Attention All Readers – You Must Know


All yellow Porsche 997 Turbo

First i would like to thank each and every reader that has made our blog one of the largest if not the largest for herbal incense and bath salt reviews and news. I have had so many emails these past 2 months asking me if you can buy herbal incense products from me. I just dont have time to email every request back that i get and i never want a reader to think that we are not interacting with you.

Here is the facts, we do not in any way shape or form sell herbal incense products. We are simply a resource for information in the herbal incense spice world. We enjoy giving readers information about the herbal incense spice busts and the incense industy reviews on herbal products. I know that the DEA and law enforcement has cracked down hard on several business across the USA over the past 2 months and now herbal incense is much harder to find.

I know this because everyday i get all the news and busts from our large database of resources and news streams. But i want to make it very clear we are only a resource for learning everything there is to know about herbal incense and news. We do not sell, stock, or tell clients where to buy herbal products or bath salts. If a client sends us a sample of there herbal incense products and its a legal product, we will review that product and write a post to edcuate the public on what we feel about that product. Keep in mind everyone has a different opion about herbal products and everything in life.

Here is an example, i have a freind of mine that bought a brand new porsche and its an amazing car. But that car is bright yellow and to me its screams UGLY. Now everyone else might just love yellow porsches, but i cant stand yellow cars. Now if i was to write a review about that bright yellow car i would say what a nice ride but bad choice in the cars color. Lets say i posted a pic it here

Now how many of you think this yellow porsche 997 turbo is amazing? Well when i look at it i just see a yellow BEE.

So my point is that everyone does not agree on everything. Many times when i post about a herbal incense i have tried i do my best to insure that i let people know just how strong there herbal spice is. Well to me – a daily smoker, its not as strong as someone that might only smoke once a month. Thats why i do my best to be honest so that my readers know what there getting before they get it. But thats only my opion. If i here of any great websites selling wholesale herbal incense i will make a post and update you and try to do a mass email on all the requests that i get for it.

But honstly i dont like to tell people where to buy any products, just give you a review of what i tried what my personal opion is of that product and where i got it from.
Hope this helps and as always thanks for all the support from our readers. It really is awesome. We have over 300,000 visits per week and thats truly amazing!

ICE participates in nationwide synthetic drug takedown


ICE participates in nationwide synthetic drug takedown

 

WASHINGTON – More than 90 individuals were arrested and approximately five million packets of finished designer synthetic drugs were seized in the first-ever nationwide law enforcement action against the synthetic designer drug industry responsible for the production and sale of synthetic drugs that are often marketed as bath salts, Spice, incense, or plant food. More than $36 million in cash was also seized.

As of today, more than 4.8 million packets of synthetic cannabinoids (K2, Spice) and the products to produce nearly 13.6 million more, as well as 167,000 packets of synthetic cathinones (bath salts), and the products to produce an additional 392,000 were seized.

Operation Log Jam was conducted jointly by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), with assistance from the IRS Criminal Investigation, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, FBI, Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigations, as well as state and local law enforcement members in more than 109 U.S. cities and targeted every level of the synthetic designer drug industry, including retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers.

“Today, we struck a huge blow to the synthetic drug industry. The criminal organizations behind the importation, distribution and selling of these synthetic drugs have scant regard for human life in their reckless pursuit of illicit profits,” said Acting Director of ICE’s Office of Homeland Security Investigations James Chaparro. “ICE is committed to working with our law enforcement partners to bring this industry to its knees.”

“Although tremendous progress has been made in legislating and scheduling these dangerous substances, this enforcement action has disrupted the entire illegal industry, from manufacturers to retailers,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “Together with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners, we are committed to targeting these new and emerging drugs with every scientific, legislative and investigative tool at our disposal.”

“The synthetic drug industry is an emerging area where we can leverage our financial investigative expertise to trace the path of illicit drug proceeds by identifying the financial linkages among the various co-conspirators,” said Richard Weber, chief, IRS Criminal Investigation. “We will continue working with our law enforcement partners to disrupt and ultimately dismantle the highest level drug trafficking and drug money laundering organizations that pose the greatest threat to Americans and American interests.”

“The U.S. Postal Inspection Service aggressively investigates the use of the U.S. Mail system for the distribution of illegal controlled substances and its proceeds. Our agency uses a multi-tiered approach to these crimes: protection against the use of the mail for illegal purposes and enforcement of laws against drug trafficking and money laundering. This includes collaboration with other agencies,” said Chief Postal Inspector Guy J. Cottrell.

“The mission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection is to guard our country’s borders from people and goods that could harm our way of life,” said Acting Commissioner David V. Aguilar. “We are proud to be part of an operation that disrupts the flow of synthetic drugs into the country and out of the hands of the American people.”

