The Spice Drug: A Dangerous New Drug

Updated on June 26, 2012

Drug Abuse That Is Legal

There’s a drug popular with teens in the U.S. that many parents may never have heard of, but worst of all – it is legal. This drug, called “Spice” or “K2” is said to give the user a marijuana-like high. Sold in shops and online as incense, it is being smoked as a legal alternative to marijuana. But this drug appears to have far more dangerous side-effects and without the necessary regulation, consumers have no idea what they’re really getting.

Spice originally appeared on the scene in the late 1990s, but didn’t really become popular until 2008. As the drug gained popularity in Europe, scientists began conducting research into the composition of this drug and any potential effects on the body. As a result of these investigations, many countries subsequently banned Spice including Germany, France, Chile, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, and the U.K. The United States currently has no such ban on the drug, likely due to the fact that it has only recently become popular in the U.S.

German researchers were able to determine that Spice contained a variety of synthetic cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds devised to produce marijuana-like effects. There was a high quantity of other synthetic chemicals found as well, indicating that a user really has no way of knowing what they are being exposed to. Worse yet, Spice appears to have many negative side effects that marijuana does not such as anxiety attacks, hallucinations, nausea, and a chemical dependency. Three teenagers in Roswell, GA were recently hospitalized after using Spice. One teen had a severe reaction to the drug, resulting in swelling of the brain.

Currently there is no way to test for the use of Spice, as it is not a regulated drug. Theoretically, children under the age of 18 cannot buy the drug, as head shops and online stores are not supposed to sell to minors. As this drug is still legal in the U.S., many people may be led to believe that it is a safe alternative to marijuana. This could not be further from the truth. Parents, teachers, and lawmakers need to be made aware that this drug is out there and that it has the potential to harm the lives of our children.

    See, that's your guys' problem right there. You are only supposed to hit it about two or three times. I smoke spice every single day because i have stress and anger problems. I have never had that happen before. By the looks of your stories, all of you are persistent to saying that you take a lot of hits and smoke how many bongs and bowls. YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO! Don't try to scare everyone. Yeah, spice is bad, but you're not giving the right message by telling people your horrible experiences all because YOU fucked up.

    My son, Jake, smoked Spice for about 9 months and then killed himself! He was 19 and a sophmore in college. This stuff gradually gave him a severe addiction and he felt he needed it constantly to make him happy. Unfortunately, when he was not smoking Spice, withdrawal would force him into a deep depression with frequent intense thoughts of suicide. As a result, he would smoke more and more to try and feel happy. This cycle ended when he ran out of money to buy Spice and he succumbed to his chemical induced psychosis and his frequent thoughts of killing himself. He was a very successful young man who used this product because it was legal. He was the last person that anyone would expect to commit suicide. This synthetic marijuana has led to numerous suicides over the course of the last year. Please don't open the door to this life threatening substance.

    All of the negative people sound the same. like Anon said, "i thought i was gonna die omg blah blah blah". YOU SMOKED 2 GRAMS in ONE NIGHT!!! wtf do you expect from that??? it isnt weed! i smoked weed for 5 years and had to quit so i use this a few nights a week taking 1-2 or 2-3 hits gets you PLENTY high for 30-45 minutes. there is NO reason to be smoking 2 grams in one night, or bowl after bowl after bowl that is just stupid. it takes a minute to kick in just be patient and dont over do it. that is where you guys are making the mistake take it slow. when i smoke too much yes it feels shitty and weird but i know i just over did it so you have to wait it out til it wears off for being an idiot and not being patient lol. YOUR NOT GONNA DIE you just did too much. let the people who know how to use it have our fun dont ruin it for us because you guys over-do it and freak out like your gonna die.

    Ive been smoking spice for about a year, smoked it when I got home and before bed, sometimes you smoke to much get paranoid twitches headaches etc. smoked every day but the more you smoke the less fun the trips are, I just smoked and the high lasts about 40m-1h30, that being said Ive had my fair share of terrible trips, 2 big gravs and you will wish you diddnt smoke so much, you will be twitching like a crack head with a dome splitting headache. if you smoke it dont be a dumbass and hit it like bud, cause its not you cant rip it like that.

    iv been smokin spice for about a year with no negative affects ever but i have seen people throw up from it and then they just sit there really stoned for about 20 min. my average hi lasts about 30 to 45 min, but it feels like for ever the problem is theirs so many different kinds of it iv had some called diablo that fucked me up completely but didn't seem as safe as others iv tried. i have found that the stuff that looks more like poperie obviously less natural than others seems to have more negative affects on most people that iv smoked with and all my associates agree not to use those kinds any more. some brands that iv used and i think are more on the safe side are happy hour, spiz, spaz, wicked triplex, Medusa. i rec amend happy hour for beginners wicked3x is very strong as is Medusa. just be careful if you want to try it take one hit and wait till you feel it a little and just chill with it. but know Ur limits and take it slow. and for all my fellow military members don't get caught with this shit im getting separated because of it hooyaa go navy beat army 10 years of dominance.

