The dangerous high of fake weed

0



The synthetic drug K2, also known as Spice or ‘fake weed,’ is wreaking havoc on cities around the United States — turning some neighborhoods into so-called ‘zombielands.’ Users of the drug have exhibited symptoms like paranoia, psychosis, and even profuse bleeding. Chris rides along with NYPD officers determined to rid their streets of this cheap, destructive, and complex drug, and meets a former K2 addict on a mission to help educate people about the danger that he experienced first-hand.