Over the past several years, there has been a growing use of, and interest in, synthetic cathinones (stimulants/hallucinogens) sold under the guise of “bath salts” or “plant food.” Marketed under names such as “Ivory Wave,” “Purple Wave,” “Vanilla Sky,” or “Bliss,” these products are comprised of a class of dangerous substances perceived to mimic cocaine, LSD, MDMA and/or methamphetamine. Users have reported impaired perception, reduced motor control, disorientation, extreme paranoia and violent episodes. The long-term physical and psychological effects of use are unknown but potentially severe.

These products have become increasingly popular, particularly among teens and young adults and those who mistakenly believe they can bypass the drug testing protocols that have been set up by employers and government agencies to protect public safety. They are sold at a variety of retail outlets, in head shops and over the Internet. However, they have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for human consumption or for medical use, and there is no oversight of the manufacturing process.

Smokable herbal blends marketed as being “legal” and providing a marijuana-like high have also become increasingly popular, particularly among teens and young adults, because they are easily available and, in many cases, they are more potent and dangerous than marijuana. These products consist of plant material that has been coated with dangerous psychoactive compounds that mimic THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Just as with the synthetic cathinones, synthetic cannabinoids are sold at a variety of retail outlets, in head shops and over the Internet. Brands such as “Spice,” “K2,” “Blaze,” and “Red X Dawn” are labeled as incense to mask their intended purpose.

While many of the designer drugs being marketed today that were seized as part of Operation Log Jam are not specifically prohibited in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), the Controlled Substance Analogue Enforcement Act of 1986 (AEA) allows these drugs to be treated as controlled substances if they are proven to be chemically and/or pharmacologically similar to a Schedule I or Schedule II controlled substance. A number of cases that are part of Operation Log Jam will be prosecuted federally under this analogue provision, which specifically exists to combat these new and emerging designer drugs.

DEA has used its emergency scheduling authority to combat both synthetic cathinones (the so-called bath salts like Ivory Wave, etc.) and synthetic cannabinoids (the so-called incense products like K2, Spice, etc.), temporarily placing several of these dangerous chemicals into Schedule I of the CSA. Congress has also acted, permanently placing 26 substances into Schedule I of the CSA.

In 2010, poison centers nationwide responded to about 3,200 calls related to synthetic “Spice” and “bath salts.” In 2011, that number jumped to more than 13,000 calls. Sixty percent of the cases involved patients 25 and younger

Federal authorities crack down on synthetic drugs


In the first national crackdown on the burgeoning synthetic drug industry, federal drug agents have arrested 90 people and seized more than 5 million packets of the drugs, which may affect ongoing investigations in Wisconsin, authorities said Thursday.

The operation, launched by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, targeted synthetic drugs often marked as bath salts, incense, plant food or Spice, also known as synthetic marijuana.

None of the arrests occurred in Milwaukee, but cases under investigation may be connected to those takedowns, according to DEA assistant special agent in charge James Bohn of the Milwaukee office.

“We have ongoing local investigations into synthetic drugs that may be impacted by these other operations that occurred yesterday (Wednesday),” Bohn said.

According to the DEA office in Chicago, several seizures were made in other jurisdictions based on infor mation obtained from the investigations in Wisconsin.

Synthetic cannabis has been a bigger problem in Milwaukee than the so-called bath salts, according to Milwaukee police Capt. Anthony Smith, head of the narcotics division of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area.

Nationwide, people are inventing so many new ways to get high that lawmakers can’t seem to keep up.

Over the past two years, the U.S. has seen a surge in the use of synthetic drugs made of legal chemicals that mimic the dangerous effects of cocaine, amphetamines and other illegal stimulants.

The drugs are often sold at small, independent stores in misleading packaging that suggests common household items such as bath salts, incense and plant food. But the substances inside are powerful, mind-altering drugs that have been linked to bizarre and violent behavior across the country. Law enforcement officials refer to the drugs collectively as “bath salts,” though they have nothing in common with the fragrant toiletries used to moisturize skin.

States have been passing laws to outlaw synthetic marijuana and the so-called bath salts, and in 2011 Wisconsin passed such laws.

Smith said, however, that it is difficult to keep up with changes in the drugs.

“You change one minor thing and you change the chemical content and skirt the law,” Smith said.

Smith said that in Milwaukee law enforcement agencies see more traditional drugs such as cocaine, marijuana and heroin. But the synthetic drugs are certainly here, he said.

President Barack Obama signed a bill into law earlier this month that bans the sale, production and possession of more than two dozen of the most common bath salt drugs. But health professionals say lawmakers cannot keep pace with bath salt producers, who constantly adjust their chemical formulations to come up with new synthetic drugs that aren’t covered by new laws. Experts who have studied the problem estimate there are more than 100 different bath salt chemicals in circulation.

