In the ranks of the military there
is a new drug that can leave its users hallucinating for days and it is
spreading. This stated by the military officials. It is synthetic
marijuana known as “Spice”. The investigation of over 700 marines and
Navy sailors was because of this new drug. The Air Force has punished 497
airmen in this year; because of this drug. This reported by the
The Deputy Director of the Naval
Criminal Investigative Service stated to AP, “You can just imagine the work
that we do in a military environment,” he also added that the military has a
zero tolerance policy for drugs.
Louisiana drug rehabs have plenty experience
dealing with these issues, since the state was a hotbed of designer drug use
The synthetic marijuana “Spice” can
make people paranoid, hallucinate, suicidal and can it can also cause long
bouts of psychosis. It has been noted that this drug is also increasingly
popular to mainstream drug users.
This synthetic marijuana is a lot
like “bath salts” which is another dangerous new drug. Spice as well as bath
salts was available legally in some states. The state of Louisiana
reported its abuse at the beginning of this year and the Governor took quick
action to make it illegal. People were going to the emergency rooms
because of Spice and bath salts. This drug is not a marijuana substitute
and it is thought that this is why some people try it in the first place.
The Colorado District Attorney’s Office reported to the Denver Post that young
people were getting it and bringing it to schools. That is when they
realized it was a significant problem. Now it has gotten into our
military. I am sure it will be routed out.
Denver drug rehabs should
prepare themselves for dealing with synthetic drug addiction.