    My senior year of high school the police did a presentation on spice and I learned many things I didn't know about spice. Unlike marijuana (I have tried both) spice is not a plant, it's a powdered substance produced in China. The powder is very dangerous because it can dissolve in water and be ingested causing a powerful and intense trip that can last up to 48 hours. When used spice can have effects similar to that of PCP. Mood swings and delusions are common. The worst part about the drug is many head shops do not ID and overdose can cause many negative side effects. This is not the only problem. The drug comes in so many derivatives that the US, in order to ban, has to ban each strain individually, which could take a while. From personal experience I do not recommend this drug AT all. I experienced euphoria at first, but vomiting and muscle spasms came with too much of the drug, which is not fun, especially when paranoia sets in. If you're trying to have fun, there's many other fun things to do.

    wheather or not it is used as a drug that is not its purpose and people should stop making a big deal out of it to try and make it illegal...just like caugh medication people are using that to get high as well so why not make that illegal also stupid huh....so really i think its the parents responsibility to make sure anything that can is in their kids hads is used properly if u are so concerned cause no matter watt as of now it is still legal....

    So I Have to Finish my Ridiculously Long Ass Post from Above cuz it Cut Off Before I Got to the Best Part! So I Get Out of the Hospital After 6 Days Still Thinking It Couldn't have Been the Spice I Go Home Determined Not to Smoke Cigarettes and I Sleep for like 14 Hours Straight. The Next Day I Wake Up Sore & Stiff and I Get Really Tired like Exhausted Just Getting Up to Make Coffee. So I Smoke a Little Spice Thinking It Might Make me Feel a Little Better Only the Opposite Happens. By 7pm my Fever Spiked Back Up My Heart Wouldn't Stop Pounding and I Was So Dizzy I'm Positive I Blacked Out on the Couch Before I Called for Help. Three More Days in the Hospital and the Attending Physician Who has Seen Me Through this Ordeal Tells Me that He is Certain that the Pneumonia and Resulting Heart Issues and Toxemia was Caused by a Severe Allergic Reaction to Prolonged Exposure to Something in my Home... I Never Did Tell Him about Smoking Spice... Now I Don't Know if I Buy Into the whole Allergic Reaction Theory but I Can't Ignore the Fact that I Relapsed almost Immediately After Smoking Spice a Couple Times.

    I Believe I Am Addicted and Even Now a Couple Days After Getting Out the Second Time... I Wanna Smoke It... Even Though I KNOW It Damn Near Killed Me. This Shit is Dangerous and Even as I Type That. I Still Wanna Smoke It. I Hope I have the Willpower to say No... My Boyfriend is Not Convinced it was the Spice that Made Me So Sick and has Chosen to Continue Smoking... of Course He Doesn't have the Option to Smoke Weed... I Do. Fuck That Toxic Shit it's Not Worth It... Wish it Wasn't so Easy to Get...

I have been searching for the answers to why this happened and so I thought I would try some where where someone might could give me accurate information on "spice" My son had found this as an alternative to marijuana and on the day of his death he had supposedly smoke a lot of it and had a zanex as well.I am still waiting for tox report. I was trying to find out if that was a deadly mix and may be the reason for his delusional suicidal thoughts that night. Just desperately looking for answers so I can inform others and hopefully get peace in the process. ty

    I tired spice for the first time on Friday. The only thing I have ever smoked before that was Hookah. One thing I have to say is that you MUST KNOW YOUR LIMITS! I smoked a bit too much and my body got very, very numb. I experienced short term memory loss, gaps in my concentration, elevated heart rate; the sensation of the world moving around me. I knew I was rocking back and forth but couldn't seem to get myself to stop.

    I had a bad first experience. That is a fact. But once I came down from the high I actually found it to be very interesting. I'm planning on trying it again, only much less than I did on Friday.

    Based on everything I have read, people had similar or even worse experiences than I did. It is not safe. That is a fact. I'm lucky I didn't get hurt or suffer any permanent damage (as far as I know). Each person in the world has a unique chemical makeup. When introducing new chemicals to that makeup, there are unforeseen reactions. Just be smart. Try it if you must, but even I (a non-weed smoker) would prefer you use actual cannabis as opposed to this synthetic stuff. The risks are far greater when you smoke spice, regardless of how much or how little you smoke.

    yeah 6 years ago

    I tried it once because I knew it was legal and therefore assumed it was safe. It only lasted an hour and a half but it felt like forever. It was like my brain knew what was happening but I couldn't control my body. It freaked me out. Anyway, I agree that there needs to be more information known about it... I'm ashamed that I tried it without looking up what it was.

