Spice, also known as synthetic marijuana has had exponential growth over the last five years. When this drug was first introduced it was used for a variety of reasons apart from getting high. The drug was not detectable on urine and blood screens. That is why we have seen so many teenagers and young adults using it. It even went and hit our military. In the last two years the military has dismissed more than 2000 soldiers for the abuse of spice and bath salts. Marijuana is a drug, it can and is harmful in the physical and mental sense. The issue with the designer drugs is that no one really knows what chemical compound makes up the drug and its side effects are devastating. There have been numerous accounts of people commiting suicide and homicide. In Arizona a husband and wife we using bath salts. The husband became so paranoid that he killed his child and wife and then himself. The delusions and mental state of someone on these drugs is multiplied 10 times what their counter part drugs of pot and crystal meth do. Poison control centers reported over 4000 cases last year for overdoses. Below are some of the signs and symptoms of bath salt abuse and spice abuse.
- Seizures and Tremors
- Very High Blood Pressure
