We tried fake marijuana

There's been a new proliferation of legal products attempting to ape theeuphoria produced by illicit drugs, and Metro has the verdict on threeof them.

There's been a new proliferation of legal products attempting to ape the euphoria produced by illicit drugs, and Metro has the verdict on three of them.

Fake Ecstasy

The product: Blessed (sensory pills)

Verdict: Best left to the unadventurous

A herbal high that supposedly emulates the effects of ecstasy. In brief, it’s a flop. At best you’ll experience an agitation and frantic feeling not dissimilar from that of an instant coffee. Perhaps it’s not surprising, considering one of the main ingredients is caffeine.

Fake Cocaine

The product: Snow Blow

Verdict: It belongs behind the counter

The hippy-trippy looking assistant advised me “not to bother – all of the best ones have been taken off the market.” I’m guessing he was referring to Mephedrone (“plant food”), among others.

Fake Marijuana

The product: Wicked, Green ice

Verdict: Absolute giggle

I was the most skeptical about this one, not being a fan of the monged-out effects of cannabis. But my doubts were soon quashed with the onset of a euphoric giddiness, thanks to the ingredient JWH-018 commonly found in “synthetic cannabis.” A few tokes on this and you’ll be feeling jiggly and giggly while smiling. But be ready for the dry mouth, extra skin sensitivity (not necessarily a bad thing) and lack of coordination.
