Dangerous Synthetic Drugs Continue To Emerge

Even though there's a ban on the sale of dangerous synthetic (man-made) drugs, it doesn't seem to be stopping them from being sold in some stores just named and packaged differently. In the past synthetic drugs like K2 and bath salts were readily available in stores and many kids and young adults were using them to get high.

Unfortunately synthetic pot (K2 and spice) and synthetic cocaine (bath salts) don't just create a high they cause the user to experience intense hallucinations, paranoia and can lead to seizures and death.

I don't understand why a legitimate place of business would continue to sell dangerous synthetic drugs if they know the consumer will experience severe hallucinations and possibly take their own life or harm someone else. These illegal man made drugs are still available in some stores and gas stations and law enforcement everywhere is doing their best to crack down on the suppliers and retailers.

According to fox2now "King Karma" was found in a store in Troy Missouri not long ago which is a synthetic cannabinoid. These drugs are extremely dangerous and young people just don't realize the serious risks they're taking when they are use synthetic drugs to get high.

Ksdk.com reports a synthetic drug called "pump it" is another substance some people are using to get high that can be found in filling stations and there are serious risks associated with "pump it" when used. The effects are similar to methamphetamine and cocaine use and abuse. These risks include hallucinations, seizures and death for people using this drug. Pump It is marketed as a vitamin for plants and does say "not for human consumption". Not surprisingly, that's how the manufacturers of all dangerous synthetic drugs get away with marketing them and getting them on the shelves.
