“Feds move to ban chemicals used to make ‘fake pot’” is the actual title of the article. Aside from the regular list of things I might say about this, it amuses/disgusts me that our federal government is, well look:
The emergency ban will be in place for a year as federal officials study whether the products and chemicals should be permanently controlled, it said.
Synthetic weed causes an “emergency ban?” Really? I get so irritated at the order of priority of our federal government.
The five targeted chemicals are identified as JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP-47497 and cannabicyclohexanol.
The letters JWH in those chemicals stand for John W. Huffman, the inventor of it. He wasn’t much of a hippie, but that is not why I included the above paragraph. The above paragraph was included because it inspired me to imagine Jimi Hendrix flying along in his Weed-Dream-Car which runs on pure cannabicyclohexanol. Go Jimi. Go.
P.S. JC, if you ever return from Iran, please add “Weed-Dream-Car” to our list of tags.
