Synthetic Marijuana: MOJO and SPICE: LEGAL High

Synthetic herbal incense called 'Mojo' a popular -- but pricey -- alternative to pot

Smoking marijuana can get you fired, but some employees are finding new ways of getting high without it showing up on a drug test.

"Mojo" is the name for a synthetic herbal incense, and it is becoming a popular -- but pricey -- alternative to marijuana.

Mojo isn't even a drug. It can be found at area head shops, corner gas stations and even pharmacies. It comes in a small package, but it packs a punch. And that high has attracted hard core drug users like Casey Nunez.

Nunez smokes mojo for the buzz it brings, he says, "because it's that good."

The faux pot is not cheap: We found one gram of mojo selling for around $40. The Drug Enforcement Agency reports mojo is more expensive than marijuana found on the street. The reason: Nunez says they buy mojo not only for the high, but because it's legal and it doesn't show up in a drug test.

It's also easy to buy mojo in San Antonio. KENS 5 sent a producer undercover to pick through the herbal incense selection of a San Antonio head shop. After spotting mojo, she asked the clerk if it’s used for anything else.

The clerk told her, "Yes, you can smoke it." The clerk even suggested that if she wanted a better buzz, she should buy "space," which is another type of herbal incense.

These herbs are sold as incense, and they can be found on the internet, where you must be 18 to purchase them. But underage students are getting it and getting high. At the local head shop KENS 5 visited, mojo is only sold to adults.

Mojo is so new to South Texas, SAISD reports they’ve never heard of the fake weed. The San Antonio police department’s narcotics unit was also unaware of mojo.

But many have heard of it. Friday night at the San Antonio head shop KENS 5 visited, our producer got the last gram. The clerk told our undercover producer they typically sell out of the synthetic herb and need extra staff to handle the orders.

Professor John Huffman from Clemson University created mojo as part of a pharmaceutical research project. In an email to a Missouri newspaper, "the professor says ‘Mojo’ has never been tested on humans and could have toxic results. It should not be used as a recreational drug."

Nunez admits he used to be an everyday marijuana user, but now he gets stoned on mojo. "It has a very similar feel to marijuana when you are under the influence of it," he said.

Faux pot lacks the chemical THC, and that attracts users like Nunez who smoke it for the buzz -- and to keep his habits hidden from his boss. "Ny job requires drug testing," Nunez said. "That's why I don't smoke weed."

Without THC, fake weed doesn’t show up in a company drug test, but a federal agency is catching on. The DEA is trying to replicate fake weed in the agency’s lab tests so it will show up on drug tests.

Mojo is legal in the state of Texas. However, the state of Kansas just made mojo illegal, and Missouri is looking to pass a similar law banning herbal incense.

Lawmakers push to ban mojo -- 'legal weed'

The Jefferson Parish law enforcement community is taking steps to try and better educate themselves about something called spice or mojo, which on the streets is known as legal weed.

The Jefferson Parish Alliance for Concerned Citizens met Wednesday morning at the DA's office to raise awareness about mojo. That awareness includes a push by District Attorney Paul Connick and other prosecutors around the state to try and get it outlawed this upcoming legislative session.

The alliance was created by Connick and its a group of people in the courts and the community who work with those dealing with drug addiction.

From prosecutors to sheriff's deputies to college students, the room was packed with people hoping to learn more about this new form of synthetic marijuana. It's sold at head shops all across the metro area, not to mention gas stations and convenience stores.

And users say the high is more potent than marijuana. It's also more expensive than weed. But people even teenagers buy it because it doesn't show up on drug tests. Now, DA Paul Connick says he and the Attorney General's Office will push to include a law against mojo in the DA's association's legislative package this year.

"We have to find a way to corral it as much as possible," said Connick. "We'll probably never stop it completely, just like we can't stop marijuana, but we have to have some laws in place that will regulate it in some fashion and have some criminal consequences to it to its use before we can ratchet it down. But it is difficult."

Those who support the legalization of even marijuana are using mojo to bolster their position, saying people want to smoke marijuana like they drink alcohol. And that mojo is evidence that people are looking for a way to do it without breaking the law.

All this shit is nothing like marijuana, it's complete shit that gives a mild buzz.

And they say "A LEGAL HIGH" like alcohol is outlawed.

Re: Synthetic Marijuana: MOJO and SPICE: LEGAL High

Marijuana does far less damage to people than alchohol, opiates, or these synthetic things.....If they legalized it then most of their problems would go away.

Re: Synthetic Marijuana: MOJO and SPICE: LEGAL High

Eh. They should just legalize and regulate marijuana. It should be of similar legality to alcohol.
