Together, they will be discussing the teen epidemic of synthetic and designer drugs called Spice/K2 and Blue Blossom (among others), which is being sold in smoke and head shops under illegal pretenses. The drugs are often ingested with the use (and phenomenon) of E-Cigarrettes, which can easily be manipulated into drug paraphernalia. These drugs can cause nausea, paranoia, panic attacks, depression, tremors, and palpitations. Leading surveys show that one in nine 12th graders in America reported using synthetic drugs this past year, making them the most frequently used drug among high school students after marijuana.
Join the conversation and learn more about the harm synthetic and designer drugs are doing to America's youth while be marketed as "legal" substances.
