David Haley explains why he voted against criminalizing K2 synthetic weed

Kansas legislator’s didn’t wait for anything as trivial as scientific evidence before banning synthetic cannabinoids JWH-073 and JWH-018 — the chemicals that give K2 its ability to mimic the effects of real weed — the subjects of last week’s Pitch feature story, “Fake Reefer Madness.”

Sure some scientists think the synthetics could be used in research for diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, but why risk it when people might be using it to laugh for 20 minutes?

Only one Kansas senator voted against the legislation, KCK’s David Haley.
