Keeping it current with K2/Spice

by

After reviewing a GA Drug Free Workplace Article today, I felt it was important to share the following information:

Synthetic Marijuana

Synthetic Marijuana or fake pot is a psychoactive designer drug derived of herbs sprayed with synthetic chemicals that, when consumed, allegedly mimic the effects of cannabis. Spice refers to a wide variety of herbal mixtures that are marketed as a safe and legal high. Reality is much to the contrary.

During the past several years, a surge of young adults and teens have skirted the illegality of marijuana by purchasing and smoking instead a synthetic form of the drug. Formerly sold in convenience stores around the state, synthetic marijuana, or spice, does lead to a high, but its use comes at a sometimes fatal cost. This past March, Chase Corbitt Burnett, a 16-year-old honor student and soccer player from Fayette County, died shortly after experimenting with the drug.

In response to Burnetts death, the General Assembly last legislative session passed and Governor Nathan Deal signed into law Senate Bill 370, a measure dedicated as Chases Law. In Georgia, even possessing synthetic marijuana is a felony. The prison sentence for possession of the substance ranges from one to 15 years.

Watch for signs: Elevated mood, altered perception, over relaxation, anxiety, paranoia and hallucinations
