In order for us to adequately fight the enemy, we must be aware of his weapons. Currently, Satan is using a weapon with a deceptive disguise. I want you to be aware of this, for the sake of your students, to warn and protect. The following article is taken from several articles, including one from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration website:
Satan’s newest snare….K2 – The New Kid on the Block
For many years people have been searching for legal alternatives to drugs that are used recreationally. These people, in their search for “fun” could do more damage to their bodies with these legal drugs than with drugs that are currently illegal.
Today, incense and bath salts are being sold as legal alternatives to marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine. In the case of the incense, it is a concoction of herbs that is sprayed down with a cocktail of chemicals. The herbs themselves are not the problem, it is the chemicals that are sprayed on them.
The purpose of the chemicals is to reproduce the feelings that someone gets when they smoke marijuana. The problem is that these chemicals are much more potent, and so the side-effects are proving to be more deadly. Some side effects of this new “legal marijuana” are high blood pressure, hallucination, and several people have committed suicide.
They are sold in headshops and tobacco stores. They are clearly labeled “not for human consumption,” although anyone who sells it knows what it is being used for. Legislatures are doing everything in their power to ban these dangerous chemicals.
In March 2011, the DEA passed an emergency ban on 5-chemical cocktail that is found in K2. Unfortunately, it is still being sold in many places across America. Not only is it still being sold, but the makers of these chemicals have changed the chemicals, so it is still not illegal to be sold. Many of these are being marketed under the names “K2”, “Spice,” “Blaze,” and “Red Dawn.”
These chemicals are not safe, and people are going to emergency rooms as a result of these drugs.
The answer to all drugs is the same: Jesus Christ. You can help keep your students accountable with specialized drug testing with their cooperation. Kits are available online starting at $59. Don’t let Satan win the victory!
Mat 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
