The substance popularly known as K2 (JWH-018), in addition to other cannabinoids, is legal in Ohio. K2, also known as genie, spice, zohai, fake weed, or synthetic pot, is typically sold as incense. Although sometimes referred to as “synthetic marijuana,” the term confuses K2 with tetrahydrocannabinols, which are illegal under state law.
There is little research currently on the short- or long-term effects of K2 on humans. Anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that K2 may be more harmful to humans than organic marijuana. An increasing number of states have banned K2, along with some European countries. Currently, there are two Ohio General Assembly bills working their way through the legislative process that would make K2 illegal if passed.