    The effects I had were very similar to everyone else's. I got dizzy, couldn't walk/talk. My mouth was dry, my heart was beating very fast, and I kept shaking and twitching. Honestly my body didn't feel completely normal until about a month later at the least. I would still get random twitches and my mind would every once in a while feel like it wasn't attached to my body.

    Carson,

    My son read your post today. He said he also say tunnels only he had three. One was what he thought was real, one was to a cartoon world, and one was black? He said he tried to focus on the one he thought was real but that the cartoon world kept pulling him in.

    Another problem that i am having with my son is he doesn't understand "big words" anymore. Words like assume, occasionally or other words similar? He use to have a very wide vocabulary. Does your girlfriend have any of the same problems?

    It has been over a month now since my son took spice. He still isn't right! He has breathing problems. He explains it as several quick breaths at a time as if he has been crying for hours and is trying to stop. His heart still beats irregular. The doctors don't what is causing him to do it other then it didn't start until his spice overdose. He is getting regular headaches now too. I don't know how to help him! It scares me. He is only 14 and may has messed up his body forever! The doctors tell me that this drug is still to new to know all of the side effects and that new ones are being listed everyday! What are these kids thinking? I wonder to myself everyday. Is life really that bad that you have to use a drug like this one? Thank you to all of you that have been supportive to all of the families that are having issues with this. I hope and pray that all of our loved ones come out of this without any long lasting effects!

I blacked-out, then remember lets just say hot and bothered, (putting it nicely) for two hours.Then I fell asleep just to wake to having two seizures and dry mouth. I don't feel its for me. Today I woke up still feel out of it and a headache.

    I don't recomend smoking spice. I've done it a numerous amount of times before, but after yesterday evening, never again. I took one long, good, hit. I coughed, and it came out my nose. It gave me an instant high. Everything was moving, my body kept twitching and shaking. I was really dizzy. I couldn't keep my eyes open, and my head kept rolling back. I kept repeating the same thing over and over, asking if I was okay. My insides were freezing. It wasn't that feeling like when you're cold, but the INSIDE of me was cold. My eyelids felt cold too. I was scratchign at my face, and pulling my hair trying to "get it out". My heart beat went from exom extremely fast to extremely slow. I kept forgetting to breathe, too. When the people I was with all talked at once, it hurt my ears so bad. Honestly, I felt like I was going to die. We went back to my boyfriend's house, and he layed there, holding me, telling me I was going to be okay. I tried not falling asleep in fear that I wasn't going to wake up.

    If all the natural things that God put on this planlet for us to enjoy like marijuana and cocaine were legal people would be happy with that. You wouldn't have people making meth in their trailers and you wouldn't have kids doing spice. People just want to have something to get high and feel better with. So let's make the good stuff legal so no one gets hurt. Cause let's face it, people would smoke dryer lint if they thought it would get them high.

    oh just like with ne drug especially synths never add ne thing, never try the enhance version (flavors, blends or brands etc..) n bcare who u get it from.

    P.s. ive nvr did drugs n my life n i only drink socially n ive seen drug abuse n many forms.

    In my opinion weed n it's natural form is safe ever thing else is dangerous especially synths like crack, spice, meth n ne designer drug. n dont let me get on those legel over da corner drugs yeeesh!!

    ok straight up i have smoked alot of spice in my short life. from red magic to 420 ultra so i know what im talking about when i say dont underestimate this drug. while driving home from college i took 2 rips literally just 2 of 420 ultra and i was tripping balls. just that morning i was with my friends and after those 2 hits i remembered nothing. i couldnt remember or even try to understand the concept of who i was, where i was, why i was in a vehicle, and what i had done to get myself this way. basically i was to the point where i thought i was going to die.. side effects consisted of rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, lack of feeling in all limbs and also my face, a pressure in the frontal lobe of my skull, o and cant forget the hallucinations and anxiety attacks... for anyone reading this im not saying dont smoke spice or weed trust me im not the type of person who would ever want to stop smoking just be careful when you do it some batches of spice are stronger than others. and parents and non smokers dont give me shit about smoking this article is actually here to warn people about this drug.. would i say its dangerous? yes IF its used in a unresponible way. spice is LEGAL just like tobacco and liquor and should be used in a responible manor the same as any other legal substance.

