Synthetic Drugs Show Deadly Side Effects | Fox News

Synthetic Drugs Show Deadly Side Effects | Fox News: "Three Texas teenagers suffered heart attacks after smoking an illegal brand of synthetic weed known as K2. While doctors said there is no definite proof the drug is to blame, they still worry it may have been the cause.

K2 is just one of a number of synthetic weed products that have become increasingly popular among U.S. teenagers. Other brands include Blaze, Spice and Red X Dawn.

Essentially, the products are a blend of herbs and spices laced with synthetic cannabis-like chemicals meant to mimic the highs marijuana produces. The Drug Enforcement Administration banned five of these substances nationwide in March due to reports from poison control centers, hospitals and law enforcement."
