Synthetic Pot Injury | Romanucci & Blandin
Synthetic marijuana, also known as K2 or Spice, is a plant matter that is sprayed with chemicals that have very similar effects as THC, which is the main compound that is found in marijuana. Synthetic marijuana has become a more popular drug choice for teenagers in recent years because it is a “legal” way to get high. These products contain powerful chemicals that are called cannabimimetics and they can cause serious side effects.
The Drug Enforcement Administration has revealed that synthetic marijuana can be up to 5 times more powerful than marijuana and has very dangerous short and long term side effects for users. Common side effects include:
- Hallucinations/psychotic episodes
- Increased blood pressure
- Increased heart rate
- Suicidal thoughts
In addition, there has been one confirmed death from using synthetic marijuana, roughly 600 poison control center calls and hundreds of emergency room visits for users.