    First of all Ive smoked the green for at least a decade and can only remember maybe 2 bad trip. I think the biggest mistake I made when smoking spice was smoking it like it was weed. IT'S NOT WEED. It doesnt slowly ramp out it just hit you. The first time I tried I was actually driving some friends home. They were passing the blunt like normal, what I'm used to. But what I wasn't use to was after taking only 2 drags, I was pretty dam high. I had to pass. Ive never had to pass after just 2 hits with weed. So my friend lived in an area Ive never been to before, I tell you it took alot of concentration to get my navigational bareings back online, and when I finally drove to familar territory, my bareings still tried to drop away making me feel lost. The key simply calming down, being in the moment and simply enjoying the ride. I was releaved to finally get home. Remind you people this was after only 2 pretty lite hits. The for me was stressful mainly because of having to fight off the feeling of being lost, my motor skills felt fine. Once in the house the high was fine much like weed. Well day 2, it was late, and I was like how high can you get with this fake weed stuff (no respect, and a mistake). This time I took 4 big hits and held each of them for a while before exhaling. By the time I walk upstair to my room I felt the Ultra-high coming on. I was excited at first, but the it just ramped, and ramped, and ramped up exponentally. Nothing like weed. I mean it was to the point that I know the key to it all was me staying calm because I knew Ive been this high before. Apart of it was cool how the TV looked, but like the others this strong surge of panic came over me which I knew was weird because thats just not my disposition to worry about EVERYTHING at once, but I was lossing the fight I felt like the only thing I could do was go to bed. And it was a slight struggle to get there. I strugged a bit to calm down and went to sleep. What does this all mean? Well for me this spicy stuff is like the Everclear of weed. It doessnt have any kind of top out effect the way weed does, the user actually has to be more responsible and have more control. I couldn't imagine a teen let alone a group of teen have eiither of the two qualities. For the teens that are smoking this ad posting about their bad trips thats all good, seriously, but what the heck are you guys out there doing smoking this stuff. Where your parents, this is strictly for adults. But control I think is the key, I dont see why anyone in their right mind would hit this stuff from a bong, there then teens. It you over do spicy hitting it the way you would weed it will stinken steamroll you. That all I really wanted to say.

    OMG i almost forgot to say, DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT MIX WITH ALCOHOL. I havent had this happen to me but i did witness it many, many, many times. When spice is mixed with alcohol, for some people it will cause them to throw up uncontrollably. I swear i watched this for myself, my friend was crying to me for help as he threw up for at least five minutes straight. I was afraid he was going to die in the passenger side of my car. Although this hasn't happen to me and some of my other friends, i wouldn't suggest you find out what group you fall under. Again, stay safe, stay lifted.

    As someone who use to smoke this stuff everyday, multiple times a day. I think i can give some well needed advice to parents and new users. First off stick with the mr. nice guy brand. They high feels better and the side effects aren't as bad. It's not marijuana people it is a drug and does have side effects like all drugs. Again I can't stress how much this isn't marijuana and is sometimes 10x or even 100x stronger. Most people make the mistake of smoking this stuff for the first time and smoking entirely too much. This stuff takes a minute to work. Give it time. This stuff was made for you to take one or two hits and be high for an hour or two. A lot of the newer K2, K3 and spice brands have more immediate and intense highs. These are the most dangerous and you need to be the most cautious because these have the worst side effects. Also some brands are made to freak you out, to cause you to hallucinate or to induce weird dreams. Even mr. nice guy brands do this, though they normally leave a clue on the pack. For example a kid smoked way too much of Panic, a mr. nice guy brand spice, and it caused him to kill himself. I had the experience of smoking this brand it does exactly what it says it going to do. I smoked two bowls with my friend(3 hits each per bowl), I was high for a total of 8hrs. It cuased me to become extremely paranoid and was not a high that I was enjoying at all, so i decided to go to sleep. Even though I went to sleep, I woke up still as high as I was when i first did it and still has paranoid. I stress to you that you should research the spice you smoke before you smoke it. No one really knows all the ingredients of the spice and almost all contain a chemical that hides all the other chemicals it contains and studies are still be conducted on spice now. My honest advice to everyone is that if you have to smoke spice only smoke the regular mr nice guy and mr. nice guy stuck. Mr. Nice guy stuck is the closest high to the high of marijuana. But of course this stuff effects everyone differently and everyone has different side effects. The indicator that caused me to cut back was the constant short term memory loss. I was forgetting words, passwords, homework assignments. But it got so bad that one day I was in the middle of a sentence and I stopped, i had no idea what i had been talking about, no idea what i had say or was about to say. It took me a minute to remember. A lot of research analysis' say that it can cause a chemical dependency, I would say that it does, even though i was able to stop cold turkey. For people who have problem breaking habits i wouldn't suggest you start smoking spice.Advice for all parents, spice still leaves some of the same indicators of marijuana such as red eyes and the "muchies" and others such as short term memory loss, unlike weed there is no distinct smell that spice leaves other than the smell that something has been burning. I hope this helps everyone. Stay safe guys, and stay lifted.

