    Yup. Ever see the stuff? It looks like greenish yellow SAWDUST. That's another reason why legalization should be pushed for the real thing.

    Synthetic drugs are very dangerous and have no health benefits.

    Synthetic MJ better known as "spice" has been illegal up here ever since many people suffered similar medical problems as a result of use. Really sad to hear that another kid got hurt doing this but she's no one to blame but herself. Just like all the kids I've heard of who thought it would be a neat idea to ingest hand sanitizer as a quick buzz.

    I HOPE that all can share this with the young ones around ..
    because ..
    let's face it ..

    TOO many are experimenting foolishly ..
    and death/disability is the result ..

    BE AWARE of your children's friends and what they are doing ..
    and that includes tuning into any changes in their personality or habits ..
    ANYTHING out of the ordinary .. question ..
    get them HELP asap ..
    and keep them away from the ones you know are bad!

    I don't use but have warned my friends that do. Still think marijuana should be legal. It does alot less damage than alcohol.

    Synthetic marijuana gives marijuana a bad name. They should rename it.

    The video said the teens are using potpourri and other similar products to get a cheap non-marijuana high. It's extremely dangerous.

    Marijuana has been around long before man ever roamed the earth it's part of it. Meth is made from household chemicals and other man made poisons.Your choice to use either one or none at all.

    Even if marijuana becomes legal, that wouldn't stop people from selling synthetic marijuana on the black market.

    Legal highs are not safe. They are untested, for side effects or anything else.
    I guess if marijuana were legal, then there would be no market for legal highs such as salvia divinorum, (which I'm guessing is what she was smoking).
    It's just more evidence for the case against prohibition.
  • Cal macbeth 2013/01/13 17:53:08

    ...but Salvia is not a synthetic marijuana.....salvia would not have done that.
  • macbeth Cal 2013/01/13 18:24:23

    I know but, as there is no such thing as synthetic marijuana, I'm just guessing at what she was smoking. I agree, I've never heard of salvia having that effect, but I can't imagine what else it could have been, possibly salvia cut with something.
    LOL....I know how ridiculous it sounds, cutting salvia. Do you have any idea what she was smoking?

    Actually there is such a thing as synthetic marijuana. In my travels as an EMT I've come into contact with it a few times. Nothing as serious as what was reported in this story though just a bunch of experimenters too high and anxious rofl. I don't think it's plant based at all. My impression of it was that it appeared to be yellowish green sawdust. Like really old dried up marijuana grinded up. It actually comes that way in it's own package. The one I got from the kids was a little plastic container...I gave it to the ER Doc who's opinion was "what the $%^& am I supposed to do with this?!". haha.

    But yeah, it exists. I've seen it. It's not FDA controlled or anything and like the story describes...some of the chemicals found in it are scary. Chemicals humans should never come into contact with and every brand is different.

    Salvia is just going to throw you into massive hallucination; whether good or bad. Once watched a bud try it. He thought he was a lego for an hour, and something was attacking him. He swore he'd never try it again rofl.

    I did once try an ecstasy type legal high. Did absolutely nothing for me.
    I don't trust any of that stuff really. Thanks for the info re fake marijuana.

    Most 16 year old Texas girls have major brain damage anyways-- simply because they ARE Texas girls.
