Products such as “Spice” are herbs that are laced with these compounds and are sold in convenience stores. Teens and younger adults are the main demographic that use the products. There have been instances where the users end up in the emergency room due to severe reactions to the use. Some symptoms are strong anxiety, hallucinations, and psychotic episodes. People use the synthetic drugs because they usually cannot be detected by drug testing. Service men and women in the military are also being reprimanded if they get caught using “Spice”.