    This stuff has got so out of control... This is a drug. And if used a lot it will eventually consume the user until they die. I have used it from many different states and finally after quitting, I feel it has ruined my life. I am 38 years old, family of 5. Please people, listen to what is going on... It is killing people.

    My uncle died from the use of spice just this past weekend. His heart had begun beating so out of control that it exploded. He leaves behind his wife and two children, one of which is 5 with autism and was left home alone for several hours after his father died before the mother returned from work. The cops saw what he had used, picked it up and put it back down saying that it was legal. They also said that they are getting called onto more and more calls where people have just suddenly died after use. It's not something to mess around with! No high can be worth that risk. I'm not trying to tell you how to live your life I just want to make sure that it is known that death is not only possible from the use of this drug but that it is currently on the rise. RIP Matt.

    I was addicted to spice (monkey family) to the point to where i Woud wake up in the morning with a stomach ache like I had ulsurs.. as soon as I smoked it went away.. I have freaked out more than once thinking I was going to die, like last night when my girlfriend found me passed out in a puddle if puke, doesn't mix well with alcohol.. yet I still smoke it.. I was withdralwing because im addicted and that's the same reason I relaps.. I wish I could smoke weed but its too hard to find in this small town and drugtests are always on my mind.. please don't smoke spice or potporri, stick to the herb if you can.. im going to suffer with this addiction for the rest of my life and it may just take my life

    my brother jason dean brody is dead now because of a legal drug known as spice. his favorite brand was black widow. he smoked pot before with no negative side effects. being that he wanted a job and life out of trouble he switched. Now instead he is cold alone and dead. This could have been prevented. It took him only 7 months to die couching up his lungs and vomiting his stomach contents. He now has A beautiful little girl that will never know what a smart ambitisious kind hearted man her father was. So yes i am angry because how many of YOU SPICE SMOKERS are going to be here to support a grieving family or raise a child. Instead of being angry at a post for a concern maybe u should plan ur funeral or find a cheap ass doctor to heal ur dumbass when u hit the negative end of ur fake, flavored pot. if it was so safe why then doe it have its own page on poisin control websites and 89% more negative rateings than any othe illeagal drug.

    hey concerned mother, last night i had a similar experience. minus the hallucinations. i got spice from our roommate. last night my girlfriend smoked it. only 2 hits from a normal sized glass pipe. she never smokes weed but we were told that it had the same effects as pot. curiosity almost killed the cat. she ended up in the hospital cuz she thought she was going to die. b4 i called 911, she had the most scared yet serious look on her face and kept repeating to me that she was going to die. she was 100% sure. she also kept saying..."there are 2 tunnels. one where i think its real, and one where i think it isnt." over and over and over. turns out it has a PCP effect. FAR from marijuana. i also smoked some but it didnt effect me nearly as bad. i want this shit off the streets! how can something like this be legal? its been 12 hours and she is still kinda trippin, but coming down slowly. sorry about ur son concerned mother =(. i hope my girfriend isnt permantly damaged as well =(

    concerned mother 6 years ago

    I have heard about spice from some friends before however as of two weeks ago I have first hand experience with this drug. On October 25thabout 4:30pm I got a phone call from the EMT’s. They told me some lady had found my son lying in the middle of the road, passed out and unconscious. They told me to come down to the seen. My son was covered in vomit. I asked him what he took and he said he didn’t know. He was crying uncontrollably and started freaking out. He kept telling me that dinosaurs were chasing him and that a tiger was ripping his arm apart. I looked at his arm and it was purple and swelled! He started crying to me saying “Mom can’t you see I’m dying here and no buddy is helping me. I don’t know mom but I’m dying here. Can’t you see it! I’m dying and no buddy is helping me!” He started pointing out to the road and saying “can’t you seem them mom. They are right there. They are chasing me and this tiger is eating my arm. I can feel it and it hurts so bad!” my son then began to push at the tiger. He kept saying “mom get it off of me.” I couldn’t see anything and I couldn’t help him!

    The police officer said my son grabbed him and said “hey dude shoot me please!” The cop refused to shoot him. He asked the cop what he needed to do to get the cop to shoot him. He then proceeded to fight the cops so that they would shoot him.

    I had the EMT’s take him by ambulance to the hospital. We were there several hours. He was hooked up to all kinds of IV’s and heart monitors. His heart almost stopped during his ride to the hospital. His heart only had one beat in 30 seconds! After the ER visit he spent 12 days in a mental hospital to finish detoxing. He almost died that night! He only took 4 hits off of the pipe and it almost killed him. He smoked it with three other kids that day and none of them had a reaction like he did. I thought he was going to die. It is a really bad drug. My son to this day still isn’t right? He is very angry and continues to have suicide thoughts.

    i've smoked spices do to employment drug testing and i've noticed that when smoked too frequently and in larger amounts it causes serious paranoia, (which would explain why so many idiots are freaking out over it), but otherwise it creates a legit high. i don't know what's going into my body but otherwise don't care, its your own choice people stop blaming others and man up to your decisions.