“The moment you start to regulate one of them, they’ll come out with a variant that sometimes is even more potent,” said Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

There are no back alleys or crack houses in America’s latest drug epidemic. The problem involves potent substances that amateur chemists make, package and sell in stores under brands such as “Ivory Wave,” “Vanilla Sky” and “Bliss” for as little as $15.

Emergencies related to the drugs have surged: The American Association of Poison Control Centers received more than 6,100 calls about bath salt drugs in 2011 – up from just 304 the year before – and more than 1,700 calls in the first half of 2012.

The problem for lawmakers is that it’s difficult to crack down on the drugs. U.S. laws prohibit the sale or possession of all substances that mimic illegal drugs, but only if federal prosecutors can show that they are intended for human use. People who make bath salts and similar drugs work around this by printing “not for human consumption” on the packet.

Barbara Carreno, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Administration, said the intended use for bath salts is clear.

“Everyone knows these are drugs to get high, including the sellers,” she said.

Many states have banned some of the most common bath salts, which are typically sold by small businesses such as convenience stores, tobacco shops and adult book stores. For instance, West Virginia legislators banned the bath salt drug MDPV last year, making it a misdemeanor to sell, buy or possess the synthetic drug.

Conviction means up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Mark Ryan, director of the Louisiana Poison Center, says there are so many different drugs out there that it’s almost impossible to know what people have ingested, or how long the effects will last.

“Cocaine is cocaine and meth is meth. We know what these things do,” he said. “But with these new drugs, every time the chemist alters the chemical structure, all bets are off.”

The financial lure for small-time drug makers is enticing. The drugs can be cheaply imported from China or India, and then easily packaged under local brands.

The widespread availability of the drugs in stores is equally alluring for drug users: They can get a cheap high similar to that of illegal drugs by walking to a corner store.

The most dangerous synthetic drugs are stimulants that affect levels of both dopamine and serotonin, brain chemicals that affect mood and perception. Users, who typically smoke or snort the drugs, may experience a surge in energy, fever and delusions of invincibility.

Hospital emergency rooms, doctors and law enforcement agencies across the country have struggled to control bath salt drug users who often are feverish and paranoid that they are being attacked. Doctors say users often turn up naked because bath salts raise their body temperature so much that they strip off their clothing.

To control the spread of the problem, the DEA issued a temporary ban in October on three of the most common drugs – mephedrone, methylone and MDPV.

That ban became permanent under the bill signed by Obama on July 10. Under the law, anyone convicted of selling, making or possessing 28 synthetic drugs, including bath salts, will face penalties similar to those for dealing traditional drugs like cocaine and heroin.

Those on the front lines say the legislation is a good start. But they don’t expect new laws to dramatically curb use of bath salts in the near term.

“The problem is these drugs are changing, and I’m sure they’re going to find some that are a little bit different chemically so they don’t fall under the law,” said Sullivan Smith, a Tennessee doctor.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

 

First TIme I Smoked Herbal Incense Spice


It all started with the sound of thunder.  Then the rain started to slam down from the sky and the storm began.  My friends Mike and Sara were over and we were stuck in the house since the rain was coming down and it was about 11 pm on a weeknight so there was not much to do.

My friend Sara asked me if I wanted to try some Herbal Incense or Spice.  I asked her what the heck she was talking about.  I mean wait you want me to smoke incense?  Don’t you burn that shit to make the house smell good?  As I say this, her and Mike just start laughing there ass off at me. Guess now I am the fool.

Me and my 2 friends smoking legal incense spice

Well I had smoked pot for years and always loved it but had quite smoking it several months back so I thought ok what the heck.  We all went in to my room and Sara pulled out this shiny package of herbal spice that had not yet been cracked open.

On the bag it said KUSH, First thing I thought was shit, they have bags of Kush now? What the heck is going on?   So she cut the top on the bag and poured the herbal spice on to our home made rolling tray.  Well book, but  we used it as a tray – shit it’s all we had.

Mike grabbed the rolling papers out of his back pocket and threw them across the room to Sara to roll up a fatty.  Now this is not your average fatty, it’s a fat joint of herbal incense spice. Kush herbal incense spice to be correct.

So she rolled up that kush and then passed it to me to due the honors of lighting up this bad boy.  First I am thinking ok this is going to be bull shit since its some sort of legal high.  I mean really she said she bought this at a gas station; the only high I ever got from a gas station was off a 4 pack of red bull.

I looked over at her and said “Hey does this Herbal Incense stuff show up in a drug test?”  Sara said NO, and again her and Mike start laughing their ass off at me.  I mean really I guess I am the joke of the night, and we have not even started smoking yet.

