Synthetic Marijuana Can Be Deadly
K2 is a relatively new substance, as are a number of synthetic drugs. Every year, underground drug makers work hard to create new versions of addictive substances that are technically legal, because their chemical structures are slightly different than currently abused illegal drugs. These synthetic drugs provide similar effects to their illegal counterparts. Unfortunately, though these drugs are legal, they are far from safe. Their long-term effects are completely unknown and their short-term effects can be devastating. They include:
- Uncontrollable spastic body movements
- Increased heart rate and palpitations
- Higher blood pressure
If you recognize the symptoms above in someone you care about and drug abuse is the cause, they may be struggling with the abuse of synthetic marijuana.