    I have tried spice about a year ago, just one hit and it made me feel like walls were closing in on me, once i pulled myself together, i swore i would never smoke it again. Still to this day i refuse to smoke it. I have a little brother who is 18, he has had an ADHD problem since he was 2 and was on all different kinds of medicine. when he turned about 16 years old, he began to smoke pot. I will agree that it did help him. He began to be more civil and not so angry, he began to help around the house and just all around be a nicer person to be around. About a year ago he was introduced to spice, not that i agree with it, but its legal, so at first me and my mother didnt think anything of it. He started to smoke it more and more, more than he smoked weed. He would just sit in his car for hours. If you tried talking to him, he would just stare at you,as if he seen a ghost. this has been going on for months now! His temper and lack of respect is out of control. He had it all too. He graduated from high school and had scholarship for acting in california, brand new truck, and a job. One night as he is smoking this spice, i get a phonecall that says "please come get me, i have been in a wreck and totaled my truck" i went to the scene. He is lucky to be alive today! His truck was totaled and so was the other vehicle. Luckily no one got hurt! He spaced out and swerved and hit another car on the other side of the road. My point here is that SPICE IS HARMFUL! FOR THOSE WHO THINK IT IS OK, ITS NOT! They say it affects everyone differently, yes i agree, but when is enough? No kid who thinks he is cool is gonna know when he has had enough. My brother has turned into a zombie, i cant even talk to him or spend time with him or even get him to take trash out. What do you do? Kick him out? why so he can go stay with friends and get more high? Or have him rebel against us even more? He is big and mucsle tone, so ther is no simple ass beating for him these days. I truly dont know what to do? Im trying everything to be here for him, but what happens when its too late and he ends up in the hospital? Im a very concerned sister and would love to bring my brother back to normal!

    My son smoked 7 grams of K2 one time (he was 18, now he's 19). He had all the reactions I'm reading about, elevated heartbeat, etc. A year later he's still having muscle twitches and horrible headaches even though he hasn't touched the stuff since that first time. Tonight his headache was so bad that he went to the emergency room. They did an MRI and the doctor told him he has a "big ass hole in his brain", good thing he's not dead, nothing you can do about it. I wasn't there, and didn't get to hear what was said. Anybody know of anything like this happening to someone who smoked this stuff one time??? Thanks in advance

    im a 19 year old in az, i use to smoke spice everyday for 8 months stright. i have stopped now. this drug is very dangerous and shouldnt be legal. parents if you find your teens or kids trying it you should be very worried. people should know that yes the first couple times you try this it can make you start tripping out, seeing things, making your heart race and also have trouble beathing. But after you smoke it a couple times you will start to build a tollerance for it and it makes spice not look so bad after all. but it is very bad! as you bulid a tollerance then you need more of it to get that high that you want. as some of you may know they have different strengths. when i first started smoking spice there was only 1x, 2x, and 3x. So i started with 1x, after a while i built a tollerance and went to 2x and it worked and then so on i went to 3x. anyways what im trying to get at is now they have stregths uo too 10x!!!! this is insane. i have a friend that has been smoking spice for the last year now and he is now smoking 10x. he has to smoke this out of a bong now too get high from it he has built such a tollerance and he smokes at least 3 grams a day. he isnt the same person anymore i really think long term effect on this stuff isnt good, its almost as he has gone crazy. you cant even really have a conversation with him anymore, almost like if this drug can make you brain dead. since i hangout with him not too long ago i was stressed so i smoked some with him and it was the 10x. this stuff is crazy. i was tripping the fuck out, but what i have learned from smoking it PARENTS IF YOUR KIDS OR IF ANYONE STARTS FREAKING OUT FROM THIS STUFF THEY NEED TOO TAKE DEEP BREATHS, DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND START EATING AS MUCH AS THEY CAN ITS THE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF THE HIGH in less then 10 min. and to the people that think spice is okay and nothing wrong with, go out to the store and buy 10x and try it, i dont care who you are but i know you will change your mind right away after you do. PARENTS ALSO DONT LET YOUR KIDS FOOL YOU THAT JUST CAUSE ITS LEGAL THAT ITS ALRIGHT TO SMOKE. MY PARENTS HAD CAUGHT ME WITH IT WHEN I WAS LIVING WITH THEM AND I TOLD THEM ITS LEGAL AND YOUR ABLE TO BUY IT AT THE STORE AND THEY JUST DIDNT CARE SINCE ITS "LEGAL". i really hope to see this stuff legal soon!

