Herbal Smoke &/or Four Loko.....Anyone?

I was introduced to herbal smoke in June. I bought some K2 at a Tobacco shop in June one a friends recommendation. I used to smoke green years back and I tried salvia when it was legal but I was pretty skeptical that this legal "herbal smoke incense" would have any of the effects of the real thing. To my surprise I was wrong. This stuff is extremely relaxing and effective. I have tried many forms over the months, K2, Black Mamba and many other blends. I do it daily at night when I want to unwind. This stuff is now getting banned in IL January 1st which is just ridiculous. I was also recently introduced to Four Loko which is another thing that they are ready to give the boot to that too. The liquor store that I recently bought it from said no more shipments coming in. Oh well the best things always get banned by stiffs in politics anyway. I'll wait for the next, big moneymaker to come along and get banned by people looking to ruin it for anyone. I quote sublime in saying :
"Some folks say that smoking herb is a crime
If they catch you smokin' they're bound to drop the dime
Insufferable informa crazy fools
Wait with their fingers crossed for you to break the rules."
Cheers peeps

There's no reason to drink Four Loko if you are over 20.

If people do stupid shit with stuff, it winds up getting banned.

Four Loko is designed and marketed for doing stupid shit with. Duh.

I'm looking forward to watching your future posts as you progressively rot your brain.

The media hysteria over Four Loko has been stupefying, yet completely unsurprising in the least.

Has anyone done a study on whether Four Loko contributes to or negates the chick magnet effects of wearing Axe?

Yeah, you'd think it's the first time anyone had combined alcohol and caffeine.

I haven't tried K2 or or any of the other variants. I'd prefer to stick with the real thing which is almost certainly safer.

I know these legal highs are big business though, especially in Europe. Chemists have developed dozens and dozens of variants of popular illegal drugs like MDMA which have similar effects. They are pretty easy to find and order. Again, I would be hesitant to try any of them due to the extremely limited history of human consumption and associated unknowns.

Re: Herbal Smoke &/or Four Loko.....Anyone?

Ive had Four Loco a few times... Liked it because it took less drinking (compared to beer) to get me buzzed... One of the reasons I hate drinking it takes a few drinks to get me a buzz, then I feel really full... one of these does the trick

Re: Herbal Smoke &/or Four Loko.....Anyone?

I've tried 4Lok a couple of times, just 1 can per session. Didn't think it was evil--had less of an overall effect than I thought it would. Didn't feel too wired, didn't feel drunk. But definitely 'elevated' for quite a while. I think it would be a bad move to drink more than 1, tho. Stocked up on some today just because they're banning it here.

Didn't know salvia was illegal now. That is definitely not for general use/relaxing, but is an intense (and relatively short) hallucinogenic experience. Haven't tried any of the herbal mixes so I can't comment on those.

Oh, are you on the "straight and narrow"? I hadn't heard.
I don't drink or smoke... anymore.

I thought everybody knew that.

Fake weed doesn't cut it for me.

Here's a good article on the class warfare that is the attempted ban on Four Loko. I don't care for caffeine & alcohol drinks so I've never tried FL.

I just got back from a trip to Gainesville, and I actually thought it was quite nice!

Can't imagine trying some fake weed. If that were my thing, I'd just smoke the real stuff. You get in less trouble for that than internet gambling in WA.

Intentionally drawing any type of particulate into one's lungs never seemed like a good idea to me, but whatever floats your boat.


On the other hand, I equate the consumption of Four Loko with the wearing of caps sideways or whatever it is the cool kids are doing these days. [/shaking cane]

I think the funny thing about Four Loko is that I would have never even heard of the stuff if it weren't for all the government/media advertising of it.

And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

HAHAHA getting Iced. Who the hell came up with this. Is it supposed to be funny or is it just unintentionally funny in a lame way. When they started "icing" Ric Flair on TNA was when I heard about this.

Re: Herbal Smoke &/or Four Loko.....Anyone?

So was at the Bodega next to my apartment last night and bought a four loko to try so i could see what the hype was.... Now I've drank some rot gut shit in the past, but this shit makes MD20/20 or Boones seem like top shelf. Fucking hell i don't think I'll ever get the taste out of my mouth.
