The substance popularly known as K2 (JWH-018), and other cannabinoids, is still legal in North Carolina, despite the rise in illegalization of K2 in other states. K2 might also be called genie, spice, zohai, fake weed, or synthetic pot, and is typically sold as incense or potpourri. K2 may sometimes be referred to as "synthetic marijuana," but this term is misleading and confuses K2 with tetrahydrocannabinols, which have been illegal under North Carolina state law for some time.
There is little research currently in existence on the short or long term effects of K2 on humans. Some anecdotal evidence suggests that K2 may be more harmful to humans than marijuana. A rising number of states along with some European countries have already made the substance illegal.
