Lately in my town, synthetic marijuana has pretty much taken over. I used to think it was just a myth, that the videos i see on Facebook and YouTube were fake. But then people I knew started using it. I would go to a party with some friends and watch people smoke it and start tripping and even passing out. Its not a pretty sight. I read up on it a little, and its not the plants that give you the "high", its the chemicals they spray onto the plants that gets it going. And the people smoking the synthetic weed aren't even aware of the many different chemicals they're putting into their bodies. I hear about young adults overdosing or freaking out so bad, they end up in the hospital. I even have a few friends who were addicted to this fake weed as well! Its a real problem. I just don't understand how synthetic weed causes so many issues, health problems and addictions and its perfectly legal but regular weed isn't? What are your thoughts?
