What is Synthetic Marijuana?
According to drugfree.org;
Synthetic marijuana is also known as Spice. It is actually a mixture of herbs, spices or parts of a shredded plant. Then it is usually sprayed with synthetic compounds known as cannabinoids that have a similar effect to THC and are labeled as safe but they are more than likely to be much more powerful with severe and unpredictable effects on the brain and body.
