Legal Synthetic Marijuana-like Drug “Spice” Kills Thirteen Year Old

 

” K2″ also known as” spice”

I will start this post by letting you know that young Brandon died yesterday.  He underwent a double lung transplant in late September, but developed  an infection which ultimately killed him. 

The frightening thing about this story is that although Pennsylvania banned this drug, it is still sold legally in many states.  Please spread the word about this garbage.

In a time when children’s lemonade stands are shut down by the government, there is no reason that this poison should be legally available to anyone.

From CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A 13-year-old boy is fighting for his life at Children’s Hospital.

Brandon Rice is on life support after his parents said he smoked a dangerous synthetic drug that mimics marijuana.

KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin reports that “spice” or K-2 is blamed for at least a dozen deaths nationwide.

Rice has been on life support at Children’s Hospital since the middle of June. His parents said his lungs have been destroyed by the effects of the drug and that he needs a lung transplant.

Right now, he isn’t strong enough to make it through the surgery.

On YouTube, there are hundreds of videos of young men and women having so-called “bad trips.”

Rice’s parents found some of the drug in his room after he was hospitalized. They had no idea what “spice” was or that their 13-year-old had even used drugs.

As they fight for a transplant for their son, they hope he lives long enough to get one. Rice’s parents want other parents and other teenagers to know how dangerous a so-called legal drug that can be bought locally can be.

    “Chris”, you are an idiot. Killing oneself under any influence (or not) is against the law. Comparing “Spice” or any other synthetic potluck of mystery to pot is stupendous. Pot is a natural, unadulterated substance. No additives, or preservatives, unlike the packaged floor sweepings (K2, Spice) they are selling under the premise of aromatics, or incense. My 18 year old son is currently in the ICU, on a respirator, from taking a couple puffs of that Spice crap last night. Luckily, the docs say he will be fine (we’re hoping) after a couple of days hospital stay. Hope you don’t have to learn the hard way…