So I say ok guys enough, Let’s light up this fat joint of herbal incense spice and see what it’s all about.  At this time I have to tell you I was really thinking, “This is crazy”.

I light up the joint and took a long hard pull off it just as I would have treated a joint of hydro weed.  Then I held it in for several seconds and got that herbal taste in my lungs and exhaled the smoke. Nothing yet, I pass to Mike then wait to get the joint back in my hands for a second hit.  So I wind up smoking this entire joint with these two and by the time we are finished with it I am starting to feel something.

 

Ok, about five minutes has passed since my first hit.  You know how it takes longer to smoke when your in the circle with two others that want to hit it, then talk and tell you a damn five minute storey between each hit.  Most of the time its that storey that you have already heard from your friend 10 times and you can always finish for them.  Yea well this was one of them nights.  I am thinking to my self just hit the fucking joint and pass it to me.  Puff – Puff – Pass.  That’s the code that works, lets make that happen.

I know your thinking wait, first you did not even want to try it – had no clue what it even was. But now you want to hit it again and in a hurry.  Yes I know that is just from all my years of weed smoking and not fucking up the rotation of the joint passing.

So back to the review I would say about five minutes I started to feel really relaxed.  Mike and Sara were cracking jokes telling stories and we had a blast.  We were all super stoned or herbal high or legal high.  I am not sure the proper lingo of explaining I am stoned off some incense spice from the 7 eleven gas station.  Just sounds crazy as hell to even me.  But it is what it is.

I can tell you this herbal incense does work and it’s a great way to have a good time and relax and laugh with your friends.  I don’t know much about all the different types out there but we were smoking jonny Clearwater herbal incense spice.

After that first time smoking it I have bought some online myself a few times. Well honestly I make sure I pretty much never run out.  It’s pretty cheap stuff and I have to say you don’t feel like shit the next day and if you don’t smoke its not like weed where you feel as strung out and have that feeling like you “Have to Smoke”.

Anyway next time Mike and Sara come over I have a huge surprise for them. I bought some extra herbal incense online and its flavored.  Yea buddy its jonny Clearwater mango and I think there going to love it.

Oh, funny thing so the next day I went to that seven eleven and wanted to buy my own little baggie of herbal spice and the clerk told me that they stopped selling it. I was thinking are you fucking kidding me.  That’s why I had to go online and order it.  There is a ton of websites out there but I use http://someincense.com I found there the best priced and also have the largest selection on herbal incense.  I have never had a problem with an order and now I bet I have ordered from them 8 times.

Hope you enjoyed my review and hope you like Mike and Sara got a good laugh at me.  Thanks for reading and if you have any herbal spices I must try please leave a comment of your favorite I am always looking for new blends to review and smoke.

Milton business owners arrested for synthetics sales


JohnsonThe owners of two specialty “Smoke Shops” in Milton were arrested last week after they were found to be in possession of and sale of “Spice” or “bath salts” after the new state legislative ban.


Johnson

Michael Johnson, 37, owner of Stackhouse Records was arrested on six separate warrants after undercover officers made numerous purchases from his establishment since January. The suspected bath salts, sold under the pretenses of “Watch Cleaner,” were named “Role-X.” It was sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for chemical analysis and found to contain Flouroamphetamine, a controlled substance commonly found in “Bath Salts.”

“Spice” was sold under the pretenses of “Herbal Incense” under names such as “Baby Breath” and “Red Hot Poker.” It was sent to FDLE for chemical analysis and was found to contain illegal compounds commonly found in “Spice.”

Johnson also was charged with one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance for a small amount of “Spice” that was located in his establishment during a search warrant on April 3. Johnson was charged with three counts of Sale of Amphetamine, eight counts of Sale of a Hallucinogen, one count of Sale of a Synthetic Narcotic, and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance. He was being held at the Santa Rosa County Jail with no bond.

Rachael Hartsell, 31, owner of Showcase Smoke Shop, was arrested on a warrant stemming from a search warrant executed at her establishment on April 3. During that search warrant, Hartsell was found to be in possession over 1,000 packages of “Spice.”

There were 16 different brands being sold. A sample of each was sent to FDLE for chemical analysis and they were all found to contain chemicals which are controlled, or illegal to sell or possess.

Hartsell was arrested on 16 counts of Possession of an Illicit Substance with the Intent to Sell. Hartsell also was arrested on a warrant stemming from a sale of “Spice” to an undercover officer, on March 28. During that transaction, the undercover officer was able to purchase a package of “Mad Hatter,” which is sold under the pretenses of “potpourri.” This also contained controlled substances.

Hartsell was arrested and released on a $85,000 bond.

 

Sheriff Wendell Hall said undercover purchases are still taking place and will continue until the activity stops.