    I took 2 hits of this shitty drug last month and I felt like I was dying for the next 2 hours. 10 seconds after I smoked it, my head began to spin and everything slowed down. All I could hear was my friends voices echoing in the background. I could not breath. I could not speak. I could not move. I seriously felt like those were my last minutes of life. After a while, I started coming down and for some reason was twitching uncontrollably. I felt like a fucking tweaker... This "high" was the worst feeling I've ever had in my life. I really don't recommend anyone smoking this so-called alternative to weed. Half the comments on here will pretty much tell you the same thing. It's horrible.

    i smoked it about 4 times before the other night but the other night it was awful

    i took a huge hit out of a gravity bong and ended up burning the whole blow.

    then i walked inside and it wasn't bad for about 7 seconds then it mindfucks the shit out of you.

    you have no control of your body you dont know what your doing all you want is it to stop.

    then everything goes into slow motions and people walking around you are moving frame by frame as if it was pictures in a notepad and you where flipping the pages

    it felt like hours when its only been seconds and i kept seeing the same thing over and over again in my head of my friends asking if i was alright but i didn't want to respond because i didn't know how to speak.

    when people say it feels like you are dying, i actually died and lost consciousness and when i woke up it was only about 4 minutes from when i frist smoked it and it felt like forever.

    then i had a little soberness to ask for help from a trained professional but when you scream at your friends to call 911 because they have no idea what just happened to you they wont do it. but to end this without going on forever its a bad high its a heavy drug in the category of acid cocaine or even meth. DONT FUCKIN DOO IT!!

    Look.. Spice is what it is and people are who they are. Find your limits and don't pass them, I have smoke spice for a couple months and I love it. It's great it makes me stupid and have crazy sensations just like weed. And I get to have a little fun on the weekends without having to worry about being fired from my job. Paranoia. Panic attacks. Really? Weed does the same thing. Though I agree that spice is a far different high then weed it feels pretty differnt and I encourage you to buy it from headshops and not dealers. But i've done plenty of research and I gotta say people are overdosing which is possible with this drug. So don't abuse it and it isn't an epidemic.

    people seriously look up poor coping techniques any form of addicitive behavior falls under that. That includes everything from caffine to food, and every form of drug legal or not there is. Not to mention the all time favorite, alcohol! Seriously the only reason people do these things is to avoid dealing with the things they need and should deal with to begin with or the best of reason is to "fit in". Come on the human race is better than any of this! Phil 4:8. Set your mind on the what is true, noble, pure, and lovely. Some it up focus on the positive! There is nothing positive about any drugs, alcohol, or other addicitve behavior.

    Ive beeen smoking this stuff called "Kush" referred on the packet as "herbal insense" Ive been smoking on a daily basis for 6 months now. I recently got arrested and I am on papers so I have been smoking it more heavily probably 11 grams a week. I have not noticed any side effects other then it is addicting, I find myself on the internet trying to scare myself into not doing this but 5 min later right back outside hitting a bowl or blunt. headaches, irregular hearbeats have occured 2. Last night I smoked and must of not rolled my blunt tight enough and a piece of insense got into my mouth and I was coughing all night long. The truth about it is it is not safe. Nothing you smoke is safe. But if your going to do this anyways no your limits

    Well. I've tried weed( chronic) about a year ago, and I got really paranoid. I just kept smoking and smoking until I felt something.

    I've learned that spice is legal,

    And that it's 100X more powerfully than weed. It's really not even like it.

    But I've had somefriends that just tell me to take it slow

    Take a hit, and wait until your good enough to take another.

    Well I only took 1 hit and found my self feeling like I was 50 feet off the ground. I was starting to feel numb( that's when I start to freak) so I started to pace back and forth. To keep myself from preventing that feeling. I was able to calm down and Sit down a while.

    Weed and spice aren't like I thought they were gonna be like.

    But yet I still do my research until I feel comfortable to try it again.

    Yes it is scary when your paranoid.

    Those of you out there probably know how it feels like.

    Have someone sober there to

    Comfort you.

    My message to you is just to take it slow. And if you can't handle it ( like me) than just don't do it.

    It's not worth damaging your body.

    Spice may be legal but I was lucky enough to calm myself down.

    Just smoke weed.

    This chemical shit, is probably worse the. Extaccy, and If you do start tripping out on spark,

    Well, doctors can't to shit about it because the damn u.s hasn't researched it clearly.

    Don't do it.

    Even if you want to.

It felt like days and days and I guess I fell down stairs, tried smashing my head on the concrete floor, and was screaming uncontrollably... I scared my family and my friends so bad...

