NYC Health: K2

“Synthetic cannabinoids are a class of drugs commonly referred to as K2. Though K2 affects the same area of the brain as marijuana, K2 contains chemicals made in laboratories and sprayed onto dry leaves. These chemicals are not derived from the marijuana plant.
K2 is packaged under numerous brand names, including: Spice, AK-47, Geeked up, Smacked, Green Giant Scooby Snax, Red Giant, Mr. Bad Guy, iBlown, and Trippy.
In New York State, it is illegal to possess, sell, offer to sell, or manufacture synthetic cannabinoids.
Some of the adverse health effects of using K2 include: extreme anxiety, confusion, paranoia, hallucinations, rapid heart rate, vomiting, seizures, fainting, kidney failure, and reduced blood supply to the heart. If you see anyone who is unconscious, unresponsive, or experiencing a seizure, call 911.”
