Perhaps we should all spin our way back to the spice discussion.
As for the chemicals in cigarettes and every other tobacco product. You are talking about apples and oranges. We know what is in cigarettes ( I hope ) and it has huge restrictions. What you do not know is what is going to kill you. You have no idea what is being used. The side effects , later situations that may take place. No research or any type of government oversight ( not that it cures everything by no means ). Just some guy in a garage mixing stuff up and selling it.
As far as this guy providing jobs and having no oversight sir , you have some serious issues. What I have read in your posts why not just remove all the laws concerning drugs, alcohol and controlled substances in general ?? What ?? I do not agree with all the laws but one thing I am well aware of is what I am putting into my body. With that being said ( NO ) I do not trust the government 100 % of the time. However, with NO oversight and no study on what may or may not happen then yes it concerns me.
This guy may be smart because he is making good money selling .... well ....... synthetic dope does not make him an good guy. If everyone took the stand of well he is employing people and what not then I guess you would have no problem with someone selling home made " drinks " to kids and adults made from god knows what that gets them high right ? This stuff needs to be put into check period.
My point, is that most of these chemicals occur naturally, such as cyanide, arsenic, and yes, even acetone. Because they are naturally occurring, it isn't always clear if they happened naturally, or were used to create the product. Case in point, most of the chemicals in tobacco are natural, and in such small amounts that they are negligible to the point that it took years to finally have the courage to say tobacco is harmful. Not being a smoker, I don't care, but, I know afew people that have smoked for more than 50 years without problems, and I believe it is more the tars present that get you.
