Beware of Synthetic Marijuana:
'Legal' High a Dangerous Thrill for Young Americans


Also Known as K2 or Spice, Drug Causes Seizures in Some Young People people across the country are getting a new high from a powerful substance that isn't sold by drug dealers and is perfectly legal -- synthetic marijuana.

K2 or Spice, synthetic marijuana is available in states across the country, and it has the Drug Enforcement Administration deeply troubled.

Synthetic marijuana is a mixture of common herbs sprayed with synthetic chemicals that mimic the effects of marijuana.

A disclaimer on the packages stating that it is not for human consumption allows the substance to remain on store shelves.

Sold as incense in head shops, tobacco stores and even in gas stations, its popularity has soared.

In 12 states, its sale has been banned by legislatures, including Kansas, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oregon, Illinois, Michigan, and Kentucky.

It's also banned in some cities in Texas.

Still, it is legal in the remaining 37 states.

In the past year, there have been over 500 cases of adverse reactions to synthetic marijuana across the country, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

The number has risen exponentially, with the organization only citing 6 reported incidents from the year before.
