When I heard about some kids who got extremely sick taking something called 'Spice', I had to find out more about this legal drug.

The youth of any generation have always tried to find ways to get high. As little kids we would spin around in circles until we got dizzy enough to fall over. No doubt you've heard of huffing gas or inhaling Reddi-Wip. As illegal drugs are, well, illegal, kids look for legal ways to get high. Then came a synthetic cannabis called 'Spice.' It's smokable can pretty easily obtainable at head shops and even some gas stations. The problem is just because it's legal doesn't make it safe. It's sold under a variety of names like K2 and Spice.

I'm no expert on the subject, but after hearing that other kids have been hospitalized by taking this legal drug, I wanted to bring it to your attention.