    I've been there and done that as far as drugs are concerned. Believe me. Although this is the first I have heard of "Spice" aka. "K2", it is not the only readily available "legal" high out there. I don't think that the answer to every substance on earth which may or may not cause a high should be "outlawed". All this creates is more government control over our every action, and more and more reasons for "law-enforcement" to ruin people's lives. I agree that the drug is dangerous and should NOT be used by any human to get high, but making "everything" against the law is NOT the answer. Just like making "guns" illegal is NOT the answer! This country was formed with the knowledge that every individual has to make their OWN judgements about what they should and should NOT DO! Simply outlawing stupidity is not the answer!!! - Because as we all know there are a lot of "stupid" people out there, and people who are going to do what is wrong regardless of the legal repurcussions. I believe that PUBLIC AWARENESS, along with the knowledge of exactly what is right, and what is wrong is the main problem with society today. People as a whole have NO MORALS, or SELF-CONVICTION. Our country was founded on christianity. On a system of beliefs. They grew up knowing what was appropriate, and what wasn't. Our country needs GOD NOW, more than it ever has!! We can't continue to blame the sin, but the sinner!!!!! Until people realize for themselves that doing ANYTHING to yourself that is harmful is not only stupid, but wrong in every way --> NO MATTER WHAT YOUR RELIGION, then we will continue to have stupid people eating, snorting, shooting, and smoking anything they can get their hands on to get "HIGH". If we spent half the money on education of exactly what all of the the harmful chemicals actually do to your body and mind, that we spend trying to pass more laws, we would have a much safer, and cleaner society.

She is in the 8th grade. I believe that if your going to promote and sell a probuct then you should be completly honest with the consumer. The package says it is incents not for human consumption. I believe that the head shops should be carding and if they are cought selling to a minor there should be a heavy fine and if there going to continue to sell to minors they should be shut down!

That said...i have a story for anyone thinking on trying spice or any other "legal" high I witnessed 2 brothers...one tried it and was fine, not a problem at all...the other took one hit, one hit...he is no longer with us anymore, passed away 5 hours after 1 hit people!!! (5 hours of hell) He experienced the same effects as leanna. I held him as his body jerked for 3 hours..literally jumping off the couch. I felt his body burning up as this drug cooked his body core and brain. He kept coming to and asking if he was gonna die. He would vomit then he was out again. I remember him saying before he died...this stuff should not be legal i am in so much pain...please help me...please help me...so please i beg you...leave this stuff alone!!!

    For whoever it was that said "how many people have died from this" being a sarcastic douche, 12 people in North Carolina from May to June died from this shit. So stfu. And I myself nearly died and dont pull that fucking "you smoked too much" bullshit, just bc you didn't have a bad experience doesnt mean shit. I took half a hit and was gone. The person who explained it as "It was as if I rewinded my life and someone hit play and I was stuck in that moment" that is exactly what happened to me. I went through this for 4 hours, but it felt like eternity and like it was never going to stop. I had no control over my movements, my arms were spasming uncontrollably and I couldnt stand bc I had no control over my legs, I couldnt even think for myself anymore. The same things just kept happening over and over. I couldnt understand what my boyfriend was saying to me, I didnt know what the words meant, and I couldnt make words myself or even think of what I was trying to say (which was pretty much save me). I finally gave up and decided I was dead and I was never going to come out of this. Finally I did but I was still severely fucked up for maybe 2 weeks, and I now have dejavu all the time and Im on anti seizure medication because this shit fucked my brain up in a way that seems to have been permanent considering this was 6 months ago. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THIS SHIT. I wouldnt wish what happened to me on the person I hate most in this world. It is a hell you do not want to experience.

    okay. I smoke it. The high is a high that can be enjoyed but there are consequences. Since I have begun smoking the "spices" ( i have tried a few) I have had alot of stomach pain, loss of an appetite, and sometimes when I smoke it, I feel like I cant breathe, my head feels swollen,(lots of pressure I guess), My heart sometimes races really fast. If mari were legal this would all be better. I do think I am risking alot with these spices but its the price we pay for pleasure.

    Spice is very popular nowadays. It is not like smoking marijuana at all. I've had my trips on it and they weren't bad, but it was VERY different from marijuana. Spice high lasts longer and, depending on the person, it feels like taking LSD and 3 energy drinks. You hallucinate and it increases effects marijuana has such as, kottonmouth, paranoia, "munchies", and slow thinking abilities. If someone were to try it for their first time, keep in mind that everything that is going on is the drug and is not really happening, also, don't take huge hits and consume alot like you would marijuana. Thats the main reason why people are having negative effects. Remember to take it slow and stay calm!

    Honestly with first hand experiance today after smoking spice I had a really bad reaction, I felt like I was going to throw up but ended up having a full blown screaming seizure. I am 13 years of age, This drug is dangerous. I've learned my lesson. Never ever will I touch anything that will get me high EVER AGAIN. Ever since I had the siezure or Anziety attack I havn't smiled since. I feel depressed and am having thoughts of suicide. Can it be possible that it messed me up mentaly.?
