Marijuana PicThe North Central District Health Department and the Area Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition would like to inform the public that K2 or “Spice” is a synthetic marijuana created in laboratories. People using K2 have reported the following side effects: psychotic episodes, panic, withdrawal, and dependence. “K2 increases heart rate and increases blood pressure. It appears to store in the body for long periods of time, and therefore the long-term effects on humans are not fully know. The use of this substance has been identified as a reason for emergency room visits and calls to poison control centers.”
