Official K2 Incense contains NO banned substances and therefore will remain legal under Federal Drug Enforcement agency (DEA) new rules
As you may be aware the Federal Drug Enforcement agency (DEA) made an announcement regarding certain ingredients that it thought were being used in fake K2 on 11/24/10. They plan to outlaw some of the ingredients used to make these fake blends of K2 Spice for a period of one year, while tests can take place.
Official K2 has been independently tested and does not contain any of the substances that are covered under this legislation
However, please make sure that you review the K2 map below for already standing state laws in your local area, which are previous to this judgement.

K2 Incense has been all over the news reports over the past few months as legislators have been trying to decide if the product should continue to remain legal. With the help of the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency, the law makers have considered the dangers of K2 Incense and have decided to place certain restrictions on purchases until further studies are conducted.
On November 24, 2010, the DEA announced that they will spend 12 months reviewing K2 blends by recreating the incense using synthetic chemicals in a laboratory setting. Until their research is completed, some states have chosen to outlaw some of the stronger varieities of K2 herbal blends. Right now, customers from around the world can still purchase all blends of K2 incense legally until December 24, 2010 before the new bans are enacted.
The chemicals that the DEA suspects to be dangerous include JWH-018, cannabicyclohexanol, JWH-073, CP47, CP 497 and JWH-200. Each state has made their own individual laws regarding the various K2 scents depending on their chemical content. You can review individual state laws online to find out what is permitted in your state.
Many people wonder why K2 Incense is still being sold if there is a risk of chemical dangers involved. In short, the problem lies in imitation competitor brands rather than in the authentic K2 incense. Many of the generic companies are adding chemicals to the K2 that are both dangerous and deadly. When you buy from a reputable, verified company, you don’t have to worry about these issues.
With due respect to federal law, make sure you are shopping carefully to avoid chemicals that are dangerous. You can identify the cheap generic K2 imitations in a few ways. The first obvious way to know that K2 is dangerous is if it comes in a bag that is not properly sealed. If you buy K2 incense and it is delivered in a zip top bag or something similar that is easily opened, you need to be seriously cautious. True K2 incense comes in a completely sealed package that is tamper proof.
Another thing that can indicate a generic variety of K2 is poor quality labeling on the packages. Each bag is sold in 3 gram sizes and has a high resolution label marking the K2 aroma. True K2 Incense will have a vividly colored, high quality logo that is both professionally printed and perfectly aligned. If your label is crooked or poor quality, that is a good tip that you are not using true K2 Incense and you should beware of the dangers.
Ultimately, you need to consult with your state’s laws to find out which aromas of K2 Incense are legal. While some states allow all K2 Incense blends to be bought and sold, others have strict laws regulating it. To be on the safe side, check with your state legislature before placing your order.
