Illegal by possible illegal law:

http://www.newschannel5.com/story/18060435/la...

The police are just grasping at straws and this move only shows desperation.

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of the United States federal executive departments. The FDA is responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of food safety, tobacco products, dietary supplements, prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs (medications), vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, blood transfusions, medical devices, electromagnetic radiation emitting devices (ERED), veterinary products, and cosmetics."

Missed the part where it covers incense.

"Under federal law, all businesses which manufacture or distribute controlled drugs, all health professionals entitled to dispense, administer or prescribe them, and all pharmacies entitled to fill prescriptions must register with the DEA. Registrants must comply with a series of regulatory requirements relating to drug security, records accountability, and adherence to standards."

Nothing about incense there either.

Not sure the difference between this incense and paint. Will the cops run to every store from a Home Depot to WalMart taking their products off the shelves next? Will they also be allowed to confiscate other merchandise as they do with incense?

If roles were reversed (if) would they allow us to pull something like this? I'm fairly sure the answer would be no.

How many of us have had our backs against the wall and merely needed to simply talk to them or a judge and been given the run around (or in the case of many judges flat out refusal of even an appointment without representation by a lawyer), they always seem to fall back on "Please follow the proper procedure and follow the law".

I don't think they're being very proper.

Before the stupid floods this thread can anyone tell me how this could be legal considering the comparisons between this and paint? Neither are meant to be used as a high but one can be banned?

As an American don't I have the same right to burn whatever incense I choose as much as anyone else has the right to pollute the atmosphere with whatever vehicle they choose?

Good point about the FDA and you are partially right the incense itself is not illegal....however the chemicals that are sprayed on the incense is controlled by FDA. The Hookah was just recently selling a product called HYDRO, when tested it contained a chemical compound Methanone that was considered a Schedule 1 non-narcotic. Schedule 1 means that it is a drug that is highly addictive with no medical usage. So to answer your question, yes it is controlled by the FDA because it was labeled a Schedule 1 drug by them.

Just get weed. It's safe and effective. Also if you have to get the fake stuff that makes you piss clean; then there's a problem somewhere. Just stay clean if you have to piss clean.

Cocaine, pot, pills, alcohol even heroin. Have all been documented on your side/longterm effects. I'm not in support of any drugs or "legal" alternatives. My point is. Your risking your future health every time you roll the dice on these alternative drugs. Please reconsider your fun times of today for your healthy tomorrow. My fathers famous quote to myself "you don't need drugs to act stupid, just act stupid"

for your knowledge:

"Good point about the FDA and you are partially right the incense itself is not illegal....however the chemicals that are sprayed on the incense is controlled by FDA.

Good point about the chemicals inside the incense. My fault really for not bringing up more specifics. Also, 2 quick questions:

Was this illegal by public knowledge before it was confiscated? There are repeated examples of smaller to larger legislatures passing these anti-synthetic laws and then confiscating and/or jailing before these laws become public knowledge. Very shady behavior.

Was this actually methanone or only a similar compound? It is a very big difference. No one I know would compare what was in lately to the original jhw-018 aroma.

Of course I have no problem with them following the democratic process, that is if they were to follow it. The path they are wanting to take now, especially on a national level, is to flat out ban all these chemicals and anything even remotely similar.

So, in short, I have no problem with them removing anything illegal but ordering people to have things tested on the off chance they contain anything illegal and holding up sales of those products is something I have a problem with.

Only if the store repeatedly broke the law would I have a problem but it seems as if they are merely following the law and continue to get held up by the police.
