dealing with "Un-banned" JWH's and if so, which ones?
JWH-081 seems popular and people report that it's more tolerable and mellow than the ones prompting the ban and so some PREFER the NEW alternatives, like JWH-081 and may contend that it is the best jwh compound available as far as perceived effect. Some claim that JWH-210 is the best jwh compound, and some still swear by jwh-018 as a more researched synthetic cannabinoid and the best jwh compound.
  Do you buy jwh incense online with an 'un-banned' synthetic cannabinoid and if so, what ones are on it?Let us know and let us know what you local shop or preferred vendor is doing in the face of this; we want to know!

nice blog. it seems am-2201 is a good replacement for the jwh series. though a stronger substitute. of course theoretically all synthetic cannabinoids are in danger of falling under the similar effect rule. i kinda think industrialization might take its normal path of patening these compounds, severly regulating the manufacture and selling and then maybe legalize. its what dupont did to hemp, they made chemicals based off of organic structures and then deemed those organic structure unsafe. which allows them to control the synthetic market as well as the natural. it really just matter how much money gleems in the eyes of the bureaucrats that can make it possible.
