Well readers we have not written about Synthetic Marijuana for awhile, we thought it was time to see what’s happening in 2014, from some of the most respected news sources in Australia.

The Sydney morning herald talks about how businesses are bypassing each of the synthetic marijuana states laws to supply desperate customers in QLD. It turns out that the products is being sent from Victoria to post boxes near the Queensland border where they are then picked up and driven across.
