    Exclamation States Move to Stamp Out Synthetic Pot, Known as K2 or Spice

    A blend of herbs laced with synthetic marijuana known popularly as K2 is being sold openly in head shops and online, often sending people who smoke it to hospitals with symptoms ranging from soaring heart rates to paranoia to near-death experiences, according to health professionals.

    I know someone who uses this and it makes him INSANE. It needs to be banned everywhere ASAP.

    Thanks for posting this, DK. I read an article about this stuff the other day. I had never even heard of such a thing. Parents definitely need to be aware. It sounds very unsafe because everyone mixes up their own "concoction".....yikes!
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Dark Knight, I had never heard of this either, thanks. The spice sounds like the movie Dune. I hope parents will be aware of this new danger.

    Maybe this should be a sticky so more parents/people can learn about this new "legal" drug.

    See, the illegal variety, not nearly so dangerous as the legal variety.

    They've banned the sale of this stuff here locally. I work in mental health. We've had a couple of kids that needed mental health inpatient treatment thanks to the effects of this stuff.

    Ironically, they would have been better off smoking the real deal (Not that I'm advocating teens doing that!).

    ABC News is a bit slow, I posted this 4 months ago, and since I posted this, my county as well as most of the cities in my county have banned it.

    'Synthetic' marijuana is problem for US military

    U.S. troops are increasingly using an easy-to-get herbal mix called "Spice," which mimics a marijuana high, is hard to detect and can bring on hallucinations that last for days.

    The abuse of the substance has so alarmed military officials that they've launched an aggressive testing program that this year has led to the investigation of more than 1,100 suspected users.
